    I know its unlikely but is anyone watching this Lopez kid pitch for the Royals today? He has so much movement on his fastball. He looks like he might be pretty good some day.

    There is a lot of young talent on the field these days and it gives me a little hope.

    Viloria called up from A ball because of Salvy's injury gets his first MLB hit with a 2-run double. :Cool:

    Royals win 9-1.

    Thats 5 in a row and 7 of 8.

    More importantly, they are fun to watch again with their young guys playing well. Even Gordon looks better with the bat.

    Blame me for Jorge Lopez losing his perfecto in the 9th. I was busy, and someone told me about what was going on, so I started watching on my phone as the Royals made the last out in the top of the 9th. It's all my fault.:Facepalm:

    I had no idea that happened. The wife and I took a quick trip to the Mexican Riviera and I missed that outstanding performance. :eek:

    KC has actually stepped it up a bit in the past couple of weeks. Granted, it's September and some teams have thrown in the towel, but it looks like KC is still playing with a purpose.

    I am actually impressed with the younger guys on the team. The starting pitching from the rookies has been solid. The bats from the rookies are coming around. Mondesi looks like the player many were hoping he would be. If the 1st year players like O'Hearn, Dozier, Phillips, etc can make the improvement that Mondesi has, things will be looking up in 2019.

    Another win last night. I can't get too down on this team. They'll still lose 100 games, but I respect the fact they haven't quit. It would have been pretty easy to just go through the motions after a terrible June-early August.

    Edit:
    There were a couple of plays the Twins made (or didn't make) last night that shows the Royals still have their heads in the game. The clip below is one of them.

    The other was a fly ball from Salvy that went into the gap. The rightfielder ran right over the ball, but made no effort in actually making a play. If it was any other player but Salvy, it would have been a triple, and had it been Mondesi or Whit, it could have been an inside the park homer.

    These Royals continue to be fun to watch the last month or so.

    Down 4-3 in the 9th, they win it on a Salvy grand slam 8-4.

    Thats 4 walk off wins in their last 13 games.

    Mondesi is going to be a star. 3-4 today with another HR and another SB.
