If the Royals can manage that and then build off it, I see no reason why they couldn't at least compete for a playoff spot next year. Expecting them to compete for a playoff spot this year might be a bit unrealistic perhaps......having said that, crazier things have happened in baseball. We shall see.....we've already seen glimpses, now they just need to be more consistent is all.
Your mention of consistency is spot on. We HAVE TO be able to avoid those 6-7-8 game losing streaks that have marked each year forever. Those types of streaks just kill a team. You have to get twice as hot after one to get back out of the hole you've dug. We really need to stop the current one at 2 tonight and get a couple wins.
