High & Low of Indians @ Royals 9/25-9/27: The Final Sprint is Upon Us
It just goes to show you that it is highly important to finish strong and to play your best baseball towards the end. Look at the Royals. I know one of those days was a celebration hangover, but even then, this Royals team? If I were the Indians and had the opportunity to play in the postseason, give me the Royals in the ALDS. I want no piece of Toronto, but the Royals? They're vulnerable.
Now, even though the Indians are playing the best most consistent baseball of their season, it probably won't be enough. If all this team could do is play a little more consistency earlier in the year, they'd be money. That isn't the case though and that sucks, because watching this team play the past few weeks has been a joy. I said it on Twitter, but perhaps the most frustrating part of this season has how it has felt like the season had ended time after time again, yet, it actually hasn't.
Perhaps it shouldn't be frustrating. Perhaps it should be more of a happier note that this team has fought hard and is fighting hard until the very end and doing everything humanly possible to remain in the race.
This is an usually long intro for the High & Low, but it's one of the last few I'll have the chance to do for the year in regards to games. I also missed one last week, so consider this the double intro. The Indians won this series. Yeah, lost that game on Sunday, but, two outta three.
And a big seven (maybe eight!) game home stand is upon us. I'll be present Saturday, so do this team a favor. If you have the means, go see one more game. Show them that you're still here with them as they fight hard to the very end. And now, the highs and lows of the Indians series against the AL Central Division Champion Kansas City Royals.
