TKC Saturday Night Playlist!!! Royals Trading Mike Moustakas Marks Tragic Milestone For The End Of Kansas City Fanboy Era!!!



Once and for all, let's realize that Mike Moustakas was a slightly better than average ball player and nothing more . . . Now he's on the trading block and the hype the surrounded his Kansas City playing days new sadly come to a conclusion.

The dude allowed to enter the K with moose antlers probably marked the pinnacle of local fanboy hysteria with the B-list at best local baller.

More importantly, here's a better round-up of current trade talk:

Kansas City Royals: The Mike Moustakas Sweepstakes

The auction for the third baseman won't merit the team much. His greatest asset is local branding which won't play well with the Cardinals or anywhere other team with far more cultural attractions than sitting in a crowded parking lot eating and drinking for hours & hours on end.

Sadly, after the days of superior performance are long gone, the Kansas City Royals are mired in culture war controversy and muddling through issues like abortion, sex offender recruits and advocacy against pr0n. Meanwhile, lackluster play leaves the home team at the bottom of their division. There's a lesson somewhere in there but we'll leave it hyper partisan hacks to interpret.

Now, as Summer sweat disguises bitter tears, fanboys have nothing more than memories of Mike Moustakas' glory days to console them given that bigger and better cities are focused on building consistently competitive franchises whilst hype has always clouded the minds of Kansas City residents making for easy sales and then, ultimately, bitter disappointment.

And all of this inspires tonight's playlist for this Summer night.



As always, thanks for reading this week and have a safe & fun Saturday night.

Be fair, Moose was way better than average in his heyday. But I will say the Royals waited far too long to trade him.

^^^^ +1 Yes, TKC being far too pessimistic and Kansas City should have waited one year after the win and then traded like crazy. The team was caught resting on its laurels and is now at least 2 years from returning to competitive play.

^^^^^^ You bitches act like this is a bad thing. Think of it this way, this is the only thing that keeps prices at the stadium lower. Fewer fair weather fans during this losing streak is also a break for most of us who have loyally attended and watched games for years.

When are they going to trade Salvy to Price Chopper?

All is well. We won a World Series. Again. We need more out fags on the soccer team. Brookside will be happy.

Gobi, you think they’re 2 years from being competitive? More like 20. The whole organization sucks from the major league to rookie league. The front office sucks as well.

Gobi said...

Again, @9:42 - Way too pessimistic. The team still has solid hitting and Salvy will want to retire with a bang. You get just a few competent pitchers and we are back in it.

2018 will be a great year for KCMO. Record number of murders and record number of losses by the Royals. Where else can you get 2 for the price of 1 except in good old killa city.
