KC Royals: Could Cheslor Cuthbert Boost Offense?

The KC Royals still need an offensive boost, despite Tuesday night’s dramatic 7-6 comeback win over the Washington Nationals at Kauffman Stadium. Could AAA prospect Cheslor Cuthbert be that guy?

Hoping Not to Repeat 1986

Right now, the only thing 1986 and 2016 have in common is that they are the seasons that came after the Kansas City Royals won the World Series. This column in no way is meant to imply that the 2016 Royals will follow their cousins of thirty years prior into a dismal ten games under .500 season. I mean, there is no way this group is going to fall 15 games off their 2015 campaign...

In Praise Of Jarrod Dyson

You know how I know the Royals are just going through a rough patch and haven’t suddenly completely forgotten how to play baseball? It’s because Jarrod Dyson is still starting, and when Dyson starts, the Royals win. Now you may be looking at your screen quizzically. But Darin, you say, Dyson isn’t a super-important piece to this team. He’s a nice piece to have, and I’m...

How Double Plays Have Been Doubly Painful For Royals

One of the most aesthetically-pleasing plays in baseball, in my opinion, is the 4-6-3 double play. There’s just something almost majestic about the artistry middle infielders display. The footwork and creativity needed to get the ball to the bag. The lightning-quick hands to get the ball from glove to hand. The arm strength to fire the ball another 90 feet. And it’s all happening...

Hitting with Runners in Scoring Position is Remedy to Royals Offensive Woes

5 reasons Royals fans shouldn’t panic

The Royals have struggled at the plate early in the season.  However, there is no reason to panic.

The Slider Moves Differently to Different Locations

I gave Royals’ right-hander Chris Young a bit of an incredulous look — “You’re throwing the slider a ton this year!” He shrugged. Sure. “It’s okay, you can throw it inside and out, and it’s been good. But it moves a little differently depending on where you throw it.” Young then mimicked the release point when trying to throw a slider inside to a right-handed hitter...

The Goods and Bads of Lorenzo Cain’s Struggles

Lorenzo Cain has had a rough go of it so far. That much we can say with absolute certainty. Cain’s coming off a seven-win season in which he finished second runner-up — behind Josh Donaldson and Mike Trout — for the American League MVP, and there was also that whole world championship thing. The Royals weren’t — and aren’t — a team built around stars, but if there was...
