Its a Shame (Royals)

I know none of us care anymore about the Royals, especially with the Chiefs at 3-0 but this has bothered me for a while so I thought I would put it out there. I go to 10-15 Royals games a year and around half of the Chiefs game, love and support both best i can.

What gets me about the Royals is that Kansas City supports teams much better than half of the cities that have MLB, but we HAVE TO HAVE SOMETHING to root for. I mean we have been so bad for so long that its almost an enigma that we haven't have one year that we have won our division in the last 15 plus years.

Here is the real beef, look at teams like Tampa Bay Devil Rays, Florida Marlines, Oakland A's, Toronto Blue jays, Detroit, Cleveland, Milwaukee, San Diego etc. All teams that we would support so much better if we just had something. I mean besides Pittsburg, we have absolutely been the bottom feeder in MLB. I mean imagine if we had Tampa's Team here, it would be crazy, we would sell twice the tickets that Tampa does.

ahhhh, anyway just thoughts...

The next few years seems promising.

But I said that 3 years ago.

I care about the Royals. I follow the entire system on a daily basis.

I agree with you wrt crowd sizes. If the Rays team were in KC instead of Tampa Bay then the crowds would be hella' big.

I stopped following the royals since the football season started. I did go to the game last night and watched a badass 10-8 win, and went in the HOF and watched the video of the royals history. Gave me chills, i really would love to see a winner in my adult life. They were killing tonight too, Kila torching it with 2 HR's and 4 rbis as of an hour ago

KC would support a solid Royals team that was winning like the twins

Until the Glass family starts running the team like they care, KC will be nothing more than a Minor League team being a doormat for the AL and the laughingstock of MLB

They have made improvements, and have given DM control...the minors are tops in baseball, things are way better than they have been the past 20 years. It takes time to make up for all that damage. That said, it needs to start in 2011

I really thought they'd be close to .500 this year, (especially when they fired Hillman).
Very disappointing year.

Could you imagine the Outfield we would have if we didn't trade Jose Batista to the Blue Jays? That is 50 home runs there, Beltran in Center, and Manny Rameriez in right field in his prime

With the money that Glass has put into the minors, one could argue that he does care. At least a little bit. He trusts his GM and his GM has created the best farm system in all of baseball. That GM still appears to be in over his head with his responsibilities at the major league level, but that's a different matter.

The Royals should be contending for the division in 2013 and contending for the World Series in the years afterward.

I know what you're saying...as a Braves fan, it kills me to see hardly anyone show up at their home games, esp. right in the middle of a playoff race.

I would kill to be able to go to Braves games so when I see those that are capable not supporting the team it drives me nuts.

Two-part solution to silencing all skeptics:

1. Several of these promising prospects need to develop into legit players at the ML level. Stars? Dare we dream?
2. These players, or the majority of them, must be re-signed. Will we take MN's lead and substantially increase payroll as needed?

Then nothing happened.

Oh, George Brett got 3000 hits and went to the Hall of Fame, so that was cool.


(seriously, I've seen the video)

LOL basically....the history part was cool, and you're right a HUGE gap after Georges 3000 hits....this team needs to come back. I was telling my girl how the Yankees vs Royals was a big thing in the late 70's and 80's, now it doesn't mean shit
