Complete Inning By Inning Breakdown of Royals Wildcard Win

    My wife was mourning NO HUD?  That cracks me up. Top of First:Shields had some trouble finding the strike zone against Crisp who hit the sixth pitch to left for a single. Fuld got under a pitch and flied to Gordon.  The third pitch in his sequence looked like a missed call by the ump.  Against Donaldson it seemed that the A’s know which pitch is the change.  But then...

The Craziest Royalcoaster Ride Yet

When I left for Kauffman Stadium to attend the Royals first playoff game in 29 years, I knew I was in for something special. I didn't know what would happen, but I was going to be able to say that I was there. I knew that if the Royals won that game, there would be far more than 40,000 or so who would say they were there, but that's fine because I knew I actually would be...

Is There A MVP In Missouri?

For the first time in almost three decades, the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals are still playing baseball after 162 games. Both teams have earned the right to play postseason baseball. The question remains if there is one player that either team can credit for that. The St. Louis Cardinals probably have the most clear-cut case for a MVP on their roster. No doubt...

I Was Wrong

I said Ned Yost would never be the manager of a playoff team.I said Dayton Moore would never build a playoff team.I said the James Shields trade was understandable, but it was silly because he didn't make the team good enough to make the playoffs.I said this particular Royals team was done about 14 different times.I said Danny Duffy was probably better suited as a reliever.I...

Royals win 6-3 over White Sox, inch closer to postseason glory

On a night when the Royals could have given up ground in the battle for Grass Creek (Seattle won 7-5), they instead held their ground by defeating the Chicago White Sox 6-3. The night wasn't without its perils. The Royals opened the scoring in the first inning. After a Lorenzo Cain double, Eric Hosmer squeaked a grounder through the shift to score Cain. I feel like a normal...

One win is all the Royals need for a seat at the postseason table
