These Royals Ain’t So “Bad”

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   With the Royals heading back to Toronto to contend with the Blue Jays for the ALCS, there is a feeling of returning to the scene of the crime. Earlier this season, the two teams were at odds and cleared the benches. When Royals starter Edinson Volquez plunked Josh Donaldson and then nearly did it again later in the game, it set off tensions in both dugouts. Jose Bautista went so far as...

Should You Really Doubt the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   What’s the point in doubting the Royals anymore? Going into the ALDS, there were some major doubters of the Royals. Having just finished up a below .500 September, very few thought they could hold their own like they did last year in the playoffs. Many even went as far as to say that Kansas City would be swept in three games by the young Houston Astros team. With a terrible loss in the first game,...

#ThrowbackThursday: Reliving the 1985 ALCS

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   The Royals and Blue Jays will meet in the American League Championship Series starting Friday.  We take a look back at the two teams match-up in 1985.   Before Darryl Motley’s home run; before Bret Saberhagen’s stellar series that led to his World Series MVP; before Don Denkinger’s famous call, the Royals had to get to the World Series.  The Royals would win the American...

Royals play for keeps

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Whether it was accidental or intentional, Houston Astros rookie pitcher Lance McCullers made a mistake of poking the sleeping bear. Eric Hosmer's signature move is putting on the backpack. Put on the straps and then tighten it over the shoulders. At the end, there's a little shoulder shrug. It's become rather popular, Salvy and Drew even pulled off a synchonized backpack earlier...

Marlins Man Pays it Forward in KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Last October, Royals fans at home were in wonderment of just who that "guy in the bright orange" was behind home plate on their TV sets. Surrounded by a sea of blue, his contrast stuck out like a sore thumb. It had been rumored that Royals ownership had even tried to no avail at moving him from such a prominent location . For the first nationally televised Royals postseason games in 30 years, this...

Royals Comeback and Force Game 5

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The date was Monday, October 12, 2015. The time was 3 pm Central Time. The preparation for the Kansas City Chiefs (and Jamaal Charles’ knee) funeral, who died on Sunday, the Royals were nearing the same fate. Sure death was upon them. On the heels of arguably the worst sports weekend in recent memory – the Royals lost Game 3 of the ALDS at Houston and the Chiefs blew an 11-point lead in the final 5...

The Royals Need Hosmer to be Hosmer Again

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com I’ve said it once. I’ve said it twice. Now I will say it thrice. The Kansas City Royals go as far as the bat of Eric Hosmer takes them. When the grand story of the 2014 postseason run is told, people often wax poetically about the emergence of Mike Moustakas, the clutch hitting of Salvador Perez (other than that last out of the World Series thing), the fearless Runnin’ Royals, the Billy Butler...
