The farm system sent a treasure trove of talent Kansas City’s way in 2011, but that meant that the number one ranking from Baseball...
Last week, the Kansas City Royals announced their schedule of promotions and giveaways for 2012. Items like a George Brett Mini Pine Tar Bat, a Royals All-Star Garden Gnome and a Buck O’Neil bobblehead are fantastic giveaways. What Royals fan doesn’t want a Royals Garden Gnome?
However, I can’t help but think the Royals are missing out on some great promotions for their long...
While most of LoMo’s video spots on the MLB Network generally have been pretty stupid, this one is actually pretty funny. Plus, he incorporates Eric Hosmer into his act to pull off the Step Brothers-like dual interview.

Francis, 31, went 6-16 with a 4.82 ERA in 183 innings during 31 starts for the Royals last season. Although he gave up 224 hits, he allowed just...

The Reds addressed their need for starting pitching depth tonight, as John Hayman reports that the Reds have signed starting pitcher Jeff Francis to a minor league deal. Zack Links at MLBTR provides some basic info about Francis’ 2011 season.

Sports Illustrated's Joe Posnanski is in a tough spot. He's a gifted writer and by all appearances a decent guy. His decency is his defining characteristic; he grew up rooting for doomed Cleveland teams and covered the worthless Kansas City Royals, but he never gave in to the urge to be a hatchet man. If Posnanski sometimes scores his work...
