Real...

Goose’s Tuesday Take – The Royals Suck at Sucking

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com At the beginning of each baseball season, fans of every team have a possibility of 3 plausible expectations. To contend for a championship. To be around .500/mediocre. And lastly, to stink.  The Royals were considered by many to be members of the latter group. In a year where Eric Hosmer departed via free agency, it became clear that a .500 team in 2017 had only grown weaker. With a bottom...
