On Thursday, April 14, the Royals beat the Houston Astros 6-4 at Minute Maid Park. It was their third consecutive win, pushing their overall record to 7-2. A great follow-up to their championship season. Over their next 16 games, they won just six, scoring a total of 43 runs. Yikes. That’s an average of 2.7 runs per game. That’s futility. The offensive malaise has infected nearly...

The Royals Have Their Lead-off Man

  Danville, Kentucky — Folks, it didn't take long, but the spreadsheet gazers of the world are already questioning the wisdom of World Series Champion™  Ned Yost. Overreacting to a couple of games of lukewarm offensive production in April, folks are calling for ALCS MVP Alcides Escobar to be demoted from the lead-off spot of the batting order. The calls are growing...

Hitting with Runners in Scoring Position is Remedy to Royals Offensive Woes

The Royals enter today’s afternoon tilt with the Mariners hoping to avoid consecutive sweeps and a winless, 6-game road trip, which would be the longest losing streak since dropping seven straight from August 17-24, 2013. In the process, the Royals (12-11), who have lost five straight for the first time since May 1-5, 2014, are in the midst of a 26-inning scoreless streak...

Sunday On The Deck

It is rainy and cold here on my deck today, not unlike your thoughts might be of the current state of the Kansas City Royals. Losers of five straight, shutout two nights in a row and scoreless for 26 straight innings, this squad is currently not the ‘fun’ version of the Royals. They are, in fact, decidedly ‘un-fun’ and immensely frustrating.  I say that, by the way, after...

Surfing the Waivers for Week Five Targets

It has been a month in fantasy baseball and now it is time to see how the standings look. With four weeks passed, take stock of your team and now it is time to address needs. Whether it is a category or addressing the offense or pitching, this is when the fantasy trading season starts to percolate.

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...

Friday Notes

It’s been a long week for the Royals. Good thing they were able to take care of business at home because that trip to Anaheim was a stinker that we’d be best served to pretend like it didn’t happen and just go about our days. The offense is going through a rough stretch, but in a different way than we’ve seen in the past. I said on Twitter on Wednesday that they seem to do...

Freaking Out About the Royals

The defending Champion Kansas City Royals find themselves 3.5 games back of the Central Division lead after the first 21 games of the  2016 season. Those 21 games represent 13% of the year, meaning a sizeable chunk is already in the books. They still maintain the T-3rd best record in the American League, but that will not stop the fan-base from finding ways to panic, especially...

Recap: Angels 9, Royals 4 – I Call No Joy

What if I told you the bottom third of the Kansas City Royals’ batting order (Perez, Infante and Dyson) would combine for five doubles on the night?  What if I told you Anaheim starting pitcher would not throw a pitch faster than 85 mph all night?  What if, my friends, I told you that your Royals would score four runs? Positive thoughts?  You’re wrong. I hope you got a good...

Kansas City Royals living up to the hype

The Kansas City Royals had an amazing run last year at winning the World Series. After making it to the World Series and losing in 2014, it was remarkable how the team powered through the adversity and became champions the very next year. Now there are talks that the Royals are the favorites in the American League (that’s for you to decide. But through the first month of baseball...

How Jarrod Dyson’s Speed Can Help Alcides Escobar Improve

With Jarrod Dyson rejoining the Royals’ big league roster, the lineup finally looks like the one the organization had in mind before Spring Training began. Neither Paulo Orlando nor Reymond Fuentes did much to wrest the right field job away from Dyson while he was rehabbing, so he strolled right through the clubhouse into the ninth spot in the order on Tuesday night, and he’ll...

RECAP: Royals 8, Tigers 6; The Return of Dyson

In their first contest against their division rival, the Royals emerge with a win. Except it may not feel like a win. The headline perhaps ignores the storyline in that the Royals bullpen did their best Dave Dombrowski era Tiger bullpen impersonation. Salvador Perez was your offensive star of the game, driving home five runs and blasting a home run. Jarrod Dyson made his 2016 debut...
