On Comebacks and Previewing ALDS Game 5


After another historic comeback win by the Royals in the postseason, the ALDS goes to a deciding Game 5.

It comes down to a Johnny Cueto start.

But first, we talked about the Game 4 comeback and the approach that saved the Royals season.

Then we looked at Game 5, wondering if the big comeback can fuel the Royals to another win and another big run like last season. We asked if Dallas Keuchel would pull a Madison Bumgarner, if Eric Hosmer has turned it back on, and if the Royals can pull it off.

Kansas City Baseball Vault: Impromptu Parking Lot Reaction to Sweeping the Angels


Following the Royals 8-3 win and three game sweep of the Angels, Troy and Mike recorded a very impromptu show from the parking lot at Kauffman Stadium, discussing the game itself, the playoff run so far, and the big plays and contributors to this point in the postseason.

The show also featured cameos by one of the very few Angels fans at the K, Troy’s friend Nick, as well as Superfan Chris.

Triple Play Podcast – Episode 35

This week, we dispense with the other news and focus on the Royals.

We recount the miraculous wild card game and talk and how much it meant to us as fans.

Eric Hosmer has been red hot, but more importantly, he looks like he knows what he is doing.

Mike Moustakas turned in his own heroic post-season performance, belting the go-ahead run (and eventual winning run) in game one of the ALDS. He also showed winning humility by bunting his way past the shift in game two.

The pitching staff has looked excellent and we touch on Jason Vargas’s and Yordano Ventura’s performances.
