Ryan Raburn spikes throw, allows ‘inside-the-park HR’

In a 0-0 game in the bottom of the 8th inning, Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas hit a lazy fly ball down the left-field line. Raburn slid for it, but the ball bounced off his glove and rolled over to the wall. Moustakas seemed content jogging into second for a stand-up double until Raburn tried to throw the ball, as if he wasn’t bad enough with his glove. It turned...

Mike Moustakas Rounds the Bases on Little League Blunder by Ryan Raburn

The Royals were dominated by Corey Kluber on Thursday night, but somehow managed to record one run on this pathetically odd play by Indians outfielder Ryan Raburn.

Royals slide into 2-1 victory over White Sox

The throw from center field was true, and Mike Moustakas understood he would require good fortune to snap a ninth-inning deadlock. Major-league baseball outlawed home-plate collisions this last offseason, so Moustakas said he chose the next best option, “trying to slide in hard” toward Chicago White Sox catcher Tyler Flowers. Flowers wrapped his glove around the baseball and...

Mike Moustakas homers twice as Royals snap skid with 7-1 win over White Sox

Dayton Moore tapped his hand against the back of a bench. Seated next to him, Ned Yost kicked his foot up against a nearby railing. Together they sat inside the visitors’ dugout Tuesday at U.S. Cellular Field and watched the latest edition of the Royals take batting practice. Moore built this roster. Yost guides it. Shortly before Moore flew into Chicago to visit his free-falling...

The Future For Mike Moustakas

The trigger has finally been pulled, Moose has finally been optioned to Triple-A Omaha. He hit .152 before Thursdays’ demotion (19 for 125) in 40 games. Mike was tied for team high in homeruns with four, and has also driven in 17. The average was the main factor in the demotion decision. During this time, look for Danny Valencia to get the majority of starts at third base. Normally...

Royals Can’t Keep Carrying Mike Moustakas

Kansas City Royals third baseman Mike Moustaskas is hitting only .147 and there is no relief in sight.  Moustakas is like a drunk who has yet to bottom out and until the Royals create a bottom for Moustakas, he will continue to stagger around at the plate. What would be wrong with sending the beleaguered third baseman down to the minors for a few weeks to get his head together?...
