Royals All-Trade Deadline Team: The Departed

Sat, 28 Jul 2012 18:39:45 +0000

The MLB Trade Deadline is all the rage these days and big names have already been on the move. The Royals have found themselves in the middle of some deals over the years at the deadline, though usually as sellers. That being the case, I went through and constructed a roster of players made up […]

Royals Catch Breaks To Beat Red Sox

Thu, 10 May 2012 06:23:02 +0000

Baseball’s a funny game. If Marlon Byrd was half a foot to his left or if Cody Ross took a split second longer to secure the ball, the Red Sox very well may have won on Wednesday night. Instead, both were involved in misplays that led to three Royals runs in the first inning off […]

Escobar is Surprise All-Star Candidate of the Kansas City Royals

Tue, 01 May 2012 03:30:15 +0000

We’re now five games into the current Royals road trip, and Billy Butler has been raking. Butler has gone 10 for 24 (a .417 average) with three home runs and seven RBI’s during the stretch, and is predictably riding a 5-game hitting streak. His season slash lines have now increased to a robust .329/.367/.576, and […]

Craig Counsell’s Batting Stance Makes Me Weep (In a Bad Way)

Mon, 20 Feb 2012 02:25:39 +0000

As promised, here are 5 batting stances and swings that antagonize me. 1. Craig Counsell – This is a stance and swing that will make you cringe. Counsell felt some weird desire to hold the bat high above his head and contort his body into such a fashion that his upper body looked like he was […]

(Cautiously) Great Expectations

Mon, 02 Jan 2012 21:29:27 +0000

The 2012 Royals will look very similar to the same group that finished off 2011. Gone is Melky Cabrera, but the rest of the lineup should be the same. Most of the current bench players are still arbitration eligible and will return and have enough experience to fill in should an injury occur. The young […]

Kings of Kauffman Mailbag – Ep. 1

Tue, 06 Sep 2011 23:38:42 +0000

I know, everyone does a mailbag. The thing about Kings of Kauffman that (I hope) sets us apart from everyone else is you don’t get the same basic posts day after day. I’m sure the others on staff feel the same way. Whether you’re getting the daily musings of our fearless leader Engel, or the […]

Navarro’s Wild Week

Sat, 06 Aug 2011 22:12:31 +0000

When I was at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday, I got to witness the Major League debut of Royals catcher Manny Pina. That same night, also in the Royals lineup for the first time, was newly acquired infielder Yamaico Navarro. He was impressive in his first start, the opportunity coming from Mike Moustakas‘ scheduled two-day break. […]

Mike Aviles Traded for Yamaico Navarro and Kendal Volz

Sat, 30 Jul 2011 21:51:11 +0000

  Not all trades are blockbusters. The Royals traded infielder Mike Aviles to the Boston Red Sox this afternoon for infielder Yamaico Navarro and minor league pitcher Kendal Volz. Aviles had struggled for most of 2011 with a few hot weeks.  He was sent to Omaha with the promotion of Mike Moustakas and hit well […]

Royal Sabotage

Sat, 02 Jul 2011 03:30:47 +0000

Royals fans knew that 2011 was going to be a bumpy ride.  After trading Zack Greinke, the starting rotation was held together by the fragile hope that Luke Hochevar could live up to his draft selection and that veterans would have career years. Dayton Moore banked on hungry free agents signing for the opportunity and […]

Royalman was finally back in the Royalman Report studio after a couple weeks of family and other commitments and we were glad to have Kevin Scobee call in to discuss his article from last week on Billy Butler being miscast in the Royals lineup: Clipped from: kingsofkauffman.com (share this clip)   The discussion was going […]

Moose!

Fri, 10 Jun 2011 04:46:35 +0000

A few weeks ago, I wondered about the impact of events and their symbolism in regards to the progression of the Royals.  Eric Hosmer‘s call-up generated national attention as the first big name prospect from the vaunted Royals system.  That was on another Thursday afternoon following an afternoon game. After Thursday’s win, Kansas City announced […]

The Road Once Traveled

Tue, 10 May 2011 06:06:08 +0000

April 2, 2007 was supposed to be the turning of a franchise, the day the semi-local kid that grew up a Royals fan was supposed to be the cure to a two-decade-long drought of awfulness and bring the organization back to relevance. Looking back it was probably too much to put on the kid. Heck, […]

Yep, Another Walk-Off

Sun, 08 May 2011 01:58:11 +0000

Luke Hochevar had his most efficient start of the year, holding the Oakland A’s to one run over seven innings, but got a no decision.  Aaron Crow gave up his first runs of the year, allowing Cliff Pennington to tie the score with a homer in the eighth. Eric Hosmer got his first major league […]

Major League Debuts By Royals Through the Years

Fri, 06 May 2011 05:47:04 +0000

Eric Hosmer starts at first base tomorrow against Oakland. I’m excited, you’re excited.  Royals fans all over are excited. Attendance should be pretty strong tomorrow night to see his major league debut.  Think of how many eight-year-olds can say in twenty years that they were there for Eric Hosmer’s major league debut.  If this group […]

Rewind Yourself: 4/26-5/1 – A Tale of Two Cities

Mon, 02 May 2011 03:39:14 +0000

It really was the best of times and worst of times for the Royals this week.  They got swept by Cleveland; embarrassed, really.  Then they turn around and sweep the Twins. In Cleveland, they were the Bad News Bears. In Kansas City, they were Murderer’s Row. Madness.  Cats and dogs living together. So they went […]

Royals Sweep Twins. Really.

Sun, 01 May 2011 22:37:01 +0000

In years past, if you’d tell me that the Royals had lost six in a row and had a three game series against the Twins, I’d have gotten a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach.  Labored breathing, panic.  The last team I’d normally want the Royals to face in that situation would be […]

Few Positives in Royals Fifth Straight Loss

Thu, 28 Apr 2011 04:22:12 +0000

Think back on the glory days. Think of the walkoff hit that brought the Royals within a game of first place.  Think about that rookie pitcher picking up his second win. Think of last Thursday, when the Royals were 12-7.  After a three game sweep at the hands of the Rangers, the Royals dropped the […]

Free Aviles

Tue, 26 Apr 2011 06:12:35 +0000

It was only a matter of time, and I’m sure I’m not the first one to think or write it, until the “Free fill-in-the-blank” campaign made its way to the Royals second baseman utility infielder. It is only a matter of time too, that people start to realize the water noodle that is the bat […]

Rewind Yourself: 4/18-4/24

Mon, 25 Apr 2011 02:49:28 +0000

Going into this week, the Royals hadn’t lost a series and were getting solid pitching from the rotation and the bullpen.  The staff last week had a combined ERA of 2.87 in 53.1 innings. It was a bit of a different story this week. In two series, the Royals went 2-5, including their first series […]

Don’t Mess With Texas

Sun, 24 Apr 2011 22:58:24 +0000

Going into Sunday’s game, the Royals hadn’t lost three games in a row in 2011 and had only lost the current series with Texas.  They hoped to avoid a sweep today. Despite scoring five runs in the last three innings, they dug a hole that was too deep to climb out of, allowing six runs […]

Royals Dethrone King Felix

Sat, 16 Apr 2011 21:25:50 +0000

On paper, this one’s not even close.  Sean O’Sullivan, all of 23 years old and coming in with a 5.81 career ERA facing off against Felix Hernandez, reigning AL Cy Young Award winner. Backed up by some great defense and working out of a couple of jams, O’Sullivan went five innings, shutting out a feeble […]

Mike Aviles Leads Hit Parade Over Twins

Thu, 14 Apr 2011 04:36:52 +0000

It’s this kind of day that we expected from Mike Aviles.  With a 2-4 day that included two doubles and three runs driven in, Aviles bounced back after sitting for the entire Detroit series. He’s still sitting on an ugly 5-32 start, but he showed better at bats on Tuesday night, working a sacrifice fly […]

Series Preview: Royals vs. Twins, 4/12-4/13

Tue, 12 Apr 2011 03:32:31 +0000

Don’t look now, but the Royals have won two of their first three series and split the third.  They trail Cleveland for first place in the AL Central, and while it’s still early, what the heck, it’s been a lot of fun to watch. The Royals look to take another series in this young season, […]

Mon, 11 Apr 2011 05:08:28 +0000

After trading Zack Greinke, David DeJesus and Yuniesky Betancourt in the offseason, the Royals come into 2011 looking like a whole different team.  With 2011 looking like a transitional year, with little hope for anything but 70 wins while waiting for the vaunted prospect class to get further seasoning, the current crop of big leaguers […]

Mike Aviles’ Rough Start

Thu, 07 Apr 2011 16:06:26 +0000

I’ll confess that I’m a big booster for Mike Aviles, Kila Ka’aihue, Alex Gordon, and all the other guys that have toiled in Omaha when they likely could’ve warranted a roster spot in Kansas City. With the likes of Rick Ankiel, Jose Guillen, and Yuniesky Betancourt spending time on past Royals rosters, it’s been hard […]

Basepath Thievery and Inner Thoughts

Sun, 03 Apr 2011 16:00:09 +0000

Regular season baseball!  While I’m sad to see that college basketball is on it’s way out, I think that the trade of Bill Raftery’s voice for Denny Mathews’ play-by-play is one we can all appreciate. I love me some Denny and I’m sick of hearing Bill. As the season began I was running spring training results over in my […]

Opening Day Vagabond

Someday I’m going to have to own-up to the fact that I’m an Opening Day vagabond. After growing up in a state with zero major sports teams, switching my allegiance after the age of 30, and moving around the country – somehow the biggest baseball fan I know (me) has never been to an opening […]

Kila Wins With Walkoff Whack

Sat, 02 Apr 2011 03:28:12 +0000

The story is going to be about the walkoff homer by Kila Ka’aihue, and that’s fine.  With the Royals tied going into the ninth inning, Ka’aihue stepped in against reliever Michael Kohn and drilled a pitch over the wall for a 2-1 Royals win. What will go overshadowed is a fantastic debut by Jeff Francis. […]

What a game, huh? I watched Opening Day. Had I been in Kansas City, I would’ve gone. However, I had to settle for MLB.tv, which is fine for me. I love Opening Day. It creates so many hopes while squashing so many others. It’s a truly decisive day for no other reason than it’s the […]

Another Catcher of the Future?

I was in Baltimore for a conference this past weekend and beginning of the week, which left me with almost no internet access, so I’ve been trying to catch up with all of the Royals stories. There’s a surprisingly large number of them for this time of year, but one this morning caught my eye. […]

“Ut”-Oh. Is Mike Aviles On the Block?

Thu, 10 Mar 2011 07:19:51 +0000

Chase Utley is a damn good baseball player. He’s one of the best hitters in the game, both for power and average, while playing a defensively-focused position, and doing it well.  With a career .293/.380/.514/.894 line and a 2010 Fielding Bible Award at second base on his resume, he’s a big piece of what the […]

Opportunity Knocks

Sun, 06 Mar 2011 21:44:52 +0000

A running theme* during spring training so far has been the Royals willingness to mix it up on the basepaths.  After acquiring speedy players like Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain to go along with Jarrod Dyson and Derrick Robinson in camp, it’s a good use of personnel to get a feel for how players read […]

Despite my stereo having no antenna and no streaming audio available (ironically, about the only thing you can’t find for free on the internet is baseball on the radio, which would otherwise be free), it’s good to get an honest to goodness spring training game in the books.  The Royals beat the Rangers 4-2 yesterday […]

Royals Sign Pedro Feliz to Minor League Deal

Former Phillies, Giants and (briefly) Astros and Cardinals third baseman Pedro Feliz signed a minor league contract with the Royals for $800,000 and a $200,000 bonus if he makes the major league roster. Dayton Moore said it’s a “depth” move, citing injuries to Mike Aviles and Alex Gordon in the past that left the Royals […]

With it being the end of January, most retail stores have calendars at a discount (if they have them at all).  I’ve seen a 2011 Royals calendar that would be an easy discount purchase — That is, if it weren’t absolutely terrifying. This is the calendar in question. Sure, I know what you’re thinking.  It’s […]

Tue, 11 Jan 2011 04:15:21 +0000

Last year, as you’ve probably heard by now, the Royals were second over-all in the Majors in team batting average, but ranked twentieth in runs scored. At the same time, the team dominated the basement of all pitching statistics (28th in quality starts, 29th in ERA, WHIP, and BAA). In short, the Royals could hit […]

So Zack Greinke is gone and we march on.  With eyes toward the future, with possibly the best minor league system in recent memory, the Royals are preparing for a 2011 that will be interesting, to say the least. That could be a good thing, or it could be a bad thing. For a team […]

For yet another season, the Royals have finished outside the select company of teams who play for the World Series Championship. But come on, we knew that would be the case going into 2010. I think I’m among the more optimistic (at times) Royals fans out there, and I never gave us much of a […]

The Royals started the week off with an awful showing against the Twins, getting swept and embarrassed, allowing 36 runs in three games, but scoring only 7 of their own.  Kansas City rebounded by taking three of four from Baltimore in a close  series that could have been a four game sweep by the Royals […]
