Kansas City Royals: 2014 “The Phantom Menace”

If you are over 20 years old, you grew up with Star Wars.  You saw Episode IV "A New Hope", Episode V "The Empire Strikes Back" and Episode VI "Return of the Jedi" and wondered why in the hell the story didn't start with Episode I.  Why couldn't we see what Darth Vader was like when he was Anakin Skywalker?  Was he a whiny little ***** like...

The Theory of Royaltivity

Everything in sports is relative. When the Braves or Cardinals have a .500 season, it is a down year. A “bad” year. One to forget, often ripe with a fan base calling for change. When the Kansas City Royals reached and exceeded .500 in 2003, it was considered a magical year. This wasn’t because it was an example of spectacular baseball, but rather because they were a group...

Batting Practice Doesn’t Translate as White Sox Beat Royals 3-1

“I think we’ve got guys who can definitely hit for power. If you don’t believe me, just watch BP.” -Ned Yost Well, Royals fans…. We’re not far from Rock Bottom. Actually, we’re two games from Rock Bottom, but don’t worry. Dayton Moore still thinks that we can win with the players that are currently on the roster, and that’s why he isn’t selling.

Yosted (Stop me If You’ve Heard This Before)

Kansas City was majorly Yosted tonight. Mr. Glass must be going through serious withdrawals what with losing 3/4 to the Tigers, and now again tonight. At one point in this game, the Royals actually had a lead. I promise. There’s proof and everything. Our boys put a run on the board in the first inning after a double by Omar Infante and a long single by Eric Hosmer. Boston then...

Punchless Royals go down feebly to Red Sox again

The season with so much promise is rapidly slipping away. And the team that has been insisting for weeks that it will be find because it is a second-half team is off to an awful second-half start after losing their second straight to Boston, 2-1. And the odds of a series sweep are high -- the toothless Royals offense now must try to best Royals-killer Jon Lester on Sunday. Lester...

The Boston Red Sox have struggled defensively this year, but their defensive answer may have been right under their noses all season.

3 Reasons the Royals Will Make the Playoffs in 2014

Yesterday, we looked at the three reasons why the Kansas City Royals won't make the playoffs in 2014, but on this, the day before baseball resumes, we turn the tables. The Royalcoaster has made for some very tense times this season, but through it all, the team is still within shouting distance of both the first place Detroit Tigers and the second wild card.

Royals Are Between A Rock And A Hard Place

This will be tough to write. It pains me to write it, because a month ago in this space, I said that the Royals had “a great chance” to win the division. Since that piece was posted, even including the win that day, the Royals have gone 10-14. So for roughly 1/6 of the season, they’ve played like a 68-win team. Sorry about that, fellow fans. I thought the Royals had figured...

Raking Catchers, and Injuries–or as We Like to Call it, Wednesday

Yesterday was a rough day for a few of the Kansas City Royals starters. Following his start on Tuesday night Jason Vargas was rushed to the hospital for an emergency Appendectomy.   According to Ned Yost, “there were no complication, and everything went great.”  Which is good news.  There is currently no timetable for his return, but it is expect that Bruce “The Big Tipper”...

Line Drive Goes Right Through The Webbing Of Eric Hosmer’s Glove

Well, this is unusual to say the least. In the bottom of the seventh inning of Kansas City’s game against Tampa Bay yesterday, Kevin Kiermaier absolutely laced a ball right at Eric Hosmer. The Kansas City first baseman failed to catch the scorching liner, though it ended up in Omar Infante’s hands, who threw to first for the out. At first glance, it appeared that the liner simply...

Memo: To Royals Fans

  For the better part of three decades, Royals fans have only known the feeling of disappointment. There have been few bright spots, few glimmers of hope, and few reasons to, quite frankly, even remain a fan at all. For much of this time, fans have asked repeatedly for only one thing from Royals ownership and management. Give us a team that matters. Something relevant. A team that...

Flanny's Five: No getting around it now -- Hosmer needs to be dropped in order

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- OK, the good news is that the Tigers finally have cooled off and just got swept in a three-game series.
