The Royals Final Act

You don’t have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step. —Martin Luther King, Jr.     In a fitting end to an already wild up and down season for the Kansas City fans, both Jarrod Dyson and newest speed demon Terrance Gore utilized their God gifted talent of pure speed to overcome a lackluster offensive night by the Royals. That’s what speed do…..too….two...

VIDEO: Joe Nathan Picks Off Jarrod Dyson

Jarrod Dyson committed one of the all-time boneheaded baserunning you’ll ever see on Tuesday night, and the Detroit Tigers’ Joe Nathan took advantage to lock up a save.

Does Gore's arrival make Dyson the second-fastest Royal?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The moment diminutive outfielder Terrance Gore showed up in the Royals' clubhouse Tuesday after being called up from Double-A Northwest Arkansas, everyone wanted to know: Who is faster, Gore or Jarrod Dyson? Gore, who measures in at all of 5 feet 7, 159 pounds, has been named the fastest baserunner in the Royals' system for three straight years, according...

Dyson Still Sucking Up The Steals

We discuss Jarrod Dyson a lot in this column. He's truly what cheap steals are all about. In limited plate appearances he is able to get on base and swipe bags. Not an ideal player to own in weekly leagues, but he can be a huge boost in the steals department for fantasy players in leagues with daily roster moves. So while the Prince of SAGNOF has gotten some love here both in...

Dyson returns to a familiar role as Royals search for offense

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Just when Jarrod Dyson perhaps thought he might have locked down a somewhat full-time job, along comes Raul Ibanez. Ibanez was in the lineup for the second straight day Wednesday, hitting sixth, as manager Ned Yost and general manager Dayton Moore obviously are trying to jumpstart an inconsistent offense. It would appear now that Ibanez wasn't brought in just...

Jarrod Dyson keys Royals sweep of Sad Sox

by John Viril— Reserve outfielder Jarrod Dyson proved his worth in Sunday’s 4-2 12th inning victory over the Chicago White Sox. Dyson punched out two hits in four at bats, stole two bases, scored the go-ahead run, and saved the game with a clutch outfield assist in the bottom of the 11th. Manager Ned Yost had to be glad he wrote Dyson’s name on the lineup card. The post Jarrod...

Jarrod Dyson: Fastest man in baseball?

KANSAS CITY, Mo. The way Royals manager Ned Yost sees it, there is fast and then there is "Dyson fast." So while Yost acknowledges there are other players in baseball who have elite speed Peter Bourjos and Mike Trout of the Angels, Dee Gordon of the Dodgers and Michael Bourn of the Indians, for example there really isn't anyone faster than Royals' outfielder...
