    KANSAS CITY — You almost have to start believing when the Royals’ margin of victory comes via two home runs by Erik Kratz. Don’t you? Kratz, a 34-year-old journeyman catcher, was picked up from Toronto on July 28 in exchange for utility infielder Danny Valencia — and

    Sc -- magazine mug.phatch

    If you’ve ever dreamed of diving into a pool full of twenty-dollar bills, just head to Bramlage Coliseum. That’s the headquarters of the K-State athletics department, and they’re swimming in money up there. It’s spurting out of spigots so fast they

    Kinder: Firing Patterson could prove a risky gamble for Currie

    We’ve seen bold and daring before, and in five years time, John Currie has been nothing short of that as Kansas State’s athletic director. Currie was aggressive in overhauling K-State’s fundraising efforts, taking over an athletic department riddled with missteps and turning
