Alex Gordon LF KC 3 Days
Alex Gordon went 3-for-3 with an RBI against the White Sox on Thursday.
Gordon singled in the second, drove home a run with a single in the bottom of the third, and tripled in the fifth. His numbers last season weren't quite as good as they had been in 2011-12, but he's reliable for 15-20 homers and ten-plus steals.

Alex Gordon had a two-run double in the Royals' win over the Padres Saturday.
It was Gordon's only hit in two at-bats, and the left fielder also walked once. He also batted fifth in the lineup, which manager Ned Yost said would likely be the case all season. The 30-year-old is one of the more steady outfielders in the game and should be once again in 2014.

With the offseason acquisition of Norichika Aoki, Alex Gordon will likely bat fifth in the lineup for the Royals this season, according to Jeffrey Flanagan of FOX Sports Kansas City.
Royals manager Ned Yost said Aoki will likely bat leadoff with Omar Infante, Eric Hosmer, Billy Butler and Gordon following. The move down in the lineup will hurt Gordon's runs scored but will boost his RBI opportunities and should also allow him to focus more on driving the ball than getting on base. However the lineup shakes out, Gordon should remain one of the more productive fantasy outfielders for 2014.

Royals signed GM Dayton Moore to a two-year extension through 2016.
The Royals essentially committed to Moore's plan when they went through with the James Shields-Wil Myers swap last winter, so it makes sense to stick with him for now. That said, they'd likely be in better position for the long haul right now had they fired him and manager Ned Yost a year or two ago.

Alex Gordon went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer against the Indians on Monday.
Gordon came through in the eighth. Unfortunately, he couldn't do it again with the bases loaded in the ninth, but the blame for that whole mess should really go to Ned Yost for pinch-hitting Carlos Pena and George Kottaras in situations in which a single would have given the Royals the lead. Along with hitting his 18th homer tonight, Gordon stole his 10th base. He has nine hits in his last five games.
