When the young guys do their thing, the plan starts to seem a little more possible.
PLAY THE KIDS! That was one of the first Royals games I actually enjoyed this year because it was at least interesting because all the kids played. Shame it took Mondesi and Salvy's injuries and MAT's covid protocol for it to happen.
Would the Royals have a better or worse record if they'd just started the year with all the rookies on the roster? I'm tempted to say yes, because they'd be replacing some guys who haven't played well (like O'Hearn and Santana), but maybe it would be about the same with the typical rookie struggles?
Either way, we're in a big hole already and it's not even June yet.
WE WON A BASEBALL GAME!
Do you think Melendez can play first? ;)
Not anything to add, but that was the most entertaining game this year, not because we won, but because they finally played the kids. Today I noticed no Santana or Ohearn in lineup. Woohoo!!!!!!
Rivera's mechanics at third on the tag are terrible. He stretches out to get the ball then has to reach back to get the runner instead of allowing the ball to travel to the base where the runner is going.
I didn't know where else to put this :p
