Who really thought Kansas City Royals would make it this far?

Who really thought Kansas City Royals would make it this far?
BY JED HUGHES
FOR NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

The 2014 baseball postseason is proving to be one of the most exciting in recent memory. The Kansas City Royals, in their first playoff series since Hall of Famer George Brett was still manning third base, have been formidable and now have set the record for most consecutive victories from the outset of the post-season.

How many people realistically expected to Kansas City to represent the American League in the World Series when the regular season began in April? The Royals, who have one of the lowest payrolls in the major leagues, are doing it with speed, good starting pitching, solid defense, and a spectacular bullpen. They had just one .300 hitter -- Lorenzo Cain, who hit .301 -- during the regular season, and, led by Alex Gordon's 19, hit the fewest home runs of any team in the big leagues. Gordon's 74 RBI also led the team.
