Royals fans, it’s time to face reality

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Well Royals fans, it’s time.  It’s time to come to the reality that the Royals are back.  Not the Royals we fell in love with the past four years but the Royals we loved prior to 2013.  It wasn’t a love of winning as much as it was a love for the team, the players, and baseball.  The crowds were sparse and the expectation of winning was non-existent; however, they were our...
