How Do I, Say Goodbye...
...to what we had?
I have spent all off season, wondering this very question. I love the Kansas City Royals, and I wrote a blog post about attending the very last game of the 2017 season earlier. I knew that what we had seen was special. I knew that those players that I had grown to love would be leaving. I knew that my favorite (Mike Moustakas) would probably go to someone I hate (Yankees, Dodgers, Cubs, etc.)
I watched the pieces fall slowly. First, Soria and Alexander were traded to the Dodgers. Then Moss and Buchter were traded to the Athletics. There was then a little glimmer of hope when the Royals resigned Escbar. But it wouldn't last. Next, Cain signs with the Brewers. I really was starting to believe we had a chance to resign Hosmer, but then he signed with the Padres. I could feel that this was not going to end well.
I was in a funk, not even really following preseason (even though we are going to Arizona to watch a game later this March). And then it happened... MIKE MOUSTAKAS signed a deal to play with the Royals in 2018!!!
In honor of being able to watch my favorite Royal of all time, Here are some of the images I've captured of him over the years. MOOSE!!!
