Will Alex Gordon get a statue at the K?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On September 24, Royals legend Alex Gordon announced his retirement.

When the Royals drafted Gordon in 2005 out of the University of Nebraska, he was supposed to be the next George Brett. In my opinion, Gordon was just average at the hot...

Now, looking at what Hosmer has done with the Padres thus far, I am glad they let him walk. Since signing...

Reclamation Project: Addison Reed

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals might bring in one or two relievers in 2021. I believe Addison Reed would fit the bill. Back in 2018, Reed signed a two-year deal worth $16.75 million with the Minnesota Twins. Before signing his deal with the Twins, Reed was a member of the New York Mets’ 2015 World Series team. During his time with the Twins, Reed posted a 4.50 ERA in 56 innings. Reed, in my opinion, had a decent season in 2018....
