Well, you don’t need me to tell you what this start means…if you do, then I’ll try not to lead you astray.
Or, you can go here to the Kings of Kauffman for one opinion.
Starting Pitching: Hit or miss…but damage has been limited. No blow outs.
Relief Corps: Outside of the Rookies, we haven’t been impressive. Soria is mostly himself, Tejada is a bit off his game.
Starting Lineup: Getz is playing well though many believe he won’t sustain it. Aviles is on the bench and needs to stop stepping towards 3rd base on the weight shift forward. Alex Gordon is showing less suckage than games past. So far, Melky and Francoeur haven’t been bad, and Kila is slow starting. Treanor is looking like everything Kendall was supposed to be but cheaper.
Where to go from here: Well, I am waiting for the day when the young and impressive bullpen to hit a slump (it’s going to happen, but I think they can work their way through it). When that happens, we’ll start to see more the of the same ol’ Royals…minus a few problems. Overall defense has been great…and should be better than years past, but as the season goes on and the bats quiet down, I think more errors will come out.
I have been enjoying the games so far, and like many before me have said, just enjoy it! These are the times when we can forget how dreadful our recent history has been…and live temporarily what is to come in seasons ahead.
