Alex Gordon Continues to Hurt the Royals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In early 2016, the Kansas City Royals extended the contract of Alex Gordon for another 4 years and an additional $72 million.  At the time, there was hesitation, but mostly it was met with postive reaction. The problem with free agent contracts, however, is that you are more often than not paying for what a player has already done, HOPING they can continue to do the same. In the case of Alex Gordon, it has...

A Royal Realization

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The All-Star break is an excellent time to rest, rejuvenate, and realign!  That is exactly what the Royals were hoping to do after getting a few much needed days of rest.  But things don't always happen the way fans want.  Instead we faced the team that had already beat us 10 times in a row.  This was the second longest streak of it's kind in franchise history, and it got longer....

Royal Perspective – Settling in to contend

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As the All-Star break comes to a close, and our favorite boys in blue are playing poker in private jets, or living it up in the night clubs of Miami, we too need some relaxation and perspective on this team.  It seems this fan base is seated in the front row of the Timberwolf.  Big ups, quick drops, and violent shakes have taken over the emotions and opinions of our faithful.  So let's...

Congratulations to Moose (and all of Kansas City)

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Take a bow Kansas City. A long, well-deserved bow. Mike Moustakas is a 2017 MLB All Star. As media markets go, the Kansas City metropolitan area ranks 33rd in the nation. Hell, we’re not even the biggest media market in our own state (St Louis comes in at #21). Also keep in mind this does not include Oh Canada! So you can add Toronto, a city with the 4th largest population in North America, ahead of...

Hall-of-Shame: The 5 worst Royals All-Stars in team history

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have had a plethora of great All-Star moments the last few years.  This is to look at those All-Stars who were less than deserving in the lean times. It’s that time of year again.  The time of year where you step outside and it feels like a sauna in Kansas City.  A time of fireworks, barbecue, and recreation old-person softball. It’s also the time when the best players in...
