Going into 2011, Eric Hosmer was atop the prospect list for the Kansas City Royals. But, after 2 years of not to exciting results, his prospect shine was starting to fade. Then came 2013, when Hosmer finally broke out and became the player the Royals thought he would be. After a banner year, one would think the Royals will try to lock him up, and keep him in Kansas City for a long...
Kansas City Royals legend George Brett went on a profanity-laced tirade on a fan at the Kansas City International Airport while the fan recorded it from his smart phone. According to Brett, this wasn’t your ordinary fan, but a stalker, who he had many past run-ins with and the man continues to demand autographs to sell. Although the Hall of Famer gave the man his autograph,...
Kansas City Royals legend George Brett is happy to sign autographs to adoring fans, just not the guy in the video below. Before we get into particulars of the incident, see for yourself what happened: Via KCTV “If I ever…Read more →
For a player whose spent the majority of his career as the archetype for the three true outcomes hitter, Carlos Pena is anything but a guarantee to receive a major league contract this offseason.
Following a dismal season where he struggled to a .207/.321/.346 batting line, serving primarily as the first baseman for the Houston Astros before being unceremoniously discarded and picked...
Ervin Santana is reportedly seeking a $100 million dollar contract when he signs his next deal, likely using that number as an opening to negotiation and trying to capitalize after a revival 2013 campaign with the Kansas City Royals.
Of course, in order to capitalize on a major contract, it takes one team to actually make an offer and it’s unlikely any of the 30 Major League teams...
George Brett is a bad dude. The Hall of Famer and former Kansas City Royals third baseman was getting hounded by an autograph seeker at Kansas City International Airport. After giving the fan the autograph, Brett said that if he ever saw the fan again (who had asked Brett for his autograph 35 times and received it 15 times), he would shoot him.
I understand Brett's frustration...
Free agent Carlos Pena is not planning to retire.
Pena, 35, spent time with Houston and Kansas City during the 2013 season hitting a mere .207/.321/.346 last season with eight home runs and 25 RBI in 89 games.
Carlos Pena, 35, who had a bit of a rough year in Houston and KC, is not planning on retiring. Would like another shot.

I don’t know why Brett was so mad?
Normally, old retire players like when people still remember them and I can’t imagine there are too many people harassing celebrities at the Kansas City airport.
But, while signing an autograph this happened.
The Royals released a statement say Brett regrets his actions and was just tired from his flight.
Besides asking to borrow a pair of slacks from George Brett, you should also probably avoid requesting an autograph from the Kansas City Royals legend. Brett had just landed in Kansas City and overzealous autograph hound Brandon Farrens pestered Brett. The Royals legend had enough and not only declined to give his signature, but also threatened to shoot the autograph seeker. I think...
“What are headlines that made me laugh? For $500, Alex.” Yes, you read that headline correctly. Ervin Santana, whom I realize many of you have never heard of, is seeking a five-year, $100 million contract in free agency, according to FOX MLB reporter Ken Rosenthal. Santana, who turns 31 in December, is coming off perhaps […]
Ervin Santana sure has that timing thing figured out. The 31-year-old turned in arguably the best season of his career last season with the Kansas City Royals, and he’s now poised to cash in on the free-agent market. According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, Santana is seeking a deal north of $100 million over five years.
Basic math tells you that this sort of contract would make...
Ervin Santana and his representatives are obviously trying to capitalize on the fact that the free-agent market is pretty bare when it comes to quality starting pitching, but come on.
According to a report via Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports, Santana is looking to secure a lucrative deal following a very productive season for the Kansas City Royals.
Free-agent right-hander Ervin...
