Royals accept Reality, Move Hochevar to Pen

by John Viril— This morning, Royals manager Ned Yost announced that Luke Hochevar was no longer part of the competition for no. 5 starter and will be moved to the pen. At long last, the team has accepted that former no. 1 overall pick Hochevar is not a starter in major league baseball. Finally, they have accepted reality. This small dose of common sense bodes well for the success...

Royals P Jeremy Guthrie has a 'shoe-seum'

I have a love-hate relationship with shows like "Cribs" or even "The Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous"...I can't help it.  Long ago, I figured out that I probably won't ever have a gold elevator in my kitchen or own my own personal island and you know what?  I'm fine with that.  That said, why do I kill myself watching shows where people do?...

Royals rumors: High asking price for Luke Hochevar

The Kansas City Royals announced yesterday that right-hander Luke Hochevar will begin the season pitching out of the bullpen, but the team continues to require “quite a bit in return” when teams have asked about the former top prospect, according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports. Interesting (and surprising) on Hochevar: Teams that asked about trading for him were told Royals...

The Royals Send Luke Hochevar To The Bullpen

It’s been a bumpy and inconsistent ride for Luke Hochevar, the former 2006 No. 1 overall draft pick. Except for a few bullpen outings early in his career, Hochevar was a starter for the Royals since 2008. With the team’s upgrades to the starting rotation, Hochevar, Bruce Chen and Luis Mendoza were in competition for the fifth starting spot. But after two spring starts, the Royals...

2013 burning question: Kansas City Royals

Continuing from this morning's preview of the Kansas City Royals... Are the Royals' upgrades in the rotation enough for them to compete with the Tigers and White Sox at the top of the AL Central? This is probably the most important question regarding the Royals going into 2013. The team completely retooled their rotation this offseason, adding James Shields, Wade...

You may say I'm a dreamer: Kansas City Royals

What else can baseball fans do in January but dream of October? In You May Say I'm a Dreamer, the Outside Corner staff will imagine the route to a World Series in 2013 title for all 30 teams. After an offseason where Dayton Moore went all-in, the Royals made their general manager look like a genius by winning the World Series. Kansas City's first title in 28 years was...

Dugout Digest - happy Royals day!

AL Central week (also known as "the most depressing preview week in baseball"), rolls along today with the Kansas City Royals, who finished in third in 2012 despite losing 90 games. Of course, that didn't stop the Royals from thinking they were a starting pitcher or three away from contending in 2013, which led them to acquire James Shields and Wade Davis from the Rays...

This is my nightmare: Kansas City Royals

In the This Is My Nightmare series, we'll take a look at what the absolute worst case scenario for each team would be in 2013. Think of it as the negative complement to our You May Say I'm A Dreamer series that we'll be running during our preview series. After the splash Dayton Moore made this winter in trading Wil Myers and Jake Odorizzi for James Shields and Wade...

Royals 4, Mariners 2

Ervin Santana struck out seven in four innings, Billy Butler and Salvador Perez hit run-singles and the Kansas City Royals beat the Seattle Mariners 4-2 Wednesday to improve their spring training record to 14-2. Santana, acquired from the Los Angeles Angels during the offseason, allowed his only run on Carlos Truinfel's third-inning homer. Santana gave up two hits and threw...

Does a Winning Spring mean Anything?

by John Viril— Through seventeen spring training games, the Kansas City Royals have complied an outrageous .852 winning percentage (14-2-1). To put that in perspective, this is a mere .023 off the pace of the best all-time regular season start of the 1984 Detroit Tigers (35-5, .875). Conventional wisdom suggests “it’s only spring training” and it’s about as meaningful as...
