I’ve been obsessed with my hometown Royals since 1969.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost announced Friday afternoon that he decided to move Chris Young to the bullpen—instead of Jeremy Guthrie—to make room for newly acquired ace Johnny Cueto.

In the movie version of the 2014 Royals’ season, which I picture as something like Major League, this is the part of the movie when the slow, sad music starts to play.

It was “Husker” night at Kauffman Stadium on Saturday as the Royals and Giants played the second game of their 3-game series, so it was only fitting when a U of Nebraska alumnus — left fielder Alex Gordon — gave the near-capacity crowd a thrill with a fifth inning bomb.

Going into the last full month of the season, the Royals had some nice momentum and the phrase “.500” was even starting to creep back into some people’s vocabulary. They had just swept the Detroit Tigers and put together their best month of the season. Any momentum was quickly halted with a disappointing doubleheader defeat […]
