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...

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…...

Twins dealt defeat by familiar face in Hendriks

By most accounts, Twins right-hander Phil Hughes had been one of baseball's best pitchers in August leading up to Wednesday's start against Kansas City. Hughes was 4-0 with a 1.32 ERA in his first four starts this month, walking just two batters while striking out 30. But on Wednesday night, Hughes was outdueled by a familiar face for Twins fans.

Dayton Blows Up Team

  I don’t get it. Dayton Moore, try as he may, just cant seem to please everyone. On Monday, he traded Danny Valencia for an old backup catcher and a project AAA pitcher. I like the trade. Don’t love it…but its so minor, honestly who cares? Many feel that losing Danny Valencia means losing a good right handed hitter, which is true. There are always two sides to a coin however...
