How Bad is it? A Royals Pursuit of the Postseason

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Most of #Royals twitter has already written this team off. In our various interactions with fans about … well, any topic really, the theme of "Sell, Sell, Sell!!!" most frequently arises. Here we sit on June 5th and a large portion of the fans have already given up on the season (what year is this again?). Is there any hope? Are we past the point of no return? If one were to average the lowest...

Is there any indication the Royals COULD turn it around?

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Royals General Manager Dayton Moore always says you can start to assess a team at the 40-game mark. At that point, the Royals, had one of the worst offenses in baseball and the fifth-worst record in baseball. Ten games (4-6) later, Memorial Day has come and gone, and not much has changed for the Royals. They’re offense is still one of the worst in baseball and owners of the AL’s worst record (22-30)....

For one night, Eric Skoglund made Royals baseball fun again

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com As Eric Skoglund walked off of the mound, every faithful Royals fan in attendance and those following along on radio and TV knew they had just witnessed something special. Its truly not often in baseball that a fan has these sorts of moments, but this was undeniably one of them. That game will certainly be remembered.  The 24 year old left hander went up against one of the best pitchers to ever take...

Danny Duffy placed on DL

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com The Kansas City Royals announced today that they are placing Danny Duffy on the DL with a strained Oblique muscle.  Initial speculation is that he will miss between 6-8 weeks.  The injury occurred when Duffy attempted to cover first and lunged for the bag, tumbling in the process.  The Royals have called up Lefty Eric Skoglund to start tomorrow against the Tigers.  Skoglund is a 6'7...

Royals Needed That Rainout, And Here Is Why.

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Some times you just need a good ole' fashioned rainout.   Just ask Crash Davis.  And yesterday may very well have been that day for the Royals.  The Royals were in the middle of what was going to be a 12 game stretch over 11 days. With Nate Karns headed to the DL and Ian Kennedy still working his way back to full strenghth off his recent DL stint, the rotation is reeling....

Royals Tap Almonte for Thursday Start

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It was confirmed that Miguel Almonte will get the Thursday start against the New York Yankees opposite the struggling Tanaka.  Almonte has had an up and down career so far with the Royals, mainly bouncing around the levels of the farm system.

#Royals Twitter Talks: Is it Raul Mondesi time again?

Royals in Worse Case Scenario

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com It is the question that has been in the back of our minds since the beginning of Spring Training, and covered by the local sports media circuit twice now. "What will the Royals do with their plethora of free agents this season?"  We were all certain if the Royals got off to a fast start, they would play for "One More Championship."  Or if they were double digit...

Royals Fans Come Together to Discuss Esky Magic (or lack there of)

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com To those who believe in Esky Magic, they don’t care, because WIN. GAMES – and there is nothing more important than winning games. There is also nothing in Escobar’s offensive performance to signify that him hitting leadoff leads to the Royals actually winning. This is what makes Esky Magic so bizarre. As Ned Yost once said, they just win (except for when they don’t like 2016)....

For Royals Fans, Esky Magic is Real

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com Esky Magic. For over a week now, Royals fans have been divided by the phenomenon that is Esky Magic. Alcides Escobar has once again been thrust into his familiar role as leadoff man in a much-maligned Royals offense, only to see them miraculously come to life. His specific contribution to the cause? A .226/.226/.258 batting line. While yes, that is pathetic, it IS actually better than his season line of...
