    Pounding the blue kool-aid. We won’t win the division or make the playoffs but this will be a fun ass team this year.

    I keep seeing it tweeted that only 30% of the metro will be able to watch Royals/Sporting games. Un-fucking-believable.

    "Who was the opening day shortstop for the 2021 American League Champion Kansas City Royals?" is going to be a fun trivia question someday.

    Finally caught up to live action. On google fiber the first 1:15 of the broadcast showed the Cardinals game instead of KC. Was that the same for everyone?

    Watched his last AB and it didn’t seem weird at all. Hopefully more of a precautionary/defensive sub.

    610 was talking to Ned and they told him Whitley said Isbel was like a Gordo Jr and Ned said “kind of, but I see him more of a DDJ type, just a gritty warrior type.”

    Has to be a special moment for him. His first game as an owner of a major league team. All those years with his dad in the clubhouse and now he owns a portion of a team. Amazing.

    Still remember being there that first AB, bases loaded, facing Schilling, 2 outs. Fucking nails one to deep left, HR distance, everyone screaming...Foul. Next pitch, strike three.
