It may that an old narrative is about to be revisited with the Kansas City Royals. Remember at the beginning of the year, when teams were throwing at or hitting the Royals, and suddenly Kansas City was that team of hotheads that couldn’t handle success? Get ready for that once again.
Why, you ask? Well, because Noah Syndergaard essentially admitted to throwing at Alcides Escobar with the first pitch last night. The sound you hear would be the crickets chirping instead of an outcry about how Snydergaard should be suspended for the rest of the postseason for throwing at a batter.
