Column: Royals deserve admiration reserved for championship teams
October 30, 2014
I’m trying to figure out how losing Game 7 of the World Series instead of winning it made the Kansas City Royals any less worthy of the respect and gratitude typically reserved for World Champions. The empty feeling from finishing second quickly gave way to admiration for the remarkable baseball team that posted the best possible postseason record a team could have without winning the World Series.
