I've noted with mixed feelings the fact that the Kansas City Royals have been doing much better than they did, in say, August when they were 7 for 27 or .259.
Thus far, in September, they are 13 for 20 or .650. Their last 10 games show 8 wins.
If they had played in May, June, July and August the way they're playing now, they'd be heading for the playoffs. (yes, I know the season began on March 31, but they actually did reasonably well leading off this season -- .444 for March and April)
Come on Royals -- we know you can do it!
