ROYALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Is Alex Gordon a legit contender for AL MVP?

Even with his second half scuffles, many have already declared that this is the season that Mike Trout finally wins his long deserved American League Most Valuable Player Award. It’s hard to argue against it, as he continues to produce at an incredible rate in now his third full big league season. However, there are players not to be overlooked in this matter.

Shields Bested by Yanks, Royals Lose 8-1

Kansas City desperately needed someone to step up, and guide their team through a pennant chase. Who better to do so than James Shields? In seven starts prior to the match against the Yankees, Shields is 3-0 with a 2.27 ERA. Three years ago with the Tampa Bay Rays, Shields did the same thing. In July of 2011, Juego posted a 5.40 ERA, and posted a record of 1-4. Things would turn...

What was going on the last time the Royals made the playoffs

The Kansas City Royals are currently in uncharted waters for the franchise…first place. This is a team that has not earned a trip to the playoffs since its miracle run to the World Series back in 1985. To put that into perspective, President Obama was younger the last time Kansas City made the playoffs than Mike Trout is right now. Just think about that for a second.  It’s been...

The simplest way of evaluating that is to ask: what are the odds that a coin flipped thirty times will...

What is Jeremy Guthrie?

Most of you know that I pick baseball games every day. It's part of my shtick. And one thing that happens every fifth day is not knowing what to do with Jeremy Guthrie when his turn comes up. You could say that Guthrie has been successful with the Royals. His record in two and a half years there is 29-25. He takes the ball every fifth day and is durable. But, gosh, he just...
