The Royals were so good for that stretch of 20 games that a natural regression was bound to happen. This team that is not that good.

The offense is average when completely healthy, but right now, the lineup being put out there just isn't going to get the job done.

I hope I'm wrong, but I do think the Royals have made their run.

I think they just finish right around .500

Go ahead and bash away smile

Well if there was anything to bash you for I would, but unfortunately I think you are spot on. I was hoping for them to finish 8-10 games above .500, that could still happen. But making the playoffs, nah just a pipedream this yr. Finish good....plan for playoffs in 2014. Hope you made some money yesterday ya damm degenerate fu--ck.

The Detroit series is still huge. If they lose it, then stick a fork in them.

The Detroit series looks to be one that will decide their season. Not technically. But for all intents and purposes, they are done if they go into Motown and lose 4 or 5. If they win 3 or 4, I'll go ahead and hold on to my excitement. They played the 4 game Boston series and were great. I'm not ready to give up on them quite yet.

However, today was an abortion. Jacob Turner was god awful today. Couldn't find the strike zone. He threw 89 pitches and ONLY 38 STRIKES. He walked 6 in 5.0 IP. If this team had a little more plate discipline, that should have been 8 or 9. If they had a little more in their bats today, the guy should have been gone early. He was just terrible. Yet he got out of it with only 1 ER. A lineup with Escobar, Getz, Johnson, and Dyson is untenable. The same can be said for one with Escobar, Getz, Carroll, and Dyson.

With Tejada done for the season, the Royals better hope that Bonifacio or Ciriaco (who is doing pretty well in AAA) can help in the infield. Johnson isn't doing it. Nor is Getz. Nor is Carroll. Moose needs to come back as strong as he was before his little bump and/or bruise.

This team still has a great chance to make a run at the WC, but if they don't get it down in Motown, it's more or less over.

I do agree that the Detroit series is pretty much it.

But that's where my bad feeling starts to creep in haha.

I'll be rooting like hell though for the boys. No matter what, they've made baseball exciting late into the year...which like it or not, is a big accomplishment for us Royals fans.

Good lord people, this is the first series Royals have lost in god knows how long, and all of a sudden we are going back down to the bottom. At least other teams in wild card are losing a bit too. We are pretty much exactly where we were when we were winning.

We are still in this thing as long as we win a couple in Detroit.

I still think this team has something in it. But the big boys need to carry us.

I'd guess 91 wins would give an AL team a real good chance of a playoff spot.

Tampa and Oakland, the 2 wildcards as of today, both need to go 24-20 to get to 91.

The Royals now need to go 29-15 to get to 91 wins. With 11 games against the Tigers, that's gonna be very difficult. Losing 2 to Miami hurts. Royals MUST win 4 in Detroit, barring a meltdown by 3 or 4 other AL teams down the stretch.

The current rate at which this team is winning is not something that can be maintained. I think fans are nervous that a big losing streak is coming. I don't buy into that. But they aren't going to win 8 of 10 games the rest of the way.

They need to send Getz packing as well. Call up Ciriaco and let him try to earn a roster spot. Getz is awful. Johnson was awful. Carroll is a career .270 hitter with no power who is past his prime, whatever that was. I don't really have any qualms with the Bonifacio pick up. He's a pretty speedy guy who can plug holes in the infield. He almost certainly won't be as bad as Getz and Johnson.
