It’s possible to serve up a pile of meat to a crowd without a lot of effort. When you don’t want to spend hours over a grill or smoker braising is the way to go.

Series Preview: Royals vs. Detroit Tigers, September 19-21

The Kansas City Royals conclude the home portion of their regular season schedule with their biggest home game since October 27, 1985. If you think I've used that line before, it's because I have, and it remains true. This series is the most important series the Royals have played in the lives of many fans, which is simultaneously sad and amazing. The Royals have to get past the big, bad Tigers who they tra ...

No Joke: Aoki Is On Fire

If I would have told that Norichika Aoki would break a Royals record at the beginning of the season…..well I wouldn’t have, so don’t worry about it. The fact is, an offseason trade acquisition by Dayton Moore is one of the hottest hitters in all of baseball. He has been the lone consistent bright spot over the last few games, accounting for nearly half of the hits the Royals tallied against the Chicago Whit ...

The Royals manager has shown this year that winning for the Royals is getting the lead after six innings and then turning the ball over to the PENitentiary in Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland.

With so many players available to Yost sitting on the bench curr ...

Series Preview: Royals vs. Chicago White Sox, September 15-17

After a terribly disappointing series against the Boston Red Sox, the Kansas City Royals welcome in socks of a different color in the Chicago White Sox. After a disastrous series to open the homestand, the Royals badly need to win this series. In the end, we might realize they needed to sweep this series to have a real chance at the AL Central, but at this point, a series win would be sufficient. The Royals ...

They haven't had a stretch this poor since a 8-18 run from June 19 through July 21st and it couldn't have come at a worse time for a team barely hanging onto a division lead and wildcard spot.

Friday Notes

The Kansas City Royals remain in first place, which is pretty cool considering that it's now September 12 and they've held that top post for more than a month now. Some have argued the point that the suspended game set to be completed on September 22 is most likely a loss and that we should account for that when looking at the standings. To that I simply say that we shouldn't account for that loss just yet. ...
