Starting pitching carries the Royals

If you’re inclined toward pessimism, be a baseball fan—you’ll almost always have something to complain about. Ask ballplayers how often a team is hitting on all cylinders and they’ll tell you that over the course of a season you’ll get maybe a week, maybe a week and a half of worry-free baseball. Whether it’s the starting pitching, relief pitching, hitting or the defense, there’s almost always some part of a team’s game that’s in a funk. When that happens some other part of a team’s game has to cover for the part that isn’t working.
