KC Royals Lighter Shade Of Blue: Moose Season Over
The KC Royals game scheduled at Kauffman Stadium for Thursday night vs Chicago petered out on it’s own volition like an old dusty votive candle taking it’s last breath.
Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas being injured chasing the same foul ball last week is as devastating as Rex Hudler and Brad Fanning straining their vocal chords screaming for the same cab. Just writing about it reopened an old hangnail injury from my pitching days. I think I may have pulled something. No, that was pork, never mind.
How can Moose season be over? I don’t even have my license yet.
And shouldn’t it be Mike “Mad Cow” Moustakas? Does a moose moo? I’ve never been to Australia.
Speaking of Moose, I always wondered where Bullwinkle got those sweaters he wore that said “Watsamata U”. (looking for a friend) Can’t find any on DealDash.
Gordon was struggling prior to the dynamic duo injury. Probably due to his nickname. Ouch! ‘Gordo’. That’s short for Gordon. Wow. Moustaka is short for Moustakas but you don’t see anyone sporting ‘Moustaka’ tee-shirts. I’d like to see some of you go by ‘Gordo’ and try to get a hit. Let’s work on that.
The Moose-Gordo collision was inevitable. ‘Alex The Great Gordoni’ would never collide with ‘Mad Cow’ Mustakas. Who’s naming these guys? VP of community affairs and publicity Toby Cook? Heck, who named Toby Cook?

How about Kendrys Morales? KEMO? Like chemo? No wonder he’s struggling at the plate and is now injured.
An outside-the-box listener called into radio 610 and provided a suggestion for Kansas City Royals starter #4 or #5. 1985 World Series MVP Bret Saberhagen. That’s just stupid. I’d like to see Sabes fill in at third for Mad Cow, so he wouldn’t be available to pitch.
He’s got a cannon for an arm.
The name! Bret. Good fit for a KC Royals third baseman.
He could swing the bat.
He’d never waylay an outfielder.
Hal McRae was a fairly aggressive player. He could fill in at third base. He would clothesline anyone that got that far. Mad Cow McRae.
I’m brainstorming here for Ned and Dayton. The ideas are poppin’.
I think I’ve reduced it down to two simple words: Bill Merrifield. Whit’s pappy. Dude was awesome.
UPDATE: It was just announced that flocks of geese attacked the remaining Royals players, beaked them aggressively and honked at them. They will all be on the DL and out till early December. No games will be played. Tickets are still good for the same day at the same venue. Instead of live baseball games, videos of the Punt, Pass and Kick semi-finals from the late ’70s will be shown on the JumboTron. No cameras please.
To quote the KC Royals favorite, Mike ‘Mad Cow’ Moustakas, from Twitter on Thursday just minutes after it was obvious he was lost for the season: “Let’s Go Royals!”

Great attitude. Just like Greg Holland last season.
