We are through four and a half innings of the Royals 2012 season. They have only outscored their opponents in three of those nine half-innings. They are not ready for prime time. However, I am still high on the Royals. I am still high on their talent. I misjudged their chances this season, but they are dynamic and young. They will get better.
The 2012 Royals season over the first 9 9-game stretches, with won-loss record, runs scored average, and runs allowed average.
