Series loss won’t diminish Royals’ magical season

The Royals, known for two decades as a punchline, made it all the way to the World Series. This group did that, these talented ballplayers who bonded during bus rides in the minor leagues, then common struggles and triumphs in the big leagues. They lost in the end, but along the way changed baseball in Kansas City for a group of fans who’ve been waiting through more heartache than should be allowed.

Ribcage injury kept Danny Duffy from the Royals playoff rotation

Royals manager Ned Yost revealed Wednesday night after the Royals fell, 3-2, in the seventh game of the World Series to San Francisco that he was prepared to start Danny Duffy in his postseason pitching rotation before the team trainer informed him that Duffy was suffering from a stress reaction in his ribcage, a crack on the outside of the bone, and the discomfort would only allow him to throw two or three innings at a time.
