Monday Links: Royals rolling through playoffs

Without a doubt the most compelling storyline this postseason has been the utter dominance displayed by the Kansas City Royals. Currently up 2 games to none in the best of 7 American League Championship Series against the Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City’s fortune this October has come from all facets of the game. While the Royals […]

Giancarl-no Stanton

Oh boy, that title sure was a doozy. But oh well, it gets my point across; Giancarlo Stanton won’t be coming to Boston this off-season. Don’t get me wrong, I love Stanton and could spend literally all day watching replays of his home runs on youtube. But it’s just not going to happen, at least […]
