All the guys in here, we’re a family. We’re happy when we win and not when we lose. We play the game with energy and you have to do that to be successful.” read more

Kevin Haskin: Ventura showing form Royals expected this season

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The biggest disappointment for the Kansas City Royals during the first half of the season was Yordano Ventura. Forget about the cases made for Alex Rios and Omar Infante. Watching Ben Zobrist helps us forget as he continually deposits pitches in the outfield grass at Kauffman Stadium as if he is hitting fungos, while capable of playing positions manned by Rios and Infante. So then, let’s revisit the case for Ventura. Remember that the right-hander was supposed to be the Royals ace this season – a rising star with flame that burned white hot. read more
