Royals Lose World Series to Giants in Seven Games
I feel for the Royals and their fans. I was rooting right along with them. They are in my top five of MLB teams and I love the underdogs. And who is a bigger underdog than K.C.? Ok, maybe the Cubbies. Still it was hard. They are a lovable team who was just fun with their brand of running and youthful exuberance. I was rooting hard knowing that anything less that the title would hit the team and the fans hard. I do hope that at some point soon they can all reflect on it for what it really was which was an amazing run, grab all the American League Champions gear and swag they can and be happy for what they accomplished. It truly was magical. Eight and 0 going into the World Series, sweeping the Tigers and Angels on their run to the American League Championship. No one, no one saw that coming. I know it won't be long before the Royals see the playoffs again. Still as a small market team I do know that they'll have to make financial decisions on players which will make it tough to sustain the momentum. Right now though it should all be about October and the fun the Royals brought to Kansas City.
