Game 50 Open Thread - Oakland Athletics (22-29) vs. Kansas City Royals (21-28)

Loading Scores

The Royals and Athletics have been two intertwined franchises throughout the years. The Athletics of course, once played in Kansas City, preparing the city with over a decade of god awful baseball the city would get to re-live forty years later with the Royals. The two teams were the dominant forces in the American League Western Division throughout the seventies, with the two teams combining for eight of the ten division titles that decade. The two were again briefly rivals in the late 80s when the Bash Brothers brought Oakland back from irrelevance.

Since then however, the only notable A's/Royals moment was Scott Hatteberg's game-winning home run off the Royals as part of Oakland's insane winning twenty-game winning streak in "Moneyball." And now the A's might be leaving Oakland. Is nothing sacred?
