Lifelong KC resident, and long suffering fan. I was 7 in '85. My dad had 2 tickets to game 6 and took a co-worker instead of me. I haven't forgiven him.

A Bright Spot in '09 (not named Zack)

You may find it hard to believe, but we may have one other bright spot in the 2009 season other than the impressive Zack Greinke. Billy Butler is currently on pace to hit 49 Doubles. He is only 23...

Shouldn't we be doing what the Pirates (the NL version of the Royals) are doing?

By my math, the Pirates have been involved in the following trades lately... June 4:¬†The Pirates traded Nate McClouth to the Braves (!) for Gorkys Hernandez, Charlie Morton & Jeff Locke. June 30:¬...

Royals get Blasted on ESPN's 'Least Trade Value' list

9. Aaron Rowand, Giants Total left: $39.96 million through 2012 It's not that he's bad player, it's just that ... well, he's Aaron Rowand. He's on the wrong side of 30, his one big season came in Philly's bandbox and he's signed for three more seasons. Which probably means the Royals will try to get him this winter. Oh wait, there's more (and it doesn't involve JoGui surprisingly enough...)

Visual Proof of my lifelong of suffering (Camera Day Content)

A month or so ago, the subject of Camera Day @ old Royals stadium came up in the UL Washington, greatest Royals thread, and I said that I'd try to find some old pictures of me, with legends of days...

Grudz Signed...a few months too late

Correct me if I am wrong, but since the signing was after the draft, we do NOT get any compensation, correct?

Name the Bobbleheads in '09...

I was thinking about this just now...Which current Royals greats will be forever enshrined in bobblehead lore with their very own bobblehead day in 2009? Last year we were treated to the epic Tony...

Andruw Jones to Sign Minor League Deal with Rangers

Said he likes the Rangers specifically to work with their batting coach. Apparently he hadn't heard we have Seitzer in our corner now? 1 year, $500K if he makes the MLB roster w/ incentives over $1 M

I totally would have bought this!!!!!!!

I wonder how they got it to sell it in the first place!!!

40 Man Roster

So, I just started looking @ the 40 man roster, and some space has to be made in a couple of weeks...They have to drop at lest 4 from the current 40 man roster next week....Maybe more if the...

"What If"

• What if Mark Littell had thrown a different pitch to Chris Chambliss? • What if George Brett didn't have hemorrhoids? • What if John Schuerholz hadn't traded David Cone for Ed Hearn? • What if Schuerholz hadn't spent millions on Mark Davis? • What if the Royals had protected Jeff Conine in the expansion draft rather than David Howard? • What if they hadn't wasted their first-round draft pick on Colt Griffin?

Here's a trade discussion to keep your eye on!

Padres are shopping Jake Peavy around heavily... This could be a good gauge at what we could get for Greinke, more importantly, if it is a haul, it could show GMDM & Mr Glass that even if you give a young guy in your organization a good contract extension, you can get MORE for them when you trade them because a 'big' contract for us is small potatoes for most!
