I got the Royal BLUE-s

Seriously folks, I'm not sure what to write here. I'm kinda flying by the seat of my pants with this post. Quite frankly, what is there to say about this team anymore? Sure, I could throw stats at you all day (you all know I don't like to dive too deep into the advanced statistics) but it's not going to divulge anything that you guys don't already know about this pathetic team.

It's sad, really.

The fact of the matter is - and being such a true-blood Royals geek - it pains me to even write anything about this team anymore. I still watch every game played, but I don't want to ever say anything when it's over. It's like every loss makes me more and more introverted ... to the point that I start wondering why in the Sam Hell I put myself through the misery EVERY FRIGGING DAY.

I know I haven't been posting on here often anymore. I'm sorry for that. But I just can't find the motivation to drag myself in front of this keyboard and gripe about what's going wrong every day. And God knows there's nothing remotely right with this club to brag about.

I check in on every Royals minor league affiliate every day to see the progress they're making down on the farm. It's encouraging to see five of the six top prospects in the organization at Hi-A Wilmington. That still means, however, that those guys are at least 2-3 years away. But what's even more depressing is to watch the struggles of Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer this year. Neither player has hit much - though Moose does have 12 dingers at this point and is hitting over .300 in his last 10 games.

I think Moustakas needs to get the call to Double-A within the next couple of weeks. He's hitting in a horrendous park right now at Wilmington, and Arvest Ballpark in Springdale would be a much more hitter-friendly park as he takes off in the second half.

For some reason, I just can't bring myself to gripe today. Keep checking in with me, hopefully I will explode here in the next few days and just let all that I've bottled up out. It just might happen if these yahoo's don't finally get Zack a win tonight.

I feel you...I feel like this organization is Wile E Coyote chasing after the Road Runner.

BUT...we have a team in KC, and it will get better eventually. I've resigned myself to the fact that it might not even be Dayton that gets us there, but it will happen.
