Royal Perspective – Settling in to contend

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As the All-Star break comes to a close, and our favorite boys in blue are playing poker in private jets, or living it up in the night clubs of Miami, we too need some relaxation and perspective on this team.  It seems this fan base is seated in the front row of the Timberwolf.  Big ups, quick drops, and violent shakes have taken over the emotions and opinions of our faithful.  So let's...

Congratulations to Moose (and all of Kansas City)

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Take a bow Kansas City. A long, well-deserved bow. Mike Moustakas is a 2017 MLB All Star. As media markets go, the Kansas City metropolitan area ranks 33rd in the nation. Hell, we’re not even the biggest media market in our own state (St Louis comes in at #21). Also keep in mind this does not include Oh Canada! So you can add Toronto, a city with the 4th largest population in North America, ahead of...

Hall-of-Shame: The 5 worst Royals All-Stars in team history

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Royals have had a plethora of great All-Star moments the last few years.  This is to look at those All-Stars who were less than deserving in the lean times. It’s that time of year again.  The time of year where you step outside and it feels like a sauna in Kansas City.  A time of fireworks, barbecue, and recreation old-person softball. It’s also the time when the best players in...

Twins and Tigers and Indians and Sox, Oh My! The Royals AL Central Woes

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It’s been said a million times before and will be said countless times again. The best way to the playoffs is through your division. Simply put, beat the teams in your division more often then they beat you. That is the tried and true blueprint to the playoffs, regardless of sport. It is unfortunately where the Royals have been lacking so far this season. They have been completely dominated by the Twins...

Royals must look to upgrade Brandon Moss

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com UPDATE: Cheslor Cuthbert has been placed on the 10-day DL with a wrist sprain and Jorge Soler has been called up  To contend or not to contend. That is the question. The Royals briefly poked their head back above water, eclipsing the .500 mark earlier this week, but after Tuesdays loss to the Tigers, they find themselves back below .500 again. Despite their residence in the land of mediocrity,...

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...
