Turning Back Time: Yankees Sweep Royals

Things like this aren't supposed to happen anymore. At least, if you believe the Kansas City Royals they aren't.  The Royals started this season with a chip on their shoulder, angry about not being picked by the prognosticators to repeat their outstanding 2014 season.
