The World Series Show

kcBaseballVaultBanner-1024x409

There’s not a lot of analysis in this one, so if you like the numbers and the breakdowns week to week, this isn’t the one for you.

What we did, though, was reflect on the journey of following the World Series Champion Kansas City Royals. In 2015. Over the course of our fandom. All of it.

We brought on Troy Olsen, who’s been along for the ride from afar, and shared stories of how we’ve come to appreciate this team and their story.

The Royals are World Series Champions.
Really.

Thank you for listening.

Royals/Mets World Series Preview Episode with guest Gary Mack From Mets Musings

kcBaseballVaultBanner-1024x409

The Royals had their backs against the wall in Houston, came back, and won the ALDS. They faced a juggernaut. A powerhouse. A wrecking ball of an offense, but held on to beat Toronto in the ALCS.

And as a result, they won their fourth American League pennant and second in as many years.

What a world.

The Royals go on to face the Mets in the World Series, so we talked with Gary Mack from MetsMusings.com to get some insight on the Mets and to share our Royals thoughts with him and his listeners.

This is going to be a series of matchups: fastball throwers vs. fastball hitters. A powerful Mets team against a scrappy Royals team.

We also had to talk about the makeup of the Royals playoff roster and of course had to talk about the anxiety that we ran into during the Blue Jays series up until a remarkable Lorenzo Cain run, and Wade Davis’s unlikely return from rain delay.

It was a fun show and we’re hoping our next episode is celebrating a Royals World Championship.

Triple Play Podcast – Episode 37

The World Series is here and our team is in it! We give a full World Series preview, focusing especially on the matchups between James Shields and Madison Bumgarner and Jeremy Guthrie against Ryan Vogelsong. The series is evenly matched and could easily reach seven games. The Royals have a weapons off the bench, but the Giants have a solid starting 9. The Royals have the edge in pitching despite a solid Giants bullpen. It’s gonna be tight.

We don’t just focus on the World Series because Andrew Friedman was poached from Tampa Bay by the Dodgers. It’s a big move for the Dodgers that could help them get out from under some of their heavier contractual obligations. It won’t happen this year, but it is a step in the right direction.
