You don’t have rivalries with bad teams http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/judging-the-royals/article19462344.html#storylink=rss If you’re mediocre, people don’t hate you. That helps explain what’s been going on with the Kansas City Royals this season. The Royals are no longer an underdog; they’re the American League champs. The Royals are good and they know they’re good and other teams are feeling less charitable toward them.

Royals hope to return to playing baseball ‘like civilized people’ as series continues with White Sox http://www.kansascity.com/sports/mlb/kansas-city-royals/article19430595.html#storylink=rss The tension of Thursday night’s on-field scuffle with the White Sox cooled in time, and the Royals celebrated their extra-innings victory like any other. But they awoke to a world where their actions remained under scrutiny. The schedule on Friday called for a baseball game. The Royals sought to simply play one, rather than take part in another evening filled with drama.

Becoming Yordano: A journey to the launch point of the Royals’ rocket arm http://www.kansascity.com/sports/mlb/kansas-city-royals/article8048988.html#storylink=rss Yordano Ventura quit school at 14 and was working construction until his big break: a tryout that led to a spot in the Kansas City Royals’ academy in the Dominican Republic. But even after making the major leagues and pitching in the World Series, Ventura wouldn’t live anywhere else than Las Terrenas, his hometown, where he trained on the beach and swam in the ocean.

Could Alex Gordon have scored in the World Series? Watch our re-enactment of the play http://www.kansascity.com/sports/mlb/kansas-city-royals/article10159457.html#storylink=rss The decision to stop the Royals’ Alex Gordon at third base in the most pressure-packed moment baseball can provide — bottom of the ninth, two outs, home team trailing by one run in the seventh game of the World Series — stands as perhaps the greatest what-if moment in Kansas City sports history. So, with the help of the Rockhurst University baseball team, we re-enacted the play and captured in photo and video what might have happened if Gordon kept running.

Royals must address Yordano Ventura’s emotional misadventures http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/vahe-gregorian/article19380393.html#storylink=rss It no longer can be doubted that Royals starting pitcher Yordano Ventura has developed an issue with self-control. And it’s an issue that’s tainting the image of the Royals, whose demonstrative style of play is abrasive to some to begin with. Their abandon, combined with Ventura’s antics (and Kelvin Herrera’s wild behavior against the A’s), has in the span of a few weeks whisked the Royals from cuddly underdogs to virtual villains in the national lens.

Take me out to the brawlgame: Breaking down the Royals vs. White Sox fight http://www.kansascity.com/sports/spt-columns-blogs/judging-the-royals/article19415421.html#storylink=rss Like most baseball fights, Thursday night’s brawl in Chicago between the Royals and White Sox wasn’t nearly as bad as it looked. Friday morning I watched video of the fight — pretty much frame by frame — and I didn’t see all that many punches being thrown; it was mainly a lot of pushing and shoving by guys not that all that interested in really fighting punch.
