I live in Craig, Colorado but grew up 45 minutes from the K and went to as many games as I could. I am an area director for Young Life, a Christian youth mentoring and outreach ministry. I pay way toooo much attention to the Royals and my work allows it.

I didn't see this posted anywhere, I'm sorry if it is, but thought this story was worth the post. Former Royals prospect Carlos Fortuna lost his battle with cancer at age 22 this weekend.

this article from dutton makes it sound like he's getting close... and it sheds some light on Wil's transition to the outfield. I didn't realize they were so high on him. Just another reason to love our minor league system

I thought we we were big fans of Jenn Sterger on the site? I've been waiting for some sort of post all week. When the whole thing came out I thought, "wait, Jenn Sterger, the same Jenn Sterger that...

Lamb no-hits through 6 & 1/3

Sorry Dubya that I might be stealing your MiLB thunder, but I was listening to the game so I though I'd update. John Lamb's line - 6 1/3 innings 0 hits 0 runs 3 walks, 5 ks. They took him out after...

Guillen at it again

12

He's now 1-4 with the giants...except that his one hit he was thrown out trying to stretch it into a triple. you can watch the video on his player page that is linked. He definitely ran out of gas rounding second.

Joe Dickerson retires

Dickerson's was a top 25 prospect going into the season.

Fan Graphs saying Royals worse than Nats...or at least close

There is some banter in the comments about the Royals being better than at least three NL teams, but they are certainly trying for Bryce Harper.

Who is this Deivy Batista?

Yes it's early, but Deivy Batista is in the top five in nearly every offensive category in the Pioneer League. He also had a strong line in his debut in the AZL last year but has already surpased...

some fresh fish to watch while the big boys flounder

At least with the Chukars and the Burlington (of the carolina persuasion) Royals starting up we can check out some of our 2009 draftees like Cole White (Chukars) and Ryan Wood (Burlington) just to...

Royals get no love from Gammons

12

Maybe some of the Royals' young talent is a year away from getting noticed, because Davies is the only player mentioned by the scouts Gammons talked to in this story.

Uh-oh

Does Hernandez's demotion mean TPJ will make the 25-man roster?

Teahen to Indians?

Bob Dutton says there are talks for Teahen for Franklin Gutierrez, Ben Francisco or minor-leaguer Trevor Crowe.

who do we root for?

If Detroit wins today they will tie with the Royals in overall record, so really they would finish in last again. I believe KC had the advantage in games vs. Detroit, which technically wins the...
