It’s been seven years since the Royals last played in the postseason, which doesn’t feel too long for some Royals fans who lived through the Royals’ initial 29-year playoff drought from 1985 to 2014. Granted, the baseball world isn’t focusing on the Royals’ current postseason drought. The story for baseball fans now is on the… Read More JJ Picollo Can Make A Major Mark on the Royals…But It Could (And Should) Feel Different From Dayton Moore
It was a big day in Kansas City for the Royals and sports fans.

The Royals head into the final homestand of the 2022 season with a 58-89 record.

Even though the Chiefs are playing the first Thursday Night Football game of the year (on Amazon Prime of all formats), it was the Royals who commanded most of the news this morning.

Rather, it was due to… Read More The Royals Front Office is On Blast…But Will It Matter This Offseason?
I was able to go to my 23rd Royals game this year, as Brady Singer absolutely mowed down the Detroit Tigers over seven innings in a 4-0 win at Kauffman Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Kansas City Royals notched their 50th win of the year on Monday afternoon, as they won a makeup game from April against the Chicago White Sox at Kauffman Stadium by the score of 6-4.

The MLB Draft and All-Star Break are officially over, and baseball games started again on Thursday afternoon.

Being a Kansas City Royals fan is a complicated endeavor. This is a franchise that does have four pennants and two World Series titles in the club’s 54-year history. While that isn’t the New York Yankees, the St. Louis Cardinals, or San Francisco Giants, it is nothing to shrug at.
