    From Slovakia to Municipal Over the years I’ve become fascinated with the history of the Kansas City Athletics. I’m not sure why, other than geographical relation.

The fans’ relationship with the team was often strained, first by numerous lopsided trades made with the Yankees and later by ...2024

    Photo by David Cooper/Toronto Star via Getty Images That’s what speed do! Over the years, there is a perception that the Royals are a franchise infatuated by speed. Don’t get me wrong, speed is something you can’t teach, and I enjoy a stolen base, a triple or a terrific outfield play as much as the next guy. And speed most often facilitates those plays. But if a hitter can’t get on base, t...2023
