Baseball’s impact on the day of 9/11

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On the day of the terrorist attack, the Yankees were to face the Boston Red Sox. The Yankees and the Red Sox are one of the biggest rivals in the game of baseball. Due to the attack, the game between New York and Boston was postponed. When baseball returned, fans from New York and Boston came together as one to watch President Bush throw out the first pitch. Although the game of baseball united the country and...

Relievers KC should consider signing for 2022

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are looking to be active on the free agent market for bullpen arms this upcoming offseason.  The Royals are looking to compete in 2022 with many of KC’s top prospects looking to settle into the big leagues. However, the Royals might want to consider adding a veteran bullpen arm or two. Kansas City has already brought up the possibility of Mike Minor joining the bullpen next season. Even if the Royals...

Royals found a gem in Tapia

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The bullpen has been a challenge for the Royals this season, but they do have a few good arms. The Royals acquired Domingo Tapia from the Mariners after he was designated for assignment on May 17. Tapia only appeared in two games for the Mariners this season. When the Royals acquired Tapia, I was a bit surprised they made this deal with the team looking to get younger; but the 30-year old has really shined in...

Under the radar trade chips for KC

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals are looking to be sellers at the trade deadline. The Royals have struggled mightily this season even though they have been able to put multiple wins together; but, it’s a little too late to compete for a postseason push. The Royals have multiple players that will be on the trade block. Kansas City’s top trade candidates are Whit Merrifield, Michael A Taylor, Jorge Soler, and Danny Duffy....

Escobar to the Nationals

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com On May 4, the Royals signed former big league shortstop Alcides Escobar to a minor league deal to provide infield depth for the club. I loved this move by Kansas City, although I knew it would only be for minor league depth. During his time in Omaha, Escobar batted .274 with five home runs and 16 RBIs. I believe his stats would have been better if the Royals had the opportunity to sign him early in the season,...

A possible reunion with steady Eddy

Kansas City’s rotation at the beginning of the season started out looking like this: Danny Duffy  Brad Keller  Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Mike Minor  Brady Singer  Tweet Kris Bubic  Of those five pitchers, the Royals have been only able to get good starts from Mike Minor and Brady Singer. Unfortunately, Minor’s stats don’t...

Mondesi should transition to second base

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals believe that Adalberto Mondesi could become a super star in the big leagues at shortstop, but I don’t believe that has worked out for the Royals thus far. During Mondesi’s time in the big leagues he has been unable to stay healthy for long periods of time. I believe a position change could help him in many ways. Currently, Whit Merrifield plays second base for Kansas City; however, they...

Bullpen Target: Brett de Geus

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals bullpen hasn’t been bad, but it certainly hasn’t been great this season. The Royals this past offseason brought back Greg Holland on a one year deal worth $2.75 million. I don’t believe it has worked out in the Royals favor. However, Holland isn’t my biggest concern in the pen. The biggest issue in the bullpen for the Royals in my opinion is Wade Davis. The Royals brought Wade...

Butler might need to join the rotation

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Heading into the 2021 season, the Royals improved their starting rotation by signing Mike Minor to a two-year deal to join Danny Duffy, Brad Keller and Brady Singer. Even with the addition of Minor, the Royals still need help in the starting rotation. The Royals have tried Jackson Kowar, Kris Bubic and Jakob Junis in the starting rotation so far this season, and none of them have worked out. However, Kowar and...

Bolanos could be a bright spot for Royals bullpen

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals acquired Ronald Bolanos from the Padres in 2020 along with outfielder Franchy Cordero for reliever Tim Hill. The Royals shipped Cordero to the Red Sox in the package that brought outfielder Andrew Benintendi to Kansas City. The Royals tried Bolanos in the starting rotation in 2020; but during his two starts, he struggled mightily with a 12.27 ERA. Even though Bolanos struggled as a starter, the Royals...

Mondesi’s injury issues continue

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com When the Royals signed Adalberto Mondesi in 2011, they had high hopes for him in the major leagues. While Mondesi is still young and is still viewed as a long-term piece for the Royals, I believe his injury history should be a big concern for the Royals’ front office and fans. Mondesi has already been on the injured list once this season, but that doesn’t include the times he has been pulled from games...

Singer could’ve been a Blue Jay

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Before becoming a top pitching prospect for the Royals, Brady Singer had the opportunity to sign with Toronto out of high school in 2015. Fortunately for the Royals, Singer decided to decline the Blue Jays offer and attend the University of Florida and play for the Gators. This worked out in the Royals favor to allow them to draft great pitchers like Brady Singer and Jackson Kowar in the same draft. I...
