Your welcome - I figured a reverse jinx would do the trick.

Wasn't is 30 years between World Series appearances for the Royals? It's 29 years, I believe, for the Dodgers.

That's right, 29. Correct?

It was also 29 years between any postseason appearance at all for the Royals, so the Dodgers have had it a little better on that front

Hosmer to the Padres. We get another draft pick. Probably for the best.

The Royals are just pathetic. I could see Yost just stepping down midway thru the season. Maybe they should try to trade Moustakas for a prospect. If the Royals drop there next 4 to the White Sox, the White Sox will have 7 wins in Kauffman since the start of the Regular Season. The White Sox home win total of 7 could actually last all the way until the end of May since the Royals are currently 1-10 at home.

Meh, planned rebuilding. They will likely get better over the season and hopefully a few players will have good seasons so we can get something for them closer to the trade deadline.

5 and 5 in the last 10 games. Remarkably, that's the best in the AL Central over the last 10. Out of last place too. The central is bad enough that it almost gives one hope a subpar Royal's team could find a way to win the division.

I don’t think any city in our region is big enough to support their own standalone MLB team.

Within our metro, I think soccer and maybe baseball are the only two that should be in downtown KC.

Why are we naming random cities here? Did I miss an announcement that the prospective local owner wants to move the team to effing Springfield?

He doesn't work with the Indians. He's a minority owner. And he'll divest himself if the Royals deal goes through.

He grew up here. The guy is a KC resident who has been a fan of the team since the 70's. He's on the Kauffman Found. Board of Directors. His children and family live here.

Tell me again why he's moving the team to Columbus?

Seems unlikely Royals would move but if they did my bet would be Portland over others mentioned.

Over Springfield? GTFO....

I would say Portland and Vegas would be top two for MLB.
