9-4 Loss vs. Twins, April 27th

For whatever reason, Pena leaves Brian Anderson in as the 7th inning begins.

Anderson had given up four runs and gone over the 100 pitch count. Sure enough, Anderson allows the first two batters to reach base. They both come around to score and the contest is over.

The Royals corner outfielders looked awful, but no errors were awarded to anyone.

Hollywood Beginning to Take Notice

A joke in the new movie "Fever Pitch" has Jimmy Fallon's character (a Red Sox season ticket holder) using the Royals as a punch line.

Fallon threatens to withhold Yankees tickets from a friend and instead allot him his unwanted Royals tickets.

It'll be a cold day in....Leawood before Hollywood green lights a picture dedicated to baseball in Kansas City.


Rumors surfaced in the mid-80's about an 'independent' film project that George Brett and Jamie Quirk were putting together (bu-dum-ching).

Randa's Doing Just Fine with Cincy

Take a look at Joe Randa's first month with the Reds. He's recorded his highest career on-base percentage.

Thank goodness we have a ferocious three headed monster (Truby - McEwing - Graffanino) patrolling third base.

Genius Allard. Pure Genius.


Is their anyway to rid Kauffman Stadium of the annoying JumboTron? If their's one thing I'd love to see the Royals dump quicker than Tony Pena, it's Sony's noisy, oversized television.

This technological terror (-Darth Vader's words, not mine) has turned the ballpark into a loud, obnoxious Christian rock concert.

The T-Bones constructed their playing facility the old fashion way. You get baseball, rather than a bunch of commercials and MLB promotional videos, with a little game action sprinkled in between.

What's Up with Ken Harvey?

The Star's Jeffrey Flanagan had more good news regarding Ken Harvey this morning. The mystery continues as to why he's in Omaha, after being only a year removed from his All-Star appearance.

Soren Petro discussed his theory today: The Royals are attempting to save time on Harvey's service time, which gives them one more year on his contract before he can become a full-blown free agent.

Shirts for the Wal-Mart/Royals Lover in All of Us

The good folks over at now have merchandise for the disgruntled Royals fan. The Royals Rollback shirts helps kill two birds by expressing your frustrations with the team and with David Glass and his business practices.

He threw the ball very well.....update

What would a recap of a Royals loss be without Tony reminding us that the starting pitcher...threw the ball very well.

After Sunday's crushing loss to the White Sox, in which Chicago completed the three game sweep, Pena offered up his usual take on what transpired during the contest:

"Denny threw the ball well for seven innings," Pena said.

If Barid doesn't pull the plug on the Pena show, then prepare to hear this phrase roughly 100 more times between now and October.
