The Royals are not only the toast of the town, but they are gaining some national attention as well.

Here is a sampling of what has being written about the team recently.

**We start with Neil Greenberg, who writes for the Fancy Stats blog at the Washington Post. On Wednesday, he explains why the Royals could miss the playoffs. There are a whole lot of stats in here, but the gist is this year’s team looks a lot like last year’s.

**However, ESPN’s Stats & Info blog had a piece on how the Royals’ rotation is ruling the AL Central these days.

**This is the San Jose Mercury News’ take on the Royals’ 3-0 win on Wednesday night.

**Rany Jazayerli wrote a piece for the New York Times about SungWoo Lee’s visit to Kansas City and the craziness that has ensued.
