    Cameron: Thanks for everything, Alex, but Royals are moving on

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    It almost seems unfair. Just a week ago, Royals fans were gearing up for the fifth game of the World Series — riding a dreamy high that exploded with a dramatic comeback victory over the Mets that same night. Yes, that was all just a week

    Guggisberg: Wildcats can grow from loss to Baylor


    With his tongue squarely in his cheek and a smirk on his face, Deante Burton delivered some difficult news to the Kansas State faithful after Thursday night’s 31-24 loss to Baylor at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. When asked if he thought another narrow defeat

    Cameron: Now, we start playing by the NL’s rules

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — So far it’s been golden. Two games, two wins. But now the World Series moves to New York, and an entirely new phase. Let’s call it… hmm… How about the Stupidity Series? Yep, this is the part where they change

    Cameron: Get to know a little about the mystery Mets

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s almost impossible to stay unknown in New York City. Baristas who make the best café mocha in the financial district find their way into newspaper profiles. Garbage haulers get TV time for rescuing cats — on competing networks. Bottom line: The

    Game 5, maybe series, turned on one pitch

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    Thousands of baseball games have turned on one pitch. It happened to the Royals on Wednesday, pushing the American League Championship Series back to Kauffman Stadium with Kansas City still up 3-2. The weird thing about the biggest pitch in the Blue Jays’ survival game,

    Guggisberg: K-State historically bad in shutout loss


    There’s no shame in losing to No. 19 Oklahoma. Unless you get shut out, 55-0. After back-to-back weeks of surprisingly-close losses to ranked teams, the Kansas State football team came crashing back to earth in historic fashion Saturday afternoon at Bill Snyder Family Stadium. This

    Cameron: Free-swinging Astros head to Kansas City

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — So… It’s going to be the Astros, then. Yes, the same Astros who averaged 104 losses over the past four seasons. But hey, didn’t we really all kind of know it would come down to this matchup? I’m pretty sure

    Make me the boss and we’d fix what’s ailing baseball

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    Let’s see, what can we talk about as the Royals stagger through the final week of the regular season? It looks very much like Toronto (42-14 since July 28) will continue to bash monstrous home runs to go with its awesome pitching — and thus cruise

    Cameron: Chiefs were on verge of breaking curse, until… the fumble

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ahhhh… Life always offers up a new experience. On Thursday night, for instance, we learned the sound of nearly 80,000 people being punched in the solar plexus at the same time. Do you have a better description for that gruesome gasp that accompanied

    Cameron: Johnny Cueto, meet Steve Blass

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    A horrible memory crossed my mind while watching Johnny Cueto get battered by the Orioles on Sunday night. Actually, it was just a name. Steve Blass. In case you’re not old enough to remember Blass, he was a terrific right-handed pitcher for the Pirates
