It’s been awhile since pie was awarded to anyone. You probably are asking why that is the case, and if you are, know that it’s because you ate that slice of pie before I could give it out! Nice work putting pie in your pie hole, you pie-hole. I’m kidding of course, the real answer is that no one deserved any pie, dammit!
But this week is different. There is an obvious and very deserving group of individuals that deserve some pie. Not only do they get some pie, they get to choose the type and where it is made. They are just that special. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to the Kansas City Royals and their fans an entire selection of local pies. Congratulations, Kansas City, your fans and Joe Posnanski for one hell of a dominant season.
UPDATE: MLB.com has a solid article on key aspects of what made the Royals successful this postseason. Not extremely insightful, but it does highlight how fantastic they were during the postseason, and the big risks they took that paid off handsomely, all of which helped them get that World Series title.
