Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

6-3 would be a minor disappointment imo. They need to be winning 7+. Royals should be favored in all 9 games.

Fellas I thought this year was going to be different? A hit or two would be nice I want to follow this team. Ventura day anyway hope the Royals turn out to be worth watching more than once a week.

I know it doesn't look good right now, but we're still only 4-7. Let's not slit each other's throats just yet.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

It's just frustrating the way we are losing.

The bullpen was supposed to be a strength and they've blown a bunch of games already. The offense was supposed to be improved over last year and they suck so far. The defense was supposed to be great and but they seem to lack focus.

The only bright spot is the rotation. Vargas has filled in for Santana nicely and Ventura shows signs of being a future #1. This years starters look to be better than last years.

I'm not panicking yet, but if they dig themselves too big a hole like last year, it will be really hard to make the playoffs.

It's overreaction Tuesday. Royals on pace to hit 15 dingers this year!

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

That was a big win for my psyche

Winning tomorrow would be nice considering we cant beat the twins

If Duffy can pitch like that for his next few appearances I say give him a couple starts and see what happens. Big if bt whatever he was smokin.Chen will always be there lol.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

ALEX ****ING GORDON!!!!

Pinto hits one off the base of the left field wall. Gordon picks it up, turns and fires a bullet to Infante to rob him of a double.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

You'd think that

Hosmer
Butler
Gordon
Perez
Moustakas

would lead to 100+ HR and some decent power/OBP. I just don't understand the lack of power from this group. But just a 280/340/450 with 100 HR from the middle of the order would make this team really really good.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

terrible

the offense sucks so bad but what can you do

besides maybe playing valencia vs more lefties the starters are set in stone for a reason. chen on the other hand can gtfo and make room for duffy. don't see how we make the playoffs unless duffy hits his potential. status quo is unacceptable

I wonder if the Royals could beat a good college team as bad as the Tigers beat us.

I had 7-1 in the pool today. I guess they're beating expectations.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

If the Royals were a stock, I'd probably be trying to fade the emotional sell off and buy some. But they're not a stock, they're just losers. That may not change until the owner and gm are clued in to modern baseball, which Glass and DM will probably never be. So, yeah, **** this.

Re: Kansas City Royals: So you're telling me there's a chance

I'm just having a hard time figuring out why the players are so bad. We were told at one time we had the best farm system in baseball. You would think that that talent would carry over to the big league team, but it hasn't. I wonder what kind of player Wil Myers would have been if we had held on to him. Probably just another average outfielder because for some reason, the Royals can't seem to get the most out of their players.

On paper, this should be a pretty good team, but everyone seems to be under-performing. On the days the offense scores some runs, the bullpen lets them down. When the pitchers do well, the batters don't do anything.

And it's really annoying to listen to Yost during all this. He just seems clueless and just makes excuses. I know he shouldn't have much impact on the team's performance, but they just seem to take on his personality and don't give a **** whether they win or lose.

Makes it hard for me to give a ****.
