A standard journalistic cliche is to take your own reaction to an event and universalize it, to make it everyone's reaction or, at least, the reaction of many. That's basically what I'm tempted to do here. Driving around tonight, I thought, "wow, the Royals took two of three in New York, maybe there is something to this team." And so, you write the "Royals proving skeptics wrong" post.
So, the Royals have proved the skeptics wrong with an impressive mid-week series against the Yankees.
- Hosmer homered (looks weird writing that) and the Yankees were never able to recover. They were emotionally destroyed. Hosmer is Ozymandias without the irony.
