The Kansas City Royals come to town tonight, and the Yankees have many reasons to be confident: owners of the best record in baseball, a rotation that measures among the best in baseball despite recent troubles, a lineup of hitters who finally seem to be heating up.
But the Royals have many ways to be spoilers. While they rank next to last among AL teams at scoring runs, they have several quality hitters. Let a couple ABs get away, and an inning can snowball.
Bruce Chen was a Yankee killer for the Orioles for several seasons. He can be wild, but he can be tough to hit.
Nothing is for certain, and there are no guarantees. Focus, grind, win.
