In the case of Alex Gordon, it has...

Royals must look to upgrade Brandon Moss

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com UPDATE: Cheslor Cuthbert has been placed on the 10-day DL with a wrist sprain and Jorge Soler has been called up  To contend or not to contend. That is the question.

The Royals are putting the band back together

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com If Jake and Elwood Blues taught us anything, it is that no matter what, a group of guys can always come back together and acheive great things.  The Royals most likely will not be saving any Catholic Orphanages down the stretch in their bid for the playoffs, but they can still conjure up one last great run just like in the old days.  The Royals are putting the band back together.  The first...

For Royals Fans, Esky Magic is Real

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Esky Magic. For over a week now, Royals fans have been divided by the phenomenon that is Esky Magic. Alcides Escobar has once again been thrust into his familiar role as leadoff man in a much-maligned Royals offense, only to see them miraculously come to life. His specific contribution to the cause?
