Two great photos for your weekend viewing pleasure...

This is the only photo you'll ever see of Alex Gordon's FIRST professional base hit!

Billy Butler slams an RBI double on Thursday, October 20.

A big thanks to RC correspondent Jason DeHaai for the great photos! He actually sent us six other photos of equal quality, but we figured we'd let you chew on these great shots for a while. RC only hopes to do as well as Jason when we head to Arizona in two weeks. But we can promise you a surprise new feature to RC, which we will unveil from Arizona. You'll have to stay tuned to find out what the heck we're talking about.

Here is an excerpt from a neat story I just read:

You don't hear much about Royals fans anymore — the ones who are still out there try not to leave the house. The Royals have been reduced to a punch line — they recently lost 19 straight games, which is almost impossible. But Kansas City is a great baseball town. This is the town of George Brett and Buck O'Neill.

If you're a Royals fan, the worst part isn't the 20 years since your last playoff appearance. The worst part is that you need Walt Disney's imagination to picture it ending anytime soon.

The Royals lost 97 games in 2002, 104 in 2004 and 106 this season.

They somehow went 83-79 in 2003, but in retrospect, that must have been the result of a clerical error.

Kansas City fans used to look out at their stadium's waterfalls in September and think of how lucky they were. Now they look out at those waterfalls and think, "Wow, I bet if I tried, I could drown in there."

Welcome to life in baseball's forgotten cities. You hear about things like the "wild card" and "division series," but those are just TV shows to you, and you can't tell if its reality TV or something that's filmed on a Hollywood set.

You pin your hopes on a few young players, but if they don't peak early and at the same time, they'll never win together.

Dunno who wrote that column, but I think he's completely wrong when he said it takes the imagination of Walt Disney to picture the losing ending soon. On the contrary, I would submit it doesn't take much of an imagination at all.

In fact, you can see two very tangible pieces of that future right in this post. Another piece is presently enjoying the spring weather in Australia. Then there's the outrageous payroll flexibility the Royals have, as well as the first overall picks in the 2005 Rule 5 draft and the 2006 amateur draft.

This team has a lot going for it. There's no need to feel sorry for ourselves.
