Got off to a great start with a 5-1 Royals win last night. Bruce Chen pitched a gem...again. What a stud he has been for the rotation since he was plugged in there. And how about Justin Maxwell? The acquistion at the trade deadline that EVERYONE loved hit another homer last night.

Remaining pitching matchups:

8/9 - Peavy vs. Santana
8/10 - Doubront vs. J-Guts
8/11 - Lackey vs Big Game James

Should be an exciting weekend at the K. Think they can draw 120,000+ fans in this 4 game series?

22K fans on a Thursday night doesn't seem that bad to me.

Should be packed tonigh and a near sellout Saturday.

22,000 on a Thursday night doesn't seem bad to you because you're conditioned to a fanbase with two decades' worth of (well-earned) apathy. There are few things in sports more exciting than the home town team in a playoff chase. Place should be 30+ a night right now.

Yep, I agree.

Especially with the Red Sox in town....22k is not a good turnout. Better be packed all weekend.

I can honestly say that I don't remember attending a sold out game at the K....in my life. Closest thing I've seen is when the Cards come to town. So your probably right.

Kauffman just not that fun of an atmosphere. Can't even swim in the damn fountains.

I like Kauffman as a ballpark. Only downside, even though it brings some upside with pregame grilling, is the location.

The atmosphere's only ever as good as the crowd, right? Other than Allen (and only then a couple times) the best sports atmosphere I've ever been in was a baseball team playing in a football stadium where about 12% of the seats faced home plate.

When they move Kauffman downtown, I'll attend more games. I'm still furious they spent $250m to renovate when a new stadium could have been built downtown for $350-375m. Also, KC has some of the best sport design firms in the world, so I'm sure it would have been amazing....lost opportunity.

If you think they could get a new baseball stadium downtown for 300 million thats worth a crap..your nutz....think 500 million minimum. I have no probs with the renovated K or even renovated Camarohead. The surrounding area sucks but you are in a huge secured parking lot that is great for tailgating.

Go to the Atl and fight the homeless roaming through your tailgate area and then tell me how great a downtown ball park is...not so great in some cities...

That wouldn't be a problem here. Downtown stadium makes a ton of sense in KANSAS CITY. Don't care about "da ATL" or anywhere else. It would work HERE.

There not going to do it no matter what you think. The new K and Camarohead is more than fine enough for midwestern clod hoppers. My friend has been to several games at Target Field and even though he liked the stadium he hated the experience of that downtown in a similar city like KC offered...As in no parking....crazy expensive venue...he stated he liked Turner Field much better in the crappy hood surrounding in Atlanta. The K is fine for many more years.

Again, don't care about other cities. It makes a lot of sense HERE.

Downton handles 10's of 1000's of tourists every single week.

If and when the Royals sell, the stadium staying in Raytown is not a sure bet at all past 20 years from now.
