The Royals and Patience Don’t Mix

With some exceptions, the Kansas City Royals have struggled to score runs throughout their history. If you don't believe me, I'll give you some facts here in a little bit on that. The Royals headed into the off-season following their World Series run with a couple edicts. The one we'll talk about today is that they needed to score more runs. As much as the 2014 Royals succeeded with...

Royals return to playoffs in dramatic fashion

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It had been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals had last been to the postseason - nearly three decades spent mostly in baseball's backwater, a small-market organization on a shoe-string budget trying in vain to compete with the big boys. On Tuesday night, they returned to the game's grand stage in dramatic fashion. Salvador Perez singled home the winning...

The Craziest Royalcoaster Ride Yet

When I left for Kauffman Stadium to attend the Royals first playoff game in 29 years, I knew I was in for something special. I didn't know what would happen, but I was going to be able to say that I was there. I knew that if the Royals won that game, there would be far more than 40,000 or so who would say they were there, but that's fine because I knew I actually would be there....

Royals End Regular Season on Winning Note

I guess the Royals decided that they didn’t need to show up after they clinched a spot in the playoffs. They’re wrong, and wasted a perfectly good opportunity to force a game 163, but if you think about it, maybe a game 163 wouldn’t be the greatest thing for the Royals. Ned Yost would’ve used James Shields for game 163, and Jason Vargas for the wildcard game. I shudder when...

Royals' Colon (aka, help for Infante) hopes to return in a week or so

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- With all the focus recently on the injuries to left-hander Danny Duffy and closer Greg Holland, another key injury to a Royal already has been somewhat forgotten. But there is no question the Royals miss the contributions of rookie utility infielder Christian Colon, who suffered a fracture in the middle finger of his throwing hand Sept. 2. The original diagnosis...

Number Munchers: Back to Minors Part II – Do Numbers Matter?

A couple weeks back, Number Munchers took a look at the career progression of Christian Colon.

One defensive misfire derails the Royals in Colorado

Pitching and defense have been the Royals' calling card all season. But a rare defensive miscue turned what looked like a victory into a loss as the Colorado Rockies scored four unearned runs in a 5-2 win over the Royals on Wednesday night. Third baseman Christian Colon, playing for Mike Moustakas, fielded a hot grounder with two outs and none on in the sixth and promptly threw the...

Royals' Colon does one thing very well: He wins

MINNEAPOLIS -- After infielder Christian Colon was drafted in 2010 by the Royals, the hardest adjustment he had to make in the minor leagues wasn't adapting to better pitching. The challenge was not getting upset at his teammates for playing selfish baseball. "He was such a team-first guy in college at (Cal-State) Fullerton, team captain and all that," Royals assistant general manager...
