Opening Day Countdown: 39

Let’s see if I can come up with a post every day of the rest of the offseason. Today, there are 39 days left until Opening Day on April 6. 39 is the number of times Royals batters were hit by pitches in 2011. That was…not good. Only four teams got plunked fewer times – …

Farewell to Lance Zawadzki

When I read that Lance Zawadzki was among the Royals’ roster cuts, I was prepared to make the argument that he should be retained as an organizational guy for another season. In my mind, he was a pretty darn good ballplayer. The thing is, most of my exposure to the Storm Chasers this year came …

The latest roster changes: In Pictures

Why? Because PICTURES! Your September callups: Farewell to Kila, who was DFA’d to make roster space for Herrera. No way he comes back to the organization at this point – much more on him later, because there’s this thought that he “gave up” after his last demotion and I really want to look into that. …

Two More Years of Frenchy….sigh.

When the inevitable happened last winter, I wrote: Let’s take consolation in a few things: 1) This was not a trade; we did not lose any prospects. 2) It is one year. 3) More specifically, it is for 2011, which was going to be an ugly season anyway. The first bullet point still applies, which …

Goodbye, Lucas May. We hardly knew ye.

Lucas May came to the Royals in the Scott Podsednik trade last summer. Today, he was traded to the Diamondbacks, for righty Andrea Pizziconi. (I can already hear Ryan LeFebvre having fun with that name on a broadcast.) (Thanks to Greg Schaum for alerting me that I am stupid, and missed the fact that Pizziconi’s …

Gil Meche to retire

According to Mike Swanson, Gil Meche is announcing his retirement from baseball today. My computer time is limited right now, but I had these initial thoughts: 1) Daaaaaaamn. First and foremost, I’m bummed for the guy. I will always cherish Gil’s very first start in a Royals uniform, a 7.1 inning gem against Boston on …

Late to the party: A Greinke reaction

Free shortstop!

Note: I have like 30 Zack Greinke-related Firefox tabs open right now. Because of real-life stuff, I haven’t had time to read very many, so I apologize in advance if I repeat anyone else’s points. Every trade has about a zillion angles. It’s probably a good idea to explore as many of them as possible, …

Royals farewells: Herges, Lerew and Rupe

Matt Herges, pitchin'. Photo by me.

This past week, the Royals parted ways with three pitchers who spent part or all of last season in Omaha: Matt Herges was released; Anthony Lerew and Josh Rupe became free agents. Here’s a look back on what they did for the Royals. Matt Herges (released) Herges signed as a free agent with the Royals …

Worst. Joke. EVER. (Yuniesky Betancourt is a Royal.)

Before facing a single pitch in Fenway tonight, the Royals have been the butt of jokes from all over the country. When I first got the word from Greg Schaum’s Twitter, I prayed it was a joke. No way the Royals would trade a top prospect for ANOTHER awful shortstop….right? Oh. No. They actually did. …

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 …
