Kansas City Royals Must Quit the Moose Excuse

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com       The numbers are atrocious. The numbers are abysmal. The numbers are alarming. Most of all, the numbers are empirical. They do not lie. They are not mistakes. The numbers I’m speaking of are those that belong to Mike Moustakas. Though these numbers are far from complete, they represent the starting point on a chart which is projecting to only go down…way, way down. Here are the numbers...

In Kansas City, April is the Coldest Month

Follow @RoyalsBlue_com     Follow @RoyalsBlue_com How bad have the Kansas City Royals started this year? Going 4-7 and being dead last in runs, runs per game, slugging, OPS, and home runs in the AL is not a good start no matter how you slice it. But good news everyone, its baseball! There are 162 games and we are 6.17% done with the season (for comparison that is 59.5 minutes of one NFL game). If we think back to last year,...
