Looking at who has the Upper Hand in battle between east and west

When it comes to baseball supremacy, Missouri may be the best state in the Union (this year).  So with the I-70 series upon us, I thought I would do a little East Side vs. West Side analysis.  In order to do so, I will try my hardest to take my bias out of the mix, as well as the sense of entitlement that comes with all things St. Louis.  So here is the closest thing to a scientific...

I-70 Series Preview: Royals vs. St. Louis Cardinals, May 22-24

The last time the Kansas City Royals and St. Louis Cardinals faced off in a series while both teams were in first place was back in late June of 2003. Of course, much of that is due to the Royals failures as an organization, but either way, this series isn’t typically quite so important in […]
