You knew this was coming right?
As The Star’s Sam Mellinger pointed out more than once, the seven-win July proved too much for the Royals to overcome. But, they stayed in contention until the final week of the season, and fans weren’t upset when the Royals were officially eliminated from postseason contention on Wednesday.
There was little or no complaining about what the team or management or Ned Yost did wrong in their eyes.
In fact, the fans were full of pride and happy for the playoff success in 2014 and 2015. Many took to social media to share their love of the Royals. In essence, the fans gave the Royals a standing ovation.
