Production from DH Morales goes a long way for Kansas City

Vargas, Morales Lead Royals Back into First Place

In tonight’s series opener in Minneapolis, the Royals moved back into a tie for first place in the AL Central, thanks in large part to the effort of Jason Vargas.

Royals' middle of the order is among baseball's best

Royals Drop Four Straight, Swept By Yankees, Lose 4-2

About a month back, the Royals wanted to fight everyone while having a, “Royals Against the World” type of attitude. Now, they are struggling and no longer in sole possession of first place. When you check the standings though, you’ll see a team that is 28-18 and 6-4 in their last ten games.   Chris Young pitching in Yankee Stadium sounds like a terrible idea. In...
