Opening day



  • @nuleafjhawk I’m a Royals fan only 162 games this year, I think it’s doable. That + though…



  • @nuleafjhawk brooks, global and I use to chat a lot on royals games. Had a few that would join us. That’s why I have so many posts, royals chats. Mow a lil, catch up, mow some more! They left though, and those were the good Royals days.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Maybe this year will be the start of MORE good Royal days!!



  • Still lookin good!



  • Beyond Keller and Junis there are no solid starting pitchers which is concerning. I am not sure if Duffy can ever get back in form and stay healthy.



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I think the chat died out more because of the decline of the Royals. Too bad those guys left though. They were a good part of the site. We’ve lost some more positive assets recently. @KUSTEVE @Kubie @DoubleDD @JayHawkFanToo to name a few. @Ralster just came to mind.





  • @dylans mondesi’s my new favorite! Still miss Locain! Loved watching dyson run too. Don’t know much about Hamilton, but he’s speedy!



  • @Crimsonorblue22 See Mondesi’s inside the park homer?



  • @dylans I missed it! My son called me, guess our bull pen lost it?





  • Didn’t even run hard to first! Thx! Where did Hamilton come from. Busy week here!



  • @Crimsonorblue22 I don’t recall. Mondesi is the 4th fastest Royal this season. I wonder if it’ll translate to any extra wins? They’re just fast for now. Not super skilled.



  • Tough to see bullpen gave away 2 games in a row, while still very early, it does not appear that we have done much to address bullpen issues from last couple of years.



  • @wissox I am still around, and a huge Royals fan. I just got pissed at my cable company and dumped them a year or two ago so got out of the habit of watching games. I fixed that for KUBB games I need to do it for the Royals.



  • @Kubie T-Mobile gave away mlb season passes a couple weeks ago. Maybe you can find one floating around for cheap. I saw one on cheapassgamer.com in the uv sell thread for $25 fwiw.



  • Have to have t-mobile? I will look into it but work provides my phone so I have limits what I can do. But I think the Hulu live package I switch to will cover the royals



  • @Kubie No you don’t have to have T-Mobile. It is just an annual give away they do.



  • @Kubie Good to see you again. We use DirectTV, we like it.



  • Hulu worked fine, although the bullpen not so much. It should work anywhere in the US I happen to be working as well. I guess I will find that out next week.



  • Bullpen is about to blow another one. It’s getting comical.



  • The bullpen is so incredibly bad, Dayton should be fired just for assembling it in the first place.



  • How do you not pinch hit for Maldonado? Isn’t that the point of having Duda on the roster in the first place?



  • NVM, here he comes



  • Bullpen is horrible, absolutely horrible.



  • Seriously, how does Dayton still have a job? He lucked in to a WS and will never even be able to replicate a playoff team.



  • Wow, I WAS excited!



  • I’m kinda worried. 2 game win streak followed by 10 losses. Will a 3 game win streak followed by 15 losses?



  • My brother in-law is all for starting the game with the closers to see what we have to work with that night. 😂



  • @Kcmatt7 The point of having Duda on the roster is so you can sing this song:

    De Campptown ladies sing this song, Duda, Duda

    The Camptown racetrack’s five miles long Oh, de Duda day…

    @Kcmatt7 I just saw this post. Are you out of your mind? Lucked into a WS? This is outrageously uninformed.

    Moore assembled a team that went to one WS, and won another.

    He’s what I can recall of the top of my head that were his doing -

    Moose Hosmer Herrera Perez Holland Volquez Ventura Cain Escobar Zobrist Cueto Madsen Davis Shields Hochaver Morales

    And … he had the fortitude to keep Ned Yost.

    I will be awaiting your attempt to here to explain your … uh … lack of insight.

    Or, better, express with sincere humility that you misspoke and we can all respect you for it.



  • @HighEliteMajor I 100% stand by my statement. Pretty sure we did this same song and dance last season. No reason to rehash it.



  • @Kcmatt7 “He lucked into a WS.” It is unadulterated B.S. I’m sorry. Folks can have opinions, but this one stands alone as the most ignorant in recent memory (apologies for the use of that word, but I can’t find another one that fits). You defame the man who brought us from the cellar to a World Series championship. And not one WS, but two in a row.

    The quote is what I’m focused on. If you want him fired, or whatever, fine. If you don’t think he’ll have another playoff team, fine. But good grief …



  • @HighEliteMajor If you want my response, go dig it up from a year ago. It’ll be the same.



  • @Kcmatt7 I don’t want a response, necessarily. There are folks that don’t think Tom Brady is a great quarterback, as well.



  • Considering what Dayton has to work with, I’d say he has done just fine.



  • @HighEliteMajor Ill give it to you. You know how to push buttons.



  • @Kcmatt7 Ah, I’ll let it go. You’re a good dude … and you’re one of the guys that make this site worth coming to.



  • Royals throwing at Sox batters now. This means war.



  • @wissox Sox getting cocky, flipping bats! We won. Ball slipped🥴⚾️



  • @Crimsonorblue22 Royals acting like sore losers because a man flipped his bat towards the dugout so we must throw at batter. Then Joe West throws out batter. What a jerk Joe West is. He’s the Higgins of MLB umpiring!



  • Bat flipping should not be considering showing someone up. They just hit a 450 foot shot off of you. And you’re pissed about the bat flip?

    Baseballs unwritten rules are so stupid most of the time



  • Did he charge the mound? Only way I know to stop that is to beat the pitchers butt. But ask good old chisox Robin Ventura about charging Nolan Ryan. You’ll get your keister handed to you.

    I don’t mind some masculine preening. I despise the neutering of America.

    Hockey players have it right. Get laid out. Get pissed. Clear out. Let those two fight. It’s done.

    Baseball does not. Throwing a ball at someone who is a sitting duck and 60’ away, knowing that player is unlikely to get hit, shake it off, and charge the mound before their fully armored body guard (the catcher) can get in his way. That’s some pussy shit right there. If you’re pissed he showed you up after a hitting a bomb, go fight him then.



  • @Kcmatt7 I agree with ya’ll. I really don’t mind purpose pitches like yesterday. I don’t mind Timmy stepping to the mound. What I didn’t like is Bleepin Joe West tossing our best player.

    By the way the newest version of the Ryan beatdown was Ovechkin knocking cold a 19 year old in the playoffs the other night. Don’t often see someone getting laid out like that in a hockey fight.

    @dylans You would have to bring that fight up!
