Royals beat writer for @KCStar (The Kansas City Star)
kansascity.com — It's happened twice now, two nights in a row, and the Royals shouldn't require further proof: While their rotation is much improved over recent seasons, one run isn't often going to be enough. It was Ervin Santana who paid the price Saturday night for failing to pitch a shutout in a 2-1 loss to the Oakland A's.
kansascity.com — JOHN SLEEZER | The Kansas City Star In one of the most exciting finishes in team history, the Chiefs survived a Halloween edition of Monday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium with a 23-20 overtime win against the San Diego Chargers. Can the Chiefs pull away and win the division after their miserable 0-3 start?
kansascity.com — Revamped rotation: The offseason efforts by general manager Dayton Moore and his staff to upgrade a long-deficient rotation are showing considerable short-term benefits. Was James Shields worth surrendering Wil Myers? Was Ervin Santana worth the $12 million rental price? Was Jeremy Guthrie worth a three-year deal.
kansascity.com — The questions Saturday afternoon concerned third baseman Mike Moustakas, his ongoing struggles and how patient the Royals were willing to remain and for how long. But they could have been about first baseman Eric Hosmer or, given the day, any of several players who comprise the Royals' youthful core.
kansascity.com — James Shields continues to pitch like the No. 1 guy the Royals expected when they acquired him in that big off-season deal from Tampa Bay. And the Royals continue to waste his efforts. Shields gave up two runs Friday night in eight innings but only found more disappointment when the Royals’ attack again went quiet in a 2-1 loss to the Oakland A’s at the O.co Coliseum.
