  12. The Royals 2014 marketing slogan: “Be Royal”

    Feb 4, 2014, 8:22 AM EDT

    royals logo

    Lots of teams come up with marketing slogans — we highlighted the Dodgers’ rather curious effort the other day — but the Royals are the ones I always notice. In 2012 the Royals used “Our Time” as its slogan. Last year it was “Come to play.”  This year? “Be Royal.” Which seems like quite a…

  13. Projecting the 2013 Gold Glove winners

    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…

    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…

  16. 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…

    Jul 27, 2013, 11:20 PM EDT

    Wade Davis

    Wade Davis entered the night with the worst ERA among all starters (min. 90 innings). Slated opposite Chris Sale, who entered the night with the 13th-best ERA in baseball, it looked like a mismatch. Nevertheless, Davis persevered, shutting out the White Sox over seven and one-third innings. He allowed four hits, walked three, and struck…

    Jul 5, 2013, 6:16 AM EDT

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

    A few fun early season statistics using Baseball Reference’s amazing new “Split Finder.” The Kansas City Royals’ No. 3 through No. 6 hitters have six homers all year … by far the lowest total in baseball.
