Hello…Is thereanybody out there? Man, the Chiefs/Nationals have some work to do to generate some interest in this club. For years I looked forward to getting rid of the Jays, and I was hoping we’d get the Mets. Unfortunately, we got stuck with the Nat’s. The Nat’s are a mess. Let’s hope the Chiefs can put together a competetive team this season.

So who won? Did anyone play well?

While it certainly takes more effort than necessary to find out about this year’s team, info is out there and it can be found (no thanks to the local rag, sad to say). Personally, I think the Chiefs could have a pretty decent team this year, and next year should be even better. The Mets have only the name. They’ve traded away many of their top prospects in the past year. Also, their desire to have an ownership stake in the Chiefs would have been a disaster for CNY. I’d advise anybody upset about not landing the Mets to relax, because I really believe Chiefs fans will have the last laugh.
