Rob Neyer was hosting a chat during the Rockies-Dimondbacks game tonight, and someone asked him "Who will win the World Series first, the Pirates or the Royals?"
His answer was "The Pirates before the Royals, but I don't think either of them will ever win it again."
A KC native followed up on this answer, asked him to explain himself, and Neyer said "You're assuming that the Pirates and Royals will exist as long as the MLB does. And I don't believe that's true."
So, basically, one of the smartest baseball writers out there (and a Royals fan) thinks the team will be contracted or moved before they win the Series again. Geez, that's encouraging. Anybody got a bottle I can crawl inside of?
