Series Preview: Royals at Houston Astros, April 15-17

The Kansas City Royals, coming off one of the worst weekends they've had in awhile, head to Houston to take on the Astros who are improved, but still not good. Offensively, they can look good at times, but that's only because they do have some home run power on their squad, though a lot of that can be attributed to their ballpark. I do like the trio of Jason Castro, Jose Altuve and Dexter Fowler in their li ...

Morning Coffee: Royals Simply Must Beat the Beatable

The Kansas City Royals are coming off one of the most frustrating and, I'll say it, embarrassing series they've played since their terrible month of May last year. I know that seems like a relatively short amount of time, but for this team to have gone nearly a year without embarrassment in a series is actually quite long considering where the franchise has been. When they began their series against the Twi ...

Fans Will Complain, Worry When They Stop

It’s already happened. Less than 10 percent of the way through the season and a Royals announcer went on the air to complain about people complaining. The quote I saw attributed to Royals radio announcer - and sometimes TV announcer - Steve Physioc was, “It doesn’t help in today’s world of social media where everyone has an opinion.” To be 100 percent honest and upfront before we get going, I’ll admit I was ...

Throwin' Change - What else can be said about Ventura's first start other than marvelous, superb, brilliant and whatever else you want to say.

Series Preview: Royals at Minnesota Twins, April 11-13

The Kansas City Royals head to Minneapolis to take on their American League Central division rivals, the Minnesota Twins. A week and a half into the 2014 season, the Twins are in last place in the division and there on the weakness of their pitching staff. Offensively, the Twins are surprisingly not that bad, but some of it seems to be done with the help of both smoke and mirrors. That said, they actually h ...

Friday Notes

It's hard to believe that this is just the second edition of Friday Notes of the young Kansas City Royals season because it feels like we've been doing this for weeks already. I guess that's what happens when every game (or seemingly so) is a one run affair. Luckily the Royals had a bit of a laugher on Wednesday to take them into their off day before they face the Twins this weekend. It really is pretty ama ...

Morning Coffee: Royals Myths Debunked

Over the last 25 or so years, being a Kansas City Royals fan has been quite difficult as good players have come and gone and more often than not it seems, guys like Zack Greinke are replaced by guys like Luke Hochevar.  For years, the question wasn't if the Royals would finish under .500, but how far under .500 they'd finish. As someone who has been a Royals fan my entire life and having seen just one trip ...

Morning Coffee: Royals Need to be Aggressive This Year

The 2014 season hasn't exactly started as the Kansas City Royals had hoped even though it's obviously too early to read too much into the starts of guys like Mike Moustakas and Alcides Escobar. Still, this is a roster that has been generating more hype than just about any other Royals team I've seen in quite some time. That hype isn't entirely unfounded, though I think a lot of expectations for this team mi ...

Series Preview: Royals vs. Tampa Bay Rays, April 7-9

The Kansas City Royals welcome the Tampa Bay Rays into town for a three game series that will last from Monday, April 7 through Wednesday afternoon, April 9. I think by the end of the year, the Rays will be considered one of baseball's four or five best teams when it's all said and done. Let's start with the offense. The Rays can put some runs on the board, which is something they've struggled with in the p ...

Mixed Bag

Blue Rockin' - Great start to the season for Miguel Almonte and Hunter Dozier as the two powered the Blue Rocks to a season opening win.  The right-handed pitcher struck out three while walking a pair and hitting one batter but allowed just one hit in his time on the mound.  Inside the numbers the most impressive thing Almonte did was keep the ball down limiting Winston-Salem to eight ground outs (including ...

The Kansas City Royals open the home portion of their schedule against American League Central division rivals, the Chicago White Sox.

The White Sox offense has looked good over their first three games of the season, but I have my doubts ab ...
