Another Name for the Royals to Float

Things haven’t gone very well for the Royals this season. On that matter, we can all agree, right? Injuries have been a major problem, and injuries aren’t always “fair,” but what happens happens, and with the deadline coming up, the Royals aren’t in a great position. They’re eight and a half games out of first in their division, with three teams in front, and they’re...

How Long Will The Royals Let Their Rotation Hold them Back?

Things are not looking good for the Kansas City Royals’ chances of repeating as pennant winners. In fact, at this juncture, they only have a 2.6 percent chance of making the playoffs at all according to Fangraphs. Part of the reason for the uninspiring 2016 has been the performance of the starting rotation. Royals’ fans have grown used to having a mediocre (at best) rotation...

It’s Time to Reward Danny Duffy

Where would the Royals be without Danny Duffy? I imagine they’d be farther out of first place than they are right now and not hovering around .500. Rather, they’d probably be in the midst of their worst season since 2012 without any hope for the postseason. You may think they don’t have much hope as is, but it would be even more difficult to envision if Duffy wasn’t around...

The Developing Ace of the Royals

Let’s make one thing absolutely clear: The Royals don’t have an ace, not by major-league standards. By whichever measure you pick, the Royals have had one of the worst starting rotations in the game, and the closest thing they have to an ace starter is probably their group of pitchers who aren’t starters at all. Each and every game is almost like a race to the bullpen, and...
