  1. Of course the Royals lost that one. Are pitching was terrible back then. If it was anywhere as good as our offense was we would have been competing!

  2. i never knew billy butler and mike sweeney were clones?
    but seriously, these are great days for the royals after…well, you know.
    they’re gonna make a few more trades this year. don’t you think?
    after what they traded to get James shields, ya gotta figure they’re gonna go for it even more. cleveland and detroit both seem catchable.
