Yesterday we pondered -- the royal we, man, the editorial -- the likelihood that the Royals could crawl back to .500 this season, an event which, depending on how you looked at the details, seemed about a 10-15% possibility. In case you missed it, a loyal reader delved into the math a little bit more and found that the probably sweet spot for the Royals was something like a 17-13 burst. This is more likely than, say, a straight four game winning streak, or, conversely, going four games over .500 over a much long period (which was my initial guess).
Well thanks to Zack Greinke and an offensive explosion last night against the Angels, that glittering dream is now that much closer to reality, with the Royals ready to jump all over a Baltimore team that still owes us big for stealing away Paul Bako.
