Uncustomed Heroes of 2016: Royals
Good year for the AL Central, not so good year for the Royals.
I'll give them credit for trying, but without Zobrist and Cueto, without a healthy core, without most of the pitching staff and without a real definitive squad focus for the year...the Royals couldn't get it done, and wound up in third, missing out on the playoffs...right where they were three years ago.
Alex Gordon had a down season, which...he has from time to time. He'll probably be back in 2017 when the pressure's off.
Coming Tomorrow- The Tigers team that NEARLY cracked the playoffs.
