    By all reports, Dayton thinks the Royals will be playoff contenders again in 2020.

    Dayton is delusional.

    Or the AL Central will continue to suck and a middling team like the Royals could be a playoff contender… but that doesn’t really mean they are playoff contenders.

    No problem. Always like talking minor league prospects even though things can change in an instant with them. And I’m certainly never one to shy away from my opinions.

    So does anyone know if either of the guys that we got from the Brewers for Moose are or have the potential to be any good?

    The answer to your question is sure… but also depends on what you think “any good” means.

    Yes I’m aware that Matheny got fired more for losing the clubhouse than anything else, it pretty much started last season. Still he’s a winning manager that put his team in the postseason 4 straight years – up until the last 2 – and they’re sitting at .500 right now. Granted, I tend to agree with you that once the clubhouse is lost, you need to…[Read more]

    Excellent point afroyal. I was going to reference Matheny as well.

    He was in charge of the Cards 7 seasons and had a 591-473 record and made the postseason 4 times, losing the World Series once. They haven’t been to the playoffs the past 2 years and it’s been since 1997-1999 that the team has gone 3 straight years without being in the…[Read more]

    The only saving grace to the KC Royals is that we probably play in the most ridiculously stupidly pathetic division in baseball.

    The Tigers may never be good again, seriously. They’re horrible.

    The Twins can’t seem to pull their head out of their ass.

    The Indians could be good… but probably not for very long.

    And the White Sox just suck.…[Read more]

    But but… the A’s suck. The Royals are better. The Royals have been to the World Series more recently. We’re just better… waaaaaaah.

    The A’s almost always consistently play good baseball. Yeah, they haven’t been to the World Series since 1990 but they’ve been to the playoffs 9 times since then and 8 time since 2000. In fact they’ve only…[Read more]

    At this point, I’m zoning out of baseball. Grimm’s release was a start. I’ll keep tabs via mlbtraderumors, but past that, I’m just done with this season.

    Here is what I’ve come to realize about the line “it’s all the price of a World Series championship” or “we gave everything up for a World Series and won, so it’s all good.”

    I’m not going to guess how many “true” fans actually believe that. Might be a good amount, might not be, I think it depends on the franchise. The Royals hadn’t won anything…[Read more]

    It makes little difference to me. I don’t much like roles anyway, which I’ve said before. I’ve never believed the baseball line that the final 3 outs are the hardest to get. Nope, put my best reliever in during the 7th inning with the bases loaded and 1 out and I pretty much guarantee that’s more stressful than putting him in for a clean 9th…[Read more]

    I wonder how low this has to go before Dayton is replaced.

    He won’t be. Because to many “fans” in this town and more importantly to ownership, he’s the “genius” that orchestrated putting the Royals back in – and winning – the World Series after 30 years.

    Yeah I heard the same thing said by Dayton this morning… and I’d also like to say I’m surprised. I’d also like to say it’s lip service and what you expect a general manager to say. Unfortunately that doesn’t hold true with Dayton. He actually means it when he says it, which is nice and all… but it’s not a way to run a team. It just begs…[Read more]

    Yup, absolutely, I’ve said the same thing. He is one of the better catchers, not necessarily the best. But like I said I temper that by the fact that even if he was the best catcher – which he’s not – 2/3rds of the catchers in this league are worse than probably half the middle infielders are right now. So when people talk up Perez and act as…[Read more]

    You know it’s bad when the MLB network discusses your trade 3 times tonight… and not one time do they mention who the Royals got in return. Not one time in the 3 times I saw it talked about. They just talked about Herrera and said we got 3 prospects in return. I mean typically they say who you got. These guys are so unknown that they didn’t…[Read more]
