Royals Winning? Another '85?

Royals are top of the AL and we're well into May now. A lot of us are wondering how long this will last. I think it was back in '03 when KC got off to a really good start and then slowly wound up back where they have been for the last 20 years or so, at the bottom. However, this season seems different. We've got some decent hitters and some great defense. There are a couple other teams looking good in the AL but I'm just going to point out that this could potentially be another Cards/Royals matchup in the Series. Just throwing it out there.

I think KC has become accustomed to a loosing season and for the most part okay with it. It's fun to get the family or friends out to a ball game and sit back to watch the fountains. But this year we've got a new Kauffman stadium with some good pitching. It's a little different going to a game these days. It kind of feels like the pressure is on the fans a little bit. Kind of fun.

The new stadium comes with the new prices. The "K" is very cheap for the MLB still, but I just got so used to it that as prices creep up it just creeps me out. We paid $16 for some upper level and then worked our way around the stadium between beers. Parking was around $8. So not too bad, but the beer, wheeew! Different prices for different spots around the stadium. When we snuck up on the Party Deck it was $7.50 for a Miller Lite. Boulevard was $7 a pour. I had a couple pre-game drinks and still emptied my wallet at the stadium. Oh well, I suppose the winning and the new stadium makes up for my cheap ways.

I just wanted to point out that the Royals have lost 5 in a row after you went on about how awesome they are. If they finish 4th or 5th in the division again, Royals Nation should come after you with pitchforks.

That's a 6 game loosing streak. Sounding like the ol' Royals that I know so well. Maybe if I talk smack on them they'll pull off a win. You guys suck like every year. You're probably going to blow another game tonight. There maybe that will work.
