Let’s Calm Down About Danny Duffy For Right Now

Kansas City Royals starting pitcher Danny Duffy had a decent enough April to where there wasn’t a ton of concern about his start to the season.  He wasn’t great but he wasn’t a disaster.  As I recently wrote, he certainly wasn’t the biggest cause for concern in the Royals starting rotation.  Since the calendar turned […]

The Trials Of Danny Duffy: Can Royals’ Starter Be Fixed?

Hard to believe, but tonight’s game will mark the quarter-point of the season. Forty games in, we can start to make some judgments about this Royals team.  The defense appears to be excellent again, the offense is better than expected, I think the bullpen is even better than expected (which is impressive, given the lofty […]

Offense Falls Silent as Royals Drop Game Two

“It could have been a lot worse.” -A tragic tale of Danny Duffy’s 2015 season.   After scoring twelve runs in yesterday’s match, Kansas City backed Danny Duffy up with only one run of support. One run of support is hard to work with for any pitcher, but as rough of a start to the season that he’s had, you can almost guarantee that one run wouldn’t cut it. In...

The story behind the 8-1 loss

Monday morning at 5:45 am the Kansas City Royals finally got to their hotel rooms in Arlington.  After a 100 minute plus rain delay in Detroit followed by two 30+ pitch innings the night before, it is safe to say the boys in blue were not exactly in tip-top shape for the game that started nearly just a few hours later.  Coach Ned Yost told reporters that he got to bed at 7...

Tribe Rolls as Bats Drub Duffy Early; Indians 10, Royals 3

Did the Tribe Win Last Night? Yes! Carlos Carrasco received some of that elusive run support that has haunted the Indians for the past two seasons as Cleveland defeated a left-handed starter in a 10-3 final over the Kansas City Royals from Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday night. The Indians paced Carrasco with four early runs, which would prove to be all the reliable righty would need...

Kansas City Royals: The importance of Danny Duffy

Royals and starting pitcher Danny Duffy agree to a 1-year deal ( The Kansas City Royals made the playoffs last year for the first time since the 1985 season and much of that success can be contributed to their strong bullpen as well as the pitching staff in general. Arguably, there is no one more important to the Royal’s rotation than left-handed starter Danny Duffy...

Duffy getting used to working with limited run support

Danny Duffy watched as Kansas City's offense was shut down in the series opener with Minnesota, something he's also grown accustomed to witnessing during his starts. The left-hander hopes that's not the case Wednesday night against the visiting Twins as he looks to help the Royals avoid a third straight defeat. Duffy (5-10, 2.47 ERA) is the only pitcher in baseball with double-digit...

Offense, Umpire Dooms Royals as They Drop Game Two, 2-1

I’m going to keep it short and sweet tonight. Poor Danny Duffy. Danny Duffy made another fabulous start tonight, but it was soiled by the offense yet again. Duffy gave us six innings of quality work as he only gave up one earned run. It was an errant throw by Duffy that gave the Tigers their second run. Nine men left on base tonight. Nine. That’s absolutely pathetic. That’s...

It's 'rebelution' time: Royals' Duffy is too darn blessed to be stressed

ST. LOUIS -- And I might stress Yes I might stress, too blessed to be stressed Yes, I might stress, too blessed to be stressed Yes, I might stress, too blessed to be stressed ... "R-E-B-E-L-U-T-I-O-N," Royals pitcher Danny Duffy explained, smiling, when asked what was on his ear buds earlier Monday night, before he went all Chuck Norris on the St. Louis Cardinals' starting nine....
