Should You Really Doubt the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   What’s the point in doubting the Royals anymore? Going into the ALDS, there were some major doubters of the Royals. Having just finished up a below .500 September, very few thought they could hold their own like they did last year in the playoffs. Many even went as far as to say that Kansas City would be swept in three games by the young Houston Astros team. With a terrible loss in the first game,...

That’s because it is. Yes, Johnny Cueto has not lived up to the hype that surrounded...

Royals Take Series Behind Dominant Volquez

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com With two outs in the eighth inning, the third straight sellout crowd at Kauffman Stadium came to it’s feet. Why?

Royals Drop Wild Opener Against the Pirates

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Kansas City has played some wild, whacky, and long ballgames in the last week. On Friday, they played a day-night doubleheader, and on Saturday they played a thirteen inning marathon. Today’s game was wild, whacky, and long, but the Royals would not come out on top in a match that would last three-and-a-half hours.   Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Yordano Ventura started this game way back in the first...

Royals at White Sox: Weekend Recap

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It seems like 2014 and 2015 for the Kansas City Royals have been compared an infinite amount of times, so what’s the harm in a few more?   Coming out of the break last year, the Royals were swept by the lowly Houston Astros in a three game set. They went into the All-Star Break at 48-46, and after the first series, it appeared that the so-called “second-half team” had already been done in...

The King Out-dueled by Joe Blanton

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Raise your hand if you had Joe Blanton out-pitching Felix Hernandez. Nobody? Okay.   When Nelson Cruz belted a solo homer in the first inning, it was looking to be a long night for Joe Blanton and the Kansas City Royals. He then sat down the next sixteen batters. In his six innings of work, Blanton allowed just two hits, and struck out seven batters. Blanton went back out for the seventh, but was quickly...
