Gear Up for a Title Run! ALCS
EXCITED for the AlCS?! We are too! Get all your MLB gear here at Disco Sports and gear up for a title run! This one should be exciting! Who would have thought that it would be 2014 before a team from Kansas City or Baltimore returned to the World Series? After all, the Royals had been in the playoffs seven times in 10 years and the Orioles had played in six World Series between 1966 and '83. They were fixtures. And then they weren't. Now that they're back again is only part of why the ALCS should be so much fun. Here are 10 reasons: 1. These are clearly the two best teams in the AL. 2. These lineups are about as much fun as it gets. 3. Nobody catches the ball better than these guys. 4. These are two of most timeless ballparks in baseball. 5. You never know what Orioles' manager Buck Showalter will say or do. 6. Both teams have lockdown bullpens used to controlling the late innings. 7. Yordano Ventura, the best $28,000 that the Royals have spent, is a rookie starter with a $100 million arm. 8. Steve Pearce, who has hit 21 home runs for the Orioles since they designated him for assignment in April, and the Royals' Nori Aoki are the kind of players who can help these mid-level-payroll teams go. 9. Hall of Famers Jim Palmer and George Brett will be on the property. 10. Crab cakes vs. KC BBQ.
