Official 2016 KC Royals thread

Let's do it again!!!

I'm ok with that. :)

The Royals embody all that is great about the USA. They worked hard, never quit and never stopped striving to be #1. Nobody wants to play the Royals this year.

I'd be happy with that. Phone Post 3.0

A short but excellent article.

I love Brett's wife.  Looking at the pic she gives 'em all a Matt Serra

“The reaction of the fans was kind of awesome because there were some pretty obnoxious ones that just were riding the players. And it felt like it was good karma for us. Look at the picture. It’s hilarious. All their hands are on their heads and they’re in disbelief. It was pretty funny from our perspective. So I got a kick out of it.”

Fuck the Mets


Not too shabby... but we'll need some guys to step up if we want to repeat.

Catchers (2): Drew Butera, Salvador Perez

Infielders (6): Christian Colon, Alcides Escobar, Eric Hosmer, Omar Infante, Kendrys Morales, Mike Moustakas

Outfielders (5): Lorenzo Cain, Reymond Fuentes, Alex Gordon, Terrance Gore, Paulo Orlando

Starting Pitchers (5): Ian Kennedy, Kris Medlen, Yordano Ventura, Edinson Volquez, Chris Young

Relief Pitchers (7): Wade Davis, Danny Duffy, Dillon Gee, Kelvin Herrera, Luke Hochevar,  Joakim Soria, Chien-Ming Wang

Disabled List: Tim Collins, Jarrod Dyson, Mike Minor, Jason Vargas

Good for Colon.  He's seems like a great kid and has been involved in some big moments in the playoffs the last two years.  Glad to see him on the 25 man and would like to see him and Omar platoon early in the season and whoever plays better wins the spot.   

I don't know if Gore is ready, I mean we've never seen him do anything but pinch run, but he can bring some excitement in that role until Jarrod gets back.  Hopefully Dyson's rehab goes well.  

Overall it looks like a group of winners to me.  Can't wait to get it started.

Great start! Phone Post 3.0

One week in and everything going according to plan.

Houston series up next.  Can't wait.  The Astros are the real deal this year.

Yep, and it looks like we may avoid their studs on the rotation. Good road test for sure. Phone Post 3.0

Epic ending last night.

So far, so good.  I really like what Kennedy has brought to our rotation and the offense has really picked up the last few games.

Hitting Rank: 10th
