These O’s Ain’t Royal: Kansas City is World Series Bound For the First Time in 29 YearsFollow @RoyalsBlue_com
29 years. 29 years of pain and suffering is far too long for one fan base to have to suffer through. Well, guys…. The suffering is over. The Royals are going to the World Series, and in the words of Archie, and our boys this postseason, “We ready! We ready! We ready… For y’all!” Indeed we are, Royals. Indeed we are.
I’ll be honest with you: I couldn’t see a thing for the first three innings of this game. I don’t know if it was TBS and their subpar camera work, or if the shadows really were that bad, but I don’t know how they scored those two runs. It says in the box score that Alcides Escobar and Nori Aoki scored both of Kansas City’s runs on a catching error by Caleb Joseph.
The Orioles would get one run back on a Ryan Flaherty solo shot, but at this point, the game would be moot. The Royals took this game 2-1 just like last night, but unlike last night there was a bit more celebrating, for they clenched a World Series berth for the first time in 29 years.
Defense was a huge factor. Today, it was Alex Gordon. Man, that guy is something else. He made another spectacular catch, but then he laid on the ground for a few minutes. I thought something was wrong until I remembered that Alex Gordon doesn’t get hurt. Oh my, that poor wall.
This is crazy, guys. You don’t even have to be a Royals fan to appreciate this. 8-0 in the postseason is nothing to scoff at. Ned Yost is a genius, we’re all idiots. Dayton Moore is a God, we don’t know what we’re talking about. We were all wrong, and they were all right. Holy cow, guys. I don’t know how I feel right now. In a small way… I feel like we just won the American League pennant…
