Changes to Sundays at the K.
Originally, I had intended for Sundays at the K to be a game by game recap and quick highlight of each weeks worth of games. If you do not already have PTSD from the Royals this year, and want to go back to that format, just let me know in the comments and we will give you a number.
That being said, after talking with the boss this week, and the entire world knowing exactly how bad the Royals bullpen is, we decided to scrap the idea of making people re-read the same scenario for every game. Royals take a lead in innings 1-6ish, bullpen comes in to blow it Every. Single. Time. Game over Royals lose. So this week, we are going to lighten it up, and let you scroll through the weeks worth of hilarious Royals related tweets. Laughing helps people cope with bad situations. So here are some laughs.
Probably the only thing keeping Ned Yost and GMDM’s jobs at this point is Whit Merrifield breaking George Brett’s 30 game hit streak from 1980. If they trade Whit at the deadline, and GMDM still has a job, airplanes with banners need to be summoned to the K. Please. Regardless, good job to Whit, and it was fun watching him break it on a squeeze bunt.

Anyone remember what Booth said after he jumped on the stage?
Open Thread for today
Royals conclude their series with the Cleveland Indians today at 1:15 Central Time. Use this post as your rally point for today’s game. The team has rebounded nicely from their 10 game losing streak to take the first two games from the Indians.
