Searching for Starters: AL Central

As much as we would all like our favorite clubs to employ multiple star sluggers and a handful of true aces, this is more of a fantasy than a realistic situation. I can’t even pull this off in fantasy ball, now that I think about it. In any case, filling roster weaknesses is both tricky and a necessity. The trick is simply to identify value where others do not; that is what I will...

Moore on maybe not carrying backup middle infielder: 'It's not like rosters are frozen Opening Day'

Since I began mentioning a few weeks ago that the Royals might start the season without a backup middle infielder on the 25-man roster, there seems to be some genuine concern out there in Royals land. The reason the Royals might start the season without a backup middle infielder is because they are leaning toward carrying five outfielders. Aside from the starters, Jarrod Dyson, Justin...

Royals' Dyson not conceding the CF job to Cain

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jarrod Dyson isn't conceding the Royals' starting job in center field, even if it means taking it from his good friend and teammate, Lorenzo Cain.

Royals’ five-run eighth leads to 6-1 victory over Twins

For seven innings Tuesday night the Royals played to their most infuriating form by threatening to waste a shutdown effort from James Shields by squandering a bushel of scoring opportunities. That all changed in a five-run eighth inning that produced a 6-1 victory over the Minnesota Twins on a steamy night at Target Field. That makes three straight victories since the Royals ended...

Who's faster: Chiefs' Charles or Royals' Dyson?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) The challenge was laid down. All that's keeping Royals outfielder Jarrod Dyson and Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles from deciding the fastest man in Kansas City sports is about 300 yards of parking lot between Kauffman Stadium and Arrowhead Stadium.

Royals must flush memory of bad loss Saturday night

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Five observations on the current state of the Royals: BARE MINIMUM After the hugely disappointing home series against the Marlins in which the Royals lost two of three, the feeling here was the Royals had to win three of five in Detroit to make a statement, or at least two to stay on the edge of the conversation for a playoff spot.
