A Crown Fit For a King

Championship Collectibles –> Official Royals Memorabilia

Congratulations to the 2015 Kansas City Royals on their World Series Championship.  The small market, big hearted KC club outlasted the New York Mets to win the World Series in 5 games.  Kansas City showed zero quit in all four of their wins coming back from a deficit in each.  They just seem to have a perfect roster with the perfect no quit personality.  This young team was led by their heralded farm system of the late 2000’s including All Stars: Salvador Perez, Eric Hosmer, Alex Gordon, Lorenzo Cain, Alcides Escobar, Mike Moustakas and many more.

We have added over 15 new championship products to honor these Royals.  The link is on the top and bottom of the page. We offer the lowest prices on Championship framed photos and coins.  These items are timeless and will remind you of the amazing, improbable 2015 Kansas City Royals!

Bummed Out

We love baseball because you will see a play or a situation you have never seen every single game you watch.  Game 7 proved that once again. You could write multiple novels on everything we have witnessed in the past month of October baseball.  Some would be heartbreaking tales, some triumph and another a tale of excellence.  Madison Bumgarner could play many roles in this story – the villian, the savior, the machine.  Bumgarner cemented his legacy with three appearances that will never be duplicated.  Out after out, he picked apart a pesky Royals bunch.

Game 7 lived up to its billing.  Often described as the best night in sports because every pitch, every swing can change the fate of a city.  There is no tomorrow and managers will use every ounce of energy these ballplayers have left.  The Royals miraculous run through October ended last night – 90 feet away from tying the game.  You knew they would not go quietly with the resilience they showed all October. The Royals gave not only Kansas City a month to remember but an entire nation seemed to be pulling for the underdogs.  Of course a World Series would have been the perfect storybook ending but it was not in the cards this time.

Although the build up of the World Series was not as big as years pasts, this Fall Classic delivered wonderfully. These teams battled to seven games which happens about once a decade. And we got to see history with Bumgarner’s numbers.  Writers predicted it to be the “Worst World Series of All-Time” but it was far from that.  It was a well played, well managed and fun series all around.  The only problem with the series is that they are done playing. Couldn’t we get a Best of 9 going for a series this close?  Another great postseason in the books, congrats to the San Francisco Giants!

MLB LCS Preview

One week, two sweeps and two four-game series into the MLB Postseason and we ready to advance to the League Championship Series.  While the National League’s looks close to what we expected, the American offers some new characters to the reality show that is postseason baseball.  Fresh off of 3-game sweeps, the Baltimore Orioles will face the Kansas City Royals in a best-of-7 set with the winner representing the AL.

In the senior circuit, October mainstays, St. Louis & San Francisco will do battle.  The Cardinals clinched their 4th straight trip to the NLCS last night when they knocked out Clayton Kershaw for the second time in the series.  While many have grown accustomed to late-inning heroics coming out of the STL, the Giants are have been riding some late inning magic also.  The Giants show up to the NLCS with the sort of mojo Boston had last season.  Sure they do not have rugged beards, but they have a lot of winning players and arguably a deeper line-up, rotation and bullpen than the presumable favorites from the midwest.  Looking forward to a competitive 4-2 series win for San Fran.

Over on the AL – ALCS/NLCS Preview expect the unexpected.  Both teams come into the ALCS as preseason long-shots to outlast the big names – Yankees, Red Sox, Angels, and Tigers.  It is hard to argue either team is coming in with an edge as they both used some magic to close their opening series.  Both fan bases are rabid and yearning for a pennant.  Pitching usually trumps all in postseason series, and the Royals boast a stronger rotation and bullpen than the O’s.  The Orioles hit the long balls, the Royals play small ball and rely on 2-out hitting and base running.  Which club will run out of steam in the ALCS? Predicting a 4-2 series win for the Royals.  A close, close series.

Play ball!
