DraftKings: Bloopers

I hate bloop singles. I despise watching my pitcher give up a run because a guy got jammed up inside and sent it between first base and left field. It doesn’t even feel right when my guy who is 0-3 on the day (trust me, this happens often) drops one between the infielders and outfielders on a lucky blooper. Sometimes though, it takes a blooper or 2 to have success… Like my 2...

Breaking Down The Chicago White Sox Fight Video

The bench clearing brawl that took place last night between the Chicago White and Kansas City Royals has quickly made it’s way around the Internet. With the hype of the NHL and NBA playoffs keeping most of Chicago’s attention, baseball is more of an after thought at this point. Unless you’re a Cubs fan. Anyway… When you think of the phrase “Chicago White Sox fight”...

Goose’s Take – Bubba Starling, Bad Royals Pitching and the Amazing Lorenzo Cain

The Royals dropped the final game of the series to the Twins, though they did still manage to win the series. The depressing thing is, 3 of their 4 losses have come at the hands of the Twins. Thats how baseball goes sometimes I guess.     -Bubba Starling is getting the call to head to AA NW Arkansas. His numbers have looked a little funny all year, primarily because of his...

GMDM and the Unsung Trade

During his tenure with the Royals GMDM has made some big moves that have had some big results.  This season alone bringing in players like Kendrys Morales, Edinson Volquez, and Alex Rios are all making Moore look like a maven.  Then you think back to the Zack Greinke trade that brought us Lorenzo Cain, and Alcides Escobar, or the Wil Meyers trade that brought us Wade Davis...

Salvador Perez is Still Annoying Lorenzo Cain

There aren’t many people fond of the headhunting Kansas City Royals these days. They’ve morphed from the team that hasn’t won anything in forever to the team with their own version of an NWO video: (All of this because of a Brett Lawrie slide…) However, in the clubhouse they’re still the fun, lovable bunch from last season. Just check out Salvador Perez’s Instagram...

Which of these hot hitters can remain above average?

The 2015 season is barely two weeks old, but we’ve already witnessed a mass outpouring of offensive firepower from a few select hitters. Big names like Mike Trout, Miguel Cabrera and Paul Goldschmidt are already atop the WAR leaderboards, but what about the not-so prominent hitters? Let’s take a look at a handful of non-star players who are riding incredible hot streaks to start...

Havin’ some fun at the Ole Ball Game

The weekend series between the Kansas City Royals and Oakland Athletics will be one not soon forgotten by anyone on either side of the match, and probably Major League Baseball as well.  Things were done, things were said, and things will probably happen because of all of this, but the lasting impression is that if you don't start a fight, there typically won't be a fight. ...

Tensions High as Royals Come From Behind to Take Series

In the season's first 10 games, Royals players were hit by a whopping 14 pitches.

WATCH: Royals-A's game filled with more ejections

The Kansas City Royals have a problem with the Oakland Athletics, and one beanball from Yordano Ventura to Brett Lawrie wasn’t going to fix that. In the first inning of Sunday’s game at Kauffman Stadium, Scott Kazmir plunked Lorenzo Cain (it looked accidental since if you’re going to throw at someone, you don’t throw at their feet, but whatever). Home plate umpire Greg...

Lorenzo Cain Hints at the Next Step

With certain players, you just don’t get the usual questions. Lorenzo Cain is one of them. By our numbers, last year, Cain was just about a five-win center fielder. In large part, this was powered by a Defense rating close to +20. UZR and DRS both absolutely loved him, and frequently that magnitude of statistical […]

Super Cain Saves

  In the 2nd inning of his first start for the Kansas City Royals, Edison Volquez threw a high fastball to Adam LaRoche. LaRoche, a left-handed power threat, turned on the heater, hammering toward the right-centerfield gap. As soon as Volquez heard the crack of the bat, his shoulders slumped slightly with a split-second feeling of dread. His body language said it all, he thought...
