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.

One of the Royals' top needs in the offseason was pitching. The...

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...

Royals face long odds to win it all in 2017

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com After a disappointing 2016 campaign that saw the Royals finish a mediocre 81-81, fans in Kansas City have tempered hopes that 2017 might be the season that gets this team back on track.  Much of the thinking is the Royals were simply out of gas after two straight seasons of reaching and eventually winning the World Series. With the goal having been achieved, it would be natural to find it hard to carry...
