Is There Room for Chris Young?

Two bits of news spread almost simultaneously Monday night: Bruce Chen signed somewhere for a minor-league contract, and Barry Zito had signed somewhere else for, also, a minor-league contract. This is the season of minor-league contracts, as the pool of available free agents has been reduced to a puddle on an otherwise dry concrete foundation. But […]

Royals Rotation Has Tough Act to Follow

Let's take a trip back in time and think about the discussion surrounding the Kansas City Royals at this time last year. It was actually quite similar to what we're talking about this year, especially in regards to the starting rotation. At this time last year, everyone was worried that the rotation would take a step back because of the loss of Ervin Santana and because Bruce Chen...

Detroit: Behind Enemy Lines

  After a series with the lowly Twins in which the Royals struggled, but ultimately took two of the three games, their place atop the AL central seems to be in jeopardy. They currently have a tenuous hold on a one and a half game lead, but there is reason to believe that they can, in fact, hang on (if Bruce Chen isn’t pitching too often). As a native Missourian that has been transplanted...

Mixed Bag 8.29.14

Wearing It - Ned Yost let Bruce Chen wear one last night after he gave up a run which in actuality was a good move once the lead was given away. Facts remain that the Chenster shouldn't be on this roster right now as he has been extremely ineffective all season long and their are more talented pitchers at AA or AAA that should take his spot but at least Yost didn't double the mistake...

Come On CHEN…..To Omaha

So the Vultures are officially circling.  It is time to put Bruce Chen to pasture.  I have been a fan of his the past few years, but this year he has really shown his age.  With a 7.45 ERA and some truly awful outings from the bullpen, Chen and his $3 million dollar contract, have lost all value on this team (on the field anyways).  As rosters get expanded next week it would...

Chen implodes in 10th as Twins end Royals' run of late-inning magic

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The late-inning magic wasn't there Thursday. Yes, the Royals did battle back from 2-0, 4-2 and 5-4 deficits to push the game into extra innings. But they couldn't push across a run in the ninth with the score tied 5-5. "We just couldn't break their serve," manager Ned Yost said. And then in the 10th, Yost, who didn't want to use Wade Davis a third straight game...

Extra Tough Loss For Chen, Royals 11-5

Last time out, Jeremy Guthrie pitched seven innings, while battling through a fifty-three minute rain delay. Luckily, there was no rain in sight, and Jeremy Guthrie was allowed an uninterrupted start tonight. Unfortunately, Guthrie’s start would be a bad one. Tonight’s contest between the Twins had a rather odd start. Not that Jeremy Guthrie allowing two runs in an inning is...

After acing 'hard' part of the schedule, Royals now must handle the cupcakes

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Cinderella didn't just survive the gantlet. She went all medieval on its backside. The Kansas City Royals used Oakland, Arizona, San Francisco and Oakland (reprise) as a launch pad to the penthouse, a prelude toward scoreboard watching and October dreaming. Now comes the hard part. The cupcakes. Rows and rows and rows of 'em. "Suddenly, a playoff team comes, they...
