Oh and MLB.TV’s mosaic is AWESOME. Not trying to sound like a tool, but if you were looking to kill some time, look no further.
Despite being spotted a six-run lead (including three first-inning homers–EVEN ONE BY DOUG MIENTKIEWICZ!!!) the Royals have lost their 13th consecutive game. It is the second longest losing streak in Royals history. The longest? That was last year.
The Royals are currently slated for a 122-loss season which would break the 20th Century watershed mark of futility: the 1962 EXPANSION New York Mets. (As bad as the Royals could possibly get, it wold require a great summation of effort to top the 1899 Cleveland Spiders who, with 20-134 record, truly hold one of the most untouchable records in all of sports.)
The Royals had never had a single 100-loss season until 2002. Three of the four years saw 100-loss seasons. A 100+ loss 2006 will make for three consecutive 100 loss seasons a (dubious) feat that only one other mlb franchise has ever accomplished.
In the meantime, how ’bout those Burlington Bees?! Buzz, buzz, buzz!
