This defeatist pessimism is frankly unwelcome here.

The run differential thus far should have warned everyone ‘don’t buy the hype’. The White Sox were always the best team in this division and were always going to win it running away. They have more talent than the Royals right now at the Big League level and more importantly, most of their young guys, especially their pitchers, have established themselves at the major league level after REALLY struggling for a couple years. At least our pitching staff leads the American League in walks issued, so they can look at that as an easy starting place to strive for improvement.

You've simply lost your patience and perspective. This is certainly no different for the Royals 2018 draft crop. They’re all going to have to take their lumps for a while. It’s how you learn. When Hosmer, Moose, Salvy, Duffy and Ventura came up they didn’t have immediate success. It took a few years to build something. Ventura tries so hard he drove his Jeep off an embankment and died. Does that effort mean nothing to you? Give em time. Soler needs time. Michael A. Taylor needs time. We probably need to pay Dozier better. Keller, Lynch, Singer need time. Kowar just needs a ump with a more favorable strike zone. I'm sure the Royals are trying as hard as they can to please you every night. Gutierrez may not hit much, but at least he's a solid defensive player you can always rely on.

I'm encouraged that Mondesi made it safely home; getting on an airplane -pressurized at 30,000 feet- without further injury to himself. Poor Benny. You must believe he cracked his rib on purpose so he wouldn't have to face his old Boston family this weekend. Not true. He hurt himself throwing a ball in from the outfield. That's dangerous! Wade Davis is trying as hard as he can for you, working on a 45 mph change up. Bubich goes out there and gives it his all, even though he's got the word "Bitch" in his last name. He has feelings; deep, complex feelings that can be easily damaged by those who would mock him. People like you who have lost faith. Baseball reference says the team at this point has a 0.1% chance to make the World Series. So there is hope.

I'm shocked and disappointed that you have posted these comments towards the Royals. Shame on you. They come across as nothing more than the snide defeatist comments of someone reveling in their losing. You must be a miserable individual. I suggest your mom must have birthed you out of wedlock. You should engage in more meaningful baseball discussions here, and be more positive and productive. Surely other people in this thread will soon point this out besides me. Chin up little camper!
Losing Beni is rough and kills what is an already struggling offense. That's frustrating, because with all the injuries piling up, it's hard to imagine this team being able to generate enough offense to win games. I'm not 'giving up', but you can only lose so many key players for extended periods of time and still have any realistic expectation that they can compete night in and night out. It sucks, but it is what it is. I, DO NOT, by any means, revel in their losing like some seem to do on here. And again, check my post history in this thread lately versus yours, if you wanna talk about meaningful baseball discussion. I'll stand on my body of work in the baseball thread versus yours anyday.

Sorry, George, that you didn't like me calling you out in this thread and it hurt your feels. Super creative of you to copy my post to you, though. Just top notch work on your part. :-)

a lot of unprofessional at-bats.

Guys not slapping to opposite field to move runners, etc.

Lots of selfish swings (for the fences), rather than doing the big-league thing.

Absolutely agree with this DJJasonP. I've never seen so many unprofessional at bats. Hell, Dozier hasn't had a true major league swing in what seems like forever. Looks like he's swatting flies up there. Just horrible. Back to Omaha says I.

And he's not alone. Hells/bells, Solar could hit me in the face with his bat and I don't think he'd even cause a bruise.

Nice power hitters.....not.

I had no idea Billy Butler held the record for more 3+ doubles games in a season.

Michael Brantley is the 5th player in the modern era(since 1900)to have 3+ games n a season w/ 3+ doubles.According to the Astros other 4 are:
4 2009 Billy Butler
3 2007 Aaron Rowand
3 2006 Mike Lowell
3 1926 Earl Sheely

Give em time? The players you mention aren't rookies! There's a reason other teams got rid of them! They can't hit!!! All these young arms are getting screwed by the coaching philosophy of this club; don't give the batters anything to hit!!! These young arms should be throwing strikes regardless of the count....especially at the spacious K!!!! These coaches/scouts all suck!!!!

I don't think the Royals are getting excellent pitching coaching, I don't know about the hitting instruction (they're tight, and several guys seem to have no plan), and I'm not sure what is going on with Perez.

Salvador has never been a good pitch framer, but now he's trying so hard to be better at framing, he's noticeably jerking the glove a lot and costing his guys strikes at the bottom of the zone. Happened a handful of times to Keller in the 1st last night. They'd be better off if he just didn't try. At all.

I was not a fan of the Cal Eldred hire and remain not a fan of his. I also was not a fan of Matheny and, though he has improved in some aspects of things, I still think he has trouble getting his team to relax and play loose. That's why they're so streaky and also points to why the situational hitting has been so poor.

Anyway, they could clean-sweep the coaching staff and I wouldn't blink. I don't think there's anyone in that group that really is outstanding at what they do.

FYI, that was a TIC post by George making fun of my previous post towards him. It was not intended to be taken as a serious post.

Yikes, Quad City!

Good lord, Asa . . . . . . really struggling with your control. And I think we can almost *officially* write Seuly Matias off at this point. There's some international money you wish you had spent differently, *cough* Juan Soto *cough* Fernando Tatis Jr . . . . . . . . .
