Score six and the Royals are golden

It makes sense that when you score six runs, you'll win most of the time. And in the case of the Kansas City Royals, whose solid starting pitching is supported by baseball's best bullpen, it should be almost automatic. Well, for the last year, it has been. Coming off an 8-2 win over the Mariners, the Royals have not lost a single game over the last year when scoring at least six...

Duffy Returns; Offense Leads the Way in 8-2 Series Win

Wednesday night marked the return of Danny Duffy, who was activating from the disabled list before the contest. He was sharp early, but was on a limited pitch count so only managed to go four and two-thirds innings while striking out four and issuing one earned run. Part of the reason Duffy has had struggles in the past was in the control department, so it was positive to see him...

Stuffing the Ballot Box: The MLB’s Royal Problem

On Monday, MLB released the fourth voting update for the 2015 All-Star Game, causing fans in Detroit, Toronto, Cleveland, and other American League cities across the country to roll their eyes.

If AL All-Star ballots hold then the lineup will suffer

It looks like the American League will not get home-field advantage in the World Series this year. The genius of the All-Star voting continues and continues to provide a subpar line-up. The Kansas City Royals only have one player batting .300 and that is Mike Moustakas. It’s the All-Star Game and that means the best pitchers in baseball will be on the mound. This is not the best...
