One Game Per Month

I wrote a very similar column last season.  This is the column that comes out when October is going to be the off-season and not the post-season for the Kansas City Royals. Frankly, I wrote something not far from this last week when we explored what keeping Wade Davis might have meant to the 2017 […]

Embrace The Mediocrity

The Royals won last night. They may have lost their closer to injury. It may not matter. I think there is a chance that Fox turned off the cameras before it was revealed that Herrera was just fine. Let’s face it, boys and girls, in a world where the default go to in an argument […]

Returning to a Dominant Bullpen

For those out there in the world who, for reasons unknown, took the Royals’ being a winning team the last four years personally, there is apparently no sample size too small for them to crow about this year’s team not being good. Whether the Royals are a 75-win team or a 91-win (gasp! 91!!?) team […]

Raul Mondesi and Friends

A real chance exists that Raul Mondesi’s hot spring that won him the Royals’ second base job was all just a mirage. After all, if spring stats made for regular season success, Angel Berroa would be revered in Kansas City. One can look into the matchups and the ratios this spring and garner evidence to […]
