Oh, the poor Royals. They are lagging behind in what is arguably the best division in Major League Baseball. The Twins, Indians and Tigers are mired in a 3-team race for the division title and (probably) the Wild Card, while KC is just excited when a few thousand fans show up to a game. However, lack of a winning record does not mean a team is devoid of Hotties.
Ross Gload slides home. He has 15
HRs Runs and 24 RBIs on the year.
Edited to add: a wonderful video I cannot believe I left out.
Mark Teahen (left) and Russ Gload.
Teahen has been a pleasant surprise on one of my fantasy teams,
as he’s hitting .290 with 43 RBIs and 47 runs scored.
Mark Teahen gets a forearm bump.
Damn, he looks so modest and sweet…..
Joey Gathright (right) shows his pearly whites….
Gathright makes a diving catch in center.
He’s hitting .315 this year and has 5 stolen bases.
Brian Bannister makes a funny face!
Brian’s been solid,
with a 3.71 ERA.
Mark Grudzielanek, former Cardinal, but current Hottie.
Grud gets congrats after driving in the game-winning run.
Last, but not least, one of the Hotties of KC is the stadium.
Kauffman Stadium was the sole baseball-only facility built in the
majors between 1962-1991.
The park’s best-known feature is the fountain and waterfall display behind the right-field fence. At 322 feet, it is the largest publicly-funded fountain in the world. There is a 10-minute water show after every game. Kauffman Stadium is also the locale
of your writer’s first Major League baseball game.
Just for Disco Stu:
Thanks for reminding me, DS.
