Around The Kingdom: Missouri Tigers News, Batting Clean Up, Draft Day Bargains, and Kansas State Wildcats


 

 

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 may also pass along an interesting post or two from around the world wide web, just for fun.

We hope enjoy the news from Around The Kingdom. Happy reading!

Did you know the Kansas City Royals don't have a home run from their clean up spot yet?

Did you know the Kansas City Royals don’t have a home run from their clean up spot yet this year? That’s right, not a one. Not only do they not have a round tripper from the number 4 spot in the line up, but neither Billy Butler nor Salvador Perez, the two guys who have batted clean up, have a home run, no matter where they have hit in the line up. David Hill of Kings of Kauffman delves into the void that is the clean up spot for the Royals.

Laddie Morse of Arrowhead Addict discusses some draft day bargains that Kansas City Chiefs General Manager John Dorsey was party to in his time with the Green Bay Packers. With the Chiefs’ cap issues right now, few teams are in need of some draft day magic than Kansas City. Let’s hope John Dorsey has a few rabbits in his hat.

On Busting Brackets, Joseph Nardone is reporting that Tim Floyd may be a candidate for the Missouri Tigers men’s basketball head coach position. Floyd, you may recall, was once the head coach at Iowa State.

Missouri Tigers football looks to have lost a quarterback. Brad Rowland of FanSided.com reports that Trent Hosick is transferring. Maybe with Maty Mauk entrenched, and Drew Lock recently signed for the future, Trent Hosick didn’t believe there was a place for him any longer at Mizzou.

C. Austin Cox of The Best College Sports News Network has a nice article on the Kansas State Wildcats’ baseball team. The Wildcats, defending Big 12 champs, have shut out the opposition an amazing 6 times already this season.

Be sure to check out KC Kingdom throughout the day for news on the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, Tigers, Wildcats, and Jayhawks.
