It was 6-2 Astros in the eighth inning of Game 4, and a blue fog threatened to take over this city. But just when everyone thought the Royals’ season was over, they did what they always do: came back in heroic, breathtaking fashion.
We’re convinced that this team is more than just a team — it’s a superhuman cast so strong and mighty that it makes The Avengers look more like The Chipmunks. See for yourself:
Salvador Perez is … Superman
Super Sal’s got a knack for saving the day — and our season.
Mike Moustakas is … Wolverine.
His nickname might be “Moose,” but he’s got the tenacity — and temper — of a Wolverine.
Wade Davis is … Batman.
Davis does his best work in the shadows, bringing justice to our fair city.
Jarrod Dyson is … The Flash
No one knows what speed do quite like these two.
Ben Zobrist is … Captain America
Blue collar and hardworking, Zobrist embodies all the qualities we love about this team.
Yordano Ventura is … Flamethrower.
A 100 mile-per-hour fastball makes this a no brainer.
Eric Hosmer is … Gambit
Hoz can create an explosion at any time, just like this Ragin’ Cajun.
Alcides Escobar is … Spider-Man
Much like Spidey, Escobar can turn his hands into a human web (gem).
Kendrys Morales is … The Thing
Kendrys see ball. KENDRYS CRUSH BALL.
Johnny Cueto is … Jack Sparrow
Flamboyant, confident, mischievous, unpredictable, and completely awesome.
Terrence Gore is … Ant-Man
Small, fast and mighty. Gore would make Paul Rudd proud.
Ned Yost is … Professor X
There’s no questioning Professor Yost’s leadership of this superhero bunch.
