The KC Royals need changes in hitting philosophy

As easy as it is to harp on the pitching woes of the KC Royals, offensively the team is putting up historically bad numbers as well. Whit Merrifield led the team with a .282 average in 2020. Outside of Cheslor Cuthbert hitting .274 in 2016, that is the worst for a KC Royals qualified leader […] The KC Royals need changes in hitting philosophy - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

KC Royals: Whit Merrifield remains trade candidate after strong 2020

The KC Royals need to strongly consider moving Whit Merrifield this offseason. At age 31, and turning 32 in January, Whit Merrifield is inching closer and closer to the end of his prime.

Questions for the Royals going into this off-season

Photo by Ed Zurga/ Can this team improve? The post-season rolls on, but the off-season will be upon us before you know it.

Let’s stop and marvel at the season Salvador Pérez is having

Photo by Ed Zurga/ It is great to have him back. The Royals are not a good offensive team. They have the second-fewest runs scored per-game in the league, have the third-worst on-base percentage, and have been historically bad with the bases loaded. What makes this puzzling is that they have some legitimately good hitters in their lineup. Jorge Soler, Whit Merrifield, Hunter Dozier, and even free agent Maikel Franco have all been well above league-average hitters. But shining above them all has been Salvador Pérez.
