Roster Moves I Actually Made: Gearing up for the Playoffs

Hey everybody! I’m back! It has been about four weeks since I last wrote an entry in this series. First, I traveled through Viking Country (Sweden, Norway and Denmark) for two weeks. Lovely countries. Then, I moved into a new house, my first house, and have inherited a honey-do-list longer than Eric Hosmer is bad. For the record, chopping down seven trees (done professionally)...

Royals rally again as Nori Aoki, Jarrod Dyson come through in 6-1 victory over Twins

The chants overlapped as Nori Aoki stepped toward the plate. From both sides of Kauffman Stadium, the fans threw their voices toward the diamond, the sounds mixing but not muddling. The words were simple — “Let’s go Royals” — but the volume blared in the eighth inning of a 6-1 victory over Minnesota. If Wednesday lacked the sheer drama of Tuesday, when Alex Gordon blasted...

Royals lose back-to-back games for first time since July

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Nothing to worry about yet. The Royals offensively were flat for the second straight game and fell to the Yankees, 8-1 on Monday night in front of 31,758 fans, most of whom were there, judging by the cheering for the Yankees all night, for Derek Jeter's sendoff. The Royals perhaps were more interested in those proceedings as well, as for the second straight...

Do you know who saved the Kansas City Royals season?

At the conclusion of the 2013 season, the Kansas City Royals looked at their 86 win season and celebrated it as a "success" because they were comfortably above .500 and legitimately a part of the chase for the Wild Card up until the middle of September.  Many fans were happy to see them get hot and win a lot of games in the 2nd half of the season.  Others lamented the...

Dyson's hot bat means a few less swings for Cain -- and a lot more options for Yost

MINNEAPOLIS -- For the fourth time in the past five games, Lorenzo Cain did not start Monday night. Jarrod Dyson did. Cain wasn't exactly sure why. He said he is completely healthy. "You'd have to ask (manager Ned Yost)," Cain said. "I have no idea." Yost explained that the decision to start Dyson lately was not a reflection on Cain. "I'm just...

Dyson Still Sucking Up The Steals

We discuss Jarrod Dyson a lot in this column. He's truly what cheap steals are all about. In limited plate appearances he is able to get on base and swipe bags. Not an ideal player to own in weekly leagues, but he can be a huge boost in the steals department for fantasy players in leagues with daily roster moves. So while the Prince of SAGNOF has gotten some love here both in...

Rolling Royals win again, top Oakland A’s 7-3

Throughout the wild ride to the top of the American League Central, the Royals have been front-runners, rarely accessing an extra gear to overcome a deficit. The pitching has overwhelmed opponents, and they’ve generated enough power and timely hits to take control of games early and cruise home. It didn’t happen that way Thursday, and in perhaps the strongest indication they...

Five-Run 7th Leads Royals over A’s

Nursing a 2-1 lead in the sixth inning, Royals fans watched in horror as a glimpse of the “same old Royals” appeared right in front of them. The Tigers had just beaten the Pirates, meaning Kansas City needed a win to stay in first place. Jarrod Dyson lost a crucial battle with the sun, dropping a seemingly routine fly ball that allowed the tying run to score. In the next at bat...

The Royals are in first place! Can they stay there?

The backflip pretty much said it all. After catching the final out in Monday’s 3-2 win over the A’s, Royals center fielder Jarrod Dyson channeled his inner Ozzie Smith and did a backflip to celebrate. Never mind that manager Ned Yost and GM Dayton Moore may have freaked out when they saw Dyson flip backward, fearing potential injury. Maybe they focused instead on the joy in Dyson’s...

Jarrod Dyson celebrates first place Royals with backflip

The Kansas City Royals moved into first place in the AL Central after beating the Oakland Athletics on Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. After catching the final out, he celebrated with a backflip. If this was the Royals franchise of a decade ago, Dyson probably would have broken his ankle.

Josh Reddick’s Attempt To Throw Runner Out Didn’t Go Too Well (Video)

Josh Reddick has a pretty decent arm in right field, so when Kansas City Royals baserunner Jarrod Dyson decided to hold up at second after a single from teammate Omar Infante, it seemed like a wise decision. That is, until Reddick tried to throw the ball. The Oakland A’s outfielder provided viewers with a hilarious blooper when the ball slipped out of his hand during his throw...

But the news that first baseman Eric Hosmer, who has been trying to play with a severe bone bruise for almost two weeks, officially...
