Schoenfield Hot on Royals


None of the piece's content is earth-shattering. But here are some fun excerpts: 1. "To say this is the biggest series the Royals have played in years isn't an overstatement; even during last year's feel-good season the closest they got to first place after June 1 was 4.5 games." ...I didn't realize this. 2. "The Royals are 0-5 against the Tigers this season, getting hammered 32-12 in the process. " ...Ugly. 3. "Are the Royals just hot at the plate right now or are they finally progressing toward their true talent level?" ...Great question, and Schoenfeld tries to answer it. 4. "The numbers suggest a few players may show slight improvement; I guess the good news is that nobody is over performing expectations by much and the Royals have still gone 36-32." ...Okay, true. But what of Schoenfield's earlier point about volatility in projections for young players? - TL
