2013 Kansas City Royals: Pessimist Edition

There are a lot of Kansas City Royals fans who are excited for 2013.  The possibility of contending for the division title, a wild card spot, or at least breaking .500 for the first time in 10 seasons has them ready for April 1st.  The man pictured above is not one of them.  There are an equal amount, or more, who are decidedly UN-excited about 2013.  Non-plussed.  Not particularly...

Getz wins Second Base Job

by John Viril— Royals Manager Ned Yost announced today that Chris Getz will open the season at second base ahead of competitor Johnny Giavotella. Given their performances in spring training, this decision was a foregone conclusion.

Royals Roster Breeds Little Suspense

It’s a so far, so good Spring Training for the Kansas City Royals. As of Wednesday, March 20, the Royals lead the Cactus League with a 18-6 record. There’s no major injuries. Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer are playing well. The team hasn’t done anything that makes you scratch your head, at least not yet. They even made a good decision moving Hochevar to the bullpen. In other...

Travis d’Arnaud, Sal Perez and the International Draft

by John Viril— Baseball personnel evaluators generally recognize Travis d’Arnaud as the top catching prospect in baseball. He’s a former first round draft pick, he has been named to four consecutive top 100 prospect lists by Baseball America and he was the centerpiece for this winter’s trade that moved 2012 National League Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey from the Mets to Toronto...

30-1 MLB countdown previews: #9 Royals

The Kansas City Royals have not been to the playoffs since 1985. They have had all losing seasons since 1995 except one (2003 under Tony Pena: 83-79). The organization has had some terrible drafts and not caught a lot of breaks since the early 1990s. However, General Manager Dayton Moore had built a strong farm system bringing prospects like Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon...

Time for an Endy Reunion?

News broke yesterday that Endy Chavez was released by the Kansas City Royals, and it made me wonder if the Mets might consider adding him to the mix. It kind of goes against everything this team represents. We are in a youth movement right now. Although Chavez holds a special place in our hearts for one of the best catches we’ve ever seen a Met make, I think it’s just not the...

The Royals Need a Superstar

by John Viril— Royals General Manager Dayton Moore has carefully rebuilt the franchise over the last seven seasons.  He turned a woeful minor league system into one of the best in baseball. He took over an aging roster and turned it into a young and promising one. When he recognized his talent pipeline wasn’t giving him starting pitching, he traded 2012 Minor League Player of...
