So I guess we can eliminate Kolten Wong


since we all hate pickoffs so much

Big Data at MLB Advanced Media


PitchFX is only 90% accurate (not sure what that means). FieldFX will use radar and cameras to generate data. Some cool stuff for IT geeks like me. Really jealous of the people involved in these projects.

Yes, I am just baiting billybeingbilly

Duffy starts rehab assignment


Sounds like he's expecting it to go really well

Starling may get Lasik surgery


plus Yost preaching patience and Davies and Sanchez toiling in obscurity in the minors for other teams. This story is really working for me.

Frank White's split with the Royals detailed in new book


More details from Frank as he's promoting his new book.

"I am having bad luck right now, and it’s not going my way. But I just have to fight through it,...


"I am having bad luck right now, and it’s not going my way. But I just have to fight through it, and good things are going to happen," said Sanchez, who is making $5.6 million this season and will be eligible for free-agency. "I feel 100 percent, but I have to keep pitching and get some good luck."

Grienke postgame interview


My favorite thing about Zack is how he always tells it like it is.



The number of whole dollars the Royals donated to the Negro Leagues Museum. The fundraising goal is $100,000.

Jeff Austin Working For Google


No this is not an entry of Catching Up With The 2001 Royals. I'm not entirely sure what an App Channel Manager does, but apparently he does it.

A farce of a game, even by independent league standards


Featuring: - Pete LaCock as interim manager and angry old baseball lifer - Joey Gathright as backup catcher and washed up former prospect - Kevin Costner as minority owner / minority celebrity - and Jose Canseco as himself (or maybe it was Ozzie) You can't make this stuff up. They should write a screen play about it where all of the former prospects end up on the same team and win the division by defeating their old team.

Brewer's shifting defense, and opinions?


Subtext: Yuni so bad Brewers using defensive shift to help him out.



This was mentioned in the weather thread, but I figured it deserved a fanshot of it's own.

John Donaldson: greatest pitcher you've never heard of


Stumbled across this fascinating article yesterday.


NWA vs OMA - Saturday April 2nd

Does anyone know how this will work? Will we have to buy tickets separately for this game? Will they make us leave the stadium after the LAA v KC game and reenter? Or is this just a promotion...

"Now we're at sea level."


"All 33 pitchers and seven catchers reported to camp on time. After checking in, catcher Jason Kendall, who is rehabbing from shoulder surgery, went to Los Angeles to be examined. He hopes to get clearance to begin a throwing program Wednesday."

Sickels' on Royals Pitching Prospect Sleepers


Mostly future bullpen candidates and low-level starters.

Another excerpt from Scorecasting


In the last quarter century, no player hitting .299 has ever drawn a base on balls in his final plate appearance of the season.

Goldberg hired as Scouting Director


I had a WTH moment before I realized it's Lonnie Goldberg, a former crony from Atlanta. Joel was probably eliminated after the whole Guy Fieri imposter debacle.


Royals Outlook: now, medium, and long term

There's been much debate lately about the Royal's future.  Is it bright?  Is "The Process" working or is this all just another tease?  I thought I'd put the question to some of the site's best...

GM admits acquiring SS was a mistake


Who did you think I was talking about? This is what admitting a mistake really sounds like.


Coco Crisp, great or greatest?

Coco has a .226/.385/.561 line through the first 9 games.  There was some concern about his plate discipline, but he's kept up his approach from spring training drawing 8 walks in the first 9...


Greinke in mid-season form

ARMS RACE Zack Greinke mixed in some curveballs after sticking to a pretty strict diet of fastballs and change-ups in his two previous starts. “Everybody was mad at me for only throwing...
