Are The Royals And Cardinals A Rivalry?

Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star argues there just isn't a rivalry between the Royals and Cardinals.

First: 1985 was a long, long time ago.

Second: the Royals just aren’t good enough to have a rivalry with anything but a night at the movies.

I'd say geography makes them natural rivals even if they place three times a year but Mellinger makes some good points.

1985 was a long time ago...but what else do we have to cheer about? If the Royals were better, this would be a rivalry. But, then again, if the Royals were better we wouldn't have to keep bringing up a series that happened 25 years ago.
