Kansas City Royals: Team needs to keep Alex Gordon around in 2020

Alex Gordon has a steep $20 million mutual option for 2020. The Kansas City Royals won’t pay him that but they need to keep him around. It’s extremely rare in this day and age to find a player who has played his entire career with one team but that’s exactly what Alex Gordon has done […] Kansas City Royals: Team needs to keep Alex Gordon around in 2020 - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Strong Keller start wasted in 4-1 loss to Baltimore

Strong Keller start wasted in 4-1 loss to Baltimore

Photo by Will Newton/ Barnes blows up. Brad Keller was sharp in six shutout innings, but the bullpen gave up a combined four runs in the seventh and eighth to waste the effort in a 4-1 loss to Baltimore. The Royals took an early lead off Orioles starter Dylan Bundy in the second inning. Alex Gordon led the inning off with a single, and Ryan O’Hearn pushed him to third with a single of his own. Meibrys Viloria collected his ninth RBI of the season with a sacrifice fly to make it 1-0 Royals. Keller was impressive, going six innings and sprinkling just three hits without allowing a run....

Photo by Ed Zurga/ Will Gordo return next year? Royals Rumblings - News for August 20, 2019 Alex Gordon discusses the future with Matt Ehalt of Yahoo! Gordon said there are some days when he feels an overwhelming sensation to return. There are others when his body is sore and he misses his family of five. Those are the days when the 35-year-old feels it may be that time. Gordon is enjoying his best offensive season since he re-signed although he’s scuffled as of late, posting a .258 average and a .737 OPS. He is hopeful he can finish strong. “I just want this season to be over with...

If Alex Gordon returns, it shouldn’t be as the starting left fielder

If Alex Gordon returns, it shouldn’t be as the starting left fielder

Kansas City Royals left fielder Alex Gordon (4) is shown at first base after a single in the eighth inning against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park. | Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports Gordon might be back. If he is, his role should be different. My first article for Royals Review was about Alex Gordon. It was in 2014, when I double-spaced after periods for some reason, and it was at the height of Gordon being amazing. Per Fangraphs’ version of Wins Above Replacement, Gordon was worth 21.4 WAR between 2011 and 2014, making him the 11th most productive position player during that time...

Meet the new Cheslor, same as the old Cheslor

Meet the new Cheslor, same as the old Cheslor

Photo by Vaughn Ridley/ Greetings from Corn Island! In May of 2016, the defending World Champs (that still sounds nice) were dealt a blow when Alex Gordon and Mike Moustakas collided while chasing down a fly ball in foul territory. Gordon would miss nearly a month with a sprained wrist. Moustakas fared even worse, missing the rest of the season with a torn ACL. To fill in for Moose at the hot corner, the Royals called up 23-year-old Cheslor Cuthbert, the smiley Nicaraguan with the 80/80 name (his middle name is Jesly, in case you doubt the grade). To his credit, Cheslor made the most of...

Royals Rumors: Alex Gordon not going anywhere

Royals rumors have cooled off and although the team might make one more trade before the deadline, Alex Gordon will not be wearing a different uniform this time next week. This time last year, any mention of Alex Gordon being a potential trade piece would have been hilarious.

Gamethread CVI - Cleveland at Kansas City

Ryan O’Hearn’s exile has ended! | Photo by Ed Zurga/ Youth reigns in Kansas City, once again. The big news of the day is that the Royals dumped a pair of their veteran players by trading Jake Diekman and designating Lucas Duda for assignment. That opened the space for two of their younger counterparts in Ryan O’Hearn and Kyle Zimmer. The former of which will be back in tonight’s starting lineup. The only old guy who will take the field when tonight’s game begins is Alex Gordon. Things are finally getting younger around here Maybe the injection of youth will be enough to get the...

Kansas City falls to Cleveland in extras 5-4

Kansas City falls to Cleveland in extras 5-4

Photo by Ed Zurga/ That was a long game, folks The Royals continued their trend of strong starting pitching, getting five solid innings out of Mike Montgomery. They also got eight strong innings out of their bullpen in a game that lasted nearly five hours, but the offense wasn’t able to finish the job in a 5-4 loss Thursday night. Montgomery got off to a rocky start, giving up a home run to left-center field on the first pitch of the game to Francisco Lindor. He settled in nicely, though, not giving up another run until the 6th. The Royals wasted no time responding. Alex Gordon...

Left fielder Alex Gordon #4 of the Kansas City Royals runs the bases after hitting a solo home run in the sixth inning during the game against the Atlanta Braves at SunTrust Park on July 23, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. | Photo by Mike Zarrilli/ Duffy dealt, Gordon...Gordinated A Danny Duffy gem of an outing and a three-hit game by everyone’s favorite left fielder, Alex Gordon, powered the Kansas City Royals past a very good Atlanta Braves team (and an even better Atlanta Braves starter, Dallas Keuchel). Gordon was a triple short of the cycle. Also making an appearance tonight was bad...
