On to the Royals. I know for a fact they have an awesome fan base.

Theyre actually a bunch of bored Chiefs fans. lol

Ever been to a Royals game?

Probably 30+ times. I lived there for 6 years.

Awesome stadium. May not have the same attendance, but they're as passionate as Cubs fans.

The Royals were always second fiddle in KC. Its such a hardcore football town. The entire region lived and died with the Chiefs every Sunday. I remember you could tell if the Chiefs won or lost on Monday mornings, just based on everyones mood.

That passion translated a little to the Royals, but it really was Chiefs fans in offseason mode. Royals tickets were like $5 and the stands were always half empty. It was more of a summer evening activity.

When Jason Whitlock started at The Star, he tried writing about the Royals, but was very critical. He said "I stopped covering the Royals, because people got upset when I criticized them. The team is thought of like a special needs child. You cant say anything bad about them or people say "hey, come on now. Leave them alone!"

But yeah, its a nice stadium. I went to a Royals/Cards game in which KC won 17-13, and saw Mark McGwire hit a HR.

just growing pains man. i still have very high hopes for him. he wasn't in the playoffs last year due to how he pitched down the stretch last season (high IP count)

this year he started out well, but is struggling again now. his fastball has velocity, but is just flat. doesn't matter how hard you throw, if its flat a MLB hitter will eventually catch up to it. haven't looked, but i wouldn't be surprised if he lead the MLB in HRs given up.

still has tons of upside. he is only 23. not everyone can bust onto the scene and dominate like wacha has.
