The Monday Rant: Hosmer, Moustakas, And An Ill-Timed Quote

Tue, 21 May 2013 04:55:50 +0000

The Royals dropped their fourth game in a row tonight, to the Houston Astros no less, to run their season record to 20-21. Tomorrow’s game makes it the 42 game mark, which is an important date in Dayton Moore trivia, because he has never been general manager of a team that has had a winning […]

Tejada Officially Added To Roster, Added Value Is Questionable

Mon, 01 Apr 2013 02:58:59 +0000

It took 36 at-bats, just 36, for the Royals to see all they needed to see out of a 38 year-old middle infielder that hasn’t played major league baseball since 2011. The Kansas City Royals on Sunday officially announced that Miguel Tejada has been added to the roster and will be traveling to Chicago to […]

Alex Gordon And Power

Sun, 31 Mar 2013 07:59:54 +0000

In 75 spring at-bats Alex Gordon has 8 homeruns and 4 doubles, and an .822 slugging percentage. While Spring Training numbers are in large part meaningless and batters aren’t getting consistent looks at front line arms, or even pitchers that will be seeing bulk innings at the major league level during the regular season, there […]

1,000 At-Bats And The Double Standard

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 05:55:32 +0000

Coming into the 2012 season Chris Getz had already amassed 1,099 plate appearances. By the measure with which the Kansas City Royals view players and player development, Getz was at that point a finished product. If you want to take Dayton Moore at his literal word, Getz had just 986 at-bats, so if you want […]

Kings of Kauffman Mailbag – Ep.8

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 05:54:09 +0000

Spring Training has started. The bickering has begun. Will the 2013 Kansas City Royals be a 90-game winner and make the playoffs, or have marginal improvement and make the Wil Myers fans out there even more upset? So many twists, so many turns, let’s waste no time and get straight to this month’s KoK Mailbag. […]

More Facts About Jeff Francoeur

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 18:58:48 +0000

Jeff Francoeur’s 2011 season will go down as the most overrated season any Royal has ever had. It wasn’t a great season. Wasn’t. In fact, it was average, perfectly average, when compared to all the other right fielders in baseball that year. Yet because it’s spring and because there’s seemingly two camps you can be […]

A New Storyline Emerges: James Shields and His “Old-School Soul”

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 05:33:03 +0000

It’s a theme around baseball every spring that hyperbole will run rampant, and somebody will say something that makes a fair amount of the listening and viewing audience plant their flag into the ground while saying “you see, that’s why I like that guy”, that really doesn’t mean anything at all.

“My goal is to go out there and prove (the fans) wrong this year. I want to prove to Kansas City fans that what they saw two years ago is what they’re getting this year.” – Jeff Francoeur I hate starting columns with a quote. It is rule No.1, or at the very least it’s […]

The Monday Rant: All In

Tue, 01 Jan 2013 05:21:48 +0000

The Kansas City Royals finished the 2012 season with a 72-90 record. They finished 23rd in all of baseball with a 4.30 ERA. They finished 20th in all of baseball in runs scored, at 676. They saw major regression in their most talented player, major (and very predictable) regression in their right fielder, and exactly […]

Miguel Tejada Signs Minor League Contract

Tue, 01 Jan 2013 02:03:50 +0000

It’s been announced that the Kansas City Royals have agreed to terms on a minor league deal with former major leaguer MVP Miguel Tejada. And with that, it’s as if no one has been paying attention for the last six seasons. Original reports of the deal were of a guaranteed, $1.1MM contract – giving the […]

The Monday Rant: Addressing The Rumors

Tue, 04 Dec 2012 01:24:40 +0000

Rumors. That’s what they all are, maybe. Rumors are fun; rumors are exciting. Rumors are an enjoyable fantasy that allows fans to play their version of GM, and allows fans to have their take on what they would do, if this were MLB The Show in real life. What rumors can also be is terrifying, […]

Sat, 01 Dec 2012 05:49:48 +0000

They waited into the night. They waited to get the news. They waited, for hope. Some other night, I guess, Royals fans. Official word was just released by the best damn beat writer in the History of Whatever, Bob Dutton, that all remaining unsigned Royals players have been tendered a contract.

The Monday Rant: Dollars and Sense, and Offense

Tue, 27 Nov 2012 03:24:19 +0000

Trading from a position of strength can often lead to nothing but weaknesses. In the case of the Kansas City Royals, talk has swirled about the possibilities of trading one of the young offensive commodities in hopes of acquiring starting pitching, a position of obvious weakness. However with the Royals as we look ahead to […]

Thirty-nine homeruns allowed in 178 innings. An ERA of 5.16; a FIP of 5.63; an xFIP of 4.48. A pitcher entering his age 30 season with declining velocity, declining strikeout rate, and coming off a year in which he was the worst starting pitcher in all of baseball (according to fWAR).

A Call To Arms

Tue, 30 Oct 2012 20:40:34 +0000

The Royals are in desperate need for starting pitching. No seriously. So desperate in fact that everywhere you turn there’s another column, article, or blog post lamenting this and how the Royals have to spend money this offseason to acquire someone who fans feel comfortable adding the words “starting pitcher” after their name.

Enough has been made now of the recent Bob Dutton article quoting Royals owner David Glass saying he will – and the team intends to – spend money this coming offseason to improve the team. Since there’s been an overabundance of wish-list-making from fans throwing names around of pitchers as if that’s the obvious cure […]

More Mixed Signals, More Awkward Logic

Tue, 04 Sep 2012 19:47:10 +0000

For the third straight game Monday, David Lough started in right field and batted leadoff. Lough, a 26-year-old whose minor league numbers look like those of a minor leaguer and not a prospect, has been the quintessential “guy that deserves a shot” within the Royals organization for a few years now. What’s most puzzling about […]

Tue, 21 Aug 2012 04:57:25 +0000

How far away are the Royals from contending, really? That’s an important question that needs to be answered as September approaches and the 2012 season comes to a close. Because while many may be beating the “just a couple pitchers” drum, there’s still a lot that needs to be sorted out before the Royals jump […]

It wasn’t supposed to be this way. Twenty-twelve was supposed to be the year that things started to fall into place for the Kansas City Royals.

There isn’t much to say that hasn’t already been said.

In what was supposed to be the finishing flourish to the defining month of the Dayton Moore regime (okay, there’s some hyperbole there) the Royals lost both games of the doubleheader against the Twins Saturday, 7-2 and 5-1.

Fresh off getting some pub for being the fantastic hitter he is, Billy Butler continued to be the best bat on the team – as he’s been for at least four years now – crushing a homerun in the first and walking twice, helping the Royals defeat the Orioles 4-2. Butler raised his season OPS […]

Dear Alex, Things are not going well. It’s pretty obvious. The smile and the swing you had last year seem a distant memory, and now everyone is clamoring to jump off your bandwagon from a year ago to adopt the phrase “same old Gordon”. It’s been a rough couple of months, I know, but I’m […]

The career resurgence and rebuilding of Jason Hammel continued Friday night as he battled his way out of trouble time and again, and Royals hitters could never capitalize with runners on base. (Which shouldn’t be all that surprising.) And the Royals lost 8-2. With the loss the Royals fall to 17-27 on the year, and […]

About two weeks ago there were enough Royals fans on Twitter and other places bemoaning the struggles of Gold Glove left fielder Alex Gordon, saying that his cold start at the plate reminded of the “same old Gordon”.
