Royals know how to win....

...but do they know how to lose? Up to now, it's been peaches and cream for our young heroes, but can they take a bloody nose?

 

You don't know how a young team will respond to some adversity. Obviously, we need to win this game to give us a good chance of survival, but it would also be good to see if these guys can take a punch.

The notion of knowing how to win and knowing how to lose is, well, silly. It's a baseball game, you win by scoring more runs than your opponent. They did that last night because of our offensive ineptitude, a couple of nice catches, an incredibly lucky catch (that Aoki one where he ran in a circle about 400 times before finally deciding he should catch it) and a stupid decision to bring Salas in. We win tonight by not doing that stupid shit and actually having a couple of our hitters contribute this time.

So you don't believe in resilience? Some players/some teams/some people give up quicker than others. That's life.

 

In a short series, it's possible that a young team with little playoff experience may crack under the strain.
