Kansas City Chiefs: Arrowhead Stadium has not been kind to Tom Brady

Arrowhead Stadium plays host to the AFC Championship Game this weekend, as the Kansas City Chiefs take on the Patriots for the rights to go to the Super Bowl. Fortunately for Chiefs fans, Tom Brady hasn’t been great at Arrowhead. Despite being in the league since 2000, Tom Brady has only played the Kansas City […] Kansas City Chiefs: Arrowhead Stadium has not been kind to Tom Brady - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

ZIPS projects Royals to have lots of hitters who can’t get on base

ZIPS projects Royals to have lots of hitters who can’t get on base

Merry ZIPSmas! It is projection season! ZIPS is the gold standard of player projections, and ZIPS-meister Dan Szymborski released his 2019 ZIPS projections for the Royals this week. It is not pretty, but for a team coming off a 104-loss season without any major off-season improvements, it is not as bad as you might think. For one, the second-best projection on the team (behind Whit Merrifield) is for 23-year Adalberto Mondesí, with 2.7 WAR and a line of .261/.295/.462 with 18 home runs. Mondesí put up 2.8 fWAR in just 75 games last year, so you may want to take the over on that...

Royals Rumblings - News for January 16, 2019

Grrr, the Rumblings are late! Royals Rumblings - News for January 16, 2019 Seth Wingerter at Royals Farm Report writes about scenarios for Brett Phillips this year. 3.) Phillips starts hot and forces the Royals’ hand. This would pan out like the last scenario, but Phillips would instead force the Royals to make these moves earlier. This situation really is not too far-fetched given Phillips posted a .944 OPS in AAA in 2017, and if he can rekindle that bat then the Royals will essentially be forced to call him up, especially if Gore is struggling. It’s highly probable that Gore under...

Sporting KC: Why doesn’t Daniel Salloi receive more national attention?

A quick Google search of Daniel Salloi will show that the leading goal-scorer for Sporting KC receives little media attention outside of the Kansas City area, despite having an incredible breakout year on a contending team. National media coverage will occasionally mention the Sporting KC forward’s recent success in passing; but generally, Daniel Salloi’s impressive […] Sporting KC: Why doesn’t Daniel Salloi receive more national attention? - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

A case for Jorge Lopez to be the Royals’ fifth starter

A case for Jorge Lopez to be the Royals’ fifth starter

Jorge Lopez presents the most upside of any candidate to open the season as the Royals fifth starter, but will he get the job? I was scrolling through Twitter the other day and saw a graph roll through my timeline regarding Royals pitcher Jorge Lopez. Lopez, who came over in the Mike Moustakas trade last sumer, really impressed me in his brief time with KC in 2018. I believe he ought to be the Royals’ fifth starter when the team breaks from spring training, and that belief began to gain some traction as I started doing more digging. pic.twitter.com/xmlezQnHp2— Drake (@Drake2985)...

Kansas City Royals: Ian Kennedy as reliever not crazy idea

The Kansas City Royals are in the midst of their offseason, but one Royal who needs to have a good year is pitcher Ian Kennedy. Could the expensive pitcher at some point be moved to the bullpen?

Breaking curses, believing, and being a fan

Breaking curses, believing, and being a fan

Remember to wear your lucky shirt! I have a confession to make: I didn’t watch Alex Gordon’s home run in the bottom of the ninth inning in the first game of the 2015 World Series. No; I went into the other room in a huff to play some Rocket League. If you remember, the Kansas City Royals were ahead in the eighth inning until Eric Hosmer made an error on a routine play to first base, leading to the New York Mets scoring the go-ahead run. I was furious. See, you only get so many chances to win a World Series, and to get back to the World Series for the second year in a row and throw...

I was thinking they might want me to go there because of some of the people who are likely to be there are off the Lexington team and were in last year’s draft.
