    After four days without baseball, the World Series finally kicks off. Wait, not, it begins. “Kicks off” is a football term and dumb football is the whole reason we had to wait four days for the World Series to start.

    Wanna buy the Royals’ recyclables?

    Someone asked Sergio Romo what country he’s from at media day today. Last I checked, California was still part of the United States.

    Don Denkinger call

    This former Royals is a big part of why the current Royals are where they are.

  12. No one knows where Jose Fernandez is

    The second baseman, that is, not the Marlins pitcher.

  13. Apparently, the Royals “just know how to win”

    Frank White is possibly the Royals most popular player in franchise history. But he and the team have not been on speaking terms for several years. And not even an A.L. Pennant has changed that.
