Now that we’re halfway, basically, through the season, it’s time to give out our midseason honors to the best (and worst) of the Kansas City Royals through the All-Star break.
The Kansas City Royals will kick off the second half of the 2017 season with a game against the Texas Rangers Friday night at Kauffman Stadium.
To put a bow on what was a ridiculously up-and-down first half (even by normal baseball standards) for the Royals, we’ve decided to hand out some midseason hardware here at Kings of Kauffman.
After a 10-20 start, it seemed difficult to imagine handing out any Royals awards at the All-Star break without a sarcastic connotation being attached to them. But now that the Royals will enter the second half of the season with a winning record, it’s time to give credit where credit is due.
Fair warning: Guys named Mike will be well represented in the coming slides.
