Former Royal Getz says he won't look at time here as 'it didn't work out'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The understandably paltry crowd at cold and rain-soaked Kauffman Stadium on Tuesday night perked up when they heard the name of the Blue Jays' No. 9 hitter being introduced -- Chris Getz, the former Royal. And even on a night when raindrops hitting the batting helmets seemed to be the loudest noise inside the stadium, it wasn't hard to distinguish a slight...

Getz understands Royals fans booing him, but obviously doesnt enjoy it

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Kauffman Stadium is not a place where you typically hear fans boo anyone from the home team. That's partly because of the courteous nature of Kansas Citians, and also because the Royals haven't been significant enough in the minds of fans here for them to care enough to boo. But that has changed recently as the Royals hang on the fringe of the playoff...

Kansas City Royals hold the keys to their own fate.

Chris Getz When watching the Royals play this season, one can say that they are going “all in” in an effort to make their first postseason appearance since 1985. By going out and acquiring veteran infielders Jamey Carroll and Emilio Bonafacio, Dayton Moore has attempted to shore up the glaring hole at second base (sorry Chris Getz, but your lack of defensive skills is alarming...

Chris Getz's at-bat tune: 'RBI Baseball' theme

If you take a look at the Kansas City Royals website, it lists Chris Getz's walk up music as "Let's Groove" by Earth, Wind and Fire.  A pretty solid choice if you ask me.  But if you go to a Royals game...well, you're greeted with different music when the second baseman saunters up to the dish. That's right, kids...yes, that is the theme music...

Getz continues homerless streak

Just about every change in baseball over the last few decades has been geared toward producing more offense and more home runs. The ballparks get smaller as do the strike zones, it seems. Yet in this age of inflated home run numbers, Royals second baseman Chris Getz is the bizarre anomaly: He has no power. Virtually none. In fact, Getz hasn't hit a home run in almost three...
