Where are the 2015 Royals All-Stars now?

Where are the 2015 Royals All-Stars now?

Your 2015 Kansas City All Stars (kind of). My earliest Royals memory is (I think) George Brett retiring. Like so many of you, I suffered the majority of my life as a Royals fan wishing for mediocrity, and being satisfied by competency from so many players. But 2015 wasn’t like that. The Royals won the most games in the American League (95), and had seven (seven!) All Stars*. They went on to have an historic comeback against Houston in game four of the ALDS**, and of course went on to win the World Series handily 4-1. *Alex Gordon was elected as a starter but replaced due to injury. ...

Royals Rumblings - News for July 22, 2019 Bubba Starling hit his first Major League home run, writes Jeffrey Flanagan. “I’m getting more locked in,” Starling said. “I felt pretty good today. [The home run] was pretty cool. But unfortunately, we came up short in the game. I’m more worried about wins and losses. Hopefully, we get [wins] in Atlanta.” Lynn Worthy writes about that Lucas Duda misplay in the fourth. “(Duda) just took for granted that the ball was down the line and got by him,” Yost said. “He just didn’t...

Jakob Junis was phenomenal again, tonight. | Photo by Jason Miller/ Hunter Dozier won the race to space for the boys in blue. In some baseball leagues, the playoff teams are determined by who wins the division in the first half and who wins it in the second half. If Major League Baseball worked that way the Royals would be well on their way to a fight for the second-half title. Unfortunately, it does not and so all they’re doing is wrecking their draft position for next year. It is a heck of a lot more fun to watch, though. Is it a coincidence that they’re doing this after...

Gamethread C - Royals at Cleveland

Adam Plutko, everybody. Who the heck is Adam Plutko? The Royals have won six out of eight games coming off the break, including sweeping a four-game set against the White Sox earlier this week. But they got beaten pretty badly by Cleveland last night when Mike Montgomery proved to be no Homer Bailey and Wily Peralta proved he had no place on a major league baseball club any longer. The Wily Peralta era of Kansas City era is over. The Josh Staumont era begins. The Royals have replaced one wild pitcher with another. The difference is that Staumont can get some swings and misses and is much...

These are some waves from South Africa. I love the internet. | Photo by Ed Sloane/WSL via What signs should we be looking for that Dayton Moore is doing it again? Love him or hate him, Dayton Moore was the man in charge when the Royals had winning seasons from 2013-2015. And one of the primary things that many people talk about when they discuss those rosters are how a “wave” of prospects all came up at once and ultimately contributed to those winning clubs. It is only natural then that people are looking for the next wave, now. Some people even think they can see that wave forming...
