Who am I?
I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.
The Kansas City Royals are rolling this postseason, and their leadoff hitter is a big reason why. Alcides Escobar could not be kept off base in the American League Championship Series. For the last week, he was 8/16 plus a HBP edging his on-base percentage north of .500. Throw in 4 RBI and 4 runs scored and he was essentially involved in two runs per game for his team. Throw in some gold glove caliber defense, and the ALCS MVP is a big reason that the Kansas City Royals are poised to win their first World Series in 30 years, and maybe one of several in the next decade.
