Royals come to town as contenders

The last time the Kansas City Royals reached the postseason they won the World Series. That was back in 1985. The Royals have been rebuilding ever since and just ended a nine-year stretch of sub-.500 seasons with a 86-76 record last season. They head to Arlington this weekend leading the AL Central. But the Royals, with all their young talent, are not without problems.

Musings at the mid-week: ■ Ned Yost: Manager of the Year. Sure has a nice ring to it, huh? ■ Weird ring, maybe? ■ Assuming the Royals claim the A.L. Central and earn a postseason berth for the first time in 29 years, Yost would have to be a lock for the managerial honor. ■ Right, Buck Showalter? ■ Sorry, I left my blanket out in the rain, but … August, sometimes, has a way of not transitioning into a good September. read more
