Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   Kansas City fell three runs shy of sweeping the Cleveland Indians as Yordano Ventura made yet another lackluster start. In four prior starts, Ventura has showed much concern, and has only had two quality starts thus far. Yordano Ventura has not been that “ace” that everyone has dubbed him, and has been a very average pitcher.   Through the first couple of innings, it was really looking...

Mike Moustakas 4-5, Royals Top Indians, 6-2

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   To say that Kansas City was in desperate need for a win after a back-to-back losses might be a bit of a stretch.

Cognitive Dissonance

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com This is what the national baseball media has when it comes to the Royals.  The Royals are a bad team, you see. But they are now 98-64 in their last 162 games.
