I think Gordon has found his groove and will continue to hit above-average and play stellar defense. Butler will continue to be a great foundation of our offense, and Escobar will continue to be a great foundation of our infield (and his surprising offensive stats might dip down, but could still remain a plus).
Barring injury, we will have Perez and Cain for full seasons. That's beautiful. With Myers coming up, our outfield offensive production will rise.
Guthrie may have found a right fit for him in KC. I hope so. I am optimistic he has. We still have solid relievers in Crow, Holland, Herrara, and Collins, and we'll see about Soria, though I'm expecting he's done in one way or another.
We have one weakness. Granted, it's a big one. But it can be addressed this offseason.
I'm really looking forward to next April.
Oh i look forward to next year too, but im not getting my hopes up or getting excited yet.
The Royals need to actualy "Show ME" something before i get my expectations up. Not falling for the Fools gold of a good Aug/Sept anymore. . This organization continues to prove over and over that they are at their best when they have nothing to play for.

One of the best plays Matt has ever made.
