Royals Losing Streak Reaches 10 Games - Kansas City News

After starting the season with a lot of promise, the Royals have hit rock bottom. Kansas City lost its 10th straight game today, falling 5-3 to Toronto. With the loss, Kansas City fell to 3-12 on the season.

Out of all the losses during the losing streak, today's game might have been the best summary as to why Kansas City is off to a terrible start. The offense couldn't generate runs. Danny Duffy threw good pitches, but got rocked in the 5th inning and took his second loss of the season. Kansas City allowed Brett Lawrie to steal home. The Royals went a paltry 1 for 10 with runners in scoring position. The team got two runners on in the bottom of the ninth with only one out, and Bryan Pena hit into a game ending double play. The list goes on and on, but the point remains - this team is playing terrible baseball right now. Kansas City is hosting the 2012 All-Star game, which has allowed Kansas City to receive more regional and national attention than normal. Unfortunately, the team has only made its negative stigma worse this season.

Kansas City will try to salvage a win in the last game of the series tomorrow, which takes place at 7:10 p.m. Bruce Chen (0-1) will get the start for the Royals, while Brandon Morrow (0-1) will start for Toronto. The Royals will start a series with the Indians in Cleveland on Tuesday.

Royals Lose In Third Straight Extra Inning Game

The Royals continue to give fans their money's worth, as nine innings once again was not enough to decide a winner. After winning their first two extended games, the Royals couldn't keep the magic going, falling to the White Sox 10-7.

Joakim Sora, one of the best closers in the league, was to blame for this one. Soria had the White Sox on the ropes - a three run lead with two outs in the ninth - and somehow surrendered four runs and the lead. Soria is one of the best closers in baseball, and this is likely just a rare slip-up from the all-star. When you have a great chance to move to 5-1 on the season and choke like Kansas City did last night, it could be a turning point.

If the Royals begin to lose games and fall apart, this will likely be the game many point at. The Royals' offense has continued to produce, so fans should remain optimistic about the team's chances.

Royals Season Starts Today

The Kansas City Royals' 2011 season officially begins this afternoon against the Los Angeles Angels. It is opening day at the K, where players and fans alike can look forward to the promise a new season brings.

Kansas City has a new opening day starter after Cy Young winner Zack Greinke was traded to the Brewers this offseason. Luke Hochevar gets the start for the Royals, and Kansas City fans never know what to expect from its former first-overall draft pick. Hochevar is as up and down as they come, but many feel he could be poised to finally break out and live up to his draft status and contract.

Recently, Kansas City turned heads as the Royals' minor league system was rated as the best in league history by Baseball America. Most fans feel this season will be another disaster in terms of wins and losses, and I would agree. The Royals are at least a year away from being able to compete for the division, but it should be fun watching the team grow.

Another Miserable Royals Season Comes to an End

Another Miserable Royals Season Comes to an End
I don't know if anyone noticed, but The Kansas City Royals 2010 season has, mercifully, come to an end. 67 wins, 95 losses - uggh. On the bright side, that is two more wins than last year. At this rate of improvement, we can expect to make the playoffs in about 13 years (actually, I would take the playoffs in 13 years). As usual, the Royals finished the season with a bang giving false hope to fans for a turnaround next season winning 7 of their last 10 games.

On top of lame Free Agent signings, now we have a disgruntled young pitching ace who may or may not be traded in the off season depending on who you ask. Greinke has recently, publicly shared his discontent with losing. He's bored - join the club. I think it would be wise to deal Zack now and get a couple of players that make an impact before Greinke has a MAJOR mental meltdown. We can have a going away party like we did for another local sports team star when he left town.

All these years of losing could lead to fan apathy, but that is not really the case in Kansas City. This town wants to love their Royals and they do keep showing up to the K with surprising regularity. The Royals averaged over 20,000 fans per game, though near the bottom of the majors, that is only 3,000 less per contest than the Tampa Bay Devil Rays who have the best record in the American League. Although maybe that says more about Rays fans than it does Royals fans. Oh well - we do have the only undefeated NFL team in the league (until Sunday anyway).

Chiefs Shaun Smith Fined by NFL; Royals on Late Season Tear

Chiefs Shaun Smith Fined by NFL; Royals on Late Season Tear
In Sports, there is all kinds of touching between men that is inappropriate on the street. Hugging, ass slapping, and apparently crotch grabbing as our friends in the picture have illustrated (maybe that's only OK in St Louis). Chiefs Defensive Lineman Shaun Smith, or as the media is starting to refer to him, "The Genital Giant", has been fined $10,000 by the NFL for what it termed as "Unnecessary Roughness" for the crotch grab on San Francisco Lineman Anthony Davis. This comes after the second complaint by an opponent after as many games. This time the incident was (sort of) caught on camera. Though you really can't see the actually grab, it is obvious he does something very painful to Davis, who retaliated and was penalized 15 yards in the game. Smith said in an interview that he doesn't recall doing anything like that. You would think a guy would remember grabbing another guy's balls, but OK.

How about your Kansas City Royals. They are in the midst of one of their patented end of the season runs that does nothing but provide false hope for next season. They have won four of their last five (against two of the best teams in the League) and taken the Rays out of first in the American League East. Last night, Bruce Chen, pitched his first complete game shutout in a 12-year Major League Career. Chen took his season record to 12-7, the best on the Royals pitching staff. His ERA is 4.17 - the same as Zach Grienke's. Is Bruce Chen our new ace? God it sucks to be a Royals fan.
