Here’s a little secret, Jeremy Guthrie is one of my favorite ballplayers. It started many years before he joined the Royals when he was playing for the Orioles, his eighth year in the Major Leagues already. He appeared on a podcast with Jay Mohr and over the course of the next 90 minutes, he […]
The Kansas City Royals uniform has gone through very few major changes since its inception in 1969. Now, I’m specifically talking about the home whites. Crafted off of the Los Angeles Dodgers uniforms, the script ROYALS across the front and the color scheme has been pretty recognizable these past 50 years.
Oh, sure, the home […]
I have found yet another website to write for for free. If you’ve been following the big boy sportswriters lately, many of them have been laid off from sites like ESPN, Fox News, and Baseball Prospectus. Most of them have recently started attaching their names to The Athletic.

It has been said that if you don’t shoot, you don’t score – so in that spirit, I wanted to make a last ditch effort here.

It’s baseball season once again in Kansas City. That means heading out to The K, grabbing a dog, maybe a cold beer and watching the Boys in Blue. Over the past several years, grabbing a ticket has gone from simply driving out and picking one up at the box office, to something you need to […]
You can see it in his eyes when I begin to speak. The eye-roll. The body language slumping. You can certainly tell that for the next 15 seconds he’s not going to be listening to anything I say. But I say it anyway.
Eat your vegetables. Don’t forget a jacket. Wear pants, it’s 12 degrees […]
It does seem like ages ago, doesn’t it?
One of my favorite shows and upcoming stars is Katie Nolan and her show Garbage Time on FS1. She’s been doing web-content for years, and it’s great to see her finally rise to fame.
As part of a promotion for Reebok, she asked random New Yorkers who […]
Five years ago, the Royals stepped out of their traditionally tight control of their message and turned it over to a rag-tag group of bloggers. For a night.
It was 2011, and the Royals were in the midst of an historically bad decade of losing baseball. Their new manager, Ned Yost was grumbling through his […]
