The Kansas City Royals are Winners Again

On the 27th of October in ’85
Hardly a fan is now alive
Who remembers that famous date and year

royalsWell, that’s not quite true, but you do have to be about 40 to remember the Kansas City Royals playing a significant baseball game in September. With their 3-0 shutout of the Minnesota Twins tonight at Kauffman Stadium, the revamped 2013 Royals pushed their record to 6-3.

It’s early in the season, to be sure. Yet, there is something more than an early season hot streak happening here. There is a young, talented team with veteran leadership and a new demeanor taking the field each day. There is a team showing signs of persuading a doubting fan base and touching some the glory this franchise once new – not in two years, not next year, but right now.

With a roster filled with minor league all-stars and a young bullpen that was one of baseball’s biggest surprises last year, the Royals’ leadership finally bit the bullet and went out and obtained some legitimate major league starters in the off-season. The early polls are in and this writer is projecting victory.

Because I am old enough to remember, I recall the 1984 Royals that sneaked into an unexpected division title with a veteran line up and some young gun arms. A year later that team would go all the way, defeating the St. Louis Cardinals in a thrilling seven-game series and topping off a decade-long run of excellence. Times have been lean since. This year’s team has veteran arms and a young offense ready to emerge into its prime. I’m not sure if this team will be 1984 or 1985, but it is going to be good.

It’s early, but I am ready to make my Royals prediction for this year. Barring significant injuries, this team will go 90-72 and be in the hunt for at least a wildcard. Have faith Royals fans. There are meaningful games coming this September.

Stay inspired!
