Kansas City Royals Think they Still Have a Chance and They’re Right

After the Kansas City Royals lost three of five to the division leading Detroit Tigers, it seemed that their chance at the MLB Postseason was about shot. Ned Yost and his boys in Kansas City do not think so however. They believe without a doubt that they still have a chance to make the postseason. They are closest to the second wildcard race but are still six games out of that with several teams in front. You know what though; they do still have a chance.

I don’t mean that as a smart comment that they technically have a chance mathematically. They actually have a decent shot at putting together a lot of wins and making up ground quickly there or in the division for that matter. The Tigers are still not playing lights out baseball, .500 at best right now actually. That means the Royals really just need a long winning streak to come their way. That is always possible when a team has the strength in starting pitching that the Royals have.

Those guys can put together a strong streak of wins so fast you won’t even know they’ve won ten in a row until you see them on a highlight show sometime next week. Also considering their home stand, which starts on Tuesday, that win streak could begin very soon. They welcome the last place Chicago White Sox and the struggling Washington Nationals for the majority of the home stand. It is hard to guarantee a sweep of any two teams but the Royals could do it if they play well. Stay tuned for a couple of more weeks to this Royals team. They have at least one more run left in them.
