Do you remember how the T-Bones stopped paying their bills and went bankrupt? They were bought out and now work with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum The Kansas City Monarchs (Story: Bill Ladson at MLBcom)

The club looked for a name change for several months and worked with long-time fans, branding agencies and league officials to find a new name Monarchs quickly became the most popular and inspiring option NLBM and Brandmeyers MaxFun Entertainment, LLC signed a long-term licensing agreement, which allows the use of the name Monarchs

“The Monarchs are a brand we care about very much, we protect it a lot,” Kendrick said. “But the more we talked and the more we saw the business plan, the more this became [reality] it got us today to this point where we announce this rebranding ”

I was a little skeptical when I heard the news. But if Bob Kendrick is on board, then full speed ahead!

When teams like the Kansas City Royals wear Monarchs jerseys, interest in the Negro Leagues and the museum in general rises, and Kendrick hopes the deal with the T-Bones will do the same, “Negro Leagues baseball hasn’t been in 61 years more played So how do you keep it relevant? ”he said“ And what I saw right away was an opportunity for relevance ”

Frank White, former Royals player and part-time T-Bones coach, said the Monarchs brand is known as the “name of champions.” “The PA spokesperson is going to tell fans before every game,” Now come your Kansas City monarchs, “White said,” And I think that’s a hell of a lot of homage “

KSNT was nice enough to list the players if you don’t want to click the link above:

The Kansas City Royals have signed 14 players, including Scott Barlow, Scott Blewett, Kris Bubic, Carlos Hernández, Jake Newberry, Angel Zerpa and Tyler Zuber; Catcher Sebastian Rivero; The infielder Kelvin Gutierrez, Nicky Lopez and Ryan O’Hearn as well as the outfielder Khalil Lee and Edward Olivares as well as Nick Heath from Junction City

I don’t think it’s not “Newkirking” when I quote Shaun. That’s only when Shaun quotes Shaun, right?

“I’ve lived in Iowa, Chicago, and Kansas City,” Davis said. “Your school stays with you. Where I was a Bears and Cubs fan (in Chicago), I’m now a Royals and Chiefs fan (in Kansas City) But your school, the University of Iowa, is with you all the time ”

I know it’s not baseball, but since these are old KC franchises I thought I’d bring in this story from Rustin Dodd (sub required):

45 years ago, the Kansas City Scouts became a failed NHL experiment. They lost a ton, ran out of money. Their two years included the FBI, cows in the arena, a center that is only on one side of the ice Ice skating, and a happy ending in New Jersey: https: // tco / NHCgLnmt1j

Since not much happened yesterday, today royals blogs are given a dedicated section where they steal the section normally used for “other baseball news”

While I’m sad to see the content isn’t here at RR, I’m happy that Craig Brown has started a new company: Into the Fountains He has a free newsletter (subscribe!) and blogs daily- Post very similar to the great writing he’s always done, whether at BP, here or elsewhere on the internet. Yesterday’s story was a mix of news and notes about Wade Davis and other baseball signings:

Davis has lost about a mile per hour from his fastball every year since 2015.That’s a big problem Last year his heater averaged 914 mph and the opposition dined on it in the tune of a 417 batting average and 1167 slugging Percentage Yikes And that famous cutter? The speed of that pitch has also decreased by about five miles per hour, hitting for a 500 BA and 1000 SLG in 2020. Equally worrying was that his gait rate had increased to over 6 per 9 while his strike rate has been falling in recent years It’s a long shot Davis can contribute, but sometimes long shots

come
Another interesting development for Davis in 2021 will be the use of his cutter, which was his most effective pitch as the Royal and Cub According to Baseball Savant, the WOBA was on his cutter 231 and 233 in 2016 and 2017 Cutter also bolstered by whiff rates of 307 and 35, also in those two years it was 7 percent other than that, while maintaining a 378 percent whiff rate on the Cutter in his first year with the Rockies, the WOBA rose to 274 in 2019 the WOBA 341 and Whiff rates fell to 313 percent. And last year the WOBA and Whiff rates were 618 and 618, respectively 25 percent in a limited sample

Finally, let’s close our “Wade Davis Signing Story-Stravaganza” (that’s a word, right, because I really want this alliteration) with fansided:

I have a folder called “Royals” on my bookmarks tab that I throw away random stories but, as you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t done much outside of the subject lately, and some of those stories are embarrassingly old But it’s off-season and nobody pays attention to it anyway Let’s take a look at this so I can clean up the

folder

We just watched The Good Place and I saw an article (which I can’t find now) that says Ted Danson was the most prolific sitcom actor of all time and I thought, “Wait what?” But then I started to think about it: from Cheers to Becker to The Good Place? That spans 3 decades and shows where he was the main star of each show. Maybe that’s not as edgy as I think Who would you consider the best sitcom actor of all time? I think you have to star in at least two big sitcoms (maybe not as a top player, but part of the big ensemble) As iconic as Jerry Seinfeld is, I think he’s out for only being in one sitcom. In my life I can only think of a handful who even meet this criteria: Michael J. Fox, Kelsey Grammar, Danny DeVito, Ed O’Neill, and Tim Allen

So

Bitcoin has the ridiculous sum of 40$ 000 give or take I mean it’s crazy, could you imagine someone buying something for a few dollars just to jump high enough to pay for a house and get their kids through college ( Cough, RR memes, cough)? How about the story of Dogecoin? It was kind of a joke, but it still exists and is currently trading at 8/10 cents if you check out the news on the pricing page, apparently starting Thursday you can even use Dogecoin to pay for Pornhub What a World In Who We Live Anyway, here’s a 2018 CNET story about the rise and fall of Dogecoin about “how Dogecoin went from being a joke equivalent of Bitcoin to being one of the most valuable cryptocurrencies in the world – before it all collapsed” I wanted to start listing things in this story like the Dogecoin NASCAR car, the joke cryptocurrency “Bells” based on Animal Crossing, the Jamaican bobsleigh team, it has a market cap of almost $ 2 billion – but I can just do it doesn’t do it justice It’s so very intenet-y

And finally, let’s talk about beer or at least something St Louis thinks it’s about beer: Budweiser Do you remember the whole deal a few years ago where Bud used ads to accuse other beer makers of using corn syrup, which means they didn’t use any? This led to a lawsuit and possible theft of Budweiser’s recipes:

In May, a judge ordered Anheuser-Busch InBev to stop using certain languages ​​related to corn syrup in its advertising and allowed Miller Coors to continue action. Last month, the Anheuser-Busch court ordered InBev to stop using the To discontinue the phrase “no corn syrup” on its packaging

The new, heavily edited legal act alleges that a Budweiser brewer employee sent information, including recipes for Bud Light and Michelob Ultra, to a Miller Coors employee at the time of the Super Bowl. The Miller Coors employee previously had for AB InBev allegedly requested the prescriptions via text message and said he was asked by Miller Coors senior management to provide information on Bud Light, the legal complaint reads

According to the court records, the Budweiser employee printed out screenshots of the recipes, folded them up and removed them from the brewery.The employee then sent photos of the recipes to Miller Coors employee Anheuser-Busch InBev stated in the court documents that his recipes were Certain mixtures of hops and barley as well as the weight and volume of the ingredients contained It describes the information as “extremely valuable” to competitors

This was in 2019 and I have no idea what ever became of this case

It was during the Christmas break that we first shared the original Star Wars trilogy with my 5 year old son.He will grow up with my childhood knowing that (40 year old spoilers!) Darth Vader is Luke’s father long before he did understands why this matters in the first place This is in contrast to my wife, who first saw the films when she re-released the Special Edition, and the person who gasped audibly in the theater was probably to the confusion of everyone around her around teenagers

By the way: should we show the five-year-old any other films? I mean know the obvious answer but I think he would like episode 1 so we thought about showing him episode 2 is trash and episode 3 is too dark so we’d probably just stop there I thought too that he could probably watch episode 7, but probably not 8 or 9 either. Sure, the simple answer is just leave it on 050406 and call it a day But it is possible that we also show him 1 and maybe 7 thoughts?

Ok, ok – back to the video games. All of this is practically relevant to today’s song of the day, however. As was predicted, “Given my love for all things Gamecube loves, it is a deadly lock that we at some point as villain leaders will see”This” sometime “is today

One more distraction and let’s jump into the game. When the Gamecube came out, I was a poor college kid scratch that off – I’d dropped out of school and had a pretty miserable job (um, kids, don’t do that) I only got a 5th generation video game console after the end of the generation Generation (N64 or PSX) and mostly only played on friends’ consoles.But I was very excited about the 6th Generation Unfortunately I was poor in dirt and had no money to burn such frivolities

An employee of mine was a really big Star Wars fan and really wanted to play Rogue Leader, but he didn’t care about Nintendo, so he wasn’t really interested in the console, so he suggested me a deal: he’d pay half for it that he was going to keep the console for the first 6 months and then he would be done with it I think he felt a little sorry for me and knew how much that meant to me so I was extremely grateful that this is one of the reasons why the Gamecube will always have a special little place in my heart

If you’ve never heard of it or played it, I’ll just quote the original 2001 review by IGN’s Matt Casamassina:

It has taken more than 20 years but a development studio has finally captured the spirit and beauty of the Star Wars trilogy films and wrapped it all up in one action packed game that represents Star Wars Rogue Squadron II: Rogue Leader developed by Faktor 5 the development of the LucasArts shooter franchise, which came to life on Nintendo 64 a few years ago.The GameCube sequel includes all new levels based on scenes from the trilogy, the ability to control classic crafts as Jedi hero Luke Skywalker , and more secrets than easy to count, and it’s probably the prettiest track we’ve seen on a home console Cheer

While all of the components of Rogue Leader are strong on their own, they come with a large amount of polish and ultimately make RL far more than the sum of its parts Thanks to the tight graphics and impressive gameplay, Rogue Leader: Rogue Squadron holds true without further ado as the most formidable launch title for the GameCube GameCube owners looking for a showcase for their new system owe it to themselves to pick up a copy

Just check out the video below.Yes the graphics are a bit grainy by today’s standards, but keep in mind that this was one of the launch games for the Gamecube.But remember, we’re only a few months from the N64 and the Original Playstation removed These FMVs look like they were cut straight from the Special Edition (pause for comment) and shrunk to the cute little Gamecube disc size

Here is the game introduction and the first level in which players are thrown straight into the Death Star’s trench:
