Sunday Notes: Dyson’s Theft, Yost, Collins, Cubs, Madson, more

You’ve probably read about the role scouting played in Jarrod Dyson‘s 12th inning stolen base in Game 5 of the World Series. The Royals knew that New York’s Addison Reed would slow his delivery in certain situations, and “a little shimmy with his hip” was going to be Dyson’s key to run. First base coach Rusty Kuntz shared that bit of info after the game, and I touched...

Alex Gordon and the Royals’ defensive dominance

Alex Gordon is going to be a hot commodity on the free-agent market. Little thought will be given to exercising his current 2016 option, and then he’ll be available to anyone and everyone. The FanGraphs crowd expects him to sign for something in the neighborhood of five years and $90 million, and the crowd can end up low when predicting the higher tier. Relative to other free...

Royals' Christian Colon credits Jonny Gomes for poise

Jonny Gomes is a winner. Regardless of his role, the veteran MLB outfielder brings a positive attitude that’s contagion is unstoppable.

Holy SAGNOF, Batman, Out Of Commission Gordon!

Alex Gordon is out for eight weeks with a seriously strained groin. To add insult to injury, his strained groin was in the smallest colander they could find. Ouch!

Poor billboards. As the Kansas City Royals keep getting better, the damage they inflict on their highway signs just keeps getting worse. To the point that now they're on fire. Or so it appears.
