At long last, this awful, painful Royals baseball season is through.
What a nightmare year it's been.
We can still hold out hope that our presidential nominee, Zack Greinke, can win the Cy Young Award (I'm sure we'll be discussing it either way). But ultimately, it feels like a relief that the season is over.
Do we have much to look forward to in 2010? Nope. The roster's probably gonna look pretty much the same. Will we get a coveted No. 1 overall draft pick? Nope. We didn't suck quite enough for that. So we'll get the No. 4 or No. 5 overall pick, and he'll cruise around the minors for five or six years and then maybe break in with the Royals for a season or two until he washes out.
Gosh, that sounds cynical. But hey, this is the Royals.
I will always root for this team. But I hope to always be a realist, too.
Again, let's just be glad the season is over.
And now we can look forward to the rest of the season for the Chiefs...
