This Date In Royals History–October 25, 1972

1972: The Royals have never played a game on this date. But in 1972, Kansas City traded starting pitcher Jim Rooker to Pittsburgh for reliever Gene Garber. The Royals had selected Rooker with the sixth pick in the 1968 expansion draft. The right-hander was part of the rotation for the inaugural 1969 season. Although he posted a discouraging 4-16 record that year, he actually pitched much better, with a 3.75 ...

No DH? No Problem As Royals Head to San Francisco

As the Royals head into Game 3 of the World Series in San Francisco, the obvious change is the difference in lineup rules in an NL park. That means no Billy Butler as DH to start the game. ESPN's Jayson Stark suggested that this was a major sticking point for the Royals and puts them at a steep disadvantage, citing history as his evidence. And the numbers alone do give cause for concern, as AL teams haven't ...

The Reason For The Season

In a small way, a baseball fan donated over $2,500 to a homeless food pantry, traveling over 6,500 miles across 11 time zones to do so because of a sick day, a chant by a rabid group of soccer fans , narcissism and ESPN2. Let me try to explain. It was January, 2012 and I took a sick day off of work. I probably wasn’t sick or just sick enough to write down in my office while watching television. It was a wee ...

The World Series is heating up. Keep that warmth going strong with a big pot of this chicken tortilla soup to sustain you through the evening and Game 3. Pasilla chiles give this broth a rich depth, but don’t add as much spicy heat as you’d imagine.

Thank You, Royals

You might think this is a hard thing to write, but I find it pretty easy, actually. As Royals fans, we all should be thanking this franchise. Yes, they are just doing what they’re supposed to do by making it to the World Series, but I think we all know that it’s not that easy. Of course, part of that has been some luck—I don’t think even the most optimistic fan would argue that this is the “best” team in th ...

Shields Lacks Stones, Giants and Bumgarner Have Plenty in Game One

Big Game James was far from that in the Royals first World Series game in 29 years. From the first inning when the Giants battered the changeless Shields for three runs there was no escaping for Shields. It started in the very first at bat with former Royal Gregor Blanco singling on a change up that Shields left up. Following a productive Joe Panik at bat Pablo Sandoval put the Giants on the board with a do ...

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 ...
