The Royals have acquired outfielder Billy Burns from Oakland in exchange for Brett Eibner.

I really don't understand the trade.

Basically the same player but Burns is faster and is a switch hitter. Not much difference though. Both are high level AAA players.

Maybe Burns is part of a bigger trade?

2 games under .500

44 games to go.

10 games out from 1st in the Central.

5 Back from a Wild Card spot.

Do the Royals make the playoffs?

I say they go on a tear and sneak in with a wild card spot and lose in the ALDS. Unfortunately

We've been too streaky to be able to all of a sudden become consistent and start sweeping teams.

We'd probably have to win 36 of those 44 games. That's just not gonna happen.

We won't just give up down the stretch but the playoffs aren't happening this year. Next year if we get healthy and can stay healthy I can see playoffs happening again.

Biggest positive in the second half of the season is how fucking dominant Duffy has been. Good lord he is on fire.

2 games back from a potential wild card. Seattle lost to the Brewers today, Detroit cruised past Boston and cut that deficit down as well. We can still do this.

Royals are 2 back from Seattle. The 2nd wild card team.

Baltimore is the 2nd wildcard team, Seattle is the 3rd. KC is 4 games back as Wallace said.

Burned out from the game today. Waaaay to hot out there apparently. Reading owns, plus its really difficult keeping up with all these games with who we need ro win and lose. Watching Cleveland, Seattle and Houston. Forgot about Baltimore.

It's easy to mistake shit like that, especially when the top two teams are in the same division. Thankfully most places just have wildcard standings you can view nowadays

I browse espn, really getting tired of it honestly. Stupid ads that if you skip, you get no sound on the featured video. Some really good series coming up though. Ones we need to steal in order to have a fighting chance. Boston for a few, 2 series with Detroit and Cleveland. Lots of division games. Still holding out for that glimmer of hope.

Royals are going to have to win 20-22 of the remaining games to have a shot at the playoffs. I think we can do it but it won't be easy.

We have some good series coming up. 2 with Detroit and 2 with Cleveland. I know that isnt enough, but maybe just maybe we can snag a WC spot if Baltimore and Toronto completely shit the bed. Clevelands in a free fall. Im from there, so I expect it.

Jesus. Came across pictures of the accident on the CBS Sports Facebook comments. Poor kid was still hanging out of the roof of his overturned Jeep.

No seatbelt in a rollover accident. Not good. RIP Ace...
