    Mike Trout AP

    It took a little while because he got off to what was for him at least a slow start to the season, but for the third straight year Angels center fielder Mike Trout leads all of baseball in Wins Above Replacement.

    The Kansas City Royals have hit 14 home runs in their first 36 games this year. That is not just the worst home run rate in baseball by far in 2014, it’s among the worst in recent baseball history.

    Baseball has been played for 150 years, but a first in Major League history occurred last night.

  12. Alcides Escobar played hurt because the Royals have a weird bench

    Apr 28, 2014, 1:13 PM EDT

    alcides-escobar-royals-spring

    Kansas City has had a weird bench situation all season, including no backup middle infielder currently, which means yesterday starting shortstop Alcides Escobar was in the lineup despite swelling in his knee from being spiked Saturday.

  13. The Royals: A history of (no) power

    Apr 21, 2014, 12:46 PM EDT

    You probably know this, but the Kansas City Royals single season home run record is 36, and Steve Balboni set it almost 30 years ago.

    I saw Captain America last night. It was way better than the first few innings of the Tigers-Dodgers game.

    Oct 25, 2013, 1:54 PM EDT

    Manny Machado

    Let’s go down the list: AL, catcher: Matt Wieters, Joe Mauer, Salvador Perez Mauer is still the AL’s best defensive catcher, but he played a mere 660 innings behind the plate this year, compared to 1,200 for Wieters and 1,115 for Perez. Wieters has won the last two, so he’s the favorite here. Still, I…

  20. And That Happened: Monday’s scores and highlights

    Sep 24, 2013, 7:00 AM EDT

    Pittsburgh Pirates v Chicago Cubs

    Pirates 2, Cubs 1: And with that the Pirates are going to the playoffs. It’s so strange, though, how even though it’s the franchise that has lost for the past 20 years — even though it’s just the laundry which has been shut out so long — that we sort of passively put all that…

  21. A Thoroughly Enjoyable Season

    Sep 18, 2013, 10:45 AM EDT

    Cleveland Indians v Kansas City Royals

    Well, it’s Sept. 17 … and the Kansas City Royals have a shot at the postseason. It’s a bit of a longshot, sure. They are 2 1/2 games behind Texas in the wildcard standings right now, which is hardly insurmountable (especially the way the Rangers are playing). But they also have Cleveland and Baltimore ahead…

  22. Ervin Santana’s gem keeps Royals moving towards the AL Wild Card

    Sep 14, 2013, 9:47 PM EDT

    Kansas City Royals v Detroit Tigers

    Royals starter Ervin Santana was once again excellent, blanking the Tigers over six and two-thirds innings of work. The right-hander allowed just five hits and walked one while striking out five. He was lifted in the seventh after recording the second out following back-to-back singles, though his pitch count was only at 83. Lefty Will…

  23. This clinches it: Ned Yost has no idea what he’s doing

    Sep 9, 2013, 10:11 PM EDT

    Ned Yost

    Setting the scene: Indians up 4-3 on the Royals in the top of the ninth. Cleveland closer Chris Perez gives up a single to Salvador Perez and a walk to Mike Moustakas to begin the inning, setting things up very nicely. Very nicely indeed, for Ned Yost to trample all over what was left of…

  24. And That Happened: Tuesday’s scores and highlights

    Aug 28, 2013, 7:09 AM EDT

    1995 World Series

    Braves 2, Indians 0: Tom Glavine with eight shutout innings and David Justice with a big homer. Wait, sorry. Having flashbacks. The real amazing thing here is that if you would have told me before the season that the Braves would have a game in late August where Elliot Johnson got a start and tripled…

  25. Royals acquire Justin Maxwell from Astros

    Jul 31, 2013, 3:04 PM EDT
