Worcester's Tim Collins In ALCS With Royals

Worcester's Tim CollinsSince most of our readers are pulling for the Kansas City Royals this post-season, we thought it would be appropriate to point out that at least one local guy could be a key component of their march to a world championship. Tim Collins—the pride of Worcester Technical High School—will be a left-handed weapon out of the Royals bullpen in the upcoming...

ALDS Game 1 Notes and Random Musings

  So after the most exciting game in the history of baseball – more on that later in tonight's notes – we have the "hangover" game that starts the ALDS. I have thoughts as to why it worked so well and what baseball could do to make more of these. The other games in the postseason haven't been compelling, and yes, they weren't close, but that's...

Royals fall, but now assured of home playoff game after Oakland loses

CHICAGO, Ill. -- Needless to say, the mood in the Royals' clubhouse Saturday night wasn't the same as the previous night. The Royals missed a great chance to pull into a tie with first-place Detroit, which got hammered by Minnesota. But the Royals and Danny Duffy fell into a quick 4-0 hole and could not catch the White Sox in a 5-4 loss, though the Royals battled back with...

Ned’s Strategy Works as Bullpen Shines in 7-4 win over Angels

“Oh no”, I thought when Tim Collins trotted out for the 10th inning of the Royals’ Saturday night tilt against the Los Angeles Angels. “I QUIT” was the message that I sent to the Royals official Twitter account when Ned Yost put Aaron Crow in the game for the 11th. The argument is still out there on whether Ned Yost’s strategy of saving closer Greg Holland until his...

Royals can't catch a break in disheartening 12-inning loss to Padres

The Royals have to be wondering now what they have to do to win a game. The Royals dropped their fifth straight in the most painful fashion, 6-5 to the Padres on Monday night in 12 innings. This likely was the most distressing loss of the season. The Royals had leads of 3-0, 4-3 and 5-4 before a two-run double by Will Venable rallied the Padres to the win. Mike Moustakas had given...

Kansas City Royals Bullpen Returns to Winning Ways

by John Viril— The Kansas City Royals bullpen has mowed down opponents for the last week. As a team, the bullpen hasn’t given up an earned run in its last 18.1 IP.  They haven’t surrendered a run since allowing two unearned tallies in Wade Davis‘ blown save one week ago against Minnesota (also Kansas City’s last loss).
