Ball Played: Finally, an Indians win

Salvador Perez is Still Annoying Lorenzo Cain

There aren’t many people fond of the headhunting Kansas City Royals these days. They’ve morphed from the team that hasn’t won anything in forever to the team with their own version of an NWO video: (All of this because of a Brett Lawrie slide…) However, in the clubhouse they’re still the fun, lovable bunch from last season. Just check out Salvador Perez’s Instagram...

Crazy 8th Pushes Kansas City to 7-0 as they Down the Twins, 12-3

7-0? Yeah, 7-0.   After embarrassing the Angels in a three-game series, they traveled up north to Minnesota to face a Twins team that has only one win on the season.

Salvador Perez's value far from hidden to Royals

Early Thoughts on 2015 Royals

So a sinus attack has me awake in the middle of the night. I get to watch the game from September 30, 2014 – again – in its entirety – for the first time since I watched it on live TV. No, I wasn’t at the K that night. I am sure in 25 years the attendance for that game will be 200,000 – but I won’t be one of them. I attended ALDS 3, ALCS 4, WS 2. What a great post...
