Around the Kingdom: 2014 Chiefs Draft, Royals Start, and Mike Moustakas

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!

Ever wanted to know how the Chiefs war-room works on draft day? Then you’ll want to listen to Arrowhead Pride’s Keith Halpin’s radio appearance where he discusses that and much more about Kansas City and the 2014 draft.

Do you think the Chiefs need to land a safety in the draft next week? Joel Thorman at Arrowhead Pride argues that the Chiefs will need to land one early. Thorman quotes an Eagles GM Howie Roseman who said:

In terms of the safety class, I don’t think it’s a good group overall. I think you’re talking about a drop-off certainly when you get into Saturday.

While many Royals fans expected better than April’s 14-12 showing, Kings of Kauffman’s Brian Henry asserts that the team’s start is better than most think. Henry writes:

Billy Butler and Eric Hosmer are not going to go all season without a home run, so I feel like there has been some under-performance that will regress to the mean.

If you’re disappointed with Mike Moustakas’ slow start you’re not alone. However, Hunter Samuels at KoK has noticed something you probably haven’t: Moustakas is hitting pitches out of the strike zone at an outrageous rate:

Since 2008, there have been 1,071 qualified batting seasons. Here is the list of players who have had a higher O-Contact% than their Z-Contact%, among those 1,071 seasons: Mike Moustakas, 2014
