Royals Rumblings - News for January 27, 2022

Stick around and leave a comment! Royals Rumblings - News for January 27, 2022 Mark Polishuk at MLB Trade Rumors looks at how AL teams have addressed their weakest position. Kansas City didn’t get much from right field or the corner infield spots, as third base (-1.0 bwAR) and first base (-0.7 bWAR) were also sub-replacement level positions. Hunter Dozier is a key figure in this equation, as he dragged down all three positions with his rough showing in 2021. Carlos Santana also contributed to the first base woes with the worst season of his career, but the veteran slugger...

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports The season of a lifetime The face of this franchise, Salvador Perez, just put up by far the best offensive regular season of his career in 2021. The numbers he produced are up there with some of the greatest seasons ever by a catcher. His stats are shown below: In a Royals year full of ups and downs and players underperforming, the one constant was Salvador Perez. His batting average never dropped below the .260s in a full month, his OPS never below .778, and he had at least five home runs each month. He was the definition of consistent...

How the KC Royals managed to lose 19 straight games

It was July 26, and 2005 had already been cruel to the KC Royals. The club was trapped in a season already lost, mired almost 30 games behind American League Central-leading Chicago, their opponent for that night’s game, and stood a miserable 27 games below .500. But thanks to an uncharacteristic six-run sixth inning, the Royals […] How the KC Royals managed to lose 19 straight games - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - KC Royals News, Rumors, and Fan Community

KC Royals Trades: 4 great past deals with Cincinnati

When a trade happens, it’s difficult to assess who will initially have the better end of the deal. For example, a player who may be down for one team may reignite his bat with another, and on the flipside, a great player may struggle in a new environment. The KC Royals have found themselves at […] KC Royals Trades: 4 great past deals with Cincinnati - Kings of Kauffman - Kings of Kauffman - KC Royals News, Rumors, and Fan Community

Photo by Ed Zurga/ Pretty good weekend for Royals owner Patrick Mahomes! Vahe Gregorian writes about the five-year anniversary of Yordano Ventura’s tragic death.

He even told Ventura he could live in his home. Or with Rene Francisco, now the Royals’ vice president of international operations who had signed the 17-year-old Ventura for $28,000 in 2008.
