Royals' Yost still has faith in the struggling Tim Collins

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hmmm. Would have been interesting if left-hander Tim Collins hadn't coughed up three more runs in the ninth (his ERA is now an unsightly 36.00) on Sunday. If Collins had done his job, the Royals could have sent this one in extra innings after rallying for a run in the bottom of the ninth. Instead the Royals fell 5-1, and now have dropped back under .500 at...

Royals Fans, We’ve Been Here Before

An opening day highly disappointing loss, aren't we used to this yet?  Every year we as Kansas City Royals fans get all worked up thinking this year is going to be different, the Royals are going to be different, luck will turn our teams way.  Not only do we expect all of that to happen as fans but it seems we expect it to happen right away.  Is it 2003's fault?  We do...

Ned Yost plays with fire (poll)

by JohnViril— Ok. I can’t stand it anymore. The way Ned Yost handles pitchers drives me nuts. I know this is probably the most common fan complaint in all of baseball. But, Yost seems almost mechanically devoted to the 100 pitch limit.  Come hell or high water, Yost expects his starter to deliver at least 100 pitches, no matter what the game situation. Last night, starter Bruce...

Is Ned Yost Giving the Royals the Best Chance to Win?

There is something strange going on inside of Kauffman Stadium. The Royals haven’t played great baseball this year and the biggest concern coming into the season was starting pitching. Yet surprisingly, the Royals have been saved by their pitching staff recently and doomed by their lack of offense. I am an avid listener of some local sports radio stations and I constantly hear...
