I think people don’t give that Royals team enough credit. They finished that season 41-23 (.640), then won the WC game, swept the Angels, swept the Orioles and lost a hard fought World Series in 7 games. Then they turned right around and won 95 games and the World Series the following season. It was a very good team that was coming into its own the last couple of months of 2014. Great outfield defense, great bullpen, great team speed.
