A patient Moose is a better Moose -- by far

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- All you had to do was observe the game Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas had Wednesday night to recognize why the team's front office is so reluctant to give up on him. Moustakas was the Royals' entire offense essentially, blasting a two-run homer in the second inning, and then a clutch two-out RBI hit in the fourth to give the Royals a 3-2 lead. But the play...

Mike Moustakas’ Woes Continue in Omaha

Professional athletes are often scrutinized for any sort of event in their life, especially negative.  Mike Moustakas has been the talk of late as his performance at the major league level has earned him a demotion. Unfortunately, Moustakas has been the center of attention in the Royals’ clubhouse of late, and no signs of improvement from him have happened thus far. Although he...

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...

Mike Moustakas on the decline?

The Kansas City Royals have a lot of young talent not only on their Major League roster, but also in their farm system. One of their top prospects from 2009 on is was Mike Moustakas. He made his Major League Debut on June 10 in 2011 against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Mike has been at the hot corner for the Royals ever since. Unfortunately, to say he is playing well and improving...

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 extra...

Moose's crazy spring numbers aren't real, but there's a good chance this time HE is

Here we go again. Yep, that's Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas tearing up the Cactus League again, the same way he punished pitchers in Arizona last March. Through 12 games this spring, Moustakas is hitting .500 with a ridiculous 1.595 OPS. He leads the team with four homers and 14 RBI. Of course, Royals fans are familiar with those gaudy numbers. Last year, Moustakas hit .394...

Mike Moustakas is Showing Early Signs of Real Improvement

Reports of Mike Moustakas being in the best shape of his career started weeks ago. Newspaper reports and tweets were all confirming the same thing, Moustakas had lost weight and trimmed up. The problem is, the “best shape of his life” is such a regurgitated cliché in Spring Training, most fans roll their eyes at it and move on. Yet, for what it’s worth, tweets like this one...

A trimmed-down Moustakas must show discipline at the baseball plate, too

There are two ways that Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas plans to get better in 2014: Be more aggressive away from the field, as in working out harder, and be more patient on the field, as in working the count. Moustakas already has a head start on the first project. He improved his diet and dropped 10 pounds over the winter and looks noticeably more fit. "I had to get my mind...
