Weekly Wrap: Suspensions, Moose & Gordon, and Chiefs

Almost a month into the regular season, and the Royals are 12-6, a half game behind the Detroit Tigers in the AL Central. Of course, they could be at least tied for first had they not s**t the bed this weekend in Chicago for a rainy, brawl-filled series. They travel to Cleveland to begin a three game series tomorrow before returning to Kauffman to take on the Tigers for the first time this year on Thursday.

It was more suspensions for the Royals this week, as Yordano Ventura got 7, Edinson Volquez got 5, and Kelvin Herrera and Lorenzo Cain each got 2. Herrera’s 2 games are on top of the five that he was suspended for throwing at Athletics’ Brett Lawrie last week. That will mean a missed start for both Ventura and Volquez, and 2 nights of lost offensive production. Of course, all players will be appealing their suspensions, so there is hope that maybe Cain can get his reduced to just a fine.

Top 5 WR options for Kansas City Chiefs in 2015

With the offseason in full swing, the Kansas City Chiefs have begun making moves to improve their offensive core in 2015. They cut Donnie Avery and A.J. Jenkins last week, and are projected to make more moves later on to free up salary cap space.

The Chiefs ranked 29th in passing yards in 2014, and relied heavily on Jamaal Charles and Travis Kelce. They had that infamous record of zero wide receiver touchdowns, and struggled all year to find that one guy who could make an impact.

Adventures with FIFA

While I have really tried to update my blog regularly, I must admit that I have become really lazy since the end of the baseball season. The Chiefs left me with far too much to desire, and neither the Seahawks nor the Patriots interest me enough to write about them. Instead, I’m going to write about FIFA.

I don’t own FIFA, but I do have a demo downloaded on my PS4 (which you should buy, if you don’t have one). While I am not a fan of soccer at all, FIFA has certainly peaked my interest. I’d like to take this time to run through some of my favorite and least favorite parts about FIFA.

Describing the Chiefs season in one word

It was a bittersweet end to the season for the Chiefs, as they took down division rival San Diego, but also missed the playoffs. Fans were scoreboard watching, hoping that maybe, just maybe, Cleveland and Jacksonville could work some magic.

Of course, it didn’t have to come down to the last week. The Chiefs went 3-4 in the last seven games of the season, after an impressive 6-3 start that included a five game winning streak. They were one game better than last year (2-5) in the last half of the season, but not as impressive in the first half as last year (9-0).

Week 15 Preview: Chiefs vs. Raiders

The Chiefs look to bounce back from their 3 game losing streak this week, as they face the Oakland Raiders in a rematch of that ugly Thursday Night Game that started this whole thing.

There was nothing glaringly bad about that last game against Oakland, except for the 14-0 deficit to start the game, and all the minor mistakes that led to the Raiders game winning touchdown drive late in the fourth.
