Royals Still In Need For Pitching

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals failed to make the postseason in 2016 after appearing in the World Series the two previous seasons. A large number of their core players will be up for free agency after the 2017 season. This means that the Royals' championship window is likely closing and they need to look at 2017 aggressively if they want to make another run. One of the Royals' top needs in the offseason was pitching. The...

Impact Of Having Lorenzo Cain Back

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Each team has a player that is their spark plug. It may not always be the best player and most certainly is rarely it’s highest paid player. For the Kansas City Royals that player is none other than outfielder Lorenzo Cain. Cain missed 25 games in July with a hamstring injury, coming off the disabled list on July 29th. In the 25 games Cain missed, the Royals went 9-14 as they spiraled out of the playoff...

Make Or Break Weekend In Minnesota For the Royals As We Look Ahead

This weekend the Royals will travel to Minnesota to take on the Twins in what could be a make or break season series. The Twins come into this weekend series with the second worst record in the MLB at...

Re-Evaluating Our Prospects

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   There is bound to be a letdown after winning two consecutive American League pennants and last year’s World Series. That is the situation facing the Kansas City Royals in 2016. They simply aren’t as good as they have been, and aren’t as good as the rest of their division this season. That is the cyclical nature of baseball. Instead of holding onto false hope of a late-season playoff run,...

How Long Will The Royals Let Their Rotation Hold them Back?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Things are not looking good for the Kansas City Royals’ chances of repeating as pennant winners. In fact, at this juncture, they only have a 2.6 percent chance of making the playoffs at all according to Fangraphs. Part of the reason for the uninspiring 2016 has been the performance of the starting rotation. Royals’ fans have grown used to having a mediocre (at best) rotation and overcoming that with...

The Ascent of Lorenzo Cain

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Once upon a time, Kansas City Royals centerfielder Lorenzo Cain was just one piece in a trade for Cy Young winner Zack Greinke. From there, it took a couple years, but Cain blossomed into one of the best players in the game today. Ironically, now Greinke would likely not be enough on his own to fetch Cain in a hypothetical deal. Cain came over to the Royals from the Milwaukee Brewers, who drafted him in the 17th...

What It’s Going To Take For The Royals To Get There

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   The Kansas City Royals enter the All-Star break with a record of 45-43. Though they have been somewhat underwhelming, that keeps them right in line with Detroit and Chicago in the AL Central. Of course, the main problem with this is the fact that the Cleveland Indians played out of their minds in the first half of the MLB season and have a clear 6.5-game lead on the rest of the division. So what can...

The Royals, The Big Red Machine & That Team Currently In First

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   The defending champion Kansas City Royals are approaching the halfway mark of their title defense. Sure it could be going better. Clearly they miss Ben Zobrist and Johnny Cueto, it’s hard not to shake your head and wonder where things would be right now with those two, night in night out, performing like the high level talents fans know them to bet. But hey, things could be going worse. The Royals...
