Just a touch more patience

I am more than ready to get rid of pitchers like Kyle Davies, and Luke Hochevar not too far behind him. 

But the Royals have relief coming, and immediately, in the form of: the Minnesota Twins, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Oakland A's. These three teams all have had a ton of difficulty scoring, something that it looks like will be the exact opposite with the Texas Rangers and the Cleveland Indians

So...the Royals played 10 games against what could be two of the top three offenses in the AL, and as one would expect, their pitching got pasted. 

Now they're off to play 9 games against what could be the three worst offenses in the AL. One would expect the Royals to have better results from both their starters, and in the win column. Of course, I'm sure those teams are looking at the Royals starters' ERA and perhaps licking their chops a little bit, too. 

Remember, the Royals have had success against the Seattle Mariners and LA Angels, two teams that have also had trouble scoring, but not quite as much as the three the Royals are about to play. 

In any case, while I believe Dayton Moore is very, very close to where he'll have to make a change for the sake of change, even if he knows replacing Davies and/or Hoch in the rotation with the likes of Mazzaro or Suppan isn't really any better -- I do think we should give them this 9-game stretch to prove that they can at least pull out some decent starts vs. teams that aren't good offensively.

And if not, well, may they be banished forthwith from the Royals kingdom.
