Week 4 NFL Picks

The wounds of a Week 3 Chiefs loss have been licked and we’re onto Tampa Bay. Eesh. Not the type of “get right” game you’d want to see on the schedule for Chiefs fans – the Buccaneers have a fast defense and aggressive defensive line, two things that don’t mix with the Chiefs current state […]

Week 2 NFL Picks

After a successful 2021 season of picks, Scobes picked up right where he left off in Week 1 with an impressive 9-6 overall ATS. That’ll play. McGannon however turned in his test to the teacher after a night of binge drinking at the black jack table, and brought home a 4-11 record ATS. Oof. Week […]

Creed Humphrey Friday (On A Wednesday): Week 1

The NFL is back and that means the best center in the NFL is back in action. Creed Humphrey opened his 2022 season by turning #91 on the Cardinals into his personal practice dummy, stoning him on every pass rush attempt and clearing running lanes that even Clyde Edwards-Helaire could run through. Just like we […]

Monday Morning Piss Heater: He Can Fly

On Saturday the Milwaukee Brewers designated Lorenzo Cain for assignment. The two-time All Star and 2019 Gold Glove winner was the catalyst and best player on the 2015 World Series winning Royals.

Tracking The Royals Offense June 13, 2022

The Royals drew 23 walks in their 7 games last week and jumped all the way to 23rd in MLB in offensive walks. Usually such an accomplish wouldn’t be met with much acclaim, but finishing 23rd in walks on the season would be tied for the best season under Dayton Moore in that category. While […]

Monday Morning Piss Heater: The 1991 Kansas City Blades

Kansas City will never be confused as Title Town, but the forgotten championship in the 90s resides in the Kemper mausoleum belonging to Kevin Constantine and the 1991 Blades. Led by Arturs Irbe in net, newcomer Gary Emmons at center, and the 342 PIMs in 66 games by Kevin Evans, the Blades took home the […]

Tracking The Royals Offense June 6, 2022

After a brief rise in the walks, home runs, and runs category rankings, the jolt the Royals got from the rookies being inserted in the lineup was offset by losing a struggling Salvador Perez to injury and other general ineptness, so the rise has plateaued the Royals offense to their usual “very bad, just not […]

Monday Morning Piss Heater: June 6, 1944

One of the most important days of remembrance in our great country is today, D-Day. It is this day a group of boys stormed a countryside unknowing what type of death awaited them, but certain the end of their time was near. They did it anyway. The fight against evil must be met with courage, […]

John Sherman’s Unwillingness To Act Is Going To Cause A Reckoning

I’ve slowly been inching towards writing this for the past few months. John Sherman unwilling to acknowledge the catastrophic failure of the Royals baseball operations department is going to cause a shit storm of drama Kansas City has not seen since the late 1990s when the team was rumored to be sold to billionaire Miles […]

Tracking The Royals Offense May 23, 2022

The Royals offense continues to inch closer to top-20 in baseball after an insertion of young talent into the lineup on a more consistent basis. In two weeks the offense has jumped two spots in both walks and home runs, and three spots in total runs scored, thanks to the production of Bobby Witt Jr., […]

Monday Morning Piss Heater: Jaron Rush Breaks Backboard

The late 90s in the Kansas City Metro were owned by Jaron Rush. Rush was every suburban little brothers must see event. When Pembroke Hill traveled north of the river, it was little bros opportunity to see their 5’10” big brother get embarrassed by the biggest star in the city. Gyms everywhere were standing room […]

It’s Time For The John Sherman Era To Actually Begin

A month ago, I asked how harsh we should be on John Sherman. He bought a team during a pandemic, then was hit with a work stoppage and a broadcast streaming catastrophe. Less than savory circumstances in which to take over a MLB franchise that was on a steep downward trajectory after a brief, yet […]
