Wow, it actually happened…
Royals GM Dayton Moore did it; the Royals are a power team!
Yep, six players are in double figures with home runs. That’s a first for a KC team. In fact, two players may break 30 home runs for the year, Sal Perez and Mike Moustakas.
The Mighty Moose likely will hit for plus 40…unreal.
A team that has never hit for power is now doing just that.
And with the power hitting comes wins.
The Royals are hot.
In fact baseball’s worst team in April is now in second place over .500 – crazy.
The Royals for the first time ever are a dangerous home run hitting bunch. Damn.
Okay, okay, only two players made the All Star team thus far, Perez and Jason Vargas. However Moose and Hosmer should be on the team. Moose has 22 homers and Eric is one of baseball’s most dangerous hitters.
Hosmer is also a fantastic first baseman.
So these Royals deserve the honor.
More importantly, the Royals are a contender for the division.
Will Dayton Moore keep Eric and Moose or trade them? Tough call.
What a comeback.
I said the Royals were done in June…looks like I was wrong.
The entire league is at .500ish. And all but Houston the Yanks and Boston look like maybes. So the Royals could get in and do their thing one more time.
