The Prospect Depth Chart – Right Handed Pitchers

Pitching hasn't been a bright spot in the Royals system for quite sometime with the team struggling to develop the homegrown arms needed to compete in the AL Central.  While things haven't been good the current crop of right-handed arms in the system are looking deeper than they have in quite sometime.  One of things you may notice with this group of twelve is that many of them are from Latin America which ...

Thursday Thoughts

Jarrod Dyson vs Jeff Francoeur  The next time you complain about Dyson's lack of offense look to his right.  Dyson going into last nights game was carrying a .314 wOBA which hovers in the same range as speedsters Desmond Jennings (.318), Rajai Davis (.312) and BJ Upton (.311) as opposed to Jeff Francoeur's absolutely brutal .271.  To put that in perspective the Royals are getting Peter Bourjos level hitting ...

The Roster Crunch – Rule 5 and the Royals

It is August 21st 2012, Wil Myers currently leads the minor leagues in home runs with 34 and has put up a combined batting average in the neighborhood of .313 with a .390 on base percentage.  The future right fielder has dominated the minors while the Kansas City Royals current right fielder, Jeff Franceour, has struggled mightily.  Why isn't he up?  The answer may be as simple as the Royals are feeling a r ...

A Royals Opinion: A Winning rotation in 2013

The 2012 Royals rotation has been a disaster, there is no other way to describe it. Whether through injuries or just guys just plain old sucking, the rotation has easily been the Royals biggest weakness. However, like all things it can be fixed, unfortunately this is the Royals though and therefore nothing is easy. It will mean Dayton Moore will have to truly admit this is a problem and be both aggressive a ...

A Royals Opinion: Pitching, pitching, and more pitching

Use of Chen I am not a Bruce Chen fan and when he was signed in the off-season I Hated the move. Not because Chen had been a bad pitcher. No, he actually had been one of the more consistent pitchers for the Royals the previous years. It was because he was bound to regress, and he has regressed quite a bit so far this season. His ERA continues to move towards 6 while his ability to go deeper into games is fa ...

Royals Have Plenty To Sort Out In Second Half

I guess if you want to look at the bright side, that 3-8 road trip the Royals made us suffer through before the All-Star Break was good for one thing. It removed (or should have, anyway) any temptation for the Royals to make some desperate trade to boost their slim chances of winning the division. Yes, flags fly forever, but even if this Royals team had somehow made the playoffs, they likely would have been ...

The All-Star Experience: Kansas City Edition

Relevancy, it was nice knowing you.  You were equal parts refreshing and depressing, and in the span of five days you came and went.  You were refreshing because I still have rapidly fading memories of when the Kansas City Royals were a relevant MLB team.  I was too young to enjoy the golden years of Royals baseball in the late-70’s/early -80’s, but the game of baseball had me firmly in its grasp as a six y ...

A Royals Opinion: Ready for the Break

A Good Guys Worth With my crazy past week that including getting married and dealing with crazy comic book nerds, I had to sadly put the Royals on the backburner. Luckily the Royals made a move that brought out the crazy in fans. They released fan favorite Mitch Maier. Maier was a guy that was impossible to hate, nice guy who did everything he was asked. However he actually provided little gain to this Roya ...

Is Jake Odorizzi Ready?

To put it lightly, the starting pitching for the Kansas City Royals is not very good. There have been injuries, notably Danny Duffy and Felipe Paulino. There has been disappointments, specifically from Jonathan Sanchez and perennial underachiever Luke Hochevar. Then there has been the pitchers that just are not very good, like Luis Mendoza and Vin Mazzaro. All of this leads to a well below average pitching ...
