At the Mike: Post season baseball is upon us

Does anyone else think the Kansas City Royals just got better for the playoffs with Greg Holland getting hurt? Wade Davis has been the most dominate relief pitcher in baseball the past two seasons.

Charlie's Inside Corner: Troubles by the score

There is a notable Country song that was recorded by numerous artists including Ray Price, Buck Owens and Dwight Yoakam that includes the lyrics, "I've got heartaches by the number, troubles by the score."

Charlie's Inside Corner: Cut, Johnny, cut!

Maybe Johnny Cueto should cut his hair. Do those "Dreads" not agree with the Kansas City heat and humidity? Does Johnny even have a barber? All interesting thoughts while pondering the slide down the unwanted slope of pitching futility that has attached itself to Johnny Cueto since he joined the Royals.
