Kansas City Star To Royals: Trade Whit Merrifeld For COVID Vaxx Vengeance

When one group of losers gives advice to another . . . Something bad is bound to happen.

And whilst the Star is slowly transitioning into a non-profit . . . They prize politics over baseball.

Sadly . . . That seems to be the case with Dayton Moore in charge as well . . .
