Mooooose! Check out these cool Royals bobbleheads for 2015

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Admit it: Most of the time when you look at a bobblehead, you are slightly amused by the resemblance -- or lack thereof -- to the player or coach being depicted. And after that, you typically don't give it another thought. Well, the Royals' 2015 bobblehead editions are bound to hold your attention just a tad longer. Specifically, the bobbleheads of third baseman...

What the numbers say about Hosmer and Moose…and, it’s not good

      Eight Royals are up for arbitration. The most talked is the corner infield duo of Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas. Hosmer asked for $6.7 million and Moustakas $3.1 million. They want to get paid…and who can blame them? We certainly don’t. But, the question is are they worth their respective requests? Apparently, even suggesting that the duo...

The 11 biggest homers of the 2014 Postseason

The 2014 season is now in the rear-view mirror following a phenomenal Postseason. This October, we saw close games and we saw blowouts. We saw games won on throwing errors, and games won on dramatic home runs. The second part of that sentence is what we’re most interested in – those dramatic home runs that sent chills down our spines. These are the most important, most clutch...

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.

Large Antlers Not Enough To Rally Royals In World Series Opener (Photo)

The Kansas City Royals and their fans experienced the World Series on Tuesday for the first time since 1985. Things didn’t go as planned, as the San Francisco Giants rolled to a 7-1 win over James Shields and the Royals.

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. Last week, when the Kansas City Royals won their eighth consecutive playoff game, plenty were ready to crown them already. Then, like clockwork, the narratives began. Ranging from, “They are a team of destiny,” to, “This...

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...
