Royals Opening Day Roster Taking Shape — Who is Out, Who is In

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Outfielder Travis Snider was released just minutes ago as the Royals roster continues to trim down to it’s 25-man Opening Day limit (three spots still to be settled). But, most of the spots were settled before Spring Training even started. We are still trying to get used to that. We like it, though. Over the last few seasons, the Royals have changed the way pitching staffs are being used. Now, other teams...

Royals Once Again Labeled Bad Boys — Without Even Playing a Single Game

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   A national narrative reared it ugly head again with two of the laziest, misinformed, clickbait columns written this off-season regarding the new bad boys of baseball, The Kansas City Royals.     Early Tuesday morning, Marc Carig of New York Newsday wrote the Royals seek "retribution" for the high and tight offered by Noah Syndagaard to Alcides Escobar on the first pitch of...

A.L. Central Preview: The Cleveland Indians

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In 2015 the Cleveland Indians had a recipe for what many thought would be a playoff run.  The reigning Cy Young winner was at the helm of a good rotation in Corey Kluber, and one of the best managers in the game was running the show in Tito Francona.   They had a rising star coming off a break out season in Michael Brantley, and an all around team that should have pushed deep into October. ...

The Ring That Got Away: Finnegan Hopes for Another Chance With the Reds

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Danville, Kentucky — Folks, I don't usually write about Spring Training games. Spring is a time of renewal; of pitchers stretching their arms out, and batters learning to see the ball again after a Winter of baseball-less discontent. Baseball games played in March are very easy to dismiss as irrelevant compared to the grueling 162 game stretch that awaits. It takes a Spring Training game...

A.L. Central Preview: The Detroit Tigers

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Detroit Tigers were finally dethroned last season after years of dominance atop the American League Central.  And this year they will try to re-gain that title.  The only thing that should stand in their way is father time.  This team was derailed by injuries last year, and with heavy contracts for older players still hanging over this team, I am wondering if history will repeat itself...

Royals Shown Door From Lincecum Throwing Session

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     It was reported by Jon Heyman that Royals were escorted out of a secret throwing session by Tim Lincecum. It seems this was to be an invite only session, and Royals personnel were not invited. With the Royals penchant for rehabbing broken and seemingly worn down pitchers, it is not surprise that they would be looking at someone like Lincecum as a possible addition to their rotation competition....

Royals Spring Training Update – Colon, Orlando Look to Impress

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals managed their first victory of the young preseason over the weekend, a 6-1 victory over the Angels. They currently sit at 1-4 in Cactus League play and are 1 game above the winless Indians. Spring Training is typically the time that Royals fans look for all kinds of meaning in about every statistic, but at the end of they day the outcome of March baseball has been proven time and again to be near...
