Royals Drop Wild Opener Against the Pirates

Kansas City has played some wild, whacky, and long ballgames in the last week. On Friday, they played a day-night doubleheader, and on Saturday they played a thirteen inning marathon. Today’s game was wild, whacky, and long, but the Royals would not come out on top in a match that would last three-and-a-half hours.   Yordano Ventura started this game way back in the first...

Grading The Kansas City Royals Offseason

The Kansas City Royals had a lot to be proud of as they walked off the field last season. Regardless of the fact they didn’t win the World Series, they were a team that was projected to be close to making the playoffs, and in fact did make it to the World Series. After a team has so much success, should they alter their lineup and bullpen to improve, or keep it relatively the...

Once a rising star, Medlen gets another chance at stardom with Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore looked like a happy man Thursday. Moore had just introduced his latest signing, right-hander Kris Medlen, and this was anything but your typical splashy, big-monied, Hot Stove free-agent signing.
