With these moves, the final shape of the 25-man roster becomes almost entirely resolved.

Royals Experiment with Hosmer in RF

by John Viril— Today the Royals tinkered with 1B Eric Hosmer in right field. While many might dismiss this as an insignificant spring training experiment, I see it as a clue to the club’s thinking heading into the regular season. In short, the brain trust is more concerned than they are letting on about Jeff Francoeur repeating last season’s dismal performance. Throughout his...

Royals take safe route in Getz over Giavotella

KANSAS CITY, Mo. You could almost hear the moans from Royals fans across the area when manager Ned Yost announced that Chris Getz had indeed beat out Johnny Giavotella for the second-base job. Many fans have been pulling for Johnny G to win the job for close to two years. But as was the case last year, Getz held off the challenger again in spring training. Getzs numbers clearly...

The Royals Mascot is Clearly Not Safe for Work

So...you wanna be a mascot? Apparently Sluggerrr, the Kansas City Royals' mascot, took part in some off-the-field activities a while back and, well, I'm not sure what the full story is...but, according to Deadspin, this is what we know. Tipster sends tweet to Deadspin with a NSFW picture of Sluggerrr getting a lap dance. Another guys sees that picture...

Knowing the competition – Kansas City Royals

Butler has a .348 average in the new Yankee Stadium.   Threat Level: 7 Kansas City’s offseason made some headlines and turned some heads. They traded away top prospect Wil Meyers and three other prospects for James Shield and Wade Davis. These moves are clearly indicative of a “win now” philosophy, but make no mistake, this team does have young talent for years to come. Their...

Are the Royals For Real This Year?

I believe the Royals will do well this year. I know, there’s been a few years when it seemed the Royals would do well and they fell flat (like 2004, 2009 and 2012). If there’s any team out there who crushes fan’s expectations and pulls the rug out from underneath their fans, it’s the Kansas City Royals. But 2013 isn’t like the hopeful mirage of the 2012 season. Yes, there...

Anatomy of a Lame Spring Training Position Battle Story

Would it be too hack-tastic to use the experience of the spring season as a figure for the annual rebirth of baseball in Spring Training? Yes. So I won’t. Indeed, I suspect at this point Spring Training feels for others like it does for me: not an exciting time of newness, but as a never-ending sea of pointlessness that makes one ashamed for ever having enjoyed it at all. (I would...

The Best Rotation Since…

I know I have been absent for a while, and you all know that I am prone to hyperbole, but the Royals recent revelation the Luis Mendoza has won the job of fifth starter has brought me out of the shadows…and my hyperbole with it. A month ago everyone considered it a lock that Luke Hochevar would win the fifth spot…and they sent him to the bullpen. A week ago we speculated that...
