You didn’t think this was going to be easy, did you?

In the later innings of Friday night’s 7-5 loss to the Seattle Mariners, I did something I haven’t done since I’ve been covering the Royals: I checked the out-of-town scoreboard. I wanted to see if Detroit was winning; if the Tigers won and the Royals lost (and that’s what happened) Detroit would be back in first place. Instead of being upset about that, I thought it was kind of cool: I was scoreboard watching—just like the old days.
