Around The Kingdom: A.J. Jenkins, Bullpen, Danny Manning, Winter Is Coming


 

Kansas City is one of the best sports towns in the country, and KC Kingdom has a lot of fun bringing you news from around the area for our professional and collegiate teams.

Few fans are as passionate about their teams than Kansas City fans, whether it is making Arrowhead Stadium the loudest outside venue in the world, or filling up Sporting Park each match, or being Royal in Kauffman Stadium. The area also supports three of the most passionate college fan bases in the country.

Each morning, we will try to bring you some news from around our sports kingdom, in addition to the news, information, editorials, and analysis KC Kingdom already provides.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom.

A.J. Jenkins is the topic of discussion on Arrowhead Pride as Matt Conner wonders if maybe Jenkins might develop with more of an opportunity.

Andy Reid has been consistently positive about Jenkins potential going forward. Jenkins finished this season with only 8 catches for 130 yards in his first season with the team. This comes after zero catches in his rookie season with the 49ers.

On Kings of Kauffman, Ed Connealy reminds us that as good as the bullpen may be for the Kansas City Royals, the pitchers are in the bullpen for a very good reason.

Let’s take a deep breath, and realize that every guy in every bullpen is in that bullpen for a reason.  He is not good enough to start or close games.  Expecting a lights out, automatic set up man and closer is expecting quite a bit.

A couple of good things from the Lawrence Journal World and Kusports.com:

Danny Manning is moving up to the ACC, taking a job at Wake Forest, not far from where he grew up. Danny Manning led Tulsa to the NCAA Tournament this year.

Fun fact, Wake Forest’s basketball venue is called the Lawrence Joel Arena. I like that!

Also, KUsports.com reported that Kansas assistant basket coach Kurtis Townsend is the top assistant in the country. Nice to know.
