Mid-Season Report
Really funny stuff from someone else named Will:

Kansas City Royals

It's really a shame, because had certain idiotic prognosticators' preseason views come true (including mine), the long-suffering loyal fans of the Royals might have finally broken through this year. In retrospect, thinking the Royals could contend this year is insane, but it didn't seem so at the time. It was certainly drawn up well; Carlos Beltran would explode in his walk year while new additions Juan Gonzalez and Matt Stairs would combine with the Ken Harveys and Angel Berroas to prop up an inexperienced pitching staff in a weak division. It fell fast and hard, and now the Royals have traded Beltran and are

currently embalming Gonzalez and Stairs, and don't look to have much hope around the corner. The Royals were this year's Howard Dean internet bubble, and we all now feel really stupid for getting caught up in the hullabaloo. Sorry. Grade: D-.

Worth checking out.
