It's a different world we live in now. Baseball is nowhere near as popular as it once was, and football, despite all of its' issues, is as popular as it ever has been.

So like it or not, KC is a football town. Just like every other city that has baseball and football. (outside of say St Louis, and maybe Boston).

Maybe Boston?

Doesn't it go Sox-Bruins-Celtics/Pats?

I really like professional football, but following baseball is much more rewarding.

I agree with your stance, chris, and I'm happy I typically have the attention span to follow baseball.

Jell-o is yummy.

10 yrs ago, definitely.

Now, it's probably:

Celtics/Sox-Pats (take your pick)/Bruins

The Bruins owner killed a lot of the fan interest in that team.

And I guess I was just comparing cities as far as baseball vs football and the popularity of the teams that cities have both of.

I agree the Celtics are probably the most popular team in that city.

I wasn't meaning to start a debate about which city liked which sport most.

My point was that the seeming lack of baseball enthusiasm in KC hurts.

I don't like St. Louis, but I wish our city loved their baseball team as much as they do.


True dat..I know the population base isnt that much bigger in the St. Louis metro but the Cardinals organization has about 10x the history and tradition in baseball over the Royals...About the same as comparing KU and Ksuck basketball. The Cards, Yanks, Cubs, Mets, Red Sox all draw great...What other teams do well. Saw a Rockies game the other day vs the Braves and there was more Brave fans than Rockies fans in Coors Field....and that was about 150...lol.....And the Marlins after the building that new stadium is drawing like crap so far this year. Hey I will do my part...been to one Royals game so far....going Sunday afternoon...

Big time missed opportunity there in the 3rd.

Chance to get back in the game.

Absolutely, Chris. It was a great AB by Cain. Would have loved to see him put one in the gap though. Mendoza is awful. Let Chen start and see if he'll do any better.

Agreed. I would have liked to see Moose up with the bases loaded. He seems like he's getting back on track. He may have struck out, but he would been swinging for the fences.
