Royals' Moustakas finding ways to beat defensive shifts

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Everyone in the Royals' dugout was hanging on the top step when Mike Moustakas stepped to the plate Friday night.

One of the keys to the Royals’ hot start, of course, has been the offense of third baseman Mike Moustakas. When manager Ned Yost said before Opening Day that Moustakas would be hitting second in the batting order, there was plenty of wailing and gnashing of teeth, myself included. So far, Yost and Mosutakas have […]

Moustakas sends Royals to 6-5 victory over Twins

When Should You Start Believing in Mike Moustakas?

Mike Moustakas was supposed to be the Royals’ savior. When he came up in 2011 he was hailed as the second coming of George Brett, just like Alex Gordon in 2007, and Eric Hosmer earlier the same year. The hype around Moustakas was insane. The guy got a standing ovation when he hit the on-deck circle before his first at-bat. Talk about pressure on a young kid. As we all know,...

Boxscore Breakdown #5: The Moose is loose and must be stopped – Royals 6, Angels 4

Why can’t the Angels stop Mike Moustakas? This is a player that the rest of the league has had no problem containing since he broke into the league, yet the Angels can’t seem to solve the riddle that is Moose. He’s smashing homers against them. He’s making huge defensive plays. Heck, he even stole a bag in this game, probably just to mock the Angels. This isn’t a thing...
