Should Downtown Kansas City Trust The Royals Amid MLB Union Beef?!?

Kansas City remains a union town. 

This doesn't compute for internets bots, trolls and suburbanites who have lost their ability to think outside of a corporate media paradigm.

However, in this cowtown, even staunch conservatives support unions and collective bargaining for working people. Anyone who doesn't is irrelevant and doesn't understand how local voting works.

Strangely enough . . . Union support is one of the last remaining bipartisan political realities here in flyover country despite how much it befuddles Beltway consultants.   

Accordingly and in solidarity with workers ranging from baristas to millionaire ballers . . . 


Truth is . . . The plan is a bad idea for a lot or reasons but the union trouble for the MLB is worth considering as new owners for the Royals have seemingly purchased a problematic franchise that's coping with a bevy in problems AND remains in a "first to worst" slump since 2017. 

For now, here's a quick roundup of union beef . . .

The Kansas City Royals also released a statement addressing the Spring Training delay.

"This is the time of year for celebrating the sights and sounds of Royals baseball. While we had hoped to open spring training on time, we know that Major League Baseball and the Players Association are focused on getting baseball back on the field," the Royals said. "We can't wait to welcome our fans back to the ballpark both in Surprise and Kansas City, and to create new memories together throughout [the] 2022 season."
