Friday Notes

Dizzy yet? This Royals team has gone from 4-7 to 14-12 to 24-28 to 39-32 to 48-50 and now they're working on clawing their way back from their latest downturn. Contrary to popular belief, the chances for the Royals to make the playoffs are not over. I'm a fan of keeping my money, so I wouldn't exactly bet on them to make it, but the chances still exist. What's crazy is just a few weeks ago, they were in the ...

A Final Plea To Keep Calm

What more can be said about the 2014 Royals? This last week saw utter disappointment, a call for heads to roll and yet another tearing-down process for the Kansas City Royals. Now the dogs have been called off…..temporarily. There is no question that a three-game sweep at the hands of the lowly Red Sox, followed by another non-offensive night against the White Sox is inexcusable. Every season has its ups an ...
