Martino: Royals Might Look To Trade Alex Gordon

Andy Martino of the Daily News speculates that the Royals might listen to offers for outfielder Alex Gordon, first baseman Eric Hosmer and third baseman Mike Moustakas. He believes that due to each of their escalating salaries, the Royals may not be able to keep all three. “Gordon is the most interesting case, and the one who fits an opening for one of the New York teams.

Mike Moustakas: One-Game Threat

With the World Series shifting to San Francisco for Game 3, the Royals have made some changes to their lineup. They’re not starting anybody as the designated hitter, because that would be against the rules. Ned Yost has elected to start Jarrod Dyson over Nori Aoki, which seems like the right thing to do. And […]

Building a Wahoo Winner: Improve the defense

As Royals third baseman Mike Moustakas flipped over the rail and into the dugout as the baseball made its way seamlessly into his glove last Tuesday night amidst Game 3 of the ALCS, my mind wandered.

Destiny, Narrative, and the Kansas City Royals

When the 2014 World Series kicks off later on this evening, writers from all over the country will have to make the effort to tone down the narratives.

Mike Moustakas has gone from less than zero to playoff hero

It’s probably fitting that when the Kansas City Royals recorded their final out to head to the World Series for the first time since 1985 (consequently, also the last time they were even in the playoffs) that it was Mike Moustakas that threw out J.J. Hardy at first base to end it. It’s been a tumultuous season for the former top prospect, but his recent stretch in helping...
