Royals leave a million people on base in loss to Rangers

The Royals lost today, 6-1, to Texas. I'm not sure it's fair to say that they shouldn't have lost, but they had so, so many opportunities not to lose. They squandered every single one of them.

Just another instance of the two embattled Clay County Commissioners desperately trying to hide their malfeasance from the Citizens.

The Missouri side of the metro must be the Bermuda Triangle when it comes to local government.
Clay County is now neck and neck with Jackson County and KCMO to work really hard to see which will be crowned the most corrupt, inept, arrogant menagerie of people elected to public office.

It's really pathetic and sad to watch.
Especially over and over again.
It never changes.
