Series Preview: Royals at Pittsburgh Pirates, September 17-19

The Pirates had an interesting strategy at the deadline, buying and buying big in spite of their distance from the top of the wild card heap. The idea was that if they could continue winning (they were on one at the time), great, but their big move to acquire Chris Archer was with an eye […]

Series Preview: Royals vs. Chicago White Sox, September 10-12

The Royals return to Kansas City for their penultimate homestand of the 2018 season and take on the Chicago White Sox in a three-game set. I thought the White Sox might surprise this season and finish decently. Instead, they’re significantly under .500 and while there’s tons of talent, there are still questions about them moving […]

Series Preview: Royals at Cleveland Indians, September 3-5

The Royals leave their best homestand of the season to travel to Cleveland to take on the best team in the division, the Indians, who have just added Josh Donaldson to ensure their postseason ends in heartbreak. As I mentioned when they played last week, the Indians lineup is good, but a bit top heavy. […]

The Royals welcome in the only team worse than them in all of baseball, the Baltimore Orioles, for a three-game set that could help to determine who gets the number one pick in next June’s draft. […]

10 Things That Have Gone Right For The Royals in 2018

The 2018 Royals are a train wreck. Or perhaps, a dumpster fire occurring on top of a train wreck. This is no secret. But let’s ignore all the many, many negative things that have happened this year and focus on some positives. Yes, there are some. I promise. In no particular order, here are 10 […]

Series Preview: Royals vs. Cleveland Indians, August 24-26

The Royals return home to take on the division-leading Cleveland Indians in a three-game set. The Indians have basically had their typical season. They started off middling and were sort of hovering around .500 for the first half of the season only to get hot after the break. They’re 21-11 since coming back and have […]
