The Royals Roster and the Quest for the Playoffs

86 wins. 5 wins short. Where do the Royals make up those 5 wins. Well, lets have a look at the roster and see. OF - Frankly, I don't see the need to do anything here. The OF performed...


Friday OT: Replacement edition

Last week, Dayton Moore made everyone but himself look like a fool for once. A week, three injuries and two utility infielders later, it looks like Dayton Moore's shit does actually stink like the...

The KC Star remembers what else GMDM has told us


My favorite: 2008 - "We’re not a young team anymore. We’re not an improving team anymore. There are no more excuses." 2009 - "This year’s an example of anything that could go wrong, did go wrong."

Lohse to sign for 3/$33


Should the Royals have been in on this? Who would you prefer: Lohse or Guthrie?


Fantasy Baseball Leagues Clearinghouse Thread

Seems that the last one of these has disappeared, so we need a new one. First order of business, apparently the head to head league is having its draft tonight? Is that actually happening as...

Dayton goes back to the bank.

Dayton Moore as Ziggy. December 27, 2012.


Given what we know now, was Guthrie overpaid?

The dust is beginning to settle on the free agent starting pitcher market and some guys are getting a fair amount of money and/or years for not a lot of projected performance. Lets take a look at...

Dayton Moore as Ziggy.

December 10, 2012. Dayton Moore is a man. Ziggy is a cartoon. But, are they so different? After hours, days and years of trying to wrap my head around GMDM's words, actions, and decisions,...

Paulino got good news just this week

How bad should we expect Frenchy to be? With TABLES!!!!

Jeff Francouer plays baseball. In 2012, he played poorly, ending the season with a total fWAR of -1.2. With another $7 million guaranteed to him in 2013, the Royals should be worried about...

Get to know a stop-gap starter - Vol. 2: Luis Mendoza

Back so soon with volume 2; that's not good. Neither is Luis Mendoza. [Sadly, the effectiveness of Mendoza starts depends entirely on whether plays like this are outs or hits. ]

In light of two blown tag calls in the last two games (neither of which you'd expect an umpire to correctly see in real-time), this topic seems timely for Royals fans. It tries to dispel the myth that replays will slow the game down.
