Should left fielder Alex Gordon or the Royals be concerned that his 39-game surge since returning to the top of the lineup includes just one home run in 179 plate appearances?

"I'm trying not to think about it too much," he said. "I'd like to hit a few more homers. I'm capable of that. But I don't want to think about trying to hit homers because I think that will hurt me in other areas."

This might be a case of nit-picking.
