The Cardinals don't consider the Royals much of a rivaly, but it is a huge rivalry to the Royals. The Royals demand 3 games against the Cardinals in KC every year, because it does help their revenue. This year, the Royals come to St. Louis, but it isn't always that way. If the Cards and Royals only play 3 games in a season, then they will likely be in KC to try to get Royals fans to the games. The Royals are far from good, but they usually play better against the Cardinals.
