I'm sure there will be pictures involved.  Mrs. Schreds is not going to approve.   I fell that God is on mine and LoCain's side though.

Anyone gonna be at the K this weekend to see LoCain sign his one day contract and retire a Royal?
I would love to.  LoCain was my favorite player on those Royals teams of the mid teens.  Little Schred's first communion threw a wrench in those plans though.
I know nothing about baseball but the word I would use to describe his play during the 2014-15 postseason runs would be electrifying.

i didn't check on the royals for like three weeks, and apparently those fuckers somehow got worse.

@Cartierfor3

Do we have enough sample size in 2023 to say Nick Pratto has figured it out?   His batting numbers have been way better than I expected.  I don’t think Witt Jr, Vinnie, and Pratto is enough to build a team around but it’s encouraging.

as many of you know, i like to break the season down into smaller increments, commonly known as pods, to better understand the trajectory of a season.  as the royals turn the corner on the first 72 games, let's take a look at the numbers, aka podnalysis, aka mocat math, to see how they're doing.

we'll move from longer pods to shorter pods:

18 game pods: 0-4
12 game pods: 0-6
9 game pods:  0-8
6 game pods:  0-11-1
3 game pods:  4-20
1 game pods:  19-53

as you can see, the royals have struggled in longer pods, but keep improving in pod win% as the pods get shorter.  as we move into the rest of the season, it appears that the royals' best chance for success will be to play more shorter pods and to try to avoid getting caught in longer pods.

1 game pods from here on out imo. We could win like 25% of those pods if we play out best baseball.

great work sys, always love a good pod breakdown.

if you break the season down into 72-game pods, the royals are 0-1, which is not really that big of a hole to dig out of. a solid outing in the next 72-game pod and they could easily be at .500

If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

it's prolly still like 50:50 they lose, but this inning has been incredibly funny and incredibly fun.

It’s the dog days of summer and the royals are fresh from just sandbagging all season long until this point. We are well positioned imo

Wins against the Mets only count for half at this point.

Figure we only need to win about 48 out of the last 53 games to steal the division.
