Catching a Grunt Off Guard

Last week I wrote about meeting Frank White at a young age of 12 and this week I will share another chance encounter with a professional baseball player. This time we have to fast-forward from 12 year old me to 21 year old me. A lot had happened in those eight years, junior high, high school and half of college. The Royals went from being the kings of baseball to lowly Midwest...

No, it wasn’t a dream (or nightmare depending on your perspective). The Kansas City Royals are the defending AL pennant winners.

The Kansas City Royals Are For Real

The Kansas City Royals made their first postseason appearance in 29 years in 2014. They became the first team to win eight straight games to start a postseason and went all the way to game seven of the World Series with the tying run 90 feet away. Metrics are not exceedingly optimistic about the defending American League Champions in 2015. PECOTA projects the Royals to finish in...

Targeting No. 1 Buster Posey could be the exception, but it’s unlikely he’ll be around in Round 3. The position-scarcity patrol are unlikely to allow it. Generally, there...

Salvador Perez's value far from hidden to Royals

SURPRISE, Ariz. — We talk about value all the time in baseball. MVP awards. Free-agent prices. Service time accrual. Wins Above Replacement. Value is a component of them all. Major-league managers tend to look at players differently than the rest of us. They know intuitively which players on the lineup card — and in the other dugout — are absolutely essential to the business...

Early Thoughts on 2015 Royals

So a sinus attack has me awake in the middle of the night. I get to watch the game from September 30, 2014 – again – in its entirety – for the first time since I watched it on live TV. No, I wasn’t at the K that night. I am sure in 25 years the attendance for that game will be 200,000 – but I won’t be one of them. I attended ALDS 3, ALCS 4, WS 2. What a great post...

Finding Stats - Some Moneyball Fantasy Options

I'm just as guilty as anyone. Draft Day has arrived, you are prepared and you feel excited about your first few picks. Then come the middle rounds and all the elite talent is gone. You're on the clock and at some point in the draft you will freeze and pick a guy based on his name. A safe well known player across the league. Use these precious picks on pitching, closers or a position...

A Look at the Royals Defense in 2015

  Durham Bulls fictional manager Joe “Skip” Riggins once said, “This is a simple game. You throw the ball, you hit the ball, you catch the ball.” The 2015 Royals will definitely be expected to catch the ball. When Alex Gordon, Salvador Perez and Eric Hosmer all take the field it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that these guys can play a little defense. All...

Do the Indians have the best catching duo in the American League?

Yan Gomes admitted during Tribe Fest that he was leery the first half of last season about taking days off due to the Indians' lack of a consistent backup at catcher. Carlos Santana played in 10 games behind the plate, but that ended once he suffered a concussion in late May. George Kottaras was up briefly a couple times and had a two home-run game. It wasn't until early July though...

Player Profile #156: Salvador Perez | C | KC

I’m a Red Sox fan. Most years that’s a good thing, but last year that was a very bad thing. My fandom meant that I spent most of 2014 without much vested interest in what was happening each day. Sure, I always want the Yankees to lose, but they weren’t much of a threat to win last year anyway. Really, what was there for me to root for? Up until the Royals’ late-season run...
