The Royals and Cardinals basically sitting in the same position in their respective divisions…Royals 3 games out, Cardinals 3.5 games out.  I’ll tell you why I’m more optimistic about STL’s chances at this point than I am KC’s.  (HINT…did you see Ian Kennedy pitch last night?)

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has to be getting tired of all the questions about Patrick Mahomes.  He is the ultimate pro because by now, many of us would be telling the media “Hey, I’m still the starting quarterback…why don’t you ask about how I’m playing in practice?”  Yet Smith takes the questions in stride.  I’ll play some examples.

Other topics…this is not to bash soccer, this is to offer a suggestion.  Jay Cutler has been recycled in the NFL (oh boy)
