  • Royals Ride Big First Inning to Win Fifth Straight Game, 7-2 over White Sox

    14 June 2014

    Dale Sveum strikes again. The Royals erupted for a five-run first inning to support Jeremy Guthrie en route to their fifth straight victory, a 7-2 win over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night. With the Detroit Tigers’ loss to Minnesota, Kansas City...

  • Royals Blast Three Home Runs, Cool Off Indians 9-5

    11 June 2014

    347 days. That’s how long it had been since Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas, once viewed as power-hitting prospect phenoms destined to clobber 30+ homers each season, homered in the same game. Both Hosmer and Moustakas, along with Alex Gordon, went deep...

  • Break Out the Brooms, Royals Beat Tribe, 4-1 to Sweep Series

    11 June 2014

    With every pitch thrown from the golden arm of Yordano Ventura, I held my breath. With every out he made, I exhaled just a tiny bit. I am still very nervous that Yordano will go down with the dreaded Tommy John injury. The offense was quiet on both sides...

  • Royals Can't Bat Gordon Nine Times, Lose 4-2 to Yankees

    07 June 2014

    I tried to come up with a witty hook to intro this article, or find a cool stat to intro this recap with. This game was so dull that I forgot I was on recap duty until the thought of what Sarah would do to me jolted me awake two hours after the game ended....

  • Royals Up-End Sox, 9-1 to Extend Win-Streak to Six

    14 June 2014

    Michael Mariot always ruins my titles. Coming into today, the Royals were 1-9 in day games this year. Trying to extend their win-streak, they sent out Danny Duffy to keep things going. In his career, Duffy is 1-0 with a 2.35 ERA. Danny Duffy is returning...

  • Lucky Seven: Streaking Royals Finish Sweep of White Sox 6-3

    15 June 2014

    In Sunday afternoon’s series finale with the White Sox, the Royals had three RISP opportunities. Chicago had 14. With the way the streaking Royals are playing right now, it didn’t matter. Kansas City hit two more home runs and swept away the White Sox...

  • Royals Survive Crazy 9th to Beat Tigers, 11-8

    16 June 2014

    While everybody else in the U.S seemed to be watching the World Cup, Kansas Citians gathered everywhere to watch their Royals try and tame the Detroit Tigers. For those of you that did not watch, sit back, and I will fill you in. Oh, well... The Royaling...

  • How it Feels to Wake up in First Place

    18 June 2014

    If you didn't know, the Kansas City Royals now sit atop the AL Central after nabbing first place from the Detroit Tiggers, (I meant Tigers, but did I really?) Yesterday, I wrote an article for another website that I write for, and you can all check that...

  • Royals end Winning Streak, Lose 2-1 to Detroit

    19 June 2014

    It was the news that Alex Gordon was a late scratch from the lineup that sent the fans of Kansas City into panic mode. It was not until later in the first inning when the fans were nothing short of an anxiety attack that analyst Steve Physioc announced...

  • Seattle vs Kansas City: Series Preview

    19 June 2014

    The 'Red-hot Royals' are coming home to face the 'Mediocre Mariners' for a three game set, and expectations are high for this first place Kansas City team. Game one: James Shields ( 8-3, 3.50) vs. Hisashi Iwakuma ( 5-3, 2.59 ERA) The Royals will look...

  • Welcome Back, Zack: Royals Beat Dodgers 5-3

    24 June 2014

    Welcome back, Zack! The Royals roughed up their former teammate for five earned runs in just 5.2 innings. The fans of Kansas City certainly did not give Zack Greinke a warm welcome. The same can be said for the guys we traded for him. Lorenzo Cain had...

  • Balks, HBP's, and Line-Out Double Plays: Dodgers Clip Royals 5-4

    26 June 2014

    Lorenzo Cain stepped up to the plate in the bottom of the ninth. With the Royals trailing 5-4, the tying run was in scoring position, and a lousy single against troubled Dodger reliever Brian Wilson would surely tie the game. “Hopefully he can line one...

  • Fire and Rain Don't Mix: Royals Fall Miserably to Angels

    28 June 2014

    This game was absolutely miserable. There were so many things wrong with this game. Where do I begin? First of all, The Kansas City Royals are the worst at managing rain delays. After a four-hour rain delay, there might have been 1,000 people left in...

  • Cain, Infante Lead The Royals Over Angels 5-4

    29 June 2014

    Things got off to a roaring start today... For the Angels. A lead off homerun to Cole Kalhoun was not the least of our problems. A fielding error by Lorenzo Cain would lead to the Angels second run of the game. More errors would cost the Royals in the...

  • Royals First Half Breakdown

    30 June 2014

    The Kansas City Royals have reached the halfway point at 42-39. The season thus far has been a let down, for me at least. The Royals headed into May at 14-12, but things would head south. Kansas City would saunter through the month winning a mere twelve...

  • Welcome Back Raul

    30 June 2014

    The Kansas City Royals announced on Monday that they have signed former Royal, Raul Ibanez to a major league deal. Let me see if I can go back into the deep, dark crevices of my brain to recollect a player from my early childhood. Ah, yes. Raul was a...

  • Royals Drop Game 2, 4-3

    09 July 2014

    I really don't even know where to begin. I guess I'll start with Jason Vargas. Entering tonight, Jason Vargas was the proud owner of a 1.52 road ERA. I'd say that it went up just a smidge. It was not a horrible start by any means. Just short of a quality...

  • Detroit at Kansas City: Series Preview

    10 July 2014

    ****Every good Samaritan in the Kansas City metro area is anxiously awaiting the news on Alex Gordon's wrist. If indeed the all star left fielder does need a DL stint, I will update accordingly. Let's pray that I will not have to update. ***** The Detroit...

  • Royals Upended, Drop Game One 16-4

    11 July 2014

    Another one of those, "Where do I begin?" games. I guess I'll start with pitching. Jeremy Guthrie was very Jonathan Sancez-esque tonight. I would've said Aaron Brooks, but it was not THAT bad. Guthrie finished his night after four innings. Guthrie allowed...

  • Royals Ride Big Seventh Inning, Win Game 5-2

    13 July 2014

    Round one of Verlander vs. Chen goes to Yordano Ventura. Technically, Yordano Ventura got the win, but Bruce Chen gave us 5.1 innings of decent work. In his first start off the DL, Chen only allowed two earned runs, and struck out two batters. While this...

  • Kansas City at Boston: Series Preview

    18 July 2014

    Kansas City will head into Beantown hopefully feeling relaxed and ready to go. The Royals will need to have another spectacular run down the stretch in order for their postseason dreams to stay alive. Game 1: James Shields (9-5, 3.65 ERA) vs. Clay Bucholz...

  • Batting Practice Doesn't Translate as White Sox Beat Royals 3-1

    22 July 2014

    "I think we’ve got guys who can definitely hit for power. If you don’t believe me, just watch BP.” -Ned Yost Well, Royals fans.... We're not far from Rock Bottom. Actually, we're two games from Rock Bottom, but don't worry. Dayton Moore still thinks that...

  • Aoki, Butler Lead Royals Over Tribe, 7-5

    27 July 2014

    In the middle of the second inning, I thought the game was over. The Indians had a five run lead, and the offense looked to be dormant. Kansas City started chipping in the third inning, and tied it in the fourth. Carlos "The One Man Wrecking Crew" Santana,...

  • Indians Salvage Series and Beat Chen, Royals 10-3 in Finale

    27 July 2014

    It can almost be expected when you remember that Ned Yost puts out his “white flag” lineup each and every Sunday. While the season finale loss was frustrating, Royals fans must remember to think about the big picture. Carlos Santana homered two more times...

  • Royals Edge Twins, Win 3-2

    31 July 2014

    It was looking like another game that would require Danny Duffy to throw a shut out just to even qualify for a win. Danny Duffy made one mistake pitch four innings of Wednesday's matchup against the Twins. Duffy left a fastball up to Josh Willingham,...
