Of the Royals' last 13 games--that's since July 9th--the Royals have won 3 and lost 10. Worse,they've lost badly, getting beaten by four runs or more, including some ugly games like 7-1, 15-5 and 7-1. Starting pitching has failed. Relief pitching has failed. Defense has failed. Offense has failed.
Let's make some trades with our better bits, and get the youngsters up here. They can't do any worse.
