If it wasn’t happening before our eyes, this Kansas City Royals dream season would be impossible to believe. C’mon. The small market, basement-dwelling Royals going against the big, bad San Francisco Giants in the World Series? Sounds like a movie script straight out of Hollywood.
Which got us thinking. This incredible, unlikely underdog story needs to be turned into a big screen flick. Like a Moneyball meets Major League meets Lost in Translation (Welcome back, Sung Woo!) hybrid. And when that day comes, we’ve got the perfect cast ready to roll.
