This Date In Royals History–September 20, 1991

1991: Mike Boddicker and three relievers combined to shut out the Mariners while Brian McRae drove in two runs in the Royals’ 3-0 win at the Kingdome in Seattle.Boddicker only allowed two hits and three walks in six innings. Although he only struck out one hitter, he got the Mariners to hit into three double plays. As a result, the Mariners did not have a runner reach third base...

That’s so Royals

“Hit the snooze! Hit the snooze!” Apparently I wasn’t the only one that said that today. Here’s your recap for the day: The Royals lost 10-1 in the first game of the most important series in almost thirty years. I now present to you an original rant. I’d like to point out a few key words in said rant: Incompetence, accountability, and stupidity. Here is the definition for...

Flanny's Five: At this point, all Royals GM Dayton Moore can do is watch

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- This was the vision Dayton Moore had eight years ago when he accepted the offer from Royals owner David Glass to become the team's general manager: The Royals battling for a division crown in late September in front of a packed Kauffman Stadium. "It's the culmination of a lot of work from a lot of people in our organization," Moore said. "...

No Joke: Aoki Is On Fire

If I would have told that Norichika Aoki would break a Royals record at the beginning of the season…..well I wouldn’t have, so don’t worry about it.The fact is, an offseason trade acquisition by Dayton Moore is one of the hottest hitters in all of baseball. He has been the lone consistent bright spot over the last few games, accounting for nearly half of the hits the Royals...

Royals flip rotation; Shields would start either Game 163 or wild-card game

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals manager Ned Yost tweaked his rotation a bit this week, and as a result, James Shields could be the starter if the team was forced to play a 163rd game on Monday, Sept. 29. Shields also would be set up to pitch a wild-card game on Tuesday, Sept. 30, or the first game of the American League Division Series that week. More immediately, the Royals now will...

Butler not talking to media but Yost says his attitude remains great

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The most affable and talkative player on the Royals isn't speaking much these days, at least not to the media. Billy Butler, whose role has been significantly reduced since Eric Hosmer returned from injury Sept. 1, normally has always seemed more than willing to share his thoughts with reporters. But in the past week, Butler has politely declined requests...

Royals Suck Me Right Back In

Ever since you've all known me, you probably have thought I was a pretty pessimistic fan. When it comes to the Kansas City Royals, more often than not, I expect the worst to happen. I expect that because the Royals typically do the worst thing possible. They don't lose, they rip your heart out. I come by it honestly, but there are times when I look back on my pessimism and...

Ned Yost Is The Worst Manager, Except For All The Other Managers

If you looked at Twitter for even half a second on Sunday, you probably already know that Ned Yost is doing it again. Nearly six years to the day after the Brewers took the nearly unprecedented step of firing a first-place manager in September, at least in part due to some extreme bullpen mismanagement, Yost’s decisions […]

Guthrie, Infante Lead Royals Over Sox

Believe it or not, Ned Yost’s lineup of desperation worked, and Yost made me eat my words (http://royalsblue.com/?p=1704). I am completely okay with that. The offense tonight exploded for seven runs, and left the Kansas City fan base with a little bit of hope. Alcides Escobar wasted no time in the bottom of the first with a leadoff double. Nori Aoki then singled him in, and later...
