KC Headlines: Getz Gone, Sporting KC’s Nielsen Ready for Saturday, I’m Ron Burgundy?


ABOUT LAST NIGHT…

Seattle 34, New Orleans 7

Best team in football, no question. And if they get home field advantage then they only thing between them and a Super Bowl appearance is probably San Francisco’s running game. Otherwise, assuming health, they are practically unbeatable at home.

CHRIS GETZ is out in Kansas City after not being tendered a contract yesterday. In four seasons with the team Getz hit .248/.305/.295 with a 66 OPS+. He had more sacrifice bunts/flies and hit-by-pitches combined (42) than he had total extra-base hits (39) in his 332 games as a Royal.
