Found April 26, 2012 on Crown Crazed:
Hooray! When I arrived home yesterday afternoon, I was pleasantly greeted with my brand new "The Moose is Loose" t-shirt waiting at my door. I came across this shirt in a Twitpic (on Twitter, of course) last week, and I had to have one! I love the style. It is simple, yet creative... and features a Royals hitter batting over .300. I had to wear it right away, of course. So, I donned the shirt, snapped a Twitpic (follow @CrownCrazed while you're over there) and went on my day. Then, out to the bar to watch the Royals take on the Indians in Cleveland. The Royals were in Cleveland, I didn't go to a bar in Cleveland... Now, I know nothing about fashion and I wear what I want and what I like. Apparently, everyone likes this shirt as well... Five compliments on the evening, ranging from a younger woman to an old man. Nice! The t-shirt transcends age and gender. The shirt, itself, is a basic tee, but a bit softer, not that hard uncomfortable 100% cotton. Fo...

Why Alcides Escobar should bat leadoff

Alcides Escobar should bat leadoff for the Kansas City Royals.  Immediately.  Your response may be, "WHAAAA???!!!!" or "WTF is WRONG with you?!"  Allow   me to expound before you throw me off a cliff.

Kansas City Royals Lose 12th Game in a Row

  Remember before last season when experts were all lauding the job the Kansas City Royals had done compiling the consensus No. 1 farm system in all of baseball? Apparently that doesn’t actually translate into wins on the field. So far in 2012, the Royals have shown themselves to be old-school bad. We’re talking 1890 Pittsburgh Alleghenys, 1899 Cleveland Spiders, 1962 New York...

Royals slow start tough, but it could be worse

Could it be worse? Could anything top this disastrous start to the Royals' 2012 season? Well, possibly. My first year as a beat writer covering the Royals for The Kansas City Star was in 1992, the infamous season the Royals started 1-16. That was truly depressing, and maybe worse than this, considering that Kansas City fans hadn't become accustomed to losing yet. Brian...
