The Kansas City Royals have SWEPT THE ENTIRE PLAYOFFS! http://www.kansascity.com/sports/mlb/kansas-city-royals/article2835511.html No team in history has won the first 8 straight in the postseason! I have waited TWENTY NINE YEARS for the Royals to return to the playoffs. From 1976-1985, the Royals were in the postseason 7 out of 9 years. They lost the World Series in 1980 to the Phillies, and beat the Cardinals in 1985, my senior year in High School. They won The Wild Card Game, beating the A's at their own game. They swept the Angels, the team with the best record in baseball, and held Mike Trout - one of the game's best players - to one hit for the whole series. They swept the Orioles - the second best team in baseball. It's on to the World Series!
