Royals Unfinished Business Tour ends with WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     Remember when the Kansas City Royals won the World Series? Now – thirty years after the Royals first and only other World Championship – we ALL can say, yes, yes we do. “The Kansas City Royals are the 2015 World Champions. Should I say it one more time? The Kansas City Royals are the 2015 World Champions,” Royals announcer Ryan Lefebvre said on the radio call Sunday...

Royals Still Reap Rewards of “The Trade”

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com In the first decade of the 21st century, the Royals lost more games than any other MLB franchise. In 2005 they had a 19-game losing streak and lost 106 games. The last MLB franchise to NOT lose 100 games in a season, did so four times in five years. Now, they’re the two-time American League Champions – the first team to make consecutive World Series since the Texas Rangers in 2010 and 2011. It truly...

Royals Comeback and Force Game 5

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The date was Monday, October 12, 2015. The time was 3 pm Central Time. The preparation for the Kansas City Chiefs (and Jamaal Charles’ knee) funeral, who died on Sunday, the Royals were nearing the same fate. Sure death was upon them. On the heels of arguably the worst sports weekend in recent memory – the Royals lost Game 3 of the ALDS at Houston and the Chiefs blew an 11-point lead in the final 5...

Zobrist Continues to Reward Royals Fans

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   When the Royals acquired Ben Zobrist back on July 28, I was beside myself with excitement.   There was not a more perfect fit available for what this Royals team needed than in what Zobrist can bring to the lineup and in the field with his versatility. While scrolling through social media for reactions, I was quite surprised at how much negative reaction there was to the trade. And, there was these:...

Royals in all New Territory in 2015 — Being Hated

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   It seems impossible to believe, but this is a real thing. People actually say they HATE the Royals. For so long, the Royals were the pitiful franchise that simply facilitated games. They took the field, took their beating, and always looked to the future. Well, we’ve arrived in that future, and we all love it! Watching this team is incredibly fun, for us. We love their hustle, their attitude, postgame...

Royals Win in 13 — Gordon Closer to Returning to a Stronger Team

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   This past weekend Royals left fielder Alex Gordon said he would be heading out on a rehab assignment as early as this coming weekend. That is great news for the American League’s best team. After tonight’s 3-1 extra-inning win, the Royals (72-46) have gone 23-13 (.638) in the 36 games without Gordon, surprisingly at a first glance, a BETTER winning percentage than they were with him (49-33/.598). But,...

The Royals all-time 25-man roster

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com       A year ago, when this was posted, the Royals were under .500 at 48-49, thanks to a 9-17 record since the 10-game winning streak put them at 39-32 and in first place – 1.5 games ahead of Detroit. At seven games out of first-place Detroit and in third place, we thought an all-time Royals roster would cheer fans/readers up. Now, the Royals (69-46) have it on cruise control as they have all but...

Vargas Goes Down Again – Royals Rotation Once Again a Question Mark

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Conrad McGorkin   Yordano “Ace” Ventura has struggled in 2015. Fortunately for the Royals, his struggles haven’t really hurt the Royals in the standings. The AL Central’s leader won again tonight, 3-1, after six pitchers combined to out-duel MLB’s wins-leader Gerrit Cole and the Pirates 3-1 behind a 3-run eighth inning after NOT having two runners on at the same time in an...
