Cowtown Rundown: Kansas City Sports News 7/16

Daily dose of Kansas City sports news....

Royals return to the field

The Royals return from their longest break of the season on Friday.

Zack Greinke will take the field after taking the mound last weekend. He's facing the A's on Friday night.

There will also be a look back at the Kansas City A's and crazy Charlie Finley this weekend.

We'll have previews of the series and notes from Royals Review.

Mizzou preview mag is coming

SB Nation's Rock M Nation has a preview magazine coming out for the 2010 football season. Here's what they said about it:

The 94-page production will include position-by-position walkthroughs, opponent (and remaining Big 12 teams) previews, a reference section, and history pieces for 1985, 1960 and 1935 (25, 50 and 75 years ago).  We are even more excited to mention columns from Dave Matter and site members Michael Atchison, ghtd36 and The Beef.  To say something has been a labor of love is extremely cliche, but in this case it is absolutely true.

Bill Connelly is one of the best at SB Nation. This should be something you buy (I am).

English says Morris is good

Recently, Mizzou guard Kim English was asked who the best player he would face this year is. He said he didn't know but he does know KU's Marcus Morris is pretty good.

That may be an understatement. Morris will be the best player on KU this year and if KU does anything in the postseason it will be largely due to Morris.

Ron Prince story gets better

The story of Ron Prince's secret buyout is getting better and better. Here's a full rundown of the story but this is my favorite part:

In Charlottesville, Krause made an offer: If Prince agreed to nullify the buyout agreement, Krause would purchase an insurance policy on his own life and designate Prince as the beneficiary.

Seriously.

Rodney Harrison loves Eric Berry

Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison looooves Chiefs rookie Eric Berry, according to Harrison himself on a recent appearance with Soren Petro on 810 WHB.

Here's a snippet of what he had to say:

Let me say this. Everyone always talked about me being a hitter and I look at the kid, Eric Berry, and I love this kid. I thought he was the best defensive player in college football. I thought he should have went number one. I know Suh is big and all this but I love Eric Berry. People say, 'Maybe you're a little biased.' No, this kid is phenomenal.

Yeah, he likes him.
