Royals fans, it’s time to face reality

Well Royals fans, it’s time.  It’s time to come to the reality that the Royals are back.  Not the Royals we fell in love with the past four years but the Royals we loved prior to 2013.  It wasn’t a love of winning as much as it was a love for the team, the players, and baseball.  The crowds were sparse and the expectation of winning was non-existent; however, they were...

A ground ball just out of reach. A line drive mishandled in right field. A walk to a .145 hitter. A hanging curveball. It all added up to a nightmarish performance for Royals reliever Joakim Soria, who hadn't allowed a run previously this season in nine outings, but gave up four in the eighth inning Friday, allowing the Twins to wipe out a 4-2 deficit and win 6-4.

Friday Notes

Hello darkness, my old friend. The Royals are seven games under .500 and even after an extended run of success, it almost feels right. That doesn’t mean I like it, but it feels like we’re back home again rooting for a bad team. Is this really a bad team? I don’t know. Maybe? They’re definitely a slumping team because even a bad team doesn’t struggle so hard to score just...
