How old is that kid? 10? He just thinks this is how baseball is supposed to go in Kansas City. He doesn’t remember the teams that lost 100 or more games for 4 out of 5 years between 2002 and 2006. He doesn’t remember the period betweet 1995-2002 when the team didn’t finish above .500. He doesn’t remember 2005 when the team finished 43 games out of first place.
He’ll think this is just how it is to be a Royals fan.
Soak it in kid, because there’s a 40-year-old guy out there who was in your spot way back in 1985 who thought the wild times would never end. Soak it all in, little man.
