Alex Gordon, Jason Vargas, Mike Moustakas help Royals blank Twins

These were the Royals of the preseason promise. Stellar pitching, outstanding defense and hitting that was timely and powerful added up to a 5-0 Royals victory over the Twins that worked on every level. Start with pitcher Jason Vargas, who delivered yet another solid outing. He hadn’t surrendered more than two runs in any of his previous three starts and was better on Friday...

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. "...

Homer by Moustakas lifts Royals over Astros 6-4

HOUSTON -- Mike Moustakas homered in the 11th inning to lift the Kansas City Royals to a 6-4 win over the Houston Astros on Wednesday night. Moustakas has been off to a tough start this season and was hitting .098 before his solo shot to the seats in right field off Jerome Williams (0-1) to lead off the 11th. A small group of Royals fans stood and yelled 'Moooooose' as he...

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...

Defensive 'shift' on Royals' Moose designed to mess with his head

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The most surprised man in Detroit last week when the Tigers employed the "pull" shift -- three defenders to the right of second base -- on Mike Moustakas was, well, Moustakas himself. While flattered, to be sure, Moustakas wasn't exactly certain he merited such strategical attention, certainly not this early in his career. And certainly not coming...

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...

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...

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...
