Royals owner says he 'out of patience'

Despite the Royals one-game road winning streak, Royals owner David Glass is unhappy about his team's 6-20 start.

Or maybe Glass is patient to a fault.

"I'm very patient," he said, "but at the same time, I pretty much understand what it takes to play here. I think we're obviously better than we're playing, but we've got a ways to go yet.

"It doesn't happen overnight, but gosh dang it, when you look at this team, there are reasons why we're losing the way we are.

"We don't want to be impatient, but we can't get into a position where we're too patient. That just doesn't work. I've been through this before — and I know it doesn't work."

Joe Posnanski of the Kansas City Star is at the end of his rope.

Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports follows up on the story of the disgruntled Royals fan who auctioned off his loyalty.

I love the Posnanski column.

I do too, but this struck too close to home: "...they're old. Hitters two through six average 35 years of age. That's pure hopelessness."

Er, what other team in baseball (with blue on white uniform colors) does that remind me of?

Is this the organization filled with people with the same last name? And, I'm not talking about the Dodgers.
