  3. Random thoughts before Game 6

    David Schoenfield

    I'll be honest: I'm rooting for the Royals. The first games I remember watching as a kid were the 1976 playoffs between the Yankees and Royals. Even then, although the Yankees had just returned from a 12-year postseason absence, I knew they were the ...

  7. Too much Bumgarner for Royals in Game 1

    David Schoenfield

    After a postseason that has given us game after game of late-inning drama, I guess we were due for a game such as this one. You feel bad for Royals fans who were so excited and pumped up before the game. Although the team that won Game 1 has gone on ...

  15. More spectacular defense from Royals

    David Schoenfield
