Kansas City Royals week in review: 7/4/2011

Nick Scott

Ugh. Well, it just keeps getting worse, doesn't it? The Royals managed one measly win last week and managed to become not just the worst team in the American League Central, but the worst team in the American League. Nobody reading this is too shocked, right? This was a team ...

Kansas City Royals week in review: 6/27/2011

As Geogre Costanza learned on *Seinfeld* it's always best to go out on top. If that's the case, then last week wasn't too bad for the Kansas City Royals. The week ended with the Royals taking two games from the Chicago Cubs in front of a packed house. Unfortunately, those ...

It seems pre-destined at this point. The Royals would somehow, someway find their way to last place in the American League Central. They actually played pretty well on the road this week, but it didn't translate into wins. They went 2-4 in Oakland and St. Louis and dropped a game ...

Kansas City Royals week in review: 6/13/2011

Nick Scott

After the way the Kansas City Royals have been playing the last two weeks, the bar for a successful week was lowered quite a bit. Even under the higher standards of earlier int he season, this was a pretty good week. The Royals went 4-3 and didn't lose a series. ...

The Royals promote Mike Moustakas

Nick Scott

The Kansas City Royals promoted highly-touted third base prospect Mike Moustakas. In Triple-A, Moustakas wa hitting .287/.347/.498 with 10 home runs and 15 doubles. To make room for him on the roster, they optioned infielder Mike Aviles to Omaha. I predicted that the Royals would promote Moustakas at some ...

Was pinch hitting for Alcides Escobar the right call?

Nick Scott

In the last inning of last night’s Kansas City Royals and Toronto Blue Jays game, the Royals were down by two runs with the bottom of their order due to bat. Every team’s last three batters are the most woeful on the team, but the Royals last three are worse ...

Kansas City Royals week in review: 6/6/2011

Nick Scott

On the bright side, the Kansas City Royals won twice as many games last week as they did in the week prior. On the not-so-bright side, that means they only won two games in the last seven days. The one thing this team had been doing well this season was ...

Kansas City Royals week in review: 5/31/2011

Nick Scott

The week in review is a day late due to the Memorial Day holiday, I hope you will excuse the tardiness. The Royals won only a single game last week. There's no sugar-coating a week like that. This team is certainly struggling and doing so in a number of ways. ...

Royals broadcaster and pitcher Paul Splittorff has died

Nick Scott

Just last week, [it was reported][1] that Royals broadcaster and former pitcher Paul Splittorff was seriously ill. I had hoped that the reports were premature and he would be able to fight and win his battle with cancer. Unfortunately, that wasn't in the cards as he died at his family ...

Kansas City Royals week in review: 5/23/2011

Nick Scott

So far this season, Kauffman Stadium has kind to the Kansas City Royals.However, this week, their fortunes changed. A likely combination of increased competition and regression to the mean handed the Royals a 2-5 home-stand last week. To make up for injuries and to improve the roster the Royals made ...
