2013: The Royals time to go after starting pitching

With the 2012 season winding down, The Kansas City Royals are in familiar territory, finishing below .500 and looking forward to 2013. The Royals lineup is solid, the bullpen is good, but the starting pitching is hideous. Despite what some fans might think, the Royals know they need to improve their starting rotation. A September 24 article in the Kansas City Star says Royals owner...

Hosmer hopes shoulder injury isn't a season-ender

Kansas City Royals first baseman Eric Hosmer's season certainly has not gone the way he had hoped or wanted. It might have ended Thursday when he bruised and strained his right shoulder in the second inning while diving for Quintin Berry's two-run triple into the right field corner at Detroit in a game the Royals lost 5-4 to the Tigers. Hosmer was replaced by reserve...

Royals seem determined not to improve

by John Viril— The Kansas City Royals lost tonight for the 6th straight game, one game short of equaling last season’s 71 win mark. Six games ago, with 11 games remaining in the season, the Royals appeared poised to put up at least a decent improvement on last year’s win total. Now, I am beginning to wonder if they will even manage to win that one game. I suppose I am being...

Cruel and Unusual

by John Viril— What in the heck was manager Ned Yost doing yesterday? The Royals continued their stumble-to-the finish Sunday, getting bombed 15-3 by the Cleveland Indians. This loss makes the Royals 1-7 over their last 8 games. But, more importantly, Yost left Luke Hochevar out to dry in the 5th inning yesterday, allowing the maligned right-hander to give up 8 runs in a single...

Moustakas Out Of Beta

Mike Moustakas left yesterday’s game with a groin injury that could end his season, which would also end his sophomore slump (the “o” is silent in sophomore, like when you make love to your woman — oofa!)  The 2nd season like the 2nd Greek letter is beta.  Beta is also a testing phase when the most kinks are found.  So, naturally, we should expect guys in beta to perform...

Smith, Royals lose to Indians

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Sandy Alomar Jr. won his first game as Indians manager as Jason Kipnis drove in three runs and Cleveland beat Kansas City 8-5 on Friday night, handing the Royals their sixth straight loss. Alomar, one of the most popular players in franchise history, went from bench coach to interim manager when Manny Acta was fired Thursday. David Huff (3-0) gave up three runs...

American League Central Injury News: Rick Porcello, Eric Hosmer, John Danks, Josh Willingham
