Countdown to Cooperstown: Class of 2015

What's interesting about the Hall of Fame Class of 2015 is the same thing that got us excited about the Class of 2014...there are some definite no-brainers, shoe-ins if you will. Truth is, I don't know if the Hall of Fame has had back-to-back-to-back years (yup, already looking your way, 2016!) with so many quality, legitimate first ballot candidates.  But, as was...

Angels Classic Rewind | Dateline: September 18th, 2002

By Joe Haakenson, AngelsWin.com Contributor -  SEPT. 18, 2002 GAME 152 - ANGELS AT A’S OAKLAND – On Tuesday night, the Oakland A's hitters didn't get close enough to smell second base. Wednesday night, they tap-danced on it. Not a single A's baserunner got as far as second base in the Angels' 1-0 win Tuesday, so they took out their aggressions on Angels...

Athletes Who’ll Pop A Cap In An Animal For Thanksgiving Dinner

It’s a Busted Coverage tradition unlike any other. The annual “Athletes Killing Animals” post always seems to fire up the PETA crowd, give hunters an erection and cause tofurkey eaters to puke. But it’s that time of year when we celebrate dropping an 8-point buck or blasting a round into a turkey that’s turned into a meal. And before you condemn BC for only showing NASCAR...

The Rich Get Richer: The Failure Of Competitive Balance In Baseball

In 2003, when baseball enacted the “Competitive Balance Tax”, the concept was that it would force large market teams to spend less. After all, there was nothing inherently fair about watching the New York Yankees have a payroll of $188 million, and the Kansas City Royals have a payroll of $39 million. When one team has all of the resources, there is no question which team a star...

A powerful breakfast

As a guy who has lacked in home run power over the beginning of his career in Kansas City, Billy Butler, has taken the bull by the horns this season setting a new career high in home runs only 111 games into the 2012 season.  Butler is on pace to become the first Royal to hit 30 home runs in a season since Jermaine Dye did it in 2000.

Beltran returns to Kansas City for first time

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Nearly eight years to the day since he was traded out of town, outfielder Carlos Beltran returned to Kauffman Stadium for the first time Friday. And while the stadium hardly looks the same and nearly nobody except a few stadium security guards look familiar to him, the memories of his first six-plus years in the big leagues remain strong.

My Second-Favorite Royals: Position by Position

The lists that show us the best all-time of a team or a certain position bore me.  Plus, they always have that, "How can you leave out [Player X]?!!!" element to them.  To change it up a bit, I came up with a list of my own second-favorite Kansas City Royals based on their position.  This is neither statistical nor scouting based; it is just based on the illogical observations...

Black History Month: The All-Time Royals

The history of African Americans in baseball may not be represented better anywhere in the world than it is in Kansas City with the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum. From Buck O’Neil to Josh Gibson, you can learn about a plethora of black baseball players that excelled before they were allowed to compete in the ‘Major Leagues’.
