Mandatory Credit: Greg M. Cooper | Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports He’d definitely be an upgrade, but at what cost? The 2020 Kansas City Royals are likely going to need some outfield help. Their current candidates include Bubba Starling, Brett Phillips, Erick Mejia, Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier, Jorge Soler, Ryan McBroom and maybe Alex Gordon if he decides to play one...

Kansas City Royals: Fan safety to increase in 2020 at Kauffman Stadium

September 29th not only was the final game managed by Ned Yost and possibly the last game played by Alex Gordon, but also it is the last game where the majority of Kansas City Royals fans will watch unobstructed baseball at the K. By Opening Day of 2020, there will be the most significant upgrade […] Kansas City Royals: Fan safety to increase in 2020 at Kauffman Stadium - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

Kansas City Royals: 3 veteran pickups that secured the 2015 World Series

By making three acquisitions, the Kansas City Royals ensured themselves of the second world championship in team history. There is no arguing that the core development of players like Salvador Perez, Eric Hosmer, Alcides Escobar, Mike Moustakas, Alex Gordon, Yordano Ventura, and Danny Duffy were crucial in the Kansas City Royals beating the New York […] Kansas City Royals: 3 veteran pickups that secured the 2015 World Series - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Kansas City Royals: Bring back Mike Moustakas as a free agent

With all the talk of the Kansas City Royals bringing back Alex Gordon in 2020, we seem to be forgetting that there is another player that could return. What if instead of begging a 36-year-old Alex Gordon to come back, we went out and found another player from the 2015 World Series team and brought […] Kansas City Royals: Bring back Mike Moustakas as a free agent - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Kansas City Royals: Year-end review, outfielders

Alex Gordon was the veteran of the Kansas City Royals outfield this season. Let’s see how each one stacked up against each other. Outside of the pitching staff, the Kansas City Royals outfield might be the biggest question mark heading into this offseason. Alex Gordon was a mainstay in left field but everybody and their […] Kansas City Royals: Year-end review, outfielders - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Kansas City Royals: Gordon on team “Pieces are here”

Alex Gordon may not be back with the Kansas City Royals next year but he believes that the team has several pieces in place to contend soon. While Sunday may have been the final game for Alex Gordon in a Kansas City Royals uniform, the perennial Gold Glover was optimistic for the team’s future given […] Kansas City Royals: Gordon on team “Pieces are here” - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Gordon has said all along he’d wait until he was out of the daily grind before he’d make any decision. He didn’t want the season’s physical or mental toll — a second consecutive 100-loss finish — to overwhelm his thought process. “I don’t want to say I’m not going to play and want to come back later,” Gordon said. “If I say I’m not going to play, I want to be done, or say...

How did the Royals lose so many games when they had so many good performances?

How did the Royals lose so many games when they had so many good performances?

Jorge Soler #12 of the Kansas City Royals hits a home run in the first inning against the Minnesota Twins at Kauffman Stadium on September 29, 2019 in Kansas City, Missouri. | Photo by Ed Zurga/ It’s an easy question to answer. There are a few things that everyone will remember about the 2019 Kansas City Royals season. It will be remembered as Ned Yost’s last season in a Royals uniform, the beloved manager retiring after his 10th season with Kansas City. If Alex Gordon also hangs up his cleats, 2019 will be remembered as the last season for one of the best Royals of all time. But as...

Finale: Royals 5, Twins 4

Finale: Royals 5, Twins 4

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports Thank you, Ned Yost. 2019 is mercifully over. The Royals lost 103 games. Ned Yost retired. Alex Gordon may have played his last game as a Royal. But today, the Royals put a smile on everyone’s face. They won their 162nd and final game, 5-4, over the Minnesota Twins. They did it for Ned. He went out a winner for the 746th time in his managerial career. The Twins got three in the first inning off two home runs while facing Jorge Lopez, who was among the biggest disappointments for the 2019 Royals. Lopez gave up a tiebreaking run in the fifth on another...

Kansas City Royals: Moore on Gordon “We want you back”

Fill out the rest of the roster and pay off Alex Gordon’s buyout and you’re looking at somewhere between $70 and $75 million. Now, this is where a lot of the uncertainly lies because we don’t know how John Sherman budgets, but assuming saving money now won’t be added to payroll later, you could argue they have a good $25 to $45 million depending on how high they’re willing to run payroll. Let’s pretend they spend on the...

Alex Gordon will know when he’s ready to hang ‘em up

Photo by Hannah Foslien/ When it’s time, it’s time. When it’s not, it’s not. As a fan, baseball is my favorite sport. I love soaring dingers and diving plays. I love a pitcher’s duel and a 13-pitch at bat. I love the pace and the nuance, that it’s a marathon, that any given win or loss is so inconsequential in the context of a season, yet each one can feel so important. The worst team in each division will beat the best team several times each year. Journeymen throw no-hitters and hall-of-famers never do. It’s full of quirks and unlikely outcomes, and I love everything...

The best plays of Alex Gordon’s career

Photo by Christian Petersen/ What are your favorite memories of Gordo? As the 2019 season nears its end and the sun sets on Royals baseball for the year, the same might go for 13-year veteran Alex Gordon. The five-time Gold-Glove winner posts a career .258 average with 1605 hits, 186 home runs, 736 RBIs, 113 stolen bases, and a 36.6 WAR. Though the former Nebraska Cornhusker is contemplating returning for the 2020 season, his final games shouldn’t be treated as if he will be. After all, there are no do-overs. If you’re anticipating Gordon choosing another year of losing over...

Kansas City Royals: Alex Gordon, it’s so hard to say goodbye

Alex Gordon made himself into a star for the Kansas City Royals. Now it is time for the Royals to find a proper sendoff for him. Most fans of the Kansas City Royals are Chiefs fans, as well.  So we all remember the Buffalo Bills of the 1990s as a juggernaut.

Royals Rumblings - News for September 19, 2019 The starting pitching has been pretty solid lately. “Lopie threw a heck of a game yesterday and I just kind of wanted to follow him,” Duffy said. “It was really impressive to watch that last night, and I had some confidence in my fastball today as a result of watching him do what he did. Everything seemed to work out.” The Royals will shut down Jakob Junis for the year, writes Lynn Worthy. “Where he’s at in the year, I think it’s just...
