Jemile Weeks playing himself into a future role with Red Sox?

Sep 12, 2014; Kansas City, MO, USA; Boston Red Sox base runner Jemile Weeks scores as he rounds third against the Kansas City Royals during the fifth inning at Kauffman Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Peter G. Aiken-USA TODAY Sports The acquisition of Jemile Weeks at the waiver trade deadline on August 31 was an afterthought at best; the swap of Kelly Johnson and Michael Almanzar for Weeks and Minor Leaguer Ivan De Jesus just didn't look to be a significant trade.

A Critical Analysis of the Royals Part 11: What 2014 Should Have Looked Like

It's somewhat silly to be writing about what the Royals should be doing in 2014 to make the playoffs. The fact of the matter is that Ned blew this in Spring Training - which was predictable in 2013 if you watched where this thing was going.

Royals 7, Red Sox 1 Revved-up Royals beat Red Sox, 7-1

Rubby De La Rosa of the Boston Red Sox talks with plate umpire Jim Reynolds after he was charged with a balk that scored Salvador Perez of the Kansas City Royals in the fourth inning. KANSAS CITY - The Red Sox have a large group of young starting pitchers on the cusp of being ready for the major leagues, enough that they were comfortable in trading Felix Doubront, John Lackey, Jon Lester and Jake Peavy in July.

Who will determine the AL Central champ?

Could lefty Chris Sale of the out-of-contention White Sox have a major impact on the Detroit-Kansas City race? The standings on this Friday in September show the Kansas City Royals with a half-game lead over the Detroit Tigers in the American League Central, a lead sliced to that miniscule margin because of the Royals' loss to woeful Boston Thursday night.

Royals Review

Do you plan on getting post-season tickets?

I don't want to tempt fate, but with the Royals playoff odds still at 70%, it would be prudent to at least begin making tentative post-season plans. If you're looking to get tickets on the secondary market, you should also expect to pay a pretty penny.

Royals Rumblings - News for September 12, 2014

But it's not too soon to give Dayton Moore and the Royals credit for making a trade that played out exactly the way they said it would. I'm not talking about wins and losses and playoff berths - which was certainly a significant part of my objection to it - but that the players they were acquiring have performed the way the Royals thought they would.... Maybe the trade won't propel the Royals into the playoffs this year, in which case we'll have to judge its legacy anew.
