Royals Rumblings - News for September 12, 2014

But it's not too soon to give Dayton Moore and the Royals credit for making a trade that played out exactly the way they said it would. I'm not talking about wins and losses and playoff berths - which was certainly a significant part of my objection to it - but that the players they were acquiring have performed the way the Royals thought they would.... Maybe the trade won't propel the Royals into the playoffs this year, in which case we'll have to judge its legacy anew.

Royals Offense, The Hunt for Blue October Looking Lost

In the movie version of the 2014 Royals' season, which I picture as something like Major League , this is the part of the movie when the slow, sad music starts to play. This is the part of the movie when everything that had been going well for the scrappy underdog starts unravelling: the veterans start looking old, tired and the young phenoms start looking too young, too green.
