Feeling like the underdog can sometimes be the best feeling in the world due to the fact that no one expects the underdog to win. The Kansas City Royals have experienced this before they made it to the World Series this year. Not many people expected them to set a record with staying unbeaten so far in the 2014 postseason.
They have put together an outstanding run with their 7-0 record beating out the Detroit tigers and Baltimore Orioles. The Tigers have probably one of the best starting pitching cores in the league right now. They have starters that have proven to be effective during the regular season putting up ridiculous numbers for pitchers. It was a shock to many people, including myself, to see them beat the Tigers. I was not really a surprise to see them beat the Orioles, but to move into the World Series staying unbeaten was amazing.
It is my hope that they remain unbeaten and win the World Series, because they have proven that they want it more than anything. It’s their drive and teamwork that shows that they can win it all. They are not a big ball club like the Yankees, Red Sox, Tigers, Dodgers, and others, but they have proven that they can compete with the best of the best.
Being the underdog can be the best feeling in the world and the Royals are determined to prove that underdogs can win in big games even when people don’t believe in them.
