ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

White Sox 5, Royals 2

Make that seven losses in the last nine games now for the Royals. At this rate they are going to pull a different kind of #15of20 – the bad kind.

This was never a playoff team on paper, but things were into place in such a way where the Royals could have backed themselves in with continued good play. That good play is gone now, and has been replaced by generally bad baseball. The Royals can’t score runs, can’t hit for power, are having defensive lapses, and can’t pitch in key situations. Other than that, everything is going well.

At 64-61, the Royals now face the possibility of finishing the season under .500. And if that happens you’d have to assume some heads will roll. Which ones will be interesting to watch this offseason.
