So what we're 7 1/2 back or something. Playing well but against a weaker NL.

What do you all think? I hate to be overly optimistic but it is kinda nice to daydream about playoff chances. If we can continue to get solid starting pitching and the offense can stay somewhat hot....

The only thing I hope for is to avoid another one of those long slumps. Eight losses in a row. 9 of 10. 13 of 15. Do that, and a .500 record is possible.

everytime this year someone has said anything remotely positive about this team, they tank for a spell (or longer).

that said, this team sucks balls and shouldn't even be in the majors.

::whispers:: go royals!!!

Cannon.

I get so excited from the launching of items at stadiums. As does much of the population. Pure genius to take the next step and launch food.

Na. An ex partner of mine directs the video at the K. He likes to put me up, but knows not for the kiss cam. Its a fun trick for when I go with friends though.

Nothing funnier than when they show two players on the opposing bench during kiss cam.

I thought it was particularly fitting when they did it at the Giants games.

Yeah, I'm not holding my breath until we see what they do once they get back in the AL rotation.

Looking forward to the series in Baltimore next week.

I don't think that i can say that the Royals are gonna finish better than 4th in the division, but i do think that the royals are a team that should be right around .450-.500 at the end of the year which is a drastic improvement.

One of the things the Royals will need to sustain the success they have been having recently is the development of a leadoff hitter, whether it be Gathright or someone else. DeJesus is fully capable of being a leadoff hitter, but with his .470ish avg. w/ RISP, I think he'd be better off batting no. 5 where he'll have more run-producing opportunities
