Some World Series Numbers That Benefit the Royals (And Mean Nothing)

As our nerves begin to run high with the Kansas City Royals hosting game one of the World Series tonight against the San Francisco Giants, one of the big talking points we hear is that there's just too much down time for the Royals between the end of the ALCS and the beginning of the World Series. That talking point has been mitigated somewhat by the fact that the Giants have just one less day of rest after ...

That is pretty impressive considering he's also seen Archie Bradley, Taijuan Walker and Mark Appel. All Zimmer did to backup that declaration Monday was strikeout 11 hitters in just 5 innings of work including nine outs in a row from the 2nd through 5th innings. Checko ...

We did it. The Kansas City Royals are the 2014 American League champions. How freaking cool is that? I'm not much for saying "we" when talking about my favorite teams because what role do "we" really play in their success or failure? I don't think a lot, but I do think the fans have had a hand in this run with the great crowd support during the games. But more importantly, we endured. We endured losing seas ...

Royals Took Winding Road to World Series

After Yordano Ventura gave up a three-run home run to Brandon Moss in the top of the sixth inning on September 30, it looked for all the world like the Royals season was over. I'm not ashamed to admit that I sulked in my seat during that game through the bottom of the sixth inning and the seventh inning. When Alcides Escobar stepped to the plate to start the bottom of the eighth inning in that game, I had a ...

This Date In Royals History–October 15, 1985

1985: Hal McRae drove in two runs and George Brett homered to lead the Royals past the Blue Jays, 5-3, at Exhibition Stadium in Toronto. With the win, the Royals forced a Game Seven in the ALCS. The Royals took advantage of two walks in the first inning to grab the lead. Toronto starter Doyle Alexander walked Willie Wilson and Brett with one out, and McRae’s single scored Wilson. The Blue Jays tied the scor ...

Fathers, Sons and Number 35

There’s just something about baseball that is unique to fathers and sons. Sons learn the game from their fathers and the fathers look to reclaim their youth teaching the sons. It is the circle of life wrapped around 108 stitches on a baseball. Through a very gracious gift from a friend, last night I got to watch a postseason baseball game with my son. Even better is that I got to watch the 2014 Kansas City ...

Royals’ Dyson: The Swag That Stirs The Drink

So, Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson ruffled a few feathers on Saturday when he was asked about the ALCS possibly moving back to Baltimore for Games 6 and 7. “No, sir, I don’t. And I don’t think they think that way, either,” Dyson said, essentially saying the Royals will win two of the three games in Kansas City. I love it. For so long, the Royals have been a team devoid of character—not the good kind of pers ...

Just a Win Away

(Photo Peter G. Aiken-USA Today) The Royals used a familiar game plan to move within one game of the World Series on Tuesday night. Outstanding defense combined with solid starting pitching and a superb defense was what paced the Royals to a Wildcard game and it won the third game of the ALCS for Kansas City. Starter Jeremy Guthrie survived the 2nd inning to allow just one run after allowing back to back on ...

This Date In Royals History–October 14, 1980

1980: The first World Series game in Royals history started off so well, with the team taking a 4-0 lead after three trips to the plate. But the Phillies exploded for five runs in the bottom of the third and went on to a 7-6 victory at Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia. The Royals took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second against Phillies starter Bob Walk. Darrell Porter led off with a walk and Amos Otis home ...

The Kansas City Royals are Matthew McConaughey

Matthew McConaughey has been a part of our lives for probably a little bit longer than Jennifer Love Hewitt.  Now that I think about it, I'd say he is probably the male version of JLH.  MM came up as Wooderson, the fun "older guy" from "Dazed and Confused" and then he graduated to bigger roles in movies like "A Time to Kill," "Contact," or "The Wedding Planner."  Later in his career he was the star of "We A ...

Zimmer Sparkles in Second AZFL Start

(Photo Minda Haas) Royals 2012 1st Round Pick Kyle Zimmer showed what he can do when fully healthy Monday night. Facing a smattering of prospects from different organizations the Royals #1 pitching prospect by my estimation dominated in his five innings of work. It took the righty a tad bit to get it going as he walked the first hitter he faced on the day and allowed that hitter, Darnell Sweeney, to steal s ...

Royals ALCS Game Three Rainout Implications

As you've heard, game three of the American League Championship Series between the Royals and Orioles has been rained out. There's good and bad that comes from that. The bad news is that we have to wait another day for the ALCS to resume, but the good news is that the players get another day off to rest arms, legs and everything else that might be bothering them at the end of a long season. Let's take a loo ...
