Are the Royals really a .500 team?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are starting to give everyone in the Fandom that old familiar feeling in their guts when the 7th inning hits.  It's that feeling like something is about to happen.  After some late inning magic against the A.L. East leading Boston Red Sox, and then again against the ever dangerous Toronto B.J.s, the Royals are again becoming Kings of the Comeback.  Going into Wednesday's game...

Why your vote for the All-Star game may have long term effects

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com **The aim of this article is not to sway votes, but instead to inform you the voter! (Insert Russia joke here) The Kansas City Royals are on the down hill stretch of their annual #VOTEKC campaign.  A campaign that we all know to have been run flawlessly in years passed.  But this year, a more realistic approach has taken over, and they have modified the hashtag to #VOTEHOS.  The cry to #votemoose...

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...

Are the Royals All-Star candidates worthy?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Today, Eric Hosmer moved into a first-place lead in the American League All-Star balloting, 50,000 votes ahead of second place Yonder Alonso and joining teammate Salvador Perez as those positioned to be voted into the 2017 All-Star Game. While it is certainly safe to say that All-Star and deserving is always a subjective thing, without looking into any stats, I think a case can be made for five position players....

Are The Royals Now Buyers?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Thus far the West has been very, very good to us!  The Royals are on the downward stretch of an 9 game/10 day stretch in California.  And thus far shooter, we are hot!  The Royals are 3 games away from .500, 4 games out of first in the Central, and are scoring 7+ runs a game.  This team is fuego.  But does that make us buyers all of the sudden? In the same tone we have been saying...

Inside the numbers: Surging Offense Means Surging Royals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As the offense goes, so do the Royals. The Royals had the second-best rotation ERA through the month of April, but it didn’t matter, thanks to miserable offense (ranking last in runs (2.7), and hitting (.210/.270/.336) and OPS .605), scoring 63 runs in their first 23 games tied for a franchise record (worst). They ended the month on a 9-game losing streak, dropping them to 7-16. Seven games later, they...

The Royal Rise of Mike Moustakas

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Through 62 games, Mike Moustakas is on pace for a great season. 44 home runs. 29 doubles. 100 RBI. People (naïve as they are) are talking MVP votes. They are (less naively) talking about the all-time Royals home run record. Reality tells us the yang will come looking for the ying with a big ole bat and he’ll probably fall a litle short of those obtuse projections. Still, this is the type of season we...

Royals Head West Hoping for Answers

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals start a nine game road trip to California Friday. This trip, I believe, will be the pivotal series for the future of KC.  It's so important Luke spent all our funds for the year to fly me out to San Diego to cover it. (Editors Note: Not true, we have other plans for that $7) The reason this road trip is so pivotal is two fold. First is timing. The MLB draft will be completed while the...

Moose vs. Hosmer, Who should the Royals re-sign first?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The looming free agency of Eric Hosmer and others of the current Royals Championship Core has been the subject of many articles and much conversation amongst the fan base for the last several years. The inevitability that many will be wearing a different uniform in 2018 is a realization many of us have attempted to mentally suppress. Simply trying to enjoy one last ride, we hoped that another successful season...
