    Jeff Francoeur Snatches Popcorn From A Fan (Video)

    Chasing fly balls around the outfield is enough to make anyone hungry, including Kansas City Royals’ right-fielder, Jeff Francoeur. The man they call “Frenchy” has been building his reputation as a fan favorite not only in Kansas City, but around the entire MLB this season.  It started in Oakland, when Francoeur sponsored the A’s fans’ […]

    Royals Closer Jonathan Broxton Has Some Big Pants To Fill (Video)

    Kansas City Royals closer Jonathan Broxton is 1-1 with a 1.99 ERA, and he has successfully converted on 21 of his 24 save opportunities this season.  At a whopping 6’4″, 300-pounds, it goes without saying that his absence from the Royals lineup would leave the rest of his team with some rather big shoes pants […]

    Cirque du Soliel Performer Throws Out Opening Pitch (Video)

    When an opening pitch earns a spot on the nightly highlight package, nine times out of ten it is for all the wrong reasons.  But when we are treated to that other one-out-of-ten, it can be quite remarkable.  Take last night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, […]

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

    Royals Fan Catches Foul Ball With Popcorn Bucket (Video)

    I spent most of last night taking in Game 3 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins, but whenever I was afforded the opportunity, I couldn’t help but check in to see how my Toronto Blue Jays were doing against the Kansas City Royals.  With the Jays losing the […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/16/11 — Matt LaPorta

    The Stat Line Of The Night — 5/16/11 — Matt LaPorta

    We could probably award this Stat Line of the Night to the entire Cleveland Indians line-up, seeing as how they accumulated a total of 19 runs and 20 hits, including an incredible fourth inning that saw them record ten runs against the Kansas City Royals last night.  However, the Stat Line has always been about […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 8/9/10 – Bobby Abreu

    The Stat Line of the Night – 8/9/10 – Bobby Abreu

    Bobby Abreu was recently moved to the leadoff spot bymanager Mike Scioscia and the Angels have looked like a completely different team since that happened.  Is it too little too late in the AL West?  Most likely, as the Rangers seem to have a firm grasp on the division.  It is a good sign for […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 7/25/10 — Curtis Granderson

    Curtis Granderson is having a rough season on his new team, the New York Yankees.  The Yankees don’t seem to be missing a beat however, as they continue to hold onto the top spot in the deep AL East.  While A-Rod’s chase for 600 home runs is stealing headlines in New York right now, it […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 5/3/10 – Jake Peavy

    The Stat Line of the Night – 5/3/10 – Jake Peavy

    Going into the 2010 baseball season, the White Sox felt confident that they had one of the best, if not the best, pitching rotations in the American League.  Hell, it might have been the best in all baseball.  The only problem is that their great starting pitchers haven’t been pitching well, and Jake Peavy is […]
