Searching for the next HDH Part One

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are getting towards the end of their rebuild in my opinion. With that in mind, let’s look for the next three headed monster in the bullpen.  I believe the Royals have many options already on their roster to create the next dominant bullpen. I am not saying the Royals shouldn’t bring in a free agent reliever this off-season, I just think they could create a dominant late inning trio with...

Royals vs. Rockies World Series?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Do you remember the 1985 World Series? Most of you probably do. The Royals lost game one 3-1 to the Cardinals. Obviously, everyone knows who won the World Series between Kansas City and St. Louis. Since then, the Royals and the Cardinals have been inter-league rivals. Because the Royals beat their most well known I-70 rivalry in 1985, I would like to see the Royals and Rockies face each other in the World Series...

Chance Adams a starter?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Back in 2019, the Royals acquired Chance Adams from the Yankees for minor league prospect Cristian Perez. When the Royals acquired Adams from the Yankees, he was a member of New York’s Triple-A team. During his short stint with the Royals in 2019, he posted a horrific 9.35 ERA in only 8.2 innings pitched. However during his time in Triple-A with the Yankees, he posted a 4.63 ERA, and had a 4-4 record. During his...

Could Zimmer be the Closer of the future?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After removing Ian Kennedy from the closer role, the Royals tried several different pitchers in that spot during the 2020 season. Heading into the 2021 season, I believe the Royals should give Kyle Zimmer a chance to compete for the closer role during spring training. Most of the time, the Royals rely on hard throwers to close out games like Trevor Rosenthal and Josh Staumont; however, I believe that Kyle Zimmer...

Could bringing back an old friend help the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have been bringing in old friends the past few years, I believe they should consider bringing back Tim Collins for the 2021 season. Collins was a member of the Royals 2014 World Series team, and I believe the Royals should bring him back for the 2021 season. After his time with the Royals, Collins bounced around the league with the Nationals, Cubs, Reds, and Rockies. Throughout his career, he has...

Royals need to get back to playing “Small Ball”

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Do you remember when the Royals won games by using the small ball method? I believe they need to get back to that. I love watching teams hit home runs like the Angels, Dodgers, Yankees and many others, but that doesn’t work for every team in the majors. Do you remember when the Royals were a dominant force in baseball? Back in 2014 and 2015, the Royals acquired and signed players like Alcides Escobar and...

Could Matt Joyce fit in the Royals outfield?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com With Alex Gordon calling it a career at the end of the 2020 season, the Royals will need to find his replacement in left field. I believe Matt Joyce could fit the Royals’ needs. Despite his somewhat down year offensively, his on base percentage was solid with a .351. That’s fifth worst in baseball. Even though the Royals don’t have too many big contracts on the books for the 2021 season, I...

Life of Royals Beat Writer Jeffrey Flanagan

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Have you ever wondered what it is like to be an MLB beat writer for MLB.com? Recently, I talked to Royals beat writer Jeffrey Flanagan about what it is like being a journalist for MLB.com. He said on a normal day he goes to the ballpark about “Four or so hours before first pitch.” During spring training, however, reporters usually show up to the spring training sites at about “8:00 in the...
