Around the Kingdom: Bruce Chen, Anthony Fasano, and Jamaal Charles

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

The Royals are still mired in mediocrity after losing to the Yankees Friday night. The team sits at 29-32 with more than 1/3 of the season in the books. Aaron Reese at Kings of Kauffman asks a provocative question: Did Dayton Moore really waste a #1 farm system?

Reese writes:

Baseball is a results-based industry and other teams have set the bar. Teams with #1 ranked systems make the playoffs in the few following years. Dayton Moore is on the clock and things are not trending well for his organization.

Bruce Chen is now rehabbing in Omaha, creating a roster issue with Danny Duffy pitching well in the rotation in Chen’s absence. David Hill of Kings of Kauffman wonders what the team will do with Chen when he returns.

Ongoing Organized Team Activities (OTAs) have stirred a lot of questions about the Chiefs. Ben Nielsen at Arrowhead Addict reports that TE Anthony Fasano is looking healthy in workouts—which bodes well for the passing game next season.

Over at Arrowhead Pride, Joel Thorman is also focused on OTA’s and noticed that All-world Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles welcomed rookie OLB Dee Ford to the NFL by juking him “out of his shoes“.

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