Goose’s Tuesday Take – The Royals Suck at Sucking

Goose’s Tuesday Take – The Royals Suck at Sucking

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com At the beginning of each baseball season, fans of every team have a possibility of 3 plausible expectations. To contend for a championship. To be around .500/mediocre. And lastly, to stink.  The Royals were considered by many to be members of the latter group.

Don’t Get Too Excited

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com   The re-signing of Mike Moustakas has given Royals fans some hope.  However, we need to keep in check our expectations for this year.   Every year I have a conversation with my dad about how if the Royals can do this or if the Royals can do that then we could see a good team in Kansas City this summer. At the end of every conversation, my dad says “Son, they’ll go as far as their...

First Things First – Who’s on First for the Royals?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     With Eric Hosmer off to the land of Ballast Point and sea lions, first base is open for the taking in Kansas City. Who's most likely to seize the opportunity?   Lucas Duda On the surface, last week's siging of Lucas Duda to a 1 year, 3.5 mililon dollar deal was a bit of a head-scratcher. For a team supposedly in rebuild mode, it didn't make a lot of sense to bring in a veteran to...

Farewell Lorenzo Cain

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com We all knew it was coming – the break-up of the core – was coming. We knew Lorenzo Cain was going to play in a different uniform. Thursday, it became a reality when Cain inked a 5-year, $80 million contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, just hours after they traded four minor leaguers for Christian Yelich. I’m glad he’s getting paid. I’m also glad it’s not the Royals doing it....
