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.

This week we take a long look at the vast number of injuries and how they might affect the playoff race. We also talk about the horrendous Aroldis Chapman head injury scare.
The Royals finally decided what to do with struggling pitcher Danny Duffy, and then undecided and then decided again.
