Here we go again. . .
It's about time the bandwagoners hop off the ride. Unfortunately, they are going to miss the best part. Well, not the best part, because they'll be back on the wagon in September. This Royals team is way too talented to give up on them now. Just as easily as they got to 17-10 they can be 27-20 in two weeks. They are plenty capable. Their pitching has fell off for the past week, but that was expected. Our pitchers aren't done yet. Everyone has a dry-spell. Our offense hasn't got it going at the right times yet this year. They can score 6 runs in an 11-6 Yankee win, but James Shields can never get more than 2 runs in support it seems. The offense will spark though. Since when does Billy Butler hit .230? He won't. We all know it. Hosmer needs to take some pressure off himself, he is pressing too much. Moose is doing just fine now despite his numbers. Escobar is more consistent than what his stats say. Cain, although slumping, still has numbers that no one really expected out of him. Gordon, in my opinion, should be in MVP talks to this point (certainly not leading, however). Dyson is finally starting to steal some innings from Frenchy. Even if Dyson isn't who I want to see everyday in the outfield, at least he is a playmaker. Things will start to look up for the Royals very soon. This is a big statement series. Win the series in L.A. and show the doubters we aren't pretenders.
