Royals look toward next season after dream run

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The emotions were still raw, the sting of defeat still fresh from Game 7 of the World Series when Billy Butler stood in front of his locker and spoke in a voice full of conviction. They would be back, this scrappy bunch of kids. Their return to the playoffs after 29 years was just the beginning, their 3-2 loss on Wednesday night hardly the end. The same team that swept through the playoffs before falling to the San Francisco Giants has brighter days ahead. read more

Royal Rundown: Bumgarner, Giants deny KC world championship

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Ninety feet. Ninety measly, lousy feet was the only thing standing between the Royals and a new ballgame in the bottom of the ninth inning of Game 7 of the World Series on Wednesday night at Kauffman Stadium. Ninety feet, and a man on the mound trying to stake his claim as the greatest performer in a single World Series in history, that is. Probably felt more like 90 miles. read more

Kevin Haskin: Bumgarner just too good against Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The liner seemed oh so promising. It was laced by Omar Infante, the No. 9 hitter in the Kansas City Royals lineup, to begin the fifth inning Wednesday in Kauffman Stadium. You do not need to be informed who threw the pitch. You know. The guy Joe Buck dines with by candlelight. The guy who, this year, pitched more postseason innings than anyone in big-league history. The guy they call MadBum. Yeah, that guy, who came on in the fifth and won his third World Series game as San Francisco nipped Kansas City, 3-2. read more

Cain, Holland enjoying postseason balancing act

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kansas City center fielder Lorenzo Cain and closer Greg Holland will finally get a chance to rest a little more starting Thursday, although that might have to come in short increments. While Cain and Holland have certainly had Octobers to remember for the Kansas City Royals, they have also been juggling work and family this postseason as both became fathers this month.
