I don't think they LIKE losing. I think they're just out of their league. You don't go through High School and college being the best player on your team and then just not care when you get to the majors. I refuse to believe they would have no shame in how bad they are. They just aren't good enough. I mean, I can want to win all I want, but Pujols would own me... It doesn't mean I wouldn't want to strike him out, but that's really irrelevant at such a high level of competition where desire is almost taken for granted.

We should promote the entire AA Wranglers and put the rest the team on waivers.

I think the only people that would be claimed would be Grudz, Sanders, and maybe Mientciewicz.

I agree in a way and disagree in another. I agree that some of the younger players are playing a bit over their heads. But I likewise think there are players who have been around a few seasons who are so used to losing and the mindset it creates that they just don't give a rats azz anymore. They are the ones who need to go. Along with Baird.

And there's nothing wrong with that. I like Sweeney and Affadelt's off-the-field things, such as signing autographs and having pictures taken. I'm sure they're great people.

But at the same time, they have to produce in the field, which most of us Royals fans would agree, that they have not even done it. Either it's inconsistency or being injured, it doesn't help the franchise. (Unless you're David Glass of course)

Since the Royals are at 11-36 right now, I wouldn't be suprised if the majority of the guys gave up trying, considering that the Royals have gone through that dreaded 13 game losing streak.

If it were the Chiefs, I'd cheer for them the year they go 0-16. But when the league and team owners theirself don't want them to win, I don't waste my time. If I go to KC, I'll check out a game and cheer my heart out, but on anything more than a per-game basis, there's no reason to cheer for them, Even if they go .500, so what, its not like our owner's going to take advantage of it.

Yanks let K.C. back into game, PATHETIC
From: truthserum 2:56 pm
To: ALL (1 of 12)

199577.1

It's like they put up their 5-spot in the first inning against a fat bu m who probably wasn't even mentally and/ or physically able to pitch today then decided to take a nap against the mop-up man they're being shut down by.

I wonder how this team would've fared if the mop-up man had started.

The 2006 Yankees lack a killer instinct that past Yankees teams under Torre had and this game is an example of it.

Wright is pitching nicely, he's not the problem.

It is inexcusable that the Yankees haven't scored a run in the 4 innings after the first one!!!!! They are napping and if they keep it up, they may/ will pay for it, cuz something tells me K.C. has at least one more threat in them. All it takes is a walk, a reach on error, or an infield hit then a blast to make it a game again -and a game Mo has to come into when he shouldn't have to
