DESPICABLE 'WE'LL GET'EM NEXT YEAR' KANSAS CITY ROYALS LIE MUST STOP!!!
At the end of another disappointing season for the Kansas City Royals, mainstream media is propagating the same lie that they've told for more than a generation and it needs to stop if this town's baseball team ever wants to make any real progress.
To wit . . .
BLIND HOPE FOR THE KANSAS CITY ROYALS "NEXT SEASON" IS NOTHING MORE THAN LOSER TALK AND A SHAMEFUL CORPORATE MARKETING SCHEME!!!
Furthermore . . .
THE REALITY IS THAT THE ROYALS DIDN'T REALLY IMPROVE THAT MUCH THIS YEAR AND THE TEAM REMAINS MEDIOCRE AND OVER-HYPED!!!
Supporting facts . . .
- A BARELY winning season is the only shred of hope that fanboys cling to . . . And it's pathetic given that big, better cities settle for nothing less. Celebration of this insignificant achievement only encourages mediocrity given that most of those wins were in noncompetitive games and added up to NOTHING.
- Now, following an annual "moneyball" tradition . . . The players who did stand out this season will soon LEAVE KANSAS CITY IN THE DUST and move to better markets with more competitive pay. Kansas City fanboys would really lament the impending trade of Ervin Santana if they weren't too busy looking for another great white hope.
- Only the bravest sports newsies mention that an exceptionally week division and AL League decline overall is what most likely led to the illusion of Kansas City Royals success.
And so . . .
THE COMMON KANSAS CITY REFRAIN THAT "WE'LL GET'EM NEXT SEASON" IS ONLY SOMETHING THAT LOSERS SAY!!!
Sadly, that catchphrase dominates sports talk in Kansas City and is once again being repeated for baseball fan suckers after another season without any significant improvement and only the illusion of progress.
