Gotta Walk Before You Can Win

For many years we've heard reasons to why the Royals aren't winning. Whether it be they need to "become more fundamentally sound", "do the small things" or "be taught how to win". It seems that there is always something that seems to be getting in the way of the team's ability to win games. This year the narrative that Dayton Moore and Ned Yost have chosen is that the "Royals need to get better at hitting w ...

The Royals continue their tour of Sox as they had to Chicago to take on their division rival, the White Sox. The two teams have matched up nine times this season, and the Royals have gotten the better of them in six of those matchups. Part of that is due to the good fortune of only facing Chris Sale once during those nine games, but wins are wins and this is a big series for the Royals who are hoping to re- ...

Royals Should Sell, But History Means They Probably Won’t

After the fears of many have been realized, the Kansas City Royals are now in the home stretch of July and under the .500 mark. This may seem familiar. Just last year the Royals didn't reach the .500 mark to stay until they beat the White Sox to win their sixth straight and got to 51-51. They'd fall back to exactly .500 once more before finishing the season on a strong note and getting to 86-76. At that tim ...

Mixed Bag

Bowden Blowing Trade Rumors - Jim Bowden of ESPN tossed out a trade rumor of Marlon Byrd for Sam Selman today. If that's the case and the Royals haven't already pulled the trigger then I have to question their sanity. Lefty Selman has some upside as witnessed in his 2nd round pick selection and dominance of the Pioneer League when he arrived in the organization but the bugaboos in control have resurfaced. T ...
