Mixed Bag

  A mixture of Kansas City Royals news, opinion and links from other quality baseball sources. Throwin' Change - What else can be said about Ventura's first start other than marvelous, superb, brilliant and whatever else you want to say. The best part of it was that he was so willing to throw his change up. He dominated the offense the way a guy with his talent has the ability to dominating righties wi ...

Mixed Bag

Ervin Santana?  - This week it was rumored the Blue Jays are taking themselves out of the running on Santana leaving the Yankees and M's as possibly the only suitors left.  To say his agent overplayed his hand early in the offseason is somewhat of an understatement at this point and Santana it looks like is going to be stuck accepting possibly less money than Ricky Nolasco, Matt Garza and Ubaldo Jimenez had ...

Performance Evaluation: Spring Games

It is early in the spring which means any evaluation of the team at this point is premature but I'll highlight a couple of performances that I think standout thus far. Big Ups Donnie Joseph - The left-handed relief pitcher is somewhat of a underdog to win a battle in the Royals bullpen but that doesn't mean he isn't the most talented candidate for the job.  The lefty used just 15 pitches to strikeout Brando ...

The Process: Most Valuable Royals Under 25

On the surface an exercise like this can look rather easy, grab all the players under 25, rate them dependent on talent and toss in but it isn't in my DNA to not weigh risk along with ceiling to make such a list.  When you toss in a player's current level, possibility of not reaching their ceiling and then add in positional scarcity, in the majors and the org, my list turns out much different than that of J ...

Offensive Improvement Will Key Success In 2013

Although the discussion over the last two weeks has revolved around the rotation, if the Royals expect to catch the Tigers next season they are going to have to see as much (if not more) improvement from their lineup. The Royals, as a team, finished 8th in the AL in pitching WAR, due in large part to the strength of their bullpen. A bullpen which, with the exception of one three-hundred pound individual, re ...

Is Salvador Perez’s Contract Baseball’s Best?

For a long time, Tampa Bay 3B Evan Longoria's contract was considered "the best in baseball," due to his outstanding play and how cheap the contract was. However, Longoria's contract is about to get expensive, and the title may soon pass him. Which brings up the question of whether Salvador Perez may soon have this distinction. Over the next seven years, assuming all of the club options on the back end are ...

Salvador Perez suffers torn meniscus

Via Mike Swanson's twitter Salvador Perez suffered a torn meniscus in his left knee. It is not known how long it will take for Perez to come back just yet. Alex Rodriguez suffered a similar injury in August of last season and was out about 5 weeks. Salvador as a large catcher probably has to deal with more wear and tear than ARod meaning the Royals should probably take it easy especially in a non-compete se ...

Royals Positional Depth Charts – Catcher

  @ClintScoles Heading into last season it would have been a pretty simple proposition to line up an organizational depth chart at each position considering the Royals had the #1 farm system based primarily on the strength at the top. A year later with the graduation of 9 different prospects the organization looks much different but despite that large number of graduations the farm system was still rat ...
