The September bump

Before yesterday, the Royals had won their previous five games in a row, and it's absolutely the worst thing that could happen to them.

I wrote last month that the best-case scenario for the Royals would be if they'd win every fifth game to give Zack Greinke a chance at the Cy Young Award and lose all the rest of the games. Since I wrote that, they've pretty much done the opposite, winning a lot but losing for Greinke, or at least winning but not getting the win for Greinke.

This is a disaster. The Royals are blowing their chance at a decent draft pick (or, at least, the one decent draft pick that's gonna matter next year).

But hey, at least we have Dayton Moore signed to a long-term extension and Trey Hillman coming back next year and Jose Guillen with one year left on his deal...
