Infante should stabilize second base for Royals

Second base has been a revolving door lately for the Kansas City Royals. So much so that Miguel Tejada started 22 games at second base for the Royals in 2013. To put that in perspective, Tejada had four career starts at second base in 14 previous seasons and over 1900 games. But Kansas City was desperate for someone to fill in at the key infield spot. The Royals tried six different...

The four horsemen of the Oakland Athletics

These aren't your Athletics of a decade ago, when their division champion teams were loaded with stars like Jason Giambi, Miguel Tejada, Eric Chavez, Barry Zito, Mark Mulder, and Tim Hudson. Only one member of the 2013 A's was as much as a four win player, and only three others joined him in being a three win guy. Thus, it's simultaneously difficult and easy to choose...

A-Rod and Tejada have turned the golden age of shortstops into fool's gold

Remember the golden age of shortstops? It was from the late 90s into the early 2000s, and shortstops were no longer slick-fielding pipsqueaks who struggled to hit 10 home runs or slug .350.  OK, Cal Ripken, Alan Trammell and Barry Larkin probably deconstructed that perception of shortstops years earlier. Not only were they excellent fielders, but could put up MVP-caliber numbers...

Which Royals team will show up against Detroit?

It was a matter of time before the Kansas City Royals would lose a series after the All-Star break. And I’m not surprised it was against the lowly Miami Marlins. That’s the way baseball works.
