Free Agent faux pas the Royals should avoid

Following a trip to the ALCS the Royals find themselves on a new frontier as a small market team that could be a desirable destination. Prior to this year the Royals often found themselves on many players no trade list because they didn't want to land in Kansas City due to many years of losing or they wanted the contract leverage of forcing them into taking a contract option. While that latter is still a po ...

Great Theater: The Royals in 2014

In the 1989 film Major League, the Cleveland Indians - after years of dismal results - field a team of relative unknowns, built by their owner to lose enough to move the team to Miami. Along the way, the ragtag group (including a speedy outfielder who comes out of nowhere, a fireballing rookie who becomes a local favorite, a slugger who struggles with breaking pitches, and a catcher who seems to play every ...

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 ...

Mixed Bag 10.17.14

Zimmer Update - Keith Law wrote that Zimmer or Tyler Glasnow of the Pirates were the best starting pitching prospects that he's seen so far. 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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Dear Dad: The Kansas City Royals Let You Off The Hook

When I was a very small kid, we moved to Kansas City in 1982.  We had moved around a lot in my previous 6 years of life; 4 different large towns/small cities in 4 different states in that time.  The first was one several miles outside of Cincinnati, Ohio and that was where most of my family was from.  We were Reds fans, fresh off the glorious ride of the Big Red Machine.  I couldn't tell you much about thos ...

Looking Back, Looking Forward

The first thing I noticed was a lot of blue. Powder blue, royal blue. A lot of blue. Jerseys, caps, shirts. Kansas City had turned out for their team and a large group had shown up to watch at Kelly's Westport Inn. Every TV was showing the FSKC pregame show except for one, which was tuned to the Twins/Tigers game. A small group was around that TV watching before the Royals game got started. At this point, t ...

#Yosted

If you know anything about Major League Baseball, you know that the Kansas City Royals fan base is one of the most tortured over the course of the past 30 years.  There is no need to re-hash the darkest days of the franchise between 1995-2006.  During that time period, the Royals could do no right.  It was almost like they were TRYING to run their fans away.  Permanently.  Despite this, I've always remained ...
