I have GOT to put in a plug for my beloved Royals, who currently sit in FIRST PLACE on August 13th after winning 16 of their last 20 games! This has been a truly amazing run and the best part is - I think they have a VERY GOOD CHANCE at winning the A.L. Central and finishing in first place! That would snap a 29 year playoff drought. I think this is very doable because the Royals have a VERY easy schedule from here on out. If they play up to their ability, they control their own destiny!
Cheers to the Boys In Blue and an exciting finish to this summer, as well as baseball deep into fall!
