X-Rays Negative for Slavy

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Tweet News coming from Jalisco, Mexico is very positive for Royals catcher Salvador Perez.  Salvy was injured on one of the strangest plays I have seen in a while, by none other than Royals back-up catcher Drew Butera.  In a tied ball game in the 9th inning, Drew Butera decided to try and score the game winning run on an ill-advised dash for home. Even more bizarre was the fact that Team Venezuela...

Are the Royals REALLY interested in Brett Lawrie?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com According to ESPN Analyst Jim Bowden, the Royals are one of a handful of teams to express interest in free agent second baseman Brett Lawrie.    Royals fans most notably remember Lawrie from his brush with the team in 2015 when he slid hard into second base and took out Alcides Escobar.

The Royals 25 Man Roster

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It’s now March, but we’re just four games into Spring Training and more than a month from Opening Day, but it’s not too early to start thinking about what the 25-man roster will look like. Like the year before it, and the year before that, most of the roster is already set. That’s what good teams do – they don’t have a lot of holes to fill. There’s always a chance that...

Royals Still In Need For Pitching

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals failed to make the postseason in 2016 after appearing in the World Series the two previous seasons. A large number of their core players will be up for free agency after the 2017 season. This means that the Royals' championship window is likely closing and they need to look at 2017 aggressively if they want to make another run. One of the Royals' top needs in the offseason was pitching. The...

Forever Royal: Remembering Yordano Ventura

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com At first we were in shock. Then when we mourned. Together. That’s what this city does, and that’s what the Chiefs and Royals do for this city – it brings us together. It’s what makes Kansas City so special. It’s not some transient population who only cares about their teams if they’re winning. The teams actually matter to this city. And, we care. As Danny Duffy, who recently...
