On Opinion: Phenom gives Royals hope for future during present collapse

Collapse? They're something like 12 games over .500 since the All Star Break. They've been playing incredibly well for the last two months and have put themselves in the playoff hunt.

If you want to talk about bad baseball, go back to May...or the seven game losing streak. But you can't call what is happening now a 'collapse'.

The Royals have one of their best records in team history after the ASB this year. This writer obviously doesn't know anything about the Royals.

He stands a fine chance... of looking great in pinstripes some day.

ahhh..you must be refering to the Yankees. As in, the New York Yankees who currently hold the same record as the Kansas City Royals despite spending hundreds of millions more.

What collapse?! Who wrote this, or at least who wrote the headline?

I told my friend before the game started, "as long as Kelvin Herrera does not pitch in relief we should be good". Why Ned, Why? IMHO, Yost has cost the Royals about 5 or more games this year, with hesitant pitching changes, and putting in pinch hitters that end up taking a called third strike.

"Dayton Moore’s pitching-first philosophy pays dividends."

To the extent that they are capable of playing better than .500 ball. The Royals will probably lead the American league in team ERA. I can't remember the last American league team ERA leader which made the playoffs.

in 2012, 4 of the top 5 AL teams in ERA made the playoffs. In 2011, 3 of the top 5 did. It seems pretty clear that a good pitching staff is important to making the playoffs

Your facts are no match for TheSynchophant's blanket statements.
