Winning Time with Ned Yost

The Royals manager has shown this year that winning for the Royals is getting the lead after six innings and then turning the ball over to the PENitentiary in Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland. Shortening the game is the goal but Yost continues to construct the lineup like the team needs to be able to be flexible in the late innings.

Some have argued the point that the suspended game set to be completed on September 22 is most likely a loss and that we should account for that when looking at the standings. To that I simply say that we shouldn't account for that loss just yet. ...
