The One Stat That Explains Every MLB Team’s April

Quote
The Royals are hitting .210 as a team.
Kansas City ranks last in almost every offensive category — the Royals have scored fewer runs all season than the Nationals have in the past week — but barely edging over the Mendoza line as a team is perhaps the most embarrassing offense. I wrote last month about 2017 being a make-or-break season for the Royals; at this point, they’re positioned for a July fire sale.

The KC hitting has been horrendous this season and the bullpen was gutted in the off season.  Fortunately we are on track to win the series again in 28 years.

Red Sox wish they could play the Twins everyday.

I ended up with Altuve AND Correa in the GH league this year.  Super happy with both picks :)

I saw that after I looked up their last few games.  Crazy offensive streak.  Hopefully they enter a drought when they visit Kauffman Stadium next week.
