Jack Harry says the Royals are living on the edge. Jack, the Royals are doing what they can with what they got. It is also the nature of baseball in September when superior teams are absent. Nobody is running away with their division. It is what happens to flawed teams.
You go with your strengths and try to hide your weaknesses. Baseball being a long season makes it very hard to hide your weaknesses. The crappy hitting third baseman always seems to come up in key situations and way more often than not does NOT deliver. The nature of baseball.
Beating crappy teams like the Rangers is important. Being a so-so team like the Yankees is very important. Need to take 2 out of 3 in New York and hopefully the same in Detroit.
