If it wasn’t happening before our eyes, this Kansas City Royals dream season would be impossible to believe. C’mon. The small market, basement-dwelling Royals going against the big, bad San Francisco Giants in the World Series? Sounds like a movie script straight out of Hollywood.

Which got us thinking. This incredible, unlikely underdog story needs to be turned into a big screen flick. Like aMoneyball meets Major League meets Lost in Translation (Welcome back, Sung Woo!) hybrid. And when that day comes, we’ve got the perfect cast ready to roll.

The Good Guys.
