Cut Kennedy some slack

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After signing a $70 million, 5-year contract with the Royals in 2016, Kennedy has had an up and down career with the Royals. In 2016, Kennedy posted a 3.68 ERA in 33 starts. Yes, I remember the Royals had to give up a draft pick to sign Kennedy. Remember, the Royals considered signing Scott Kazmir as well before signing Kennedy. Kazmir was under consideration before he signed a $24 million, 3-year deal with the...

Merrifield on the move?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Fan favorite Whit Merrifield has been mentioned multiple times during the trade deadline. I am putting those rumors to rest. Back in 2018, Royals general manager Dayton Moore appeared on MLB Network’s MLB Central. On the program, he discussed the rumors on Whit Merrifield. Yes, I realize this was two years ago, but on the show Mr. Moore said “We’ve pretty much made it clear we want Whit...

Too much hype surrounding Mondesi

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Do you remember back in 2011 when the Royals signed then Raul Mondesi Jr. out of the Dominican Republic? Mondesi signed a $2 million dollar signing bonus. After the Royals signed Mondesi, the Royals were saying he would be the next great Kansas City Royals shortstop. He was supposed to be Alcides Escobar but with more power at the plate. Other than that, I don’t see anything else Mondesi has to offer...

Time to extend Dayton Moore

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com When the Glass family brought Dayton Moore to Kansas City from Atlanta, people were excited back in 2006. Now in 2020, some people want him out of Kansas City, but not me. Believe me, I am not the only one. When new owner John Sherman purchased the Royals, sources said Mr. Moore was, and is to receive a long-term extension under the new ownership group. I think it is well deserved, for many reasons. The first...

Yankees gave up on something special

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After being drafted by the Toronto Blue Jays in the 15th round of the 2014 MLB Draft, Ryan McBroom was shipped to the Yankees three years later.During his time with the Yankees organization, McBroom was hitting home runs left and right. Unfortunately for McBroom, he was never able to make it to the majors with the Yankees. It’s hard to see why he wouldn’t. My guess is that the Yankees were loaded...

Is Jose Rodriguez worth a look for the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals bullpen has been shaky for most of the 2020 season, and there’s a pitcher the Royals should take a chance on—Jose Rodriguez. The Angels recently designated Rodriguez for assignment. Most of you are probably scratching your head at this. In 2019, he posted a 2.75 ERA in nine games with the Angels. Now, I realize that nine games is a small sample size, but a 2.75 ERA isn’t bad for any...
