Wade Davis Deserves Better Than Some Footnote

On August 24, 2013, the most popular movie at the box office was Iron Man 3. The troublesome pop song Blurred Lines was all over our radios. The Boston Red Sox had the best record in the American League, and the Atlanta Professional Baseball Club led the National League. Were we ever so young? Also on that date, Wade Davis had a start against the Washington Nationals. He ended up...

Joey Bats and the Jays the latest to be alienated by Royals

The Kansas City Royals continue to be a mogwai fed after midnight — previously cute and cuddly, but now a gremlin that voraciously terrorizes everything in its path. The Royals were involved in their umpteenth bench-clearing incident this season on Sunday in Toronto, although this time the far more interesting action took place after the game. The escalator on Sunday was when...

Royals Win Back-And-Forth Affair Against Toronto

Part of that is true. Ventura did...

Johnny Cueto gets no decision in first start for Royals

The Royals started hot scoring...

The Royals can’t stop quoting Fetty *** in their interviews

Apparently the Kansas City Royals are done with the bad guy attitude they were exuding at the beginning of the season. And they have replaced that surly demeanor with something light, fun and down-right silly.

WOW! Defense shines as Royals win 2-1
