Giles’ Rookie Season is Best Historically Among Phils Freshman

The resurrections of once top prospects Wade Davis (9-2, 3 saves, 0.93 ERA) and Andrew Miller (14.84 K/9 IP) have gotten a lot of attention, as has the meteoric rise of Yankees’ reliever Dellin Betances (1.33 ERA, 13.50 K/9 IP). Aroldis Chapman (2.20 ERA, 17.45 K/9 IP) is averaging...

RCL Update: A Trout in the Pot is Better Than a Stanton in the Sea

I'll be honest, I really wanted to do a title about Rudy. After having a top-7 pitching week and moving into the top-10 overall, I wanted to kiss some a*s to the other man in charge. It was supposed to be "Rudy Comfortable", a play on Rudy Huxtable, but then Grey told me to talk about you guys and four girl readers. I obliged and started looking at the top-10 and the...

Winning Time with Ned Yost

The Royals manager has shown this year that winning for the Royals is getting the lead after six innings and then turning the ball over to the PENitentiary in Kelvin Herrera, Wade Davis and Greg Holland. Shortening the game is the goal but Yost continues to construct the lineup like the team needs to be able to be flexible in the late innings. With so many players available to Yost...

Gross Negligence

Credit: Rick Osentoski We may have just reached critical mass on the Fire Ned Yost movement!   Evidence #1: Clinging to the slimest of leads in the 6th inning today, Ned could not deviate from his normal protocol to adapt to a situation.  With runners at 2nd and 3rd and 1 out Ned desperately needed a strikeout.  And coming up was a strikeout candidate Yoenis Cespedes.  Since...

Let’s talk about Wade Davis

Wade Davis has turned into one of the most dominant relievers in 2014 The love continues this week that I have given to the Kansas City Royals, and why not? The Royals seem post-season bound for the first time since 1985. Naturally, the Royals have captivated the baseball world with their run and there have been many reasons for this. Alex Gordon is the biggest reason but we’ve...

James Shields pitches Royals to 1-0 victory in series opener over Yanks

The formula still worked for the Royals, at least on this night. It was Wade Davis rather than Greg Holland locking down the ninth inning Friday at Yankee Stadium, but the result was the same. And as long as Holland’s triceps issue is as minor as the Royals said it was, they can look back on this 1-0 win over the Yankees as one of the more satisfying of an already satisfying season...

Playoffs or Bust for Royals in 2014

When this season began, a lot of people were asking the question of if there was any for the Royals to have a successful season without making the playoffs. Many people answered that there was not because the reason they made the trade sending Wil Myers, Jake Odorizzi, Mike Montgomery and Patrick Leonard to the Tampa Bay Rays for James Shields and Wade Davis was not to have winning...

Get To Know Him - Wade Davis

It's a little ridiculous that I have to do a get to know him on the best relief pitcher in baseball this year. I'm not sure if it's because he plays for the Kansas City Royals or because he is not a closer, but regardless everyone should know who this guy is and know what he has done this season.#453820324 / gettyimages.comWade Davis is pitching in his 6th MLB season...

Kansas City Royals Pitcher Wade Davis Does His Best Ricky 'Wild Thing' Vaughn

There are certain things that happen in movies you do not expect to ever see in a real baseball game. No one will ever drop down and do pushups after hitting a pop fly. You'll never see a pitch fly by the play by play man's head, and you will never see someone throw what would be a strike if the batter was the Jolly Green Giant.Okay, maybe that last one you will see.

Bullpen Report: Week 20

If there was a NBA Jam version for relievers, it would go to the Royals bullpen.  They are the hottest team since sliced pimento loaf, and as of this typing, are finding themselves tops in the AL Central.  I have said it before and I will say it again-- play the hot hand until it slaps you where it shouldn't.  They are led recently and not recently, as in all year, by Wade...

Royals Face Tough Bullpen Decision

If the Kansas City Royals have a lead in the sixth inning, it's a comforting sight to look into their bullpen and see both Greg Holland and Wade Davis beginning to stretch out as they know the eighth and ninth innings will be their time to control the game. When they come in, the game is more often than not, simply over. I saw people leaving Kauffman Stadium last week as the...
