2017 Royals Season Preview
The Kansas City Royals had a disappointing season in 2016 after coming from back-to-back World Series appearances the previous two seasons. The Royals were set to have a solid 2017 season due to veterans Eric Hosmer, Salvador Perez , Alex Gordon, and Lorenzo Cain returning as well as a solid rotation consisting of Danny Duffy, Jason Vargas, and Yordano Ventura. However, after the untimely death of Ventura it will be interesting to see if Kansas City can fill the void with someone as talented as Ventura. The Royals have also acquired Jorge Soler from the Cubs in exchange for pitcher Wade Davis and have also signed free agent Brandon Moss.

Royals vs. Indians
The Royals and Indians have been playing for decades, but the rivalry didn’t really gain traction until both became founding members of the AL Central in 1994. Since then these two teams have played almost 19 times a season, becoming all too familiar with each other. The Indians dominated the early days of the AL Central, and the Royals have been fighting to regain the success of the 1980’s. Look for the Royals to make that breakthrough in the next few years, and for this rivalry to really heat up.
Royals vs. Cardinals
Known as the I-70 series, this rivalry is a battle for the hearts of baseball fans in Missouri. These two teams met for the first time in the 1985 World Series and have played over 70 times since. With the inception of interleague play in 1997, this became an annual series, much to the delight of the fans. The Cardinals hold an edge in the series, but the Royals won the only World Series matchup between them.

2016 Kansas City Royals Season Preview
The Kansas City Royals came into last season with unfinished business, and bullied their way to their first World Series title since 1985. The victory came with their first AL Central Pennant in over 25 years, and kept baseball fury alive in Kansas City. The Royals return in 2016, with their sights set on cementing their legacy. The core of the Royals 2 AL title teams, and their World Series club from a year ago returns, with Kansas City locking down Alex Gordon and Lorenzo Cain to long term deals in the offseason. While the Royals now iconic bullpen is largely intact, the Crowns will rely on Edison Volquez to move into the ace spot in their rotation, and newcomer Ian Kennedy ads another veteran arm. Winning back to back World Series titles hasn’t been done in over a decade. But the 2016 Kansas City Royals have the pluck and experience to break that trend. Kansas City Royals ticket prices reflect this optimism, with Royals opening day tickets toping the charts for 2016.
2015 Kansas City Royals Season Preview
The Kansas City Royals fell just short of having a dream season in 2014. The Royals made the MLB postseason for the first time in almost 29 years, and then went on one of the most historic runs in MLB Postseason history. Kansas City rattled off 8 straight postseason wins, the most consecutive wins in a single post season ever. The Royals magical run ended with an American League title, but the team came up just short in the World Series. The 2015 Kansas City Royals will try and avoid a World Series hangover and come back to finish the job of bringing a title back to Kansas City. The Royals will have to do so without some of their top stars from the last few years. Gone for 2015 are James Shields, Raul Ibanez, Norichika Aoki, Billy Butler, and Luke Hochevar. To replace them, the Royals brought in Kendrys Morales, Ales Rios, and Kris Medlen to try and fill the gaps and keep the Royals as contenders in the AL Central. No team had more excitement surrounding their season last year than the Royals and their trip to the World Series was one of the best moments baseball has had in some time. Expect the 2015 Kansas City Royals to have a mountain of support and for them to be alive in the playoff hunt late into September.
