  • Young Royals relishing chance to mature in minor leagues Royalscolor.mercury

  • Stat-heads still dismissing Royals

    SURPRISE, Ariz. — The stat-heads hate the Kansas City Royals. Most of them, anyway.

    DERBY — Armed with a pair of dynamic shooting guards who could light it up offensively at any given moment, the Manhattan High girls’ basketball team won a lot of games this season on the backs of its two most experienced players. But the Indians were always susceptible to a loss ...
