ROYALS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Royals Fans Have Another Chance To Do Something Good

Royals Twitter is an amazing place. Sure, it gets a bad rap sometimes. Remember the outrage when Omar Infante almost got voted into the All-Star Game? There were also some milder protests from other fanbases and national media types when Mike Moustakas won the final spot for the All-Star Game thanks in large part to […]

Ventura is looking for his fifth straight quality start

The hype might not be at levels of last season, but Yordano Ventura could be having the most successful stretch of his young career. The 24-year-old will try to build on his recent consistency Wednesday night at home against the Detroit Tigers, though he's still battling control issues. Ventura (9-7, 4.41 ERA) began August by allowing 11 runs in 12 innings over two starts but escaped...

Watch: Young Royals fan attempts to eat ice cream, gets most of it on his face

This young Kansas City Royals has excellent taste in ice cream -- mint chocolate chip in a waffle cone -- only a large proportion of the treat appears to be miss ingthe mark. Along with the large cone, the hat looks a bit oversized for that youngster. Life is good for Royals faithful right now as the former doormat boasts the best record in the American League at 80-51.

Young Royals Fan Crushes Ice Cream Cone, Makes An Absolute Mess (Video)

The Kansas City Royals sit comfortably in first place in the American League Central, so you’ll forgive their fans if they want to treat themselves every once in a while. One young Royals supporter took that to heart Tuesday night, and it was a sight to behold. Television cameras at Kauffman Stadium caught the young fan enjoying a massive waffle cone of what appeared to be mint...

Keeping Alex Gordon in Royals Blue Should Still Be Priority

In case you missed the trumpets blaring and the dancing in the streets, the Royals activated Alex Gordon from the disabled list prior to yesterday’s game and he wore the pajamas of the Kansas City Royals during a Major League Baseball game.

Kansas City Royals relive childhood nightmare with chickenpox scare

The Kansas City Royals are arguably one of the hottest teams in the MLB right now, boasting a record of 80-50 and leading the AL central by 13 games above the Minnesota Twins. But this doesn’t mean the team isn’t prone to injuries like the rest of the MLB. It seems the Royals are in a little bit of health crisis. Royals skipper Ned Yost, as well as some of the other Royal team...

Kansas City Royals Number Munchers: Why Jonny Gomes? Why Now?

News broke late last night about a #Royals trade for the well-traveled Jonny Gomes. Like most Royals fans, I initially met this trade with a bit of an eyebrow raised. Not anger, disdain or anything silly like that. More just “Why do we need this?” Don’t get me wrong. We didn’t give up very much at all. We sent Luis Valenzuela to the Braves. He is an overaged single A middle...

Royals acquire Jonny Gomes from Braves

In a move that many of us did not see coming the Kansas City Royals have traded for OF Jonny Gomes from the Atlanta Braves.  In return the Braves will get the Royals Single-A shortstop Luis Venezuela.  This is an interesting move as it will put the Royals into a bit of a numbers crunch come playoff time.  The Royals will have 6 outfielders on the roster when Alex Gordon and Terrance...

With Alex Gordon returning, Royals will unlock the real value of Ben Zobrist

Ok, I’ll admit it, I just never saw what all the fuss was about with Ben Zobrist. To me, he was always a jack of all trades, master of none. In a good lineup, Zobrist would excel, but make him the focal point and watch his numbers slide. Moneyball and the Joe Maddon mystique made his .270/.350/.450 slash line (although as the game skews more and more to the pitcher, that line looks...

Royals' Gordon close to returning to lineup from groin injury

  Kansas City manager Ned Yost says left fielder Alex Gordon is ''getting close'' to rejoining the AL Central-leading Royals after missing almost two months with a strained left groin.

WATCH: Rays outfielder fooled by Tropicana Field catwalk

Tampa Bay Rays center fielder Kevin Kiermaier climbed the outfield wall at Tropicana Field on Friday night, and instead of coming down with the ball, he landed with a little embarrassment. He was anticipating the hard hit ball by Kansas City Royals designated hitter Kendrys Morales would land close enough to the wall where he could rob a home run, but the ball traveled so high...

Morales put the Royals up 3-1 with a two-run shot in the third off Erasmo Ramirez (10-5) that struck an overhanging catwalk. He has 89 RBIs this season, including a majors-best 46 with...

Kevin Kiermaier looks like a fool after Kendrys Morales homer hits catwalk

The catwalks at Tropicana Field are awful, and make the lovely game of baseball look kind of stupid at times. On Friday night, Kevin Kiermaier looked really bad after scaling the wall for this Kendrys Morales homer…only for the ball to hit a catwalk and fall safely into middle of the outfield. Whoops. Get the Rays a retractable roof stadium without catwalks, OK MLB? The post Kevin...

Kansas City Royals: September Schedule Preview

The 2015 MLB season is entering its final month of the regular season. The Kansas City Royals are almost a certainty to lock up the AL Central and have a great chance at being the top seed in the AL. Looking at the rest of the schedule means that there could be an issue down the road. Many teams benefit from a weaker schedule. This gives them the opportunity to tack on some extra...

The Kansas City Royals are impossible to hate

I’ve tried, really I have. As a Baltimore Orioles fan, the Kansas City Royals should be my mortal enemy. I should hate them, their lousy outfield waterfalls, their goofy lion mascot, and their overly passionate fan base that nearly committed one of the more egregious sins of all time by electing Omar Infante to the All-Star Game. Really, the Royals should make me think things...

Filling the MLB playoff picture: Royals rolling

As we enter the final weekend of August, the playoff chances are beginning to enter “they could always collapse" stage for a few teams, while others have it all in their own hands. The Mets have opened a 6.5 game lead entering Friday over the Washington Nationals: a team with Bryce Harper, a rotation that was the envy of the world in March, and a bad manager. The Cardinals can...

Cueto open to signing with Red Sox in free agency

The Red Sox need a front-line starter and Cueto is one of the best pitchers in Major League Baseball. He also happens to be a free agent this offseason...

John Kruk unknowingly texted with George Brett about ribs

One of the most appealing things about John Kruk as a broadcaster is his willingness to make fun of himself and to tell self-deprecating stories on the air that nicely fill the gaps between action during a ballgame. The analyst provided a funny example of that on the Sunday Night Baseball telecast between the Angels and Royals. During the bottom of the fourth inning, play-by-play...
