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! Sure, in deep leagues, this one hurts. I'm not doubting that. Okay, I am, but let's stay on good footing today since it's Friday, and say I'm not doubting it.

Kansas City Royals: Early season disappointments

Outfielder Jarrod Dyson has gotten off to a slow start this season offensively (mlb.com). The Kansas City Royals are off to a great start in the 2015 campaign with many players contributing to the teams success.

Keeping Perspective: How will the Royals respond to their first two losses?

  Perspective. "A particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view."    If, at the beginning of this season, a wizard would have been able to gaze into a crystal ball and predict that the Kansas City Royals would be 7-2 after their first nine games (including a sweep of the White Sox and the Angels) most sensible Royals fans would have...

Kansas City Royals: Speed and the impact of Jarrod Dyson

The speed element of Jarrod Dyson is an invaluable asset to the Royals’ lineup (chatsports.com).

Not only are the Royals on fire, their billboard is, too

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. Two years ago, signs on opposite sides of Interstate 35 showed a pitch from James Shields (on one side of the road) tearing through the billboard vinyl on its way toward Sal Perez's glove...
