If you haven’t noticed, the Royals are in a bit of a scuffle.
The Royals have been losers in seven of their last nine games and haven’t won back-to-back games since April 21 and 22 against Detroit and Baltimore.
It has been a while.
However, despite the struggle as team, the starting pitching has stayed consistent, albeit unspectacular at times.
New Kings Of Kauffman staffer Bryon Parman took a look at the starting rotation on Thursday, and I plan on taking an even deeper look sometime next week.
To give an abstract of the train of thought I’ll look into, we are beginning to see a regression from the starters.
However, it is partially why we are seeing the Royals struggle. The Royals haven’t hit, really, all season, but the starting rotation picked up the slack with a torrid start and tag-teamed with the bullpen to jump the Royals out to a 12-6 start.
Naturally, the rotation came back down to earth, and thus far, the offense hasn’t caught up. Hence, this 10ish game slide.
So, look for that later this week or early next week.
As for today, let’s look at this weekend’s series against Francisco Lindor and the Indians.
