Lopez gets rocked as the Royals fall 11-8 to the Tigers in a shootout

Ned Yost could have used Patrick Mahomes in this one Coming off back-to-back one-run performances in Pittsburgh, the Royals offense seemed destined for another rough night. They were facing a hot left-hander in Daniel Boyd, who came into the night with a 2.95 ERA in three September starts. Combine that with the fact that Kansas City is among the worst offensive units in the league against left-handed pitching and you don’t exactly have a winning recipe. Similarly, the Tigers came into the evening having scored just six runs in their last series and facing a pitcher in Jorge Lopez who...

Game CLII: Royals at Tigers

Jorge Lopez (ribs) is expected to start When Hunter Dozier ran into Jorge Lopez attempting to run down a high chopper just behind the mound, there was nothing to suggest anything was wrong. If I saw the highlight without the benefit of the “Lopez collides with Dozier” headline, I would have thought...

Detroit Tigers series preview: Does the fun ever start?

The least interesting series ever comes to life Is it possible for a series to be less interesting than a Royals/White Sox series? Time will tell as the Kansas City Royals venture into Comerica Park to face the Detroit Tigers. These teams have played each other a bunch, yet it seems like maybe they haven’t played each other at all because there’s not one memorable thing that happened in any of the previous series between these down-on-their-luck clubs this year. Game times and pitching matchups are as follows: Thursday, September 20 — 6:10 PM CDT — Jorge Lòpez versus Matthew...

Royals Minor League Season in Review: Northwest Arkansas Naturals

Royals Minor League Season in Review: Northwest Arkansas Naturals

The Nats were pretty even Steven this year. The Northwest Arkansas Naturals have seen virtually all recent Royals stars in their dress rehearsal before they began their Major League careers. The Royals have typically used AA as their last big stop to face other top prospects, figuring AAA is more for veteran players. Some weaker draft classes has thinned out the talent at the top of the Royals minor league system, however, and the Naturals were left with few high upside prospects this season. They still managed to finish at .500 this year, going exactly 35-35 in both the first and second...

Royals lose their 100th game to the Pirates with another 10 to go

UGHHHH PLEASE FILL IN RELEVANT PORTIONS AND CROSS OUT UNUSED ONES. THANK YOU. TODAY/TONIGHT, the Kansas City Royals lost to the PITTSBURGH PIRATES CITY TEAM NAME by a score of 2-1 SCORE. The PIRATES TEAM NAME simply overpowered a flailing Royals squad, who did not have enough oomph to get the job done. It began with HEATH FILLMYER KANSAS CITY ROYALS STARTER. The INEXPERIENCED YOUNGSTER/AGING VETERAN had some nice moments, but was ultimately unable to contain PITTSBURGH CITY. His biggest problems came in PROBABLY THE FIFTH INNING, BUT ALSO MAYBE THE FIRST INNING, when PITTSBURGH TEAM NAME...

Game 152 Thread: Royals vs. Pirates Finale

Insert emotion here Remember that ten-day stretch where the Kansas City Royals were great? That was fun! Since the All-Star break, the Royals have gone 25-31. That’s still pretty trash but not quite 90-loss trash and definitely not 100-loss trash. But, really, they’ve been pretty awful. The Royals are going to try to avoid getting swept by the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in a game that roughly eight people are going to pay attention to, and I am one of those persons. Here’s the Royals lineup: The #Royals close out their series in Pittsburgh with Heath Fillmyer on the hill....

Whit Merrifield has been, by far, the best 29-year old in baseball this season

Whit Merrifield has been, by far, the best 29-year old in baseball this season

How do players like Whit perform in their age 30 season? How should this affect his status with the team? Whit Merrifield has posted 4.5 fWAR in 2018 as a 29-year old. The next closest 29-year old to Whit in terms of fWAR is Pittsburgh’s Starling Marte, with 3.1. One question that I find myself asking on a regular basis is, “Can Whit Merrifield sustain this kind of success moving forward?” It’s a fair question and I think plenty of folks have tried to answer it in one way or another. The importance of Whit Merrifield sustaining success past his age-29 season, in which he’s been...
