In the words of the urban philosopher Shawn Carter, allow me to re-introduce myself….

Posted: June 20, 2014 in AL Central, MLB

I’ve been gone for a minute, but the spark seems to have returned. So let’s jump right into it.

 

My Kansas City Royals sit atop the AL Central! Who woulda thunk it right?! AND…they reeled off 10 straight Dubs. If anyone but the most homerific of Royals fans says they saw this coming, they are lying! We hoped they would compete but no one was thinking this. Now the expectations ceiling is PLAYOFFS! PLAYOFFS? It’s been 11 years since the Royals were atop the division this late in the year and it’s not that late in the season truth be told. The goes to the larger problem of the disparity between small and large market teams. The Royals can’t afford to overspend or even spend to keep high profile FAs but they have some players right now.

As I told a co-worker, I’ll reserve most of my glee for after the All-Star break.
