Hope for the Royals in 2013 (no, seriously)

Spring Training is here!!!  Royals pitchers and catchers have reported and the rest of the squad is due in late this week.  As they say in Major League Baseball, hope springs eternal.  Every team has a chance for hope-even if they lost 100 games the previous season.  There are constant examples of worst to first Keep Reading

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Colorado Rockies

Royals Trade Jonathan Sanchez to Rockies for Jeremy Guthrie

Well it is actually official now; Jonathan Sanchez will not be back in a Royals uniform (hopefully). Sanchez was traded to the Colorado Rockies on Friday afternoon for veteran RHP Jeremy Guthrie. On paper this trade seems like a swap of two awful pitchers, but there is some hope and I am a fan of Keep Reading


The Royals Enter the Second Half With a Lot of Questions

Last night was a fantastic display of this town’s baseball fire. Someone finally gave us a reason to cheer (and boo) and we did not shy away. I’m not going to talk about the All-Star Game and all the festivities that surrounded it. It was great for the city, let’s move on. The Royals were Keep Reading

MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at Kansas City Royals

Are the Kansas City Royals Buying or Selling?

We are a few weeks away from the trade deadline and there has been some speculation about whether the Royals will be going out to bring in a solid starting pitcher, or selling for the future. The Royals have played just decent enough to stick around in a weak AL Central that has yet to Keep Reading

Yost replaces Hillman

Is Ned Yost Giving the Royals the Best Chance to Win?

There is something strange going on inside of Kauffman Stadium. The Royals haven’t played great baseball this year and the biggest concern coming into the season was starting pitching. Yet surprisingly, the Royals have been saved by their pitching staff recently and doomed by their lack of offense. I am an avid listener of some local Keep Reading


A Night at The K with the Luis Mendoza

It was the first Royals game I attended this year, and a favorable pitching matchup. I was looking forward to watching Felipe Paulino in person for the first time this year.  I realized something was wrong as I crossed through the towering gates of Kauffman. Luis Mendoza was warming up and I scrambled to find Keep Reading

Jamie Moyer

Is Jamie Moyer Worth a Look for Royals?

I know you immediately shook your head at the title of this article but hear me out. I am not for or against Moyer suiting up in our Kansas City Blue; the thought just tickles my curiosity enough to dig into it a little more. Jamie Moyer officially cleared waivers on Monday, leaving the 24 Keep Reading


Luke Hochevar ready to break out

Crown Crazed’s own Tom Backus wrote 10 predictions for the 2012 Kansas City Royals, with No. 7 being that Luke Hochevar will finally become a consistent pitcher. I’m with Backus and think fans will finally see why the Royals selected Hochevar with the No. 1 draft pick in 2006. If you look at Hochevar’s 2011 Keep Reading

Jonathan Sanchez

Baseball Nation Loves the Royals, Hates the Rotation

As the season gets closer and closer, I seem to be reading more and more articles suggesting the Royals may actually contend for a playoff sp0t in 2012. The problem, as ALWAYS brought to light, the starting pitching rotation leaves a lot to be desired. Jeff Saukaitis asks the same questions: Can the Kansas City Royals Keep Reading


Bruce Chen: The 25th Best MLB Opening Day Starter

While surfing the internet tonight, I came across an interesting article from Jon Paul Morosi. Morosi ranks all 30 MLB opening day starters. Kansas City Royals ace, Bruce Chen, comes in at #25. Morosi’s comments about Chen: The Royals’ rotation is widely cited as the biggest reason why they won’t compete with the Tigers this year. Keep Reading
