Yes, the Royals have won 3 of their last 4 and should have won on Saturday night. Ned Yost is an entirely different manager. He seems more certain of himself and aggressive. Also third base coach Dave Owens, who screwed up several times, was shown the door and that's improved too. I'm not sure these are the Real Royals any more than that really crappy team we saw in Texas is, but this version is sure easier on the eyes.
Score now in Baltimore: 3-3 top of the 9th. All three runs for the O's off home runs, two off Zack Greinke and one off reliever Blake Wood to tie the game. Alas, no win for Greinke tonight.
Hopefully that new manager smell isn't quite worn off!
I am a New Yorker by birth, and have been a life long Giants, Jets and Mets fan. (I never could really get into rooting for the Yankees.) I moved to Vermont for my high school years. I lived in the Philadelphia area for several years. Then I returned to Vermont to live. Now, I have been in Kansas City for twenty years. I am a Royals and Chiefs fan. I'm a graduate of the University of Vermont. My tax dollars go to MU, but I am an all around fan of our area Big 12 colleges. I love living in a town with a vibrant sports scene, where sports news gets more comments than any other news. I am passionate but thoughtful. I don't call names. However, if someone needs a butt kicking, I'll give it. So, that's where I'm coming from.
