This week we only touch on a few national stories before moving to the Royals. Chris Davis was suspended for 25 games for using Adderall. This was after he bashed players during the steroid era of baseball as illegitimate home run leaders.
We also talk about the apparently invincible Angels, whose offense has been unbelievably tough to stifle. They had a 10 game winning streak in which they scored about 10 runs a game.
The Royals have been playing terrible baseball lately, but they’ve been holding onto a tenuous place in a tight playoff race due mainly to great pitching.
Billy Butler has been benched due to limited production and you can just about write his Royals obituary despite being one of the top ten hitters ever to wear a Kansas City uniform.
