Cowtown Rundown: Kansas City Sports News 7/19

Here's your daily dose of Kansas City sports news...

Royals are two bad days from last place

Will from Royals Review recently said the Royals are two bad days out of last place.

Indeed, the Royals are 11.0 games back and the Indians are 12.5.

How did this happen?

A week before the All-Star break we were debating whether Ned Yost should be talking about the playoffs as the Royals had won 10 of 13 and were seven games back from first place.

Now the playoffs are a joke. The Royals have no shot and they're battling to stay out of last place.

Ugh.

Check out Royals Review for more Royals news.

Page drawing attention for the Chiefs

Back in the first week of July, I reported that the Lions had inquired about Chiefs safety Jarrad Page.

A week and a half later and ESPN confirmed it.

Now, the Detroit media is catching on and discussing the Lions interest in Page.

What will happen?

I imagine as we get closer to camp, the Chiefs are waiting on the Lions offer to increase. With Bernard Pollard last year, it'll be interesting to see how the Chiefs handle Page.

With Weatherspoon gone, Mizzou's Ebner comes into focus

Sean Weatherspoon was one of the better Mizzou players in recent history. He was personable, marketable and, most importantly, very good as evidenced by his first round selection by the Falcons.

Now that he's gone,the focus turns to Will Ebner.

5. Will Ebner, Missouri: Big hitter. Tough, too. Consider that Ebner was back on the field two weeks after having arthroscopic surgery on a knee he injured against Nebraska. He had 78 tackles last year (9 1/2 for loss) and that was despite starting seven games. And with Sean Weatherspoon gone, expect Ebner’s impact to be even more magnified.

Ebner will now be looked at to fill part of Weatherspoon's leadership. It'll be interesting to see how he responds.
