Preview: Guthrie seeks victory in career-best fifth straight start

The Royals (60-53) haven't hit the 60-win...

With my Kansas City Baby and a bottle of Kansas City wine

  These Kansas City Royals have turned out to be quite the pesky bunch. How dare they turn the tables on us, taking a 6-3 deficit  and turning it into a 9-6 victory. That’s what we do, not what is done to us. Let’s face it, six runs and eleven hits is generally a win, but Peavy fell apart early and two guys I never heard of (Drake Britton and Pedro Beato) did the rest. The...

This is the dream for small market teams.  For instance: since 1998, when Billy Beane took over as general manager, the Oakland Athletics have been to the playoffs on six separate occasions. They are headed towards a 7th birth under his watch this season...

Royals DFA Brett Hayes

It’s kind of rare that I take to the blog about a player from another team getting DFA.  The Royals have DFA C Brett Hayes.  The Pirates should be interested. Depth at catcher is a problem since Michael McKenry went down.  No one is talking much about it but this team is a Russell Martin…
