A twist on a familiar season. Happy hunting.
Well, the Kansas City Royals officially dashed the Minnesota Twins’ dreams for a postseason wild card berth. Hopefully an improved bullpen and more rookie stand-outs like Sano and Rosario will help the Twins go further next year.
The Series returned to Kansas City tonight – in more ways than one. After three hours and twenty-one minutes of baseball, the Royals shut out San Francisco with ten unanswered runs. Admittedly I felt the Royals would be the underdogs in this contest, but with a fired up hometown crowd, Game 7 will prove to […]
Royals Come Alive
If there were any doubts about whether or not Kansas City belonged in the World Series, Game Two was the litmus test. The Royals erupted last night in a 7-2 victory over San Francisco. The score was stalled at 2-2 going into the bottom of the sixth when a string of KC hits by Butler […]
Kansas City hosted the San Francisco Giants in game one of the 2014 World Series last night. It didn’t take long for the Giants to dominate with an early 3-0 lead thanks to a deep center two-run dinger by Hunter Pence. The Royals struggled to take control defensively digging four arms deep into their bullpen. Seeing extra […]
King of Diamonds
The Kansas City Royals swept the Los Angeles Angels last night and went on to be crowned the champions of the ALDS. Moose and Hosmer’s homers, Gordon’s triple, Shields’ pitching and some incredible fielding by Lorenzo Cain easily trumped the Angels. On to the ALCS to meet the Orioles!
King for a Day
Right now I can’t think of another team that deserves to be in the postseason more than the Kansas City Royals. During Tuesday night’s wild card game, I tuned in at the end of six innings to see them trailing Oakland by four runs. I felt they had blown their chance and wrote them off before going to bed. The […]
October means fall and postseason baseball. Although New York never had a shot at the pennant this season, one of their greatest players retired this week after twenty years as a Yankee. I don’t watch a lot of TV, but I did happen to catch his last home game at bat and all I can say is ‘poetic’. I never […]
I guess this means Spring has officially sprung. Still wishing it felt like it.
Krolls: ‘Get up and run’
Today I joined hundreds of runners who laced up and hit the trail for the annual Kroll’s Diner Bismarck Marathon. I can’t say that I have a lot of experience as a competitive runner, but truly enjoy the challenge, discipline and preparation required to do a road race. Thanks to the advice and encouragement from […]
