Royals roll into series with Red Sox

BOSTON -- There was a time not all that long ago that the weekend leading up to the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline would feature the Kansas City Royals selling off assets and hoping to build for the future.

But, for Kansas City, the 2015 World Series champions, that future has suddenly become now -- which is why the Royals were buyers when they picked up three pitchers from the San Diego Padres in a trade.

"Right now everybody's confident, everybody's comfortable, everybody's seeing the ball well and you just ride it," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said after his team won its eighth straight and completed a three-game sweep in Detroit on Wednesday before moving on to Boston for this three-game weekend series beginning Friday. "You don't think about it. You just go out and play hard."
