All is not lost for the Kansas City Royals despite the team's current losing streak and inability to win a single game of 10 during their recent homestand. Listening to manager Ned Yost after last night's 1-0 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays, it's clear that the veteran manager has seen adversity on the diamond before and that some growing paints were expected. Thus, the Royals manager kept his head up in post-game comments.
"They are convinced that they are the group to turn that around. They won't ever stop doubting that, but there are certain things you have to go through before you can get into that position," Yost said. "No team is going bring up a group of young, talented players and go from start to finish without a struggle."
Yost also cautioned that he is on the lookout for anyone who is apathetic about the team's current plight.
"That will not be tolerated, no matter who you are in that locker room," Yost said. "As you long as you continue to fight and play hard every pitch of the game, we'll get through this. But as long as guys are getting comfortable and taking pitches off, that's when you'll find your butt on the bench or down in Triple-A. And we've got a lot of guys that have options."
The Royals hope to turn things around tomorrow night at Cleveland.
