It’s July, so come watch Alex Gordon at Rosenblatt

Lots of people have been asking me (and and I’ve been passing the questions on to the Omaha front office personnel, just for y’all) – what’s up with Alex Gordon? Will he play in Omaha? Heck, those questions started as soon as Gordon got hurt. The deal: Gordon will be joining the O-Royals on Friday, …

A double Royals victory night: KC and Omaha both win again

Blog favorite* Lenny DiNardo took the mound for Omaha tonight, and delivered exactly the kind of outing for which I was hoping: 7 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 1 BB, 7K. Omaha won, 2-0.*one of several That one walk didn’t come until the 7th inning, when DiNardo walked Luis Maza with two men on and …

O-Royals drop “Home Opener Part II”

Don’t get me wrong here – I love the College World Series. “Back Home in Omaha,” all the cheesy video montages ESPN shows of Series past and scenes from around town, the dogpile at the end. I love all of it. BUT. For all three seasons I’ve worked for the O-Royals, I’ve ended missing them …

The Tupman Era has ended

The Royals have released 29-year-old catcher Matt Tupman. Apparently he requested this move, after a three-and-a-half-year tenure with the Royals in which he only ever got one plate appearance in the Majors. After watching some of Brayan Pena’s awful defense while Tupman continues to get stashed in the minors…well, I can’t say I blame him …

Breaking: Tug Hulett up again? Mrs. Disco says yes!

The lovely wife of Omaha (!) reliever Disco Hayes told me earlier this evening that she ran into Tug Hulett in the team hotel, and Hulett said he was on his way up to join the Big club. I haven’t seen this anywhere else yet (although I have been away from the computer watching some …

According to KCSP’s Greg Schaum, the Royals have promoted reliever Chris ‘Disco’ Hayes to AAA Omaha. Hayes will join the O-Royals as they embark on their annual 2+ week road trip during the College World Series. Hayes, 26, was off to a dominating start in his second season at AA Northwest Arkansas, posting a 0.98 …

Greinke was wrong, and why the ‘W’ is a dumb stat

After the last 6-game losing streak, Zack Greinke told reporters that this team is way too good to lose more than six in a row. Color me shocked here, but he was wrong. The Royals lost their 7th straight, and Greinke is the last hope to keep the streak from reaching eight games tomorrow, then …

The O-Royals tonight, and a personal note about robbery :(

I would like to make this post more substantial, because I think the way Luke Hochevar pitches during his temporary odd-man-out exile to Omaha will say a lot about his composure on the mound. And as we’ve heard and read many times, that’s a bigger potential problem than the pitches he actually throws. Don’t be …

Another new place to find Minda, and Omaha’s bullpen…woes.

I’ve been added as a contributor to Inside the Majors, a very bookmarkable blog by former Blue Jays AGM Bart Given. My introduction is here, and my first article is here. I will be updating that at least once a week, I think. I wrote about the O-Royals bullpen struggles – they’ve given up more …

Royals Minors updates: Gutierrez and Disco

Last week, we learned that the Royals and RHP stud prospect Daniel Gutierrez had a disagreement over…well, something. The problems arose when Gutierrez, who has been in Arizona all spring rehabbing a hurt shoulder, switched agents to Scott Boras and started working out at the Boras facilities. The team sent Guz home “for personal reasons.” …
