Royals Outfielder Jarrod Dyson Says Orioles Know That They're Done

Kansas City Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson didn't mince words after the Royals took a 2-0 series lead with a 6-4 road win over the Baltimore Orioles on Saturday.

When asked if he thought the series would return to Camden Yards for a sixth game, Dyson was straight to the point. "No sir, I don't," Dyson said, via Jerry Crasnick of, "and I don't think [the Orioles] think that either."

Dyson was pressed to elaborate on Sunday at Kauffman Stadium, and elaborate he sure did.

"I'll just tell you this, man: If we win Game 3, it's going to be hard for them to sit there and look themselves in the mirror and say, 'We can win the next four,' " Dyson said. "That's tough to do, man. Everything must click. I'm just being honest".

"If we take Game 3, I guarantee there are going to be multiple people in that clubhouse over there saying, 'Man, there's no way we're going to beat these guys four games in a row.' It can be done, but everybody ain't gonna be on the same page, I don't think. There are going to be some people ready to go home. There are going to be some people not cheering in the dugout -- just like if it was vice versa on this side. It might be the same way."

Orioles outfielder Nelson Cruz, when asked about Dyson's initial comments, reaffirmed Baltimore's belief in themselves.

"I believe that we're coming back [to Baltimore]," outfielder Nelson Cruz told reporters. "What's important is what we believe here. It doesn't matter what people think outside these doors. That's my only answer."

Stay tuned. It's going to get fun in Kansas City.
