The realists have this figured out.

The realists have this figured out. 


It just occurred to me that the negatrons have this
all figured out. If the royals don't make the playoffs, they
get to tell us all they told us so. If we make the playoffs and
lose the wildcard game. They will tell us so what, we didn't
beat anybody. If we win the wildcard and lose in the next round,
we will hear that we didn't beat anybody. No big deal. If we get
to the league championship. They will yell and scream with the
rest of us.

They can't lose. It's brilliant.

Edit. Poor word choice. Realists is much better.

All I'm saying is they get to tell us "I told you so."
All the way up to, "way to go guys!" Brilliant!

Every fan base has a Randy Quaid from Major League trolling around.  People have every right to be upset and negative about a franchise that has not been to the playoffs in nearly 30 years.

The Royals aren't going to the playoffs. The Angels, A's and Tigers are going to be too strong over the remaining course of the season. The Royals might have had a shot before the trade deadline happened and David Price arrived in Detroit and Jon Lester in Oakland. There might be a chance they make it close with the Angels as the top obstacle from that wildcard spot, but the lead is so big and their extremely hot at the moment. The Angels would have the best record in baseball if they hadn't have blown all the end of game chances that they had without a reliable bullpen. Well, now they have a strong bullpen and fixed their weakness. Meanwhile, the Royals continue to play people like Mike Moustakas that shouldn't even be on a major league roster. And the best hitter, whom you normally bat #3, the Royals believe is Eric Hosmer. Who is nothing more than a slap-hitting sure-handed 1B. Basically, it's a joke that a team would think he's their best hitter or one of.

For me, I just need to see them actually holding one of the WC spots for a period of time before I get too excited. Outside of 1 day with the division lead, it's been the same as last year, on the outside looking in.

Ha! They were in first place for 3 days! 3! They were also tied for 1st for two days early in the year. So not only are you a negatron, you are also a Wrongatron.

Let that sink in for a minute, Negatron Wrongatron.

Today is August 4th. As of today are the royals
contending for a playoff spot?

I'm sorry. Negatrons was a poor word choice. I should
Have used "realist".

So does this mean the Royals are not contending for a WC?

I think everyone's waaaay too wrapped up in the sunshiners/doomsdayers fight.

A pox on both your houses.




Thanks, Dave.

I'm actually not trying to spark an argument. It just
suddenly hit me how brilliant it is to be a realist. It's
a no lose position. If the royals lose, the realists still
win. If the royals win, they win as well.

Why "realist?" You obviously dispute their version of reality unless you've changed your mind.

Because they don't view themselves as negative.
They seem to think that their the ones "keeping it
real". So realist is probably the better term.

It's an off day. So like the game day threads. Just throw
something at the wall and see if it sticks.
