MLB Game Picks - Wednesday: September 17, 2014

Last night was fun to watch for a lot of Beltway fans as the Nationals and Orioles clinched their divisions. I feel happy for the fans of those teams as they get to celebrate (for now) the accomplishments of the teams. For others seeking the wild card, last night was a problem as several of them lost and that became a problem for me as I did not have a good night of picking at all...

Royals Continue to Struggle: Fall to Boston Red Sox

Only the guy who isn’t rowing has time to rock the boat. Jean-Paul Sartre   Losing a game to the Boston Red Sox with Liam Hendriks on the mound is not the end of the world, but when doing it with the grace and style the Royals displayed, it sure feels like it.   For the 4th time in the last 6 games, the Royals lost. They do still cling to an ever so slim half game lead...

Royals bumble and stumble their way to a loss to last-place Red Sox

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A seemingly tired group of Royals showed up at Kauffman Stadium on Thursday night and appeared to sleep-walk through one of their worst performances in recent memory. The Royals kicked the ball around for three errors, got horrible starting pitching and didn't bother with much of an approach at the plate in a dismal 6-3 loss to the lowly Boston Red Sox in front...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, Sep 11

Yesterday was a great day for my Official Lineup. It scored 147.05 points and finished 108th-of-8,802. Rafael Montero was great for a low price, Drew Hutchison resembled Marcus Stroman from earlier in the week while shutting down the Cubs, and the Pirates stack  came through, including homers by Andrew McCutchen (inside the park) and Russell Martin (conventional over the fence)...

Series Preview: Royals vs. Boston Red Sox, September 11-14

The Kansas City Royals return home on the heels of a 3-3 road trip that seemed to have as many ups and downs as the rest of the season prior. They had a bit of a rough series against the Tigers, though they got back on track in the series finale. This is a good series to continue getting back on track. The Red Sox are one of the worst teams in baseball this season and are even worse...

Royals Continue to Succeed

      Well…..fans of Kansas City certainly awaken this fine Monday morning to a much different feel to fall sports than we are accustomed. With the Royals in the lead of the Central Division approaching mid September, while television analysts have stated doom and gloom for the Chiefs outlook, it would seem that the Chiefs season may actually be left for dead long before the...

Flanny's Five: Royals dodge a bullet with Duffy, prepare for showdown in Motown

The Royals got some good news on the Danny Duffy front: His MRI came back Sunday night and showed that his ailing left shoulder is structurally sound. The MRI indicated Duffy has rotator-cuff inflammation, and the Royals said Duffy will not make his next scheduled start Thursday against Boston. It seems likely that right-hander Liam Hendriks will make that start, although left-hander...

Duffy Exits Early, Hendriks Wears Ugly Loss to Yankees

Danny Duffy’s final pitch count would be…. One. After throwing the first pitch, Duffy shook his arm rather awkwardly, and third baseman Mike Moustakas motioned for Ned Yost and Nick Kenny to come have a look at the Royals young lefty. Duffy left the game, and they determined in the second inning that it was because of left shoulder soreness. I don’t mean to alarm anybody, but…...

Welcome to another first place edition of Friday Notes. I believe this is our third straight edition where the Kansas City Royals are in first place in the AL Central. I think I could really get used to this. They moved into sole possession of first place following their game on August 11 and I really thought it would go back and forth a few times, but the Royals have hung on since...
