Fans across the world vote for Royals for All-Star Game


JULY 2015 – I’m sure American League All-Star managers were scratching their heads many years in the 1990s and 2000s and wondering what Kansas City Royals player to put on the team.

There some baaaad Royals clubs in many of those years and quite frankly they did not deserve an All-Star selection. But Major League Baseball requires all clubs to have a representative.

From 1990-2012, the Royals had a lone pick in 20 of those 22 years.

Duffy, Ventura need to step it up for Royals


JULY 2015– Entering July, the Kansas City Royals have a firm choke hold on first place in the American League Central.

Yet, they have done it with only minimum production from Yordano “Ace” Ventura and Danny Duffy, who opened the season as the club’s No. 1 and No. 2 starters.

Ventura won his first two starts, while Duffy was 2-0 with a 3.45 ERA in April. Then Duffy did a 180-degree reversal and went 0-3 with a 13.03 ERA in May.
