For Royals Fans its Too Early to Worry

Is it too early to worry? I suppose it would depend on what it is that you are worrying about. The fans are obviously not happy with the performance of Joakim Soria, and with a 6.75 ERA in his 9 games I suppose that I can understand the concern, though not to the point of booing him. This isn't New York or Philadelphia, it is Kansas City. We as fans are above booing, especially...

Diagnosing Duffy’s Regression Against Righties

Danny Duffy has had what one might describe as an enigmatic career. He was a top prospect, then a struggling rookie, then an injured pitcher, then an impressive starter, then an inconsistent starter, then an electric reliever, and now he finds himself among the bevy of talented arms in the Royals’ bullpen. At some point this year, it’s quite possible, even likely, the team will...

KC Royals: Naming Chris Young To Rotation A Mistake

KC Royals manager Ned Yost informed lefty Danny Duffy to focus on a bullpen role, while naming Chris Young as a starting pitcher to open the 2016 season. I think putting Chris Young in the rotation is a mistake. Yes, Chris Young pitched very well last season, going 11-6 with a 3.06 ERA in 123.1 […] KC Royals: Naming Chris Young To Rotation A Mistake - Kings of Kauffman - Kings...

KC Royals: Too Soon To Give Up On Danny Duffy As Starter

KC Royals pitcher Danny Duffy has been slated to the bullpen by most pundits and fans. Not so fast. It’s too soon to give up on the 27-year-old lefty as a starting pitcher.

Danny Duffy Should Start Season in Royals Bullpen

All around baseball, there will be arguments about whether a certain pitcher should be pitching out of the bullpen or should be a starter. The Royals have dealt with it forever. I can remember the arguments around Tom Gordon pitching in relief or starting. Then it moved on to Hipolito Pichardo and then Joakim Soria […]

What is the Success Rate of Shoulder Surgery?

In 2014, when Danny Duffy walked off the mound after throwing just a single pitch, much of Kansas City was holding its breath, awaiting and half expecting what are possibly the most ominous two words in baseball: “elbow pain.” Later that day, the Royals reported that Duffy was dealing with a shoulder problem, and there […]

No matter what happens in the next seven games, we’ll be motivated to learn a grander lesson from it. Not many picked this World Series matchup anyway, so we’ll search ourselves for a takeaway. Why did we look the wrong way? The problem with going too far down this rabbit hole, other than not finding very much, is that these teams couldn’t be any more different. Name a facet...

Danny Duffy’s poor pitching performances have seen him bumped out of the rotation. It took 5 horrid starts, but we finally saw the Johnny Cueto of old on Saturday night. Even though he was unable to get a win, he managed to limit the runs against him. This is great news for the Royals, but as we see Jeremy Guthrie return to the rotation and the demotion of Danny Duffy to the bullpen...
