Your browser does not support iframes. Before anyone really realized it, the Kansas City Royals had a runner on second in the first inning of Game 3 of the World Series.

Alcides Escobar and the Worst At-Bat of the Playoffs

The Giants beat the Royals 7-1 last night, and in any game that lopsided, it’s going to nearly impossible to say that any one play was the cause of the outcome. The Giants just did too many things well, and the Royals too many things poorly, to pin the loss on a single play. But […]

WATCH: Foul ball gets through net, almost drills fan

MLB fans pay top dollar to sit behind home plate and witness the action on the basepaths from the best seats in the house. The unique point-of-view allows them to watch the game from the hitter's perspective, and it comes with the comfort of knowing that the protective screen will usually stop any balls that should come their way. But in Friday's Game 1 of the AL Championship...

Royals Find a Way to Win, Inspite of More Nedulence.

    Ned Yost Dreams   Some how, some way, I sit here this Monday morning reflecting on what transpired this weekend, and still find myself optimistic about the playoffs. The Royals still have a grasp of a wildcard spot as we entire the last week of the season!  In other words with only 7 (and 1/2 inning) games to go, the Royals are in control of their own destiny to PLAYOFF...

Small Ball and Errors Shutdown Royals

Normally I don't like to write a recap of a Royals game as I can be a bit too emotional at times and draw some bad conclusions. With this game being a a late afternoon contest I've had some time to step away and look at the events and draw some more sane ideas.#1 Yost managing for low scoring works and fails - After Eric Hosmer's inexcusable 2 run error in the 2nd the Royals put...

Pair of Royals turn to lady perfume in effort to strikeout uniform stinkiness

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Hey, sometimes a ballplayer just has to smell pretty. Forget the old stereotypes of sweaty old ballplayers stinking up locker rooms and dirty dugouts. Royals catch Sal Perez and Alcides Escobar see no reason why not to add some pleasant odors to the foulness of their work environment. So they wear perfume while they're playing. As in Chanel.

Do you know who saved the Kansas City Royals season?

At the conclusion of the 2013 season, the Kansas City Royals looked at their 86 win season and celebrated it as a "success" because they were comfortably above .500 and legitimately a part of the chase for the Wild Card up until the middle of September.  Many fans were happy to see them get hot and win a lot of games in the 2nd half of the season.  Others lamented the fact that...

Creeper of the Week – I’ll have the Moustakas with a Side of TaBOOli

Even though I'm recommending Mike Moustakas this week, I still can't help but booooo! him. Honestly, all Royals hitters this year, except Alcides Escobar, gets the booooo! treatment from me.

Great Eight: Escobar Leads Streaking Royals into First Place

The Kansas City Royals are in first place in the AL Central. By themselves. In August. Seriously – I checked ESPN. It’s right here, in case you don’t believe me.

Take the fifth -- the one inning Royals fans can't afford to miss

There is something about the fifth inning lately that brings out the best in the Royals, and the worst. We all remember that fateful fifth inning Saturday in Oakland when the Royals' defense imploded while giving up eight runs to the A's in an 8-3 loss. But before that, the Royals last Thursday came up with two keys runs in the fifth inning against Minnesota, forging a tie before...

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...

Royals Come Back, Win 6-3

After standing pat at the trade deadline, Royals fans spent the latter half of today in a bit of a foul mood. A team with a lot of holes, and admittedly so, made absolutely no attempts to make this team better, but still has high hopes of making the playoffs. Sounds crazy, right? That’s because it is. Tonight didn’t get off to a dazzling start, but it finished as one for Yordano...
