Okay,but you have to pick ONE…

“None of the above.” “I wouldn’t trade any of them.” “Keep them all!” Some folks wear me out. Ask a simple question and folks act like I have the power to actually trade someone on the Royals roster. I was actually shocked to see the results of this poll. I wholeheartedly expected the result of…

Interviewing Royals UDFA Kale Emshoff

The term “Undrafted Free Agent” (UDFA) used to carry with it very little in terms of expectations. When the MLB Draft had 50 rounds, any undrafted free agents left were usually fliers that teams would take on a guy who was either really fast, really strong, or could throw the ball really hard without any…

MLB Debut: Carlos Hernandez

The good and the bad from Royals rookie arms

I don’t know about you, but I am absolutely in love with this current rotation that the Royals are running out there. Every single day there is something to look forward to on the mound: Brad Keller still has a 0.00 ERA and has asserted himself as this team’s ace Danny Duffy is currently pacing…
