But we KNEW this……..Didn't we?  In 2016 in 150 plate appearances, Mondesi posted a batting line of .185/.231/.512 for an...

Royals Woes Signal End of an Era — Its Over

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As the seasons first series comes to a close, we reflect back and observe the first two three games offering up what seemed like closure.

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After a disappointing 2016 campaign that saw the Royals finish a mediocre 81-81, fans in Kansas City have tempered hopes that 2017 might be the season that gets this team back on track.  Much of the thinking is the Royals were simply out of gas after two straight seasons of reaching and eventually winning the World Series.
