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!
Modern analytics are not just the stuff of baseball nerds. Football analysts have been making inroads in using math to quantify performance. One of the premier sites for such advanced analysis is Pro Football Focus. Arrowhead Addict’s Lyle Graversen reports that PFF has rated 6 Chiefs among the top 100 players in the NFL.
Meanwhile, Ben Nielsen of Arrowhead Addicts suggests TE Travis Kelce is a breakout candidate. Let’s hope Ben is right, because Alex Smith needs a reliable target in the middle of the field.
The Royals still need a boost for their offense. Kings of Kauffman’s David Hill thinks the Royals should swap underperforming prospect Mike Moustakas for Boston’s similarly disappointing Will Middlebrooks.
Jeff Jaffe of SI.com reports that ex-Royal Jeff Francoeur is pitching down at AAA for the Padres. Oh lord. Please let AAA hitters continue to rock Frenchy because the last thing we need this season is to give Dayton Moore any excuse to bring his favorite son back onto the roster.
Be sure to check out KC Kingdom throughout the day for news on the Chiefs, Royals, Sporting KC, Tigers, Wildcats, and Jayhawks.
