Still, they sit at the bottom of the AL Central.

For several years now, the Kansas City Royals have been known for late season heroics once they are mathematically eliminated from postseason play. If they could lobby the Commissioners office to cancel out the months of June, July and August, they'd be one of the strongest clubs in the American League.

I like the Reds dont get me wrong, I just don't love them. They are playing well and guys like B Phillips and Joey Votto, I love em, but when it comes down to it, I don't really care if the Reds do good or bad, I just care of B Phillips and Joey Votto do good or bad.

The Reds didn't get me interested in Baseball the Red Sox did, I poured my alligences and sold my soul to the Red Sox.

By the way Catman, the girlfriend and I are heading down to Branson, Missouri tomorrow. We found a great bed and breakfast off Table Rock Lake. It's been a few years now since we've been back. Have you been in awhile?

We haven't been to Branson in a while, but we get there on occasion. We're planning to get back there sometime next spring. I'd like to experience Branson around Christmastime. I understand it's amazing.

Yep. When the games don't mean much, they play their best baseball.

See you guys in a few. Heading to Gatlinburg, TN tomorrow with my girlfriend for the fifth-annual BMW Tail of the Dragon event. Will be my first extended time off from work (if you can call a four-day weekend that). Looking forward to crisp air, good friends, and no stress from work!

Fairly enjoyable trip. A lot less activity there in October, which made it very easy to get around without all the hassle normally associated with the town. We only made it to one show, but the girlfriend got plenty of shopping done to keep my time occupied.

The Royals finished two games better this year than they did a year ago, but seven games further back in their division. Go figure.

So if they continue at the current rate we can expect the Royals to compete for the Division in 2045
