At what point should we take this team seriously?

As we all know, the Royals dug themselves a huge hole in late May with their 12-game losing streaking, dashing whatever bits of hope we had that they might contend this year.  By the end of May, the Royals definitely looked like a crappy team and I'm sure many of us concluded that this was going to be just another horrible Royals season where they maybe played well enough to avoid 100 losses.

But, slowly, they appear to be digging themselves out of that hole.  The Royals have won their last 3 series and 9 of their last 11 games.  The hitting and pitching are both clicking.  So at what point should we take this team seriously?  And by that I don't mean take them seriously, as in they are a contending team.  How long would they have to play well before we think that maybe this isn't an awful team and maybe they are good enough to finish the season within sniffing distance of .500?

I don't really have an answer to this question.  That's why I'm bringing it to the Royals Kingdom/Empire/Principality/Hegemony.  What do you think?  If they are 5 games under .500 at the ASB, should we take them seriously then?  Any thoughts?
