No doubt. But the Royals have placed a premium on defense and athleticism for a long time and have a minor league system stocked with stud defenders.

Brett Eibner, Lane Adams and Bubba Starling are all premium level defenders in the OF.

Raul Mondesi has the tools and feel to be an elite SS (who hits, to boot). In Cuthbert - who has greatly improved his body and agility - and Dozier, there are a couple of high-level and close guys who have above average skills at 3B.

And the best part? Cain, Hosmer, Moustakas, Escobar and Perez - the key guys in that defensive cog - are still controlled for 2-3 more seasons each.

The Moustakas play the last inning is a great visual example of how the World Series would have ended if Jirschele had sent Alex Gordon. Unless a SS with a good arm who is a very reliable defender inexplicably yipped the throw, Gordon was dead.

This is like in the movie Swingers where Vince Vaughn keeps telling his buddy that you always double down on 11 baby, and he's like obviously not always I freaking lost.

His most high profile call was absolutely the correct decision, but damnit we still lost. Would have been something to make them execute that throw and win game 7 on a play at the plate - 90% odds he's gunned - but damnit we lost anyways.

Exactly.

Volquez had been cruising, his pitch count was low, and he did not look tired.

His problems this inning started when he stopped throwing first-pitch strikes. When you're constantly trailing 2-0 in a count, you become much more hittable. As we have seen today.
