AARON CROW RUMORS & GOSSIP

Bullpen arms can't throw a strike, spit up the lead in distasteful 4-3 loss

I won't say this is how bad teams throw away games, but this certainly is how struggling teams give away games. After a rare and remarkable three-run rally from the Royals' pitiful offense gave them a 3-2 lead in the eighth ining, the Royals' struggling bullpen immediately coughed up the lead. And what has to be frustrating for manager Ned Yost and pitching coach Dave...

Royals' Crow might have lost his setup role but says he still will contribute

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- While there won't be many roster spots up for grabs for the Royals this spring training, there will be some sorting out in terms of a few players' roles. One of those roles in question will be right-handed reliever Aaron Crow's. For over two seasons, Crow has been one of, if not the, primary setup men for manager Ned Yost. Crow suddenly lost that distinction...

Flanny's Five: Each night something new dooms the Royals

EATING CROW And so it goes when a team is cemented in a funk: Instead of a new hero each night who secures a victory, there is virtually a new culprit instead who contributes heavily toward a defeat. Wednesday night it was right-hander Aaron Crow, who entered the eighth inning with a somewhat comfortable 3-1 against St. Louis. But Crow spit back the lead quickly and thoroughly...

Is Aaron Crow a Bust?

You may remember Aaron Crow's amateur career.  Stud starting pitcher at the University of Missouri.  He was a high first round draft pick for the Washington Nationals in 2008 (9th pick) but they were unable to sign him and he went back into the draft in 2009.  The Kansas City Royals grabbed him with the 12th pick of the 2009 draft.  Immediately the projections began that...

MLB: Who Aaron Crow is and how the Royals are Wasting Him

 It’s 7 p.m. in the banquet room of a Hampton Inn on the University of Missouri campus in February, and a few hundred people are scarfing down BBQ wings and waiting for Royals All-Star reliever Aaron Crow to speak. One of the best pitchers the Mizzou baseball program ever had, Crow was drafted twice in the first round before eventually signing with the Royals in 2009 and shooting...

Is Starting Aaron Crow a Good Idea?

As Jack Moore covered earlier, the Royals today acquired the services of Jon “The Ox” Broxton. Purportedly, the idea was that adding a reliever was less expensive than finding a starter — which is true — and that they already had a pitcher in the pen that could move to the starting rotation next year — which is more debatable. The thing is, they might actually have a pitcher...
