Our Palehose were unable to complete a series sweep this afternoon, falling to the Royals 3-1 in a game where all of both team’s runs crossed the plate in the fifth inning.
While the White Sox were able to defeat KC the first two games, this one looked all too familiar to the ones against the Royals last season, starting with the man on the mound ...
Forget “Cy” Chen, Jeremy Guthrie is the new KC Royal that our White Sox make look like Cy Young. With his six innings of one-run ball and nine strikeouts today, here are Guthrie’s stats against the Sox since joining the Royals in the middle of last season: 35.2 innings pitched in five starts, two earned runs, 2-0.
Again, that’s TWO earned runs in 35+ innings. That’s pretty mind-boggling when you look at the fact that Guthrie is 56-77 lifetime with an ERA well above four. Maybe the Royals coaching staff has tweaked things with Guthrie to get the most out of him. Maybe Guthrie just has a good game pla...

Royals First Base Coach Rusty Kuntz’s name is the gift that keeps on giving. It's good to know that our middle school humor is still in tact.
by John Viril—While watching Kansas City roar back from an early 4-0 deficit against the Philadelphia Phillies in the 13-4 win on Friday, it occurred to me that the Royals roster is very well constructed for National League play,

Alex Gordon nearly had the catch of the year after climbing the wall in an attempt to rob Dayan Viciedo of a home run Wednesday.
Viciedo was up with a runner on first, two outs, and his Chicago White Sox up 2-1 in the fourth when he belted a tailing fastball to left. Gordon was already playing deep and decided to climb the wall. He hopped on...
Alex Gordon and Chris Getz each hit bases-loaded triples and the Kansas City Royals rallied to beat Philadelphia 13-4 Friday, spoiling the Phillies' home opener.
The interleague matchup was a rare one between teams that first met in the 1980 World Series - the Royals' only other visit to Philadelphia came in 2004.

CHICAGO (AP) Adam Dunn homered and the Chicago White Sox went deep four times to back a solid start by Jake Peavy in a 5-2 victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday.
Tyler Flowers, Dayan Viciedo and Alexi Ramirez also connected, and the White Sox made it two straight wins to start the season after dropping 12 of 18 to Kansas City a year ago.
The Royals, full of optimism...

It’s only two games. It’s early in the season. It’s Chicago cold and damp compared to the hot, dry air of Arizona. Yes, there’s reasons to not worry about the Royals 0-2 start. But It’s the way they’ve lost those two games which cause concern, even this early in the season.
Opening Day in Chicago. James Shields pitched well, striking out six and giving up eight hits...
