         What if the 2nd half of the 2010's were the years of Kansas City Domination? Wouldn't that be something to see? Time will tell, of course, but what a sight it would be to watch the Royals build on what they started in 2014.
            I do not care what anyone says. 2014 was a surprise to everyone and was one of the beat stories for baseball, and the record books, that has been seen in a very long time, or ever.
         No American League team has ever gone undefeated till the Championship Series.  Even the National League had only seen that feat 2 times in baseball history. & those were not easy wins.  They were playing some of the best teams in the game, and trams the Royals did not play well against during the regular season.
          The Giants had to put up a historic effort to win over Kansas City, and they were only able to do it with the smallest of victory margins in a 7 game series. 
        For me, it was a World Series for the ages.  Neither team looked to make the post season and both had to use the Wild-Card to make it in. The Giants never lost more than one game in any series through the play offs, and the Royals did not lose any. & for this fan of both teams, I loved every moment of that World Series.
        What each team will find in 2015 will have to unfold this spring.  The Giants have a huge hole to fill at 3rd base, and the Royals will need to keep that very impressive pitching staff together much like the Giants of 2010 had to do to remain successful.
