6 Things Pharrell Thinks the Kansas City Royals Must Do To Make the Playoffs

You know who Pharrell Williams (a/k/a "Pharrell) is, right?  If you listen to pop music at all, you can hear him on songs from the last year like "Blurred Lines" or "Get Lucky."  More recently, his hit song "Happy" might be where you know him best.     How fitting that Pharrell also happens to play center field for the Kansas City Royals: Yep, that's him-I'm sure of it!  Pharrell loves playing for ...

Performance Evaluation; Royals Outfield Review

What can you say about the Royals outfield play so far? Other than fantastic there isn't much one can really say to be honest. Alex Gordon - Easy Team MVP so far as pretty much every Royals blog and writer predicted Alex has started off on fire and appears to be playing at the level most had thought when he was drafted. Not only is his play on the field outstanding but his presence is even creating an impac ...

Looking At The Royals’ 2013 Payroll

I think we can all agree (and have) that the Royals will need to add at least one, probably two, good starting pitchers in the offseason if they want to contend in 2013. The last week or so has shown what this team can do if the starting pitching is good, and I feel reasonably certain the offense will do well enough to win next year. I think we can expect, with varying degrees of certainty, a bounce-back ye ...

Royals Recap: Brewers at Royals 6.14.12

Royals Recap: Brewers at Royals 6.14.12 (Shaun Marcum vs. Luke Hochevar)  The Royals offense stole the show tonight by being absent once again.  In eleven of their last twelve games, the Royals have scored four or fewer runs.  Taking it a step further, they’ve scored fewer than four runs in ten of those games.  The Royals are currently approximately 26th in the league in runs scored, 20th in on-base p ...

Wil, Royals moving positions?

For the fifth consecutive game in which he has played and for the ninth time this year Wil Myers played Centerfield on Wednesday for the Naturals.  While some prospect analyst may not believe there is anything to this I believe this is a developing situation for the Royals and their top prospect.  Myers was compared to Dale Murphy coming out of high school as a catcher who has the speed and body to develo ...

Royals thoughts spinning in my head

Spring is winding down so before we get into predictions on the upcoming season I thought I'd write about what is going on in my Royals mind. From the KC Star's Bob Dutton Speculation suggests that to-be-named player will be a 2011 draft pick — players are prohibited from being traded for a year after being drafted. Signs point to that pick being someone selected between the 10th and 20th round. Taking a ...

Royals Option Gio and others

The Royals made a move Sunday that was pretty predictable if not downright expected yet totally unwanted by the majority of fans when they optioned Johnny Giavotella to Omaha in favor of Yuniesky Betancourt and Chris Getz. The Royals smartly are sticking to the stance that they are making the decision based on defense:  “(Giavotella) needs to continue to focus on his defense,” manager Ned Yost said. †...

Bench idea and some Extras

Bob Dutton brought up an interesting bench idea during the radio broadcast yesterday.  The idea of carrying CRob on the 4 man bench. I must say that while I don't think there is any chance of this happening I do like the idea.  CRob is a big power bat and with the Royals weak links offensively mostly being right-handed hitters CRob would be a nice late inning pinch hitter to bring in to face tough rightie ...

Bench Warmers

photo by Levi Payton The 2011 Royals were ridiculously injury free. I don't mean to put a damper on your morning so early in the day and so early in Spring Training, but it's pretty unlikely the Royals will get away so easily on the injury front in 2012. Now, it is true that having a young team certainly helps to keep teams healthy, and the Royals are certainly young, but I would bet a large sum of money th ...
