I wish I could quit you .. Royals. Just when I think I'm out, they pull be back in. Alright enough movie lines, I just can't get away from the Royals, no matter how much I probably should.
A winning road trip, beating Detroit with Justin Verlander on the mound, Jonathan Sanchez allowing one hit .. yeah I'm back.
I never really fully left. The other night, while the Royals were getting waylaid and the NBA Playoffs were on opposite. I bailed and went to the NBA but at halftime I was back, in a game where the Royals really had no chance of coming back, I was still around.
What if? What if? There's a big homestand ahead. Win one game and go on from there. Who knows?
Hosmer starts to hit. Starting pitchers start pitching above their level. The bounces that haven't gone their way do now. No one really separates in the division. Is that the wish list?
I wish I could keep a level head but I'm clearly Royals-bipolar. I think it's my only real vice. It's the team I go back the furthest with and I can't get away from them. Even though I'd likely have a longer life span if I did.
