It took me almost six years to warm up to any of the KC teams. But I was getting excited about the Royals, especially when they hired the new manager Trey Hillman and were courting Torii Hunter in the off-season.
Another loss today, their 14th of 50 games in which they’ve scored zero runs or one. The Royals are a decent 21-15 when scoring two or more runs. I suppose things could be worse. If they had gone 0-6 against the Tigers instead of 6-0 (sorry, Dale) Detroit would have the division lead and KC would have the worst record in baseball.
Today was another amazing day for them. They got ten hits, but plated only one run.
