A Royal Blues year in review

This isn’t at all self-indulgent! It’s more like a roller coaster where I’m the only person having fun! JANUARY Thanks to the wonders of MS Paint, I predicted what Rick Ankiel would look like as a Royal. Friends and I went to the Royals Caravan in Lincoln, and told Ryan LeFebvre about the Ryan LeFebvre …

Quick note on photos

As it says on my photography page, anyone is welcome to use my pictures for blogs or whatever, as long as I’m properly credited. I also like to see how people are using …

Final game at Rosenblatt Stadium tonight…

These sweet/ominous storm clouds eventually dumped on the Blatt Tuesday night.

It’s hard to believe this day is actually here. I’ve tried all season to figure out how I feel about historic Rosenblatt Stadium going away, and I’ve wondered what this day would be like. So far, it’s normal: I’m half-listening to a class lecture and wishing I had eaten breakfast. Pretty typical. But what will …

A quick Ankiel-related tale from the dugout

Smarter, better-informed bloggers have already begun to put up their posts analyzing the HALLELUJAH trade that sent Kyle Farnworth and Rick Ankiel SQUEEEEE I CAN’T HELP BUT YELL IN DELIGHT to Atlanta.

The O-Royals’ current bunch of middle-infielders includes Luis Hernandez, Tug Hulett, Mario Lisson, Travis Metcalf, and Irving Falu – although Falu also plays outfield. Luis Hernandez has played shortstop exclusively since being demoted from the big …

DiNardo wins, Kila close to O-Royals record for walks

This is Take Two of this entry – our lovely (read: Piece of *&!%* garbage) blogging software decided to completely erase everything I had written, and the photos I had inserted. At the Major League level, the Royals are awful at getting on base. They rank 3rd-to-last in all of the Majors in OBP, and …

How to attend THE Alex Gordon Omaha Royals game.

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Alex Gordon will be joining the Omaha Royals for one game on his rehab assignment, and that one game is tomorrow. As of yesterday evening, something like 18,000 tickets had already been sold – not all because of Gordon, of course, but because this was to be one of our two …
