Looking Back, Looking Forward

The first thing I noticed was a lot of blue. Powder blue, royal blue. A lot of blue. Jerseys, caps, shirts. Kansas City had turned out for their team and a large group had shown up to watch at Kelly's Westport Inn.Every TV was showing the FSKC pregame show except for one, which was tuned to the Twins/Tigers game. A small group was around that TV watching before the Royals game...

Flanny's Five: At this point, all Royals GM Dayton Moore can do is watch

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This was the vision Dayton Moore had eight years ago when he accepted the offer from Royals owner David Glass to become the team's general manager: The Royals battling for a division crown in late September in front of a packed Kauffman Stadium.

Gross Negligence

Credit: Rick Osentoski We may have just reached critical mass on the Fire Ned Yost movement!   Evidence #1: Clinging to the slimest of leads in the 6th inning today, Ned could not deviate from his normal protocol to adapt to a situation.  With runners at 2nd and 3rd and 1 out Ned desperately needed a strikeout.  And coming up was a strikeout candidate Yoenis Cespedes.  Since...

Greg Holland notches league high 38th save

Getty Images The Kansas City Royals did not expect close Greg Holland to pitch Monday night as they entered the ninth inning with a five run lead over the Minnesota Twins. That all changed though when Aaron Crow surrendered a three run home run to Trevor Plouffe. Holland then was inserted into the game. Holland made quick work of Chris Parmelee on a ground out and Kurt Suzuki via...

Royals Drop Game Two 4-1

There aren’t too many games that have warranted the use of the phrase, “Yosted” as of late. This would be one of those games. After six innings, Yordano Ventura’s pitch count was nearing 100, but he was showing no signs of tiring. In fact, Ventura seemed to be improving as the game went on, so naturally Yost decided to bring him out for one more inning. It wasn’t a horrible...

5th Inning Dooms Royals, Lose 8-3

Back-to-back games when the Royals scored one run in very important games. The difference? Yesterday’s game was a shutout, and a shutout is a win 100% of the time. The A’s scored eight runs today, so you can’t tell me that they missed Cespedes…. For today at least. Today, they had no trouble scoring runs against a troubled Royals defense. At the beginning of the fifth inning...

Tigers smack sinking Royals again, 5-1

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- What was supposed to be a big statement series for the Royals going into the All-Star break has turned out to be more of a concession -- the Royals simply are no match for the Detroit Tigers at this moment.

Royals Take Game 2, 8-4 Over Yanks

  I was going to write something along the lines of “The Royals Upend Yanks to Take Game 2, 8-3.” Since Michael Mariott is pretty much a AAAA pitcher, I was not able to do that.   Danny Duffy was solid through 5.2 innings. It was the 6th inning that really gave him fits. It was not until there were two outs in the 5th until Duffy allowed a runner past first. However, with two...

Ned’s Strategy Works as Bullpen Shines in 7-4 win over Angels

The argument is still out there on whether Ned Yost’s strategy of saving closer Greg Holland until his...
