For the Royals due to their total inability to draft. Alex Gordon and the rest of the draftee's have been below average.

Christ, IT'S MAY.

The Cardinals had run like this in September a couple of years ago and won the World Series.

I think they're just shell-shocked after the Boston Massacre. They can snap out of it just as quickly.

Too early to call it doomsday/throwing in the towel, as Frazod mentioned, that it's May.

Get back to me in July/August and that if they're 15 games out.

I would feel differently if the Royals didn't have one of these losing streaks every season that ends the season early. The offense is only getting worse and it won't get any better. There is no shell-shock factor they just cannot hit.

Gordon is a notorious slow starter. He warms up with the weather. Despite that he's hitting .281 and leads the team in OBP.
The only concern I have with him at the minute is his power hitting and RBI's. But then no one in front of him besides Grud's is getting on base. :banghead:

You should try the "Black Capsule" from the MASH the movie thread. It'll help.

I can't wait for the Chiefs to lose their first preseason game.....in 2010.

this losing streak sucks, but it is definitely way too early to be calling the season lost. they are 6.5 games out of first place. that can be made up in one week, let alone four months.

Reality check, the royals aren't going to win the division okay? We knew this coming in, so let's stop talking about it.

That said they've showed sparks and promise at times, we're just in a rough patch and we can get back on track so don't freak out. What I want to see from the Royals this year is being over .500 and they've been there and prior to the Boston slide they were real close to pulling it off, they can do it again.

Defense has been better too...

That offense thing might take some work, but hey... we'll get to it.

The offense has shown me nothing, even if Gordon goes on a hitting streak it won't mean anything because no one will be on base for his singles to score. I think we are in the middle of a 15 game losing streak and that will kill the season.
