What the hell happened to the Royals bullpen?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It was not long ago that the Royals had the best bullpen in baseball, spearheaded by their backend, which was historic, in fact – the B-BOAT. Fast forward three seasons to this one, and the Royals, just three seasons removed from a World Series and one from the End of an Era, are 4-14. The bullpen is the worst in baseball…AND ITS NOT CLOSE. What a long fall it’s been. The bullpen results are...

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are set to celebrate their 50th Anniversary. Part of that process is releasing the 50 greatest Royals, as voted on by the fans.

First, a look at the ground rules: to qualify, a player had to play a minimum of four seasons in Kansas City. Enjoy....

Farewell Lorenzo Cain

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com We all knew it was coming – the break-up of the core – was coming. We knew Lorenzo Cain was going to play in a different uniform. Thursday, it became a reality when Cain inked a 5-year, $80 million contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, just hours after they traded four minor leaguers for Christian Yelich. I’m glad he’s getting paid. I’m also glad it’s not the Royals doing it....

The Ridiculously Super Crazy Long Remembering These Royals Article (With Pictures and Video)

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As we slide into 2018, there’s no better time to look back at the Kansas City Royals Golden Age. “Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.” – Dr. Suess. Yep. But, there were plenty of tears at the K on October 1, as a core said goodbye and an era ended. Now, to quote Doc Holliday, they’ll walk out of our lives, forever. While it is possible that a guy or two of...

Are the Royals All-Star candidates worthy?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Today, Eric Hosmer moved into a first-place lead in the American League All-Star balloting, 50,000 votes ahead of second place Yonder Alonso and joining teammate Salvador Perez as those positioned to be voted into the 2017 All-Star Game. While it is certainly safe to say that All-Star and deserving is always a subjective thing, without looking into any stats, I think a case can be made for five position players....

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...

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)....

Royals Fans Come Together to Discuss Esky Magic (or lack there of)

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com To those who believe in Esky Magic, they don’t care, because WIN. GAMES – and there is nothing more important than winning games. There is also nothing in Escobar’s offensive performance to signify that him hitting leadoff leads to the Royals actually winning. This is what makes Esky Magic so bizarre. As Ned Yost once said, they just win (except for when they don’t like 2016)....
