As we end the season, I have to admit I have a little disappointment with the Royals. Maybe I was expecting too much but right now as we play our last game against the Indians, I reviewed our record and find some interesting tidbits.
We were 10-9 the White Sox, 11-8 against the Tigers, 9-7 with three games left against the Twins but we did go 5-13 against the Indians. Overall we were minus 2 against the Central with winning records against three of the four teams including division leading White Sox. If nothing else, we nearly broke even with teams in our division and maybe it shows we are now competitive against team we need to beat next year.
As mention, we were 10-9 against the White Sox, 4-0 against Brewers, 4-3 against Astros plus a winning record against Seattle Mariners. With four games left, we are a plus 5 after the All Star break. The reality is that overall we are 12 below .500 and that is also a fact. The reason as I mention, inconsistent pitching in particular from the starting pitcher but we have a young staff that could develop. The team is 12 games under .500. That is a fact that can’t be denied since we play 162 games.
