A Sunny Surprise, in Sunny Surprise!

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As if that title wasn’t enough to get you excited, the start that some old friends have had in camp should be.  Earlier this Winter two big names re-joined the team as non-roster invitees.  The pride of Gardner, KS. Bubba Starling was released from the 40 man roster last fall in an effort to free up space for some of the up and coming players.  Essentially cutting bait with what, for all intents and...

That’s What Speed Will Do

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The story of the 2019 Royals seems to be built around an upstart pitching staff, and team speed.  Now is that worth 11 more wins this season as Vegas predicts, or is it worth more, as many in KC are predicting?  We here at Royals Blue have decided to delve into this and probably a little more. As sure as snow will cancelled school on Wednesdays this Winter, the PECOTA predictions will be widely discounted here...

How Bad is the Royals Offense?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As fans are forced to sit through night after night of the Royals finding new and exciting ways to lose games, we keep hearing the same culprits being blamed.  Bullpen couldn't hold the lead. The starter stunk. Couldn't drive in baserunners. Errors. Ned Yost did *Insert cliche here* again…. But one glaring issue has seemingly flown a bit under the radar. This Royals offense is bad.

What the hell happened to the Royals bullpen?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It was not long ago that the Royals had the best bullpen in baseball, spearheaded by their backend, which was historic, in fact – the B-BOAT. Fast forward three seasons to this one, and the Royals, just three seasons removed from a World Series and one from the End of an Era, are 4-14. The bullpen is the worst in baseball…AND ITS NOT CLOSE. What a long fall it’s been. The bullpen results are...

Who the blank are these guys? The 2018 Kansas City Royals Bullpen

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Dayton Moore has shown a knack for finding diamonds in the rough when it comes to the bullpen. Whether it is resurrecting Ryan Madson’s career or getting good work out of guys like Mike Minor, Kris Medlen, Joe Blanton, Chris Young, Bruce Chen, etc., his sense is more often right than wrong when it comes to whether he can get value out of a player other GMs see as done. It is for that reason I give him the...
