For the 2012 season, the Kansas City Royals used the slogan of “Our Time” to express the hopes of the organization. Unfortunately, that year resulted in a 72-90 record, making it easy to wonder if the Royals time would actually come. As it turns out, that slogan may have just been two years too soon.

This season, virtually everything appears to be breaking the Royals way. Once again, the Royals have had generally excellent health, especially in their pitching staff as only Bueno and Bruce Chen have missed extended periods of time. The offense has heated up as the weather has gotten hotter, leading the Royals to what may now be a patented second half surge. Unlike last season, when a difficult first half left the Royals too far behind the eight ball to really get into the thick of contention, the Royals appear to be on pace to break that 29 year playoff drought.

The Royals have been white hot as of late, winning 16 of their last 19 games and their last six series. They have won at least eight games in a row twice this season, something they have only done three times in franchise history, with the most recent being in 1980. That winning may not be over.

The Kansas City Royals are going to win the American League Central. It is going to be one amazing scene at Kauffman Stadium when playoff baseball comes back to Kansas City.
