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. Minnesota Twins, September 13-16

The Royals have four more games at home before they hit the road for one last time in 2018 and they welcome in the Minnesota Twins. It’s the final time these two teams will match up, so they know each other well and have been relatively evenly matched this season. We all know what a […]

RECAP: This one was special even by Royals standards

That the Royals scored six runs in an inning didn’t just lose—they relinquished the lead in the very next half-inning, before even recording an out—is some real Royals BS, even for the 2018 version of the franchise. The mind fairly reels at the myriad ways Ned Yost’s hapless band has strolled to [checks notes] sweet […]

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 […]
