Lifeless Royals Lose Again, 2-1 To Red Sox

Here are some tasteful stats that Ryan Landreth has dug up that may give you no hope at all for the Kansas City Royals. “The Royals have outhit their opponent 11 times in their 47 losses, with another 7 times matching their opponent’s hit total. In another 13 games, they’ve had no fewer than two less hits than their opponent did. The Royals have lost 47 times. In just 16 of...

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

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...

Danny Duffy needs to Move to Rotation

by John Viril— Danny Duffy lit up radar guns in an impressive two-inning relief stint against the Astros Wednesday night, helping Kansas City take a 6-4 victory in 11 innings.

He regularly hit 98 on the gun with his fastball, and his curve made...
