Royals' strengths are weaknesses in disheartening 5-3 loss to Tribe

Well, this is the type of game the Royals are supposed to win. They got a quality start from Jason Vargas (six innings, two earned runs), they got long balls from Sal Perez and Mike Moustakas, and they even got a clutch, two-out RBI hit from Moustakas again in the sixth inning. But generally what the Royals excel at -- defense and a strong bullpen -- betrayed them in a disheartening...

The Royals finally flex their muscles in 8-2 romp over Tribe

The Royals brought out their version of the long ball Tuesday night in Cleveland -- four doubles, and a home run. Hey, not the '27 Yankees, we know. But for a team as power-challenged as the Royals, they'll take it. The big blow was Mike Moustakas' three-run jolt into the right-field seats that put the Royals up 3-1. And the Royals rolled from there, 8-2, to climb back...

Indians' homers trump Royals' defense in 4-3 win

The first game of a tough seven-game road trip had most of the elements of a Royals' victory -- fantastic defense, superb job by the bullpen, and even a couple of key hits. But it wasn't enough to offset Cleveland's long ball. The Indians belted two two-run homers in a 4-3 win over the powerless Royals, who remain last in all of baseball with just six team home runs....

Dyson Sucks Up Steals

Jarrod Dyson gets a nice short-term spike in value with the injury to Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain. Dyson had been placed on the bereavement list heading into the weekend, but he is expected to rejoin the team today.

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. "Hey, I got to eat, too," Dyson says, smiling. "... I don't make the decisions. But I'm trying to take an everyday job. That's my goal. If I don't, I'll play my role, whatever...

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?

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.
