Another night. Another Royals miracle.

    Just savor the moment, while it lasts and hope it lasts for ten more victories. (Ten more, yikes?)

    A quibble on the column–you didn’t write a word about Holland’s “side trip” between the two games. Glad he made before he was needed. More glad all is well with wife and son.

    After watching Don Mattingly last night, I don’t want to hear any more criticism of Ned Yost.

    • Mattingly is not a good manager. His job apparently is to keep the rest of the team from kicking Puig’s ass.

      • Michael Green says:

        Bellweather, first, there’s no evidence of the rest of the team feeling that way; yes, there was a confrontation between Puig and Kemp in the dugout one night. I did think perhaps Mattingly was, like most managers, better at keeping the team ready to play than at game strategy. But his handling of Kershaw and the 7th inning Friday night showed that instead of being a wash–poor game strategy made up for by other intangibles–he cannot be allowed to run a game, period.

        • I was being flippant about Puig, especially since I know Puig drives Mattingly more crazy than anyone. My real point was the same as yours. Mattingly is a terrible game manager.

      • Damn, that was a good one!

    You Royals fans are laughing now, but please realize this: you have lost the right to complain about -anything- for another twenty years.

    Is there anyway that you could either post the articles here, or get them to stop with the Autoplay? It’s such an annoyance. For any other writer, I probably would stop reading over it.

    Your KC posts seem so detached from the reality of what’s going on here any more. You used to nail it but I guess those days are long gone.

    Loved KtP post btw.

  6. Dean says:

    Congratulations, Joe. I’ve been checking routinely to hear your thoughts, but I suppose your minds are too busy celebrating to suffer any drudgery of describing the ineffable.

    Best of luck in the next series!

      Or perhaps he’s trying to salvage his Tom Watson loveathon book after it came out that TW was a total d–k in Scotland two weeks ago. Kind of like the JoePa events swallowed his last effort.

  7. Perry T says:

    When the Royals *most* need to be written about, Joe has disappeared from the face of the earth.

    There’s been nothing at all about the last two games of the ALDS. And nothing of substance on the first game of the ALDS.

  8. Dan Shea says:

    Pretty sure Joe spontaneously combusted when Hosmer homered in the 11th.

  9. Luke says:

    I’m sure he’s very busy, but I hope he writes more. In some ways, I wasn’t just waiting all those years for the Royals to make the playoffs. I was also waiting to hear Joe write about it.
