Glazer: Down & Out in Kansas City. What Else is New?

For a team that showed some promise in April, the Kansas City Royals got completely shot down in May…

Now it’s late June and the Royals are finally where they feel most comfortable – in LAST PLACE.  On a positive note, they are 5-5 in the last 10 games and it’s worth noting that former last place team Minnesota went 9-1 during that same period.

Hey, at least the Royals have tried to compete and gain our interest lately.

They brought up Eric Hosmer, who many feel is the first bigtime star this team has had since George Brett. Eric did draw some folks to the stadium at first, but has cooled off with a .283 batting average and just 5 homers. The Royals then brought up power hitter Mike Moustakas. He’s hitting .250 with 1 home run and 1 RBI. Wow!

But we need some pitching and we have none. So they brought up young Danny Duffy. He’s 1-2 with a 5.03 ERA.

But other than Hosmer, nobody has been real exciting thus far.

Of course putting together a young team is never easy or overnight. And given the losing culture of this franchise, the fans are already fed up. Attendance is down and will drop even further with the continued losing which is likely.

I do have to say the Royals are losing much closer games now.

They are in most games until the end, and that is a good sign.

With improved pitching, hitting, finding some power and better relief in the next two years, this ball club could sneak into maybe second or third.

As far as becoming a real contender, that’s nowhere in sight. No chance.

I mean, to win the American League title in the next few years, not just the division.

The Royals are still one of baseball’s worst teams.

P.S. Maybe their best hitter, Melky Cabrera, who leads the team in homers with 9 is up for a trade. The Royals want a younger guy who can help…

Later. It’s always going to be later, isn’t it?

    Royals Are Full of It
    Every year they have a plan to bring up a few guys who will make this team for real. It never happens. I remember when it centered around “the new Brett” Carlos Beltron, he was good not great. The team did nothing with him, still stunk. Of course than it was Gordon, Butler and Grienke. Last place for two more years. I see Hosmer as a good player, but nobody else has done anything to brag about. I agree this team is a loser and will continue to lose. I don’t go to games anymore, unless I want a tan and a hotdog.

    Please Stop Talking About The Royals
    How big of a hick dumb ass does one have to be to listen to their bullshit. They stink and always will stink. Stop reminding us, no I don’t want to leave. We can pretend we are big time with two crappy pro franchises, yes that includes the lowly Chiefs. This year they will stink.

    I don’t agree about the Chiefs. They will be a good team in two years. The Royals won’t.

    Stop With The Royals
    Glazer go to the Chiefs, PLEASE. We know the Royals are a joke. We get it. Let it go, unless they do something even dumber. Like win.

    Things Take Time
    Glazer if you knew anything about baseball you would know the Royals have the finest Farm system around. You and the Royals fans who don’t get it please don’t jump on our bandwagon next year when we win the division, ok. The Royals are on their way people.

    Hearne Makes You Cover The Royals
    My guess is without Greg Hall you get the fun of covering the Royals. Joy. I like Tiger Tail, what you smoking?

    I can’t decide whether to punctuate this comment with, “That’s the spirit!” or “That’s telling them!”

    Far be it from me to put my hand inside the puppet head that is Craig Glazer!
