This week on the Vault we took a look at some of the key players on this Royals team. We discussed the breakout seasons of Eric Hosmer and Lorenzo Cain, as well as talked about the performances of Danny Duffy and Yordano Ventura lately.

Then we discussed other AL contenders, taking a look at which teams might be the toughest matchups in October and compared a few records – in one-run games, at home, on the road, etc. – to make our choice.

kcBaseballVaultBanner-1024x409

Well, the Royals found themselves in the middle of the diamond in a scrum again, this time trading words with Toronto over the weekend.

As a result, the Royals are wearing the “bad boy” tag again, after a couple months of no such incidents. Jeff and Mike talked about the fallout from that series and the perception – again – that the Royals are troublemakers.

Then we talked about the trading deadline and the teams that improved and what it means for the rest of the AL and the Royals, plus the matchups that might best benefit the Royals.
