Royals Upended, Drop Game One 16-4

  Jeremy Guthrie was very Jonathan Sancez-esque tonight. I would’ve said Aaron Brooks, but it was not THAT bad. Guthrie finished his night after four innings. Guthrie allowed eight earned runs, but I guess if we’re going to look at positives, he only allowed one home run. In a way, that feels like we won the game, right? The bullpen was also very, very bad tonight. I could...

One mental misfire and a dozen unused base runners burn Royals in Tampa

This one stings. The Royals put 15 runners on base and scored just three, and shortstop Alcides Escobar made a huge mental error in a frustrating 4-3 loss to Tampa Bay on Tuesday. Escobar tried to turn a double play by himself in the eighth inning instead of tossing the ball to second baseman Omar Infante for an easy force -- both runners were safe and that opened the door for two...

Ventura, Royals relievers nail down 3-2 win over the Cardinals

He had gone 60 days between major-league appearances, first felled by a bruised finger, and then stranded on a rehabilitation assignment by a Royals club in little hurry to return him to this level. He lacks a certified role in the team’s bullpen and serves as just another arm in their middle-relief muddle. Francisley Bueno entered in the seventh inning of a 3-2 victory over the...

Royals win final I-70 battle, take season series from rival Cardinals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Series by series. That's the way Royals skipper Ned Yost said he believes the Royals will crawl back over .500 and closer to the division-leading Detroit Tigers. And the Royals employed that theory against the rival St. Louis Cardinals, taking three of four in a home-and-home series that was capped by a pulsating 3-2 win on Thursday. "A split would have...

Kansas City Royals Bullpen Returns to Winning Ways

by John Viril— The Kansas City Royals bullpen has mowed down opponents for the last week. As a team, the bullpen hasn’t given up an earned run in its last 18.1 IP.  They haven’t surrendered a run since allowing two unearned tallies in Wade Davis‘ blown save one week ago against Minnesota (also Kansas City’s last loss). The bullpen’s dominance has fueled the team’s...

Silver linings: the fun side of injuries

When you’re the injured, there’s not much fun to injury, so my apologies to Omar Infante (AKA the Crimson Chin) and Tim Collins and Francisley Bueno. Infante is just one lucky dude: if the pitch hits him an inch higher, he probably doesn’t see out of his left eye for a while; an inch lower […]

Friday Notes

It's hard to believe that this is just the second edition of Friday Notes of the young Kansas City Royals season because it feels like we've been doing this for weeks already. I guess that's what happens when every game (or seemingly so) is a one run affair. Luckily the Royals had a bit of a laugher on Wednesday to take them into their off day before they face the Twins...

In their place, the Royals have called up lefty Donnie Joseph and right-handed reliever, Michael Mariot. Joseph got into six games with the Royals during the 2013 season, but Michael Mariot will...

Royals September call-ups playing a different role this season

From September 1 to the end of the season, Major League Baseball allows teams to expand their rosters from 25 to a maximum of 40 players. Teams call up players from the minors to give them major league playing time, or to add depth for a team’s potential playoff run. For many years, the Royals were out of the playoff hunt by September. So to make games somewhat interesting, the...

With my Kansas City Baby and a bottle of Kansas City wine

  These Kansas City Royals have turned out to be quite the pesky bunch. How dare they turn the tables on us, taking a 6-3 deficit  and turning it into a 9-6 victory. That’s what we do, not what is done to us. Let’s face it, six runs and eleven hits is generally a win, but Peavy fell apart early and two guys I never heard of (Drake Britton and Pedro Beato) did the rest. The...
