Mark today, July 20, as the day in 2016 when the Kansas City Royals were realistically, if not mathematically, eliminated from the post season. The Cleveland Indians came to town and beat them in their own house like a rented mule, taking two out of three, and those two weren’t close. It was Grant vs Lee, Iceberg vs Titanic, Ali vs some random math major plucked from the freshman class at MIT. The Royals are now nine games back, and this AAA line-up doesn’t have the chops to overcome it. Stick a fork in ’em. They’re done.
