Once again, the KC Chiefs are linked to an offensive lineman in a mock draft. This time, it’s to Teven Jenkins.  By now you’re probably tired of hearing about how bad the offensive line’s performance was in the Super Bowl LV loss where the Kansas City Chiefs failed to score a touchdown.

KC Chiefs: Reuniting with Alex Smith would be fun, but isn’t practical

Alex Smith is going to be landing with a new team soon and while the KC Chiefs would be a fun landing spot, this wouldn’t make much sense for either side.  After an incredible comeback for the ages, Alex Smith is going to be searching for a new home, as the Washington Football Team is […] KC Chiefs: Reuniting with Alex Smith would be fun, but isn’t practical - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

KC Royals: Despite homer, Ervin Santana gets job done

The KC Royals’ Ervin Santana gave up two runs, but did what he had to Sunday. Ervin Santana reintroduced himself to the major leagues Sunday. Pitching against big league hitters for the first time since 2019, and for the KC Royals for the first time since 2013, Santana turned in the kind of performance it […] KC Royals: Despite homer, Ervin Santana gets job done - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - A Kansas City Royals Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Who could the Royals have drafted in the 2010s?

Who could the Royals have drafted in the 2010s?

Photo by Jamie Squire/ Pitchers on sale! As I come to the final installment of this draft series, I can reiterate enough how difficult it must be to identify baseball talent. The NBA draft is now only two rounds and is largely an exercise in lottery picking. NBA teams are not so much looking for a player who can step in and contribute right away as much as they are looking for an 18- or 19-year-old who might develop into the next Kobe Bryant. Occasionally a team stumbles onto a diamond in the rough like Luka Doncic while a solid player like Fred VanVleet goes undrafted....

KC Chiefs: Way too early list of safeties to target in 2021

The KC Chiefs should keep an eye on these safeties during free agency. While the Kansas City Chiefs will still have both Tyrann Mathieu and Juan Thornhill for the 2021 season, they could potentially lose Daniel Sorensen to free agency. That means the Chiefs need to find another safety through either free agency or the […] KC Chiefs: Way too early list of safeties to target in 2021 - KC Kingdom - KC Kingdom - Royals, Chiefs, Jayhawks, Kansas State, Mizzou & More

Royals Rumblings - News for March 1, 2021 David Lesky likes the Hunter Dozier deal for both sides, but does wonder what it means for the future. It makes me wonder if the Royals have decided Jorge Soler isn’t going to be in their long-term plans, so they have a suitable option as a right-handed slugger if and when Soler does leave as a free agent following the upcoming season. It doesn’t have to mean that, of course, but it would make some sense that they wanted some certainty...

The Royals will match up against their spring training facility co-tenants, the Texas Rangers, in a preview of their Opening Day matchup.
