Six in a row!

The Royals won their sixth in a row tonight, the longest current winning streak in the league. They're now only 3 games out of 3rd place and 4.5 games out of 2nd in Central. It's not going to be something to brag about because Minnesota's running away with it, but the Royals could make a run at 2nd place. I would be more than happy if they finished somewhere out of the bottom at this point considering how poorly we've finished in the last few years.

Royals seem to have less trouble with the good pitchers. It's those horrid ones that seem to be able to blank them

I'm eating crow.

Looks like they've turned it around short-term. Still waiting for Hosmer and Moose to actually do something before I go into homer mode.

So here's an honest question (long-term outlook thoughts, you sparked in me)...

Say Eric Hosmer eventually becomes John Olerud (.295/.398/.465) which seems like a more realistic "Ceiling" than his original "Ceiling" (Joey Votto).

That would require him to continue developing his OBP skills (which have been solid this year), raising his average a bit, and becoming a consistent 15-20 HR/40+ 2B guy.

Can the Royals win with THAT guy, rather than the one they were hoping he'd become?

Yes. Without the power, I think Hosmer's ceiling is Joe Mauer. If he can put up stats similar to Olerud, then we can win with that.
