So You’re Telling Me There’s a Chance

The Royals have made it to the All-Star break with a 48-46 record, six and a half games back of the AL Central leading Detroit Tigers. While it is easy to criticize several areas of this organization and team, the Royals are still very much in play of a wild card spot, trailing Seattle by two and a half. Kansas City survived the torrid opening to the season by the Tigers, actually held a division lead after ...

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 ...

Royals Have Plenty To Sort Out In Second Half

I guess if you want to look at the bright side, that 3-8 road trip the Royals made us suffer through before the All-Star Break was good for one thing. It removed (or should have, anyway) any temptation for the Royals to make some desperate trade to boost their slim chances of winning the division. Yes, flags fly forever, but even if this Royals team had somehow made the playoffs, they likely would have been ...

Plenty of Positives As Naturals Pound SpringBirds

SPRINGDALE, Mo. -- On a very warm day with a stiff wind blowing out towards center, the pitchers certainly had their hands full in Wednesday’s Double-A Texas League showdown between the Springfield Cardinals and Northwest Arkansas Naturals at Arvest Ballpark. The Naturals, however, won not only what felt like a home run derby of sorts, but the game as well, 10-6. Kansas City Royals right hander Felipe Pau ...

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.

Friday Notes

Baseball is back and the Royals won yesterday. Okay, they also lost. And yes, I'm pretty sure I make that joke every season, but I don't care because baseball is back. The outcome of yesterday's game doesn't ultimately matter, but the reports out of camp are that the pitching staff looked good, which is of course the biggest question the Royals have coming out of spring training. The good news is that there ...
