Royals Minor Moves

The Kansas City Royals made a few moves yesterday moving players in and off their minor league clubs. AAA Johnny Giavotella to Omaha - If you would have asked me prior to spring if this was a surprise I would have told you emphatically no but considering Omar Infante's injury I am a tad shocked they didn't wait.  After all Gio has had a good spring, Jason Donald is without options and exposing him after Inf ...

The Process – A Hole 2b

The Royals as we know have a thin margin for error in regards to the 2013 season and in the future.  While there are weaknesses in the rotation, unknowns all over the infield and outfield the most glaring weakness to the team is at second base.  Lets look at the possible options the Royals have in the org currently. Chris Getz - The leader in the clubhouse as they say in more ways than one is a very weak op ...

The 25th Man: On the 25th Man

The 25th Man on a Major League roster is not meaningless, but rarely do we see the 25th man contribute significantly to the club.  Usually, the countdown to the 25th man is the last vestige of the off-season; a fan's last opportunity to question the wisdom of the decision makers before the team breaks camp and heads north for Opening Day. We have a player in limbo, a player  whose use is entirely dependent ...

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 ...

Royals Recap 5.30; Royals down Indians behind Chen, Pen and Gio

Things weren't looking good for Bruce Chen Wednesday after struggling in the opening innings of the series finale with Cleveland. Chen's biggest problem came in the second where the Indians started the inning off with singles allowed to Shelly Duncan and Michael Brantley.  Casey Kotchman who seemingly always runs into a big hit versus the Royals would come through with a soft single into right that got down ...

But whatever it is the Royals are trying to accomplish with Johnny Giavotella right now‚ĶI don‚Äôt see it. To recap: Gio is called up last August and proceeds to post a less-than-stellar .247/.273/.376 line with 2 home runs and 21 RBIs ...
