And surprisingly enough, that one player wasn’t a Philadelphia hitter. Rather, it was Phillies starting pitcher Ranger Suárez, who… Read More Can Angel Zerpa Be Ranger Suárez-Esque for the Royals?

The Royals Should Continue to Be Optimistic About Daniel Lynch (But 2023 Will Be Key)

The Royals starting pitching was pretty much a disaster beyond Brady Singer and Zack Greinke, and that was a big reason why the Royals parted ways with pitching coach Cal Eldred this offseason, in addition to manager Mike Matheny. Starting in 2018, Kansas City began to heavily invest in starting pitching in the MLB Draft,… Read More The Royals Should Continue to Be Optimistic About Daniel Lynch (But 2023 Will Be Key)

The Royals earned a solid 9-7 series-opening win over the Chicago White Sox on Tuesday at Guaranteed Rate Field, but make no mistake: this September will be about determining the roster by Spring Training in 2023.

Daniel Lynch is Struggling…And That Should Spark the Royals to Take Action

The Royals saw their three-game win streak end on Saturday afternoon, as they lost to the Orioles 6-4 in game three of the series.

Why the Royals Should Demote Bubic to Omaha (And Bring Up Heasley In the Process)

Right now, it’s easy to understand the frustration of Kansas City Royals fans (though I do think many Royals fans are being a TAD dramatic…I mean, we’re still early in the year after all).
