They’re still at IT! We’re talking about the Kansas City Royals here! Let’s talk about taking the postseason by storm, its a tornado of an entrance and presence by these guys.
With 2 games to win and 5 chances to do so to print tickets for a World Series against either the even Cardinals or Giants, they’re certainly in the driver’s seat, practically driving a Sherman tank.
They can certainly fit all the egos inside the Army transport, because these guys are loose, having fun, hitting well, and for power. If the Orange Birds don’t win one, they will be long forgotten. I think, I can remember the Cubs and KC going at it during Arizona’s Cactus League spring training in ’09. The only guys hanging around since then are Alex Gordon and on the svelte side, Billy Butler, not quite at John Kruk-size.
Will they make it to the World Series? Who knows, though likely. Will they go undefeated? Unlikely. Will they run the table? Heavens no. But they have been fun, refreshing, and not everyone has the Sharia law, terrorist beard thankfully. They have been hard to not watch, really, especially at the end of the game.
Here’s to hoping they do themselves, their team, city, friends and family proud, they’ve already been incredibly respectable, thus far, which really should be credited either way, as if they’ve gone the whole way. Here’s to especially, definitely hoping they offer a good showing for a very young team if they make the Series. Maybe, they’ll even hit a bunch more home runs, which they’re not supposed to do, since they hit so few during the regular season (the lowest totals of HRs in the league.)
It would certainly be freaky to see the Royals-Cardinals in the World Series. Partly because they had something of a controversial play in their Game 6, 1985. Almost 30 years, that’s wild, incredible, amazing to consider, for sure all 3.
That will bring out a Baseball Reunion for sure, maybe some bad feelings. Though, I think, the Cardinals had won the year before and probably 4 World Series since then. (Actually they’d won in ’82 and waited 26 years themselves to bring home the metal again.)
So, this could be the big bitter baseball pill to swallow. Would love to see it, so would baseball.
Here’s hoping for the Battle of Mizzou, Part 2. Cardinals and Royals to get it on before the cameras and bright lights of the World.
Can I say it?
Yeah, Bring It On, Redbirds and Crowns!
