Entering Wednesday night's game the Royals had tied a franchise worst with 42 runs given up over the last three games.
Scott Podsednik expressed his frustration at that after another loss, this time 6-4 to the Twins on Wednesday afternoon.
Too little, too late. We put up a charger there and showed a little bit of life late but just wasn't able to get it done again. Something has to give. We have to come out tomorrow with some intensity and start winning ball games. Like I said yesterday, it's unacceptable with the results we're getting.
Podsednik said several weeks ago that he would like to remain a Royal. Hours after these words, he was traded to the Dodgers.
It's easy to get sucked into losing. I don't want to say we're accepting it but when a couple bad things go it's almost as if you feel here we go again and that's what we're trying to change around here but that hasn't been the case as of late. Ned comes in here, and he's been a great motivator sending the right message and doing all the right things, but it's up to us to apply that on the field.
