Royals Amaze World With Three Game Winning Streak, Set Sights on October

New, comments

Yea, Detroit is still not very good. Especially big ups to all the boys tonight for beating Justin Verlander and upping Greinke's Cy Young chances 1% or so.

  • Thanks to the three game winning streak, the Royals are now at 54-85. Still 31 games under .500, but a 100 loss season is now much less likely. If that sort of thing matters to you.
  • Robinson Tejeda now has a 3.21 ERA, and is likely to finish the season with a higher WAR than Joakim Soria. Dayton knows pitching again.
  • Billy Butler is silly hot right now. Of course, he's still not good on the 3-6-2 double play, which as Royals Authority pointed out this week, gets turned about three times a season by most players. So a mixed bag I guess. 
  • Does Hillman make late-inning PH, PR and defensive replacement moves more than anyone else in the game? It sure seems like it. I actually kind of dig this sorta of thing, except when it always seems like Willie Bloomquist and Josh Anderson are involved.
  • The Tigers are not good.
