Mooooose! Check out these cool Royals bobbleheads for 2015

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Admit it: Most of the time when you look at a bobblehead, you are slightly amused by the resemblance -- or lack thereof -- to the player or coach being depicted. And after that, you typically don't give it another thought. Well, the Royals' 2015 bobblehead editions are bound to hold your attention just a tad longer. Specifically, the bobbleheads of third baseman...

A peek back at eight overlooked moments of Royals' magical playoff run

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- We know about all the fantastic and heart-stopping plays from the Royals' magical 2014 playoff run. We remember the Sal Perez game-winner down the left-field line against Oakland in the Wild Card game.

2014 Royals Offense vs. 2015 Royals Offense

I've said this enough times now that it should be engrained in your heads, but the Royals offense is going to have to be better in 2015 than it was in 2014 if they want to repeat the success of 2014. Why is that? The starting rotation isn't likely to be as good. Sure, you can look at Danny Duffy and hope for 200 innings at the level he gave 140. You can look at Yordano Ventura and...

Player Profile #143: Lorenzo Cain | OF | KC

Scouting report after scouting report makes mention of how excellent Lorenzo Cain’s bat speed is. When he was just breaking into the league in 2010 as a 24-year-old outfielder, the 6’2 Cain was a speedy, defense-first player with raw tools and some projectable pop. Five years later, that pop hasn’t arrived. Cain has hit just 17 HR in his 1,369 career PA, or one homer every...

Royals Core Needs to Be Better

As the off-season for the Kansas City Royals progresses, it occurs to me that we've talked a lot about how the Royals can not only repeat their success but improve on it. That makes sense. That's what off-seasons are for really. It's a time to dream about how your team can succeed. Success, of course, is relative. It wasn't long ago that we looked at success for the Royals as a ...

Kansas City Royals rumors: Colby Rasmus edition

Colby Rasmus could be a good edition to the ballclub in 2015 (bluebirdbanter.com). The Kansas City Royals search for a right fielder continues as the month of December begins.

Indians named Fangraphs “Far too early sleeper team” for 2015

Though we’re still a few months away from the first glove pops of spring training, Fangraphs has gone ahead and named the Cleveland Indians as their “far too early sleeper team” for the 2015 season.

Royals Take World Series Lead With 3-2 Win Over Giants At AT&T Park
