Christmas came early for the Royals' new toys at the top of the order

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The new toys at the top logged 10 plate appearances, got on base seven times, collected six hits, two runs, a double, and walk. No wonder Eric Hosmer was smiling Friday night like Santa just left a stinking Ferrari under his tree. "That's definitely how they drew it up," the Kansas City Royals' first baseman said of the new No. 1 and No. 2 hitters...

Kansas City Royals: 3 up and 3 down

Kansas City Royals: 3 up and 3 downOne of the biggest surprises of 2013 was how poorly the Kansas City Royals offense performed. Billy Butler had a down year. Mike Moustakas refuses to figure it out at the big league level. Lorenzo Cain finally logged a significant number of at-bats but didn’t live up to the hype. 2nd base was a disaster no matter who they plugged in. There is...

Royals believe Hosmer is just scratching the surface of his talent

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- At one point last summer while on his interim stint as the Royals' hitting coach, George Brett watched Eric Hosmer slash line drive after line drive during batting practice and said, smiling, "That guy has so much talent, it's absolutely unreal." It was no coincidence, though, that it was Brett's emergence as hitting coach in late May that...

Kansas City Royals inspire hope for 2014

If there is any time to jump on the Kansas City Royals bandwagon, the time would be now. They have a winning record heading into the month of September, Dayton Moore wasn’t prompted to fire-sale all of the major pieces of their success, and the Royals are still in the hunt to make the postseason (even though it will be a miracle if they clinch a berth).  The biggest reason to...

Eric Hosmer has reached “stud” status

About six weeks ago, my buddy Cardinals Fan was in KC visiting for a long weekend.  The two of us sat down and talked baseball with our buddy Jayson and the Royals' summer of excitement was the topic of conversation.  At that time, the Royals were fresh off their losing streak heading into the All-Star break that had us all thinking that the Royals season had ended.  Always...

Royals fan makes incredible catch

Today was a good day for Royals fans. Not only did Eric Hosmer deliver what ended up being the game winning homerun in the 9th inning against the Minnesota twins, a Royals fan in the stands flashed his own skills as he tumbled head-over-heels over the seats in an attempt to catch a foul ball. Not only did he make the remarkable catch, he held his glove up to the fans from his back...
