A Disappointing Deadline

I think we were all disappointed in the 2020 trade deadline. The Royals only made two trades. They had assets to trade that would help teams pursuing postseason dreams and we were all excited to see what new prospects this would bring us. Now, in no way are we disappointed in Lucius Fox, Edward Olivares,…

It might be time to address Hunter Dozier’s future

Hunter Dozier has been absolutely destroying baseballs for the last couple years. I don’t want to spend too much time on a complete breakdown of his professional career, so we’ll make it quick: 2013 – Drafted, made it to Lexington, raked 2014 – Crushed Wilmington, got to AA 2015 – Struggled a bit at AA…

The good and the bad from Royals rookie arms

Interviewing RHP prospect Alec Marsh

Guys I wish I got to watch this year

As most of you know, we have a partial season ticket plan to the Northwest Arkansas Naturals games.  I try to go as often as I can but coaching in the spring makes it tough so I usually don’t get to go until summer.  That’s the only reason we don’t have a full season package. …

Royals Sign Six UDFAs

So far, the Royals have signed six players to free agent contracts following the 2020 MLB Draft.  Players are allowed to sign for up to $20,000.  There will be more signings to come for the Royals.  These guys all ranked high enough to basically be extra draft picks for the Royals.  They all have some…

Draft Day: 2020

Well, I should be introducing our 2020 draft day coverage with a brief update on how some of Kansas City’s top prospects are performing. We should be excited about the fact that Jackson Kowar has a 0.57 ERA for the Omaha Storm Chasers. We ought to be marveling at the fact that Bobby Witt Jr.…
