ROYALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Royals Call Up Rankings – 9 Possible September Call Ups

#9 Whit Merrifield - During a normal season I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Whit moved to KC during September as a reward for an outstanding season. Unfortunately there are players who are faster, better defensively, have more power that are ahead of him and the Royals need the best for this September playoff push. Also not on the 40 man roster currently really hurts his...

Woman at Rockies game annoyed by portly Royals fan sitting in front of her (GIF)

The Kansas City Royals were in Denver this week for a quick two-game series against the Colorado Rockies at Coors Field. A woman who had procured some pretty prime seats in what appears to be along the third base line could not hide her displeasure at the prospect of watching the entire game with her […] The post Woman at Rockies game annoyed by portly Royals fan sitting in front...

Jason Vargas Is Hitting His Stride in Kansas City

Jason Vargas has been a journeyman for a long time, so there was noticeable backlash when he signed a four-year, $32-million contract with the Royals in the offseason. He pitched for three different colleges and four different MLB teams before ending up in Kansas City, where he’s having his best season yet and has helped the Royals to the brink of their first playoff berth since...

Jarrod Dyson (OF, KC) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deep Leagues (14+ Teams) ANALYSIS: The Kansas City Royals have been holding on tight to their 50th round investment in the 2006 draft, but was it all worth it in hindsight? After all these years, Jarrod Dyson, the Royals’ veteran 4th outfielder is finally getting enough MLB at bats to have a fantasy impact, […]

Infante, Two-Out Rallies Lift Royals Past Rockies

In one week, I will start my sophomore year of college. I turn 20 years old in March. Tonight, for the first time in my lifetime, the Kansas City Royals (70-55) are 15 games over .500. Omar Infante broke out of his extended slump with a huge game, the offense came through with two-out rallies to back James Shields, and Ned Yost celebrated his 60th birthday with a win. The Royals...

Ned Yost, Kansas City Royals heading for a blue October

I was wrong, and am happy about it. There is a tendency among those who write and blog to speculate and make predictions, then pound their chests when such prognostications prove right. It tends to give a writer a sense of validation. Nearly a month ago I inked a ranking of a dozen Major League Baseball managers whose jobs I considered to be on thin ice. As of now, the axe has not...

One Man’s Trash: Aoki Dokey

After a disappointing first half Norichika Aoki has really turned it on, resulting in a +46% spike in ownership which made him this week's most added player. Most fantasy owners invested in the Royals' outfielder expecting a high average, lots of runs scored, and a steals total somewhere in the twenties. But prior to the All-Star break, Aoki was hitting a ho-hum .260...

Kratz, Vargas Lead Royals Over Twins 6-4

The Kansas City Royals just keep on winning. On July 21st, Kansas City had an unimpressive record of 48-50. Fast forward three weeks, and the Kansas City Royals are 69-55, and now have a two game lead over the Detroit Tigers for the American Central lead. Trevor May cruised through four innings, but hit a wall in the fifth inning. May allowed three walks in the inning, and all of...

Number Munchers: Back to the Minors – Part 1

We as humans just cannot resist the bright, shiny and new. In the immortal words of the legen … wait for it … dary Barney Stinson, “New is always better.” New clothes, new cars, new phones, new people, new new new! We really don’t care that what we have is just fine and perfectly functional. We just want new. On June 7th, 2010, the Kansas City Royals selected Christian...

Will the Royals stay in first place this time?

Alex Gordon – Photo Credit – Keith Allison Remember when the Kansas City Royals were red hot in the middle of June, including taking 3 of 4 from the then-first place Detroit Tigers? They had a slim game and a half lead over the Tigers, who were struggling at that point after such a hot start which made them look borderline unbeatable. The Royals beat the Tigers 2-1 on June 18th...

A couple big things occurred in the minor leagues this weekend for the Kansas City Royals as they announced the promotion of Christian Binford to AAA while also getting Kyle Zimmer into a game at Idaho Falls.It was an extremely brief audition for Zimmer throwing against just three hitters. The results don't matter as much as the velocity reading that was reported to be in the...

September Call-Ups Could Key Royals

For the majority of seasons for the Kansas City Royals, the rosters expanding in September meant an opportunity to see what players could do as a sort of audition for the following year. I can think back to late season call-ups for guys like Ruben Gotay and others who always got the Royals and their fans excited for the next season only for the next season to end in inevitable disappointment...

Kansas City Royals: A veteran presence

They now stand a game and a half above the Detroit Tigers to lead the American League Central. Currently winning 20 of their last 25 games, the Royals have found success lately with a strong veteran...

Kansas City Royals now sit atop the AL Central and here’s why they’re a force to be reckoned with

With all the talk last year about the Pittsburgh Pirates attaining their first winning season since 1992, the Kansas City Royals and their fans probably felt slighted in the sympathy department. This franchise’s last postseason game took place in 1985—which was also the year of its last championship. You could probably say the Royals used up all their luck in that title run,...
