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

Now that GM John Dorsey has been in charge of the Chiefs for two years, a number of pundits are attempting to suss out his team-building philosophy. SI.com’s Greg Bedard, who writes for the Monday Morning Quarterback column, has an interesting article where he asks Dorsey about his approach.

Arrowhead Addict’s Ben Nielsen looks at Bedard’s story, and expands upon the implications of Dorsey’s choice to turn down offers to move back in the 2014 draft:

Much of Dorsey’s draft plan has been a slap in the face to the common perception of his team. Chiefs need a wide receiver in the deepest wide receiver draft in years? Dorsey draft zero wide receivers. Chiefs need depth and more draft picks? Dorsey declines trade offers for more draft picks.

Royals fans have been calling for struggling 3B Mike Moustakas to get sent down to Omaha for nearly a month. Now that the Royals have finally made the move, Kings of Kauffman’s David Hill wonders whether the team has waited so long that it has destroyed Moustakas’ confidence.

Meanwhile, The Kansas City Star’s Sam Mellinger asserts that  the team needs to stop sweating the small stuff and grow up.
