Inside the numbers: Surging Offense Means Surging Royals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As the offense goes, so do the Royals. The Royals had the second-best rotation ERA through the month of April, but it didn’t matter, thanks to miserable offense (ranking last in runs (2.7), and hitting (.210/.270/.336) and OPS .605), scoring 63 runs in their first 23 games tied for a franchise record (worst). They ended the month on a 9-game losing streak, dropping them to 7-16. Seven games later, they...

The Royal Rise of Mike Moustakas

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Through 62 games, Mike Moustakas is on pace for a great season. 44 home runs. 29 doubles. 100 RBI. People (naïve as they are) are talking MVP votes. They are (less naively) talking about the all-time Royals home run record. Reality tells us the yang will come looking for the ying with a big ole bat and he’ll probably fall a litle short of those obtuse projections. Still, this is the type of season we...

Royals Head West Hoping for Answers

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals start a nine game road trip to California Friday. This trip, I believe, will be the pivotal series for the future of KC.  It's so important Luke spent all our funds for the year to fly me out to San Diego to cover it. (Editors Note: Not true, we have other plans for that $7) The reason this road trip is so pivotal is two fold. First is timing. The MLB draft will be completed while the...

Moose vs. Hosmer, Who should the Royals re-sign first?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The looming free agency of Eric Hosmer and others of the current Royals Championship Core has been the subject of many articles and much conversation amongst the fan base for the last several years. The inevitability that many will be wearing a different uniform in 2018 is a realization many of us have attempted to mentally suppress. Simply trying to enjoy one last ride, we hoped that another successful season...

How Bad is it? A Royals Pursuit of the Postseason

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Most of #Royals twitter has already written this team off. In our various interactions with fans about … well, any topic really, the theme of "Sell, Sell, Sell!!!" most frequently arises. Here we sit on June 5th and a large portion of the fans have already given up on the season (what year is this again?). Is there any hope? Are we past the point of no return? If one were to average the lowest...

Is there any indication the Royals COULD turn it around?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Royals General Manager Dayton Moore always says you can start to assess a team at the 40-game mark. At that point, the Royals, had one of the worst offenses in baseball and the fifth-worst record in baseball. Ten games (4-6) later, Memorial Day has come and gone, and not much has changed for the Royals. They’re offense is still one of the worst in baseball and owners of the AL’s worst record (22-30)....
