In honor of Valentine’s Day, let us look at the greatest bromance in the history of the Kansas City Royals, the relationship between Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain.
Ah, Valentine’s Day. Today, couples everywhere show their appreciation with overpriced flowers and chocolates, putting their affections on display. For those who are single, it simply means that there is one day to go before boxes of chocolate go on sale and indulgence can commence.
Then there are those couples who do not need a specific day to show their affections. There are those couples that seem to be perfectly happy and content, who are just going about their business as though it was just another day. Any gifts given are thoughtful and hold a special meaning, as opposed to being purchased at the last minute. It is in this category that we would likely find our favorite bromance on the Kansas City Royals, given the relationship that Salvador Perez and Lorenzo Cain have together.

As we approach Spring Training, Perez and Cain will soon be reunited. Who can forget the entertaining videos that Perez posted when they met back up last year, or the various ways in which Perez would find to torment Cain on a day to day basis? They are far more than teammates; they are truly brothers who have developed an amazing bond over the past few years.
In a way, the relationship between Cain and Perez symbolizes what the Royals are all about. Their genuine liking of one another shows the chemistry that exists in the clubhouse, a chemistry that has helped the Royals perform far better than anyone would have expected based on their roster. That appreciation and affection for one another can permeate a clubhouse, making the Royals a true team, instead of a collection of 25 individuals.
Hopefully, your relationship with your significant other can be like the one that Lorenzo Cain and Salvador Perez enjoy. Their friendship and comradery is great to see.
