OMG it’s happening!
Almost nobody expected the Kansas City Royals to get back into the wild card race, let alone win their division. Just a minute ago they were seven games under .500 and looking completely done.

HOLY MOLY, a 8 game win streak, all the starters look fantastic, our bullpen is now un-hitable again, even without Wade Davis. Alex Gordon has 5 homers in 4 games and his stroke looks like the second coming of Lou Gehrig!
Wow, September could be lots of fun. Continue reading
