You'd think this was a parody...

This Kaegel gem hit the Royals Web Site today.

 

So apparently, we're feeling pretty good about that  0.45% chance of making the playoffs this year. Gems like:

 

"You look at today and we're a good week and a day from being out of first place. That's the way I look at it. If something bad happens and some [other teams] start losing some games and we get on a bit of a run. ... I mean we were 10 games out at the All-Star break in Atlanta and we ended up winning the division. So we're in a good spot."

 

are absolutely ridiculous if thought about with any logic at all. Dick Kaegel must just be looking for some silver lining to this moribund season. "...Jason Kendall with bat-handling skill next..." really? Can we not get a little criticism for hitting a guy who while hitting 2nd has put up numbers like .250/.310/.286 (approx)? The fact that he's gotten 340 plate appearances this season is a complete travesty. The only regular position player under 27 is Billy Butler and these jokers seem happy with that. They feel this team is headed somewhere. We're 10 games under .500 and we probably need to play 48-26 ball to even have a shot at winning the division. I'm not sure if they are delusional or just creating a delusion to spur interest/belief, but it's a delusion nonetheless. If they aren't making every effort to deal every bit of useful veteran off this lineup, it's inexcusable.
