Go, Home Team, beat the Visitors!
First I should note that I spend approximately zero time following organized sports. I take an interest in how the local teams are doing, but only as much as it takes to stay familiar with the hometown terrain. (If a team is doing well and has a big home game coming up, I might want to avoid the traffic.)
So I know that the K.C. Royals haven't had much good news this season. This report might be the first "bright" spot so far:
The Arizona Diamondbacks are the first team in either league to be "mathematically eliminated"--i.e., there is no possible chance of their making the postseason.So. Not the Royals, then. Congratulations, guys!
