After the way the Yankees were embarrassed by the Texas Rangers this past weekend, I was almost positive that the Royals would wipe the floor with them. I usually don’t like being wrong but I was so glad to be wrong this time.
What a fun three games to watch. There weren’t really any stressful or upsetting moments.
