Recap: Mariners 1, Royals 0 – You’re Kidding Right?

If I told you that Kris Medlen would walk two batters in the first and two batters in the second with Felix Hernandez pitching for the other side, my guess is you would have shrugged and chalked it up as another bad game in what is becoming one rough road trip. Except that very believable story line hardly describes what happened Friday night to the Kansas City Royals. As a team...

Slumping Royals Head North and West to Right the Ship

    I started writing this right after the series finale against the Angels, Wednesday night. It’s probably a good thing that I erased almost everything I had written because I needed to talk myself off the ledge. Losing is bad, but getting swept is worse. Here’s the good news, it’s only APRIL! I’ve been trying to figure out why many of us are so frustrated...

Eric Hosmer And The Chase For 3,000 Hits

Last Sunday, Eric Hosmer yanked a curveball into the right-field seats at Kauffman Stadium, tucking it neatly between the foul pole and the visitors’ bullpen. Not only did the home run give the Royals the lead for good, it was the 800th hit of Hosmer’s career. Baseball loves it some round numbers. Heck, people in general love round numbers. Seeing that double zero in Hosmer...

RECAP: Royals 2, Angels 4; Talkin’ West Coast Baseball Blues

I’m grumpy today, not because the Royals lost. But because I stayed up way past my normal bedtime to watch the Royals lose. Again. For the third night in a row. West Coast baseball can be a drag. Thankfully, the Royals leave Los Angeles, head to Seattle for three, and never have to return to the West Coast. Until next year. Hos Is Hot As David Lesky noted earlier this week, it...

RECAP: Royals 1, Angels 6; Jet Lagged

West Coast baseball games can be brutal on the sleep schedule. They can, like all baseball games at times, be brutal to watch. Monday’s game could fall into both categories. The Angels scored early.

Ryan O’Hearn Adjustment Changes His Prospect Rating

When you’re an amateur scout like myself often times, actually more often than not, you have to admit you may have been wrong in an assessment or too conservative.

Recap: Royals 4, Athletics 2; Just Enough Offense, Just Enough Eddie

The first series against the Athletics in 2016 got off to a much more peaceful start than last year’s matchup. No fireworks between the dugouts, and really, not many fireworks on the diamond. After scoring a pair of runs in the first inning, the Royals were unable to do much more offensively the rest of the night. However, the pitching and defense kept the A’s at bay, and Eric...
