The Royals lost every game since our last episode. Some by blowout, some by blown save. Shaky offense, shaky bullpen, and not enough starting pitching.
Is there help on the way? Well, things can probably only get better, right? There are some players performing in the minor leagues who could help and even Salvador Perez may be closer to returning than we had figured three weeks ago – or even last week!
Will a couple of bullpen moves and the return of Salvy be enough to take the Royals from dreadful to at least watchable? Are the Dark Days back? Or, to paraphrase Buddy Bell, could it get even worse?
