Pilot to Bombardier! Royals Win on a Flurry of Solo Homers, 8-4

Kansas City went from one hitter friendly park to another. The difference? They won in this one. The Royals ended their four-game skid with an 8-4 victory over the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field on Friday. Kansas City had not won a baseball game since last Saturday against the Cardinals, and were looking for any sort of way to turn their luck. They did so against Cubs number two...

Royals Look to Sweep the All-Star Game

When the Kansas City Royals won the American League in 2014, it did more than just end a 29 year drought of futility. It caused a bit of a wave. Teams and fans were forced to take notice that the team that had long stood as the punching bag was now in the position they themselves longed to be in. Being in the World Series is an incredible feat that puts the contestants in full...

Bronx Bombarded: Royals Slammed by Yankees, 14-1

When your starting pitcher gives up more home runs than he gets outs, you know you’re in for a long day. Jeremy Guthrie gave up three 3-run homers and a 2-run home run before recording an out in the second inning. The fact that the Yankees only scored 14 runs today is unbelievable, considering the Kansas City bullpen threw seven innings in relief today. Really, I’m just...

Royals Take Rain-Shortened Game Two, Beat Cardinals 3-2

So it looks the Royals aren’t “Little Brother” anymore, huh? The Saint Louis Cardinals have now lost five of the last six to the Kansas City Royals. Since Edinson Volequez’s three inning implosion on May 7th, he’s thrown eighteen innings, and has only allowed six earned runs, including tonight’s six-inning performance against the Cardinals. The Royals only got five...

Salvador Perez Spilling Some Water on Lorenzo Cain’s Head

I have to imagine that one day Lorenzo Cain will blow up (for real) at Salvador Perez for the shenanigans he pulls on him. You can only be pranked so many times before it gets old, right? But hopefully that day never comes, because the “Perez-Cain Show” is easily baseball’s second-best bromance behind Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre. Salvador brought us a new episode today...

Salvador Perez is Still Annoying Lorenzo Cain

There aren’t many people fond of the headhunting Kansas City Royals these days. They’ve morphed from the team that hasn’t won anything in forever to the team with their own version of an NWO video: (All of this because of a Brett Lawrie slide…) However, in the clubhouse they’re still the fun, lovable bunch from last season. Just check out Salvador Perez’s Instagram...

Monitoring Salvador Perez’s Workload

For better or worse, the Kansas City Royals have garnered a fair amount of attention to start the season. On the better side of the ledger, the team now sits at 10-3, with the second best record in the American League behind only the 11-2 Detroit Tigers. Even finishing a game over .500 the rest […]

Crazy 8th Pushes Kansas City to 7-0 as they Down the Twins, 12-3

7-0? Yeah, 7-0.   After embarrassing the Angels in a three-game series, they traveled up north to Minnesota to face a Twins team that has only one win on the season. There aren’t very many words to describe the Twins’ performance today, but they  were about four elephants short of a three-ring circus.   Like the last few games, the opposition scored a leadoff...

Royals Sweep Halos, Take Game Three 9-2

Last year, it took Kansas City twenty games to hit eight home runs. This season, it took only six games. The Royals even added one more long-ball today as tensions flared when the Royals handled the Angels with relative ease to sweep them in three games. Sounds familiar, right?   After notching a series win yesterday with their number five starter, Jeremy Guthrie, the Royals...

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.
