Royals Fans Have Another Chance To Do Something Good

Royals Twitter is an amazing place. Sure, it gets a bad rap sometimes. Remember the outrage when Omar Infante almost got voted into the All-Star Game? There were also some milder protests from other fanbases and national media types when Mike Moustakas won the final spot for the All-Star Game thanks in large part to […]

LORD OF THE CROWNS: RETURN OF THE ACE? Yordano “Ace” Ventura K’s 11 as Royals rebound.

Kansas City, Mo. – After a 1 hour and 35 minute rain delay, Ace Ventura (with the win now 9-7) not only took the mound, but he owned it. He struck out a career high 11 batters (9 via curveball) in just 6 innings while walking 4 and allowing only 2 hits as the Royals got back in the win column 5-3 over the Baltimore Orioles Thursday afternoon in front of 31,155 screaming fans.

What do the Kansas City Royals Really Have in Mike Moustakas?

I originally wrote the bulk of this article on August 14, 2015. Moose was mired in an awful, awful slump. Since that time, he has gone .317 / .488 / .732 over 41 AB with 4 HR, 5 doubles, 11 RBI, 7 BB, and only 3 K. As a result, which often happens when researching for a piece for Royals Blue (numbers sure do have a way of messing up irrational opinions), my tone shifted. It is no...

Orioles-Royals Preview

The Kansas City Royals look poised to return to the AL Championship Series with the league's best record and a 12 1/2-game lead in the Central. The Baltimore Orioles have a much more difficult path to get back into position to play for the pennant. These teams meet for the first time since last year's playoffs when they open a four-game series Monday night at Kauffman Stadium. Kansas...

Since DL stint, when Duffy starts, Royals usually win

Kansas City Royals left-hander Danny Duffy's record since coming off the disabled list in late June is 4-2. But the Royals are 8-2 in those games -- and hoping to go to 9-2 after Duffy's start Thursday night in Boston. Only two major league pitchers -- and no American Leaguers -- have enjoyed a higher winning percentage since the start of last month than Duffy. While the Royals enter...

Kansas City Royals keeping window of opportunity open

After an exciting postseason run followed by a devastating loss in game seven of last year's fall classic, many expected the Kansas City Royals to regress in 2015.  If the heartbreak of falling one win shy of clinching a World Series title in front our their home crowd wasn't enough to haunt the Royals, other teams across the league began to stockpile talent this past winter to...

The Kansas City Royals have solidified Trap Queen by Fetty *** as the song of the summer.Apparently, some Royals players, including Mike Moustakas, Eric Hosmer and Lorenzo Cain, have taken it upon themselves to make sure that the lyric "1738" makes it into their postgame interviews:My only question is why stop there? 1738 is like the first line of the song.

Royals Take Series Behind Dominant Volquez

With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why? They were applauding Edinson Volquez and his nearly eight strong innings. The offense, featuring not one, but two, home runs, was able to provide enough run support.   It seems like there have been plenty of nights here lately where the Royals needed their...

Royals Drop Wild Opener Against the Pirates

Kansas City has played some wild, whacky, and long ballgames in the last week. On Friday, they played a day-night doubleheader, and on Saturday they played a thirteen inning marathon. Today’s game was wild, whacky, and long, but the Royals would not come out on top in a match that would last three-and-a-half hours.   Yordano Ventura started this game way back in the first...
