Mike Moustakas Breaks out of Slump

by John Viril— Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas has hit for extra bases three games in row, including home runs in consecutive days. Moustakas has hit .307/.307/.846 with 4 RBI’s over his last 3 games. It might not sound like much, but for Moustakas, it counts as a deluge of success in a season that saw him start the year 0-25. For the season, Mike Moustakas is still only...

Don't look now, but it's Moose who is coming through in the clutch

For a guy hitting just .138 overall, Mike Moustakas sure has played a huge role in three wins over the past week. Moose's homer in the 11th inning last week against Houston beat the Astros, his two-run bomb sealed a win against Minnesota on Friday, and his blast against Cleveland on Tuesday night got the Royals' offense going. And to be fair, Moustakas has looked far better...

The Royals finally flex their muscles in 8-2 romp over Tribe

The Royals brought out their version of the long ball Tuesday night in Cleveland -- four doubles, and a home run. Hey, not the '27 Yankees, we know. But for a team as power-challenged as the Royals, they'll take it. The big blow was Mike Moustakas' three-run jolt into the right-field seats that put the Royals up 3-1. And the Royals rolled from there, 8-2, to climb back...

Struggling Career Comparison: 2014 Mike Moustakas v. 2011 Alex Gordon

A lot of people are freaking out that Mike Moustakas is a bust.  Like, a COLOSSAL bust.  Many are saying that he needs to be cut loose from the Royals if he isn't producing by June 1, 2014. His batting average is atrocious.  He puts too much pressure on himself.  He looks lost at the plate.  He needs to go to AAA Omaha to regain his confidence and also learn that he has...

Patience, Royals fans: There are signs that Moose is coming around

So far during this young season, the Royals have been searching for someone to come through with the clutch, game-deciding hit. And perhaps the least likely of their sources -- Mike Moustakas -- came through Wednesday night. Moustakas' home run to right field in the 11th inning catapulted the Royals to a 6-4 win and, at least for now, rescued an otherwise dismal road trip. "...

Kansas City Royals Must Quit the Moose Excuse

Photo Credit: Keith Allison       The numbers are atrocious. The numbers are abysmal. The numbers are alarming. Most of all, the numbers are empirical. They do not lie. They are not mistakes. The numbers I’m speaking of are those that belong to Mike Moustakas. Though these numbers are far from complete, they represent the starting point on a chart which is projecting to only...

Can Mike Moustakas carry a strong Spring over to a breakout 2014 season?

Kansas City Royals 3B Mike Moustakas finished the Spring near the top of the leaderboard in terms of batting average, finishing 3rd with a .426 mark. Those Spring numbers don't mean much heading into the season, but nevertheless, March was a good month for Moose, as he tore apart Cactus League pitching with that .426 average and 23 hits in 54 at bats including 10 of them for...
