There was an announcement this week that the Royals had added Raul Adalberto Mondesi to their World Series roster, even though he had never played in a Major League game before. That's all well and good, but the big impact is going to come from these two rookies here:
Those are my two little guys, repping the Royals with their new shirts from Grandma and Grandpa. One of the helmets was my souvenir from going to my first Royals game in 1986.
This is an exciting time to be a Royals fan. We stole Game 1, and then Cueto dominated in Game 2 to put us up 2-0. Tenets of Wilson's projections have us at an 82% chance of taking the series now.
My little guy is almost two...He has never seen a World Series that didn't have the Royals in it -- what a charmed life.
Bonus points to anyone who recognizes the trading-card-related item that's seen in one of the pictures of my sons. Can you spot it?
