More of the Same, A’s Lose Fourth Straight

Another day, another disappointment for the Athletics as the bullpen could not hold a late lead resulting in the first sweep in franchise history at the hands of the Astros. Circus music could accompany the A’s defensive play recently, as the team committed their league-high twentieth error of the season Sunday afternoon along with a handful of other mishaps in an eventual 7-6...

Royals Must Learn to be Better at Playing Bad Guy

  Last nights dustup between the Chicago White Sox and the Kansas City Royals seemed to be just another chapter in the recent saga that has been playing in Kansas City. They have clashed with the Angels and the Athletics previously, most notably Brett Lawrie. Without casting blame or picking sides, one thing is becoming abundantly clear. Teams are taking exception to the...

The Kansas City Royals think it’s a damned fight!!!

By now, you might have heard that the Kansas City Royals are a team that other teams in MLB may dislike a bit.  We’ve heard griping from Brett Lawrie in last weekend’s explosive series with the A’s, and then he continued the griping when the A’s left town and went to Anaheim.  Rumor is (it […]

Royals sending a fighting message early in season

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The Royals earned a reputation for being a scrappy bunch last year, when they stole bases and dazzled on defense and used old-school small ball to reach Game 7 of the World Series. They've taken that intensity up a notch this season. Not everybody appreciates it, either. The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics have already taken umbrage with the way Kansas...

Troll So Hard: Does Brett Lawrie ever shut up?

  It was certainly an interesting weekend at the K. From Billy Butler’s return, to Lawrie slide and his ensuing alleged “apology” to what turned into one of the most eventful and exciting April series that featured a couple bench clearing incidents and six ejections (all Royals), oh and the Royals won the series (2-1). For the Royals (and fans), all of this resulted...

TJ Oshie’s Fiancee, Bikinis For Earth Day & Brett Lawrie Is A ‘Fancy Boy’ Sign

  NBA Playoffs are FAN-TASTIC! Only one series out of eight is tied at 1-1 (Spurs-Clippers). If there’s a Game 6 in the Celtics-Cavs series, it would be played on May 2. That’s why I keep telling you guys just to take it slow with this time of year. Don’t forget to plant some flowers. Do some work around the house.

Oakland’s Brett Lawrie: ‘Shame On’ Kansas City Royals Fans

Brett Lawrie doesn’t like 100 mph baseballs thrown at or near his head. Who could blame him? Baseball is a game, and having a pitcher openly threaten to throw at your head is unacceptable. So when that happened last weekend during the Oakland Athletics’ series at the Kansas City Royals, Lawrie wasn’t impressed. But arguably worse? Having fans cheer...

Salvador Perez is Still Annoying Lorenzo Cain

There aren’t many people fond of the headhunting Kansas City Royals these days. They’ve morphed from the team that hasn’t won anything in forever to the team with their own version of an NWO video: (All of this because of a Brett Lawrie slide…) However, in the clubhouse they’re still the fun, lovable bunch from last season. Just check out Salvador Perez’s Instagram...

We’re Sorry.

Dear Brett Lawrie, Hey man. Things really got out of hand last weekend, right? I mean, when I asked you to slide into my DM’s I didn’t figure it’d be like that.. But listen, now that we’ve all had a couple of days to relax, 4/20 day has come and gone, I was hoping we […]

The series that the Oakland A’s and Kansas City Royals played over the weekend was as heated as it gets for mid-April.

Havin’ some fun at the Ole Ball Game

The weekend series between the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics will be one not soon forgotten by anyone on either side of the match, and probably Major League Baseball as well.  Things were done, things were said, and things will probably happen because of all of this, but the lasting impression is that if you don't start a fight, there typically won't be a fight. ...

A new rivalry brews in pretty much the most eventful & exciting April series one can ask for

This weekend’s series vs. the Oakland A’s was something, eh? What was supposed to be the bittersweet return of Billy Butler to Kansas City, became an ugly, hate fueled series in the top of the seventh inning of the opening game Friday night. With the score tied at 4 after a Stephen Vogt’s second home run off of starter Jeremy Guthrie (the third solo shot of the night...

Cooler Heads Needed in Kansas City

A wild weekend in Kansas City came roaring to a hostile conclusion yesterday afternoon. Little did new A’s third baseman Brett Lawrie know when he slid hard into Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar on Friday night, that he was setting off what has the makings of one of the best baseball feuds in recent memory. Escobar is now day-to-day with a sprained knee. Here is the slide, which...

Tensions ran extremely high during the A's-Royals series over the weekend. It all started Friday night when Oakland third baseman slid very hard into second base trying to break up a double play.

After heated Royals-A's series, a cool-headed look at what sparked it all

A few points on the contentious Royals-A's weekend series, which could produce fines and/or suspensions after purpose pitches and general shenanigans. *I don't believe Oakland's Brett Lawrie tried to injure Kansas City shortstop Alcides Escobar with his aggressive slide in the seventh inning of Friday's series opener. But it was a bad play -- because of the way it hurt the A's in...

WATCH: Royals-A's game filled with more ejections

The Kansas City Royals have a problem with the Oakland Athletics, and one beanball from Yordano Ventura to Brett Lawrie wasn’t going to fix that. In the first inning of Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, Scott Kazmir plunked Lorenzo Cain (it looked accidental since if you’re going to throw at someone, you don’t throw at their feet, but whatever).
