7/27 Recap: Anderson’s Luck Runs Out, Royals Keep Winning

Player of the Game Francisco Lindor gave the Indians a small sign of hope by taking advantage of some late wildness from starter Edinson Volquez. The Royals righty walked Giovanny Urshela and Jason Kipnis to start the seventh and was replaced by Joe Blanton.

Kansas City Royals connected to several top-flight pitchers as the trade deadline approaches

The Kansas City Royals are likely the best team the American League has to offer. A solid offense and a terrific bullpen have led the Royals to a 57-36 record, tops in the AL and second best in all of baseball. Despite this great record, there is one crucial element of the Royals roster that just might hold them back when the playoffs come around. Their starting pitchers are mediocre...

Royals Take Series Behind Dominant Volquez

With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why? They were applauding Edinson Volquez and his nearly eight strong innings. The offense, featuring not one, but two, home runs, was able to provide enough run support.   It seems like there have been plenty of nights here lately where the Royals needed their...

Royals' Volquez knows these Pirates -- he was one a year ago

Baseball Karma Is An Unpleasant Female Canine

The Kansas City Royals pitched my Stros inside all night. They were finishing out their last series at the Juice Box (and got their proverbial butts handed to them by my mighty mighty Stros—boo yeah!). Apparently, the process didn’t sit well with Royals starter Edinson Volquez.  He hit three of my Astros.  I thought that the ride in/up pitch on George Springer may–may have...

Royals at White Sox: Weekend Recap

It seems like 2014 and 2015 for the Kansas City Royals have been compared an infinite amount of times, so what’s the harm in a few more?   Coming out of the break last year, the Royals were swept by the lowly Houston Astros in a three game set.
