I know, I know...it's only been 2 games.

But how bad will they be this year? Every time I go to check how Bonderman is doing, Detroit seems to have piled on more runs, EVERY TIME!!!

Is this team a lock for 100 losses? 110? More?

I'd say 100 losses is a pretty good estimate.

How many did they lose last year? Pile a few more on there. Their team has actually managed to get worse in the off-season.

It's nothing more than speculation at this point, but it seems that their awfulness has actually managed to crush Greinke's psyche.

This is quite possibly one of the worst looking teams on paper that I can remember. Even Florida, who has 6 rookies in their lineup doesn't look nearly as abd.

Throw in the fact that Sanders/Sweeney will most likely be traded to a contender by July, I can totally see this team being one of the worst if not THE worst team in this era.

The Royals are going to have to work very hard to match the second most losses of all time.

On another note, the Royals are praying they can be as good as the 2006 Tigers three years from now. Bulter and Gordon will help, but they better be Nostradamus when it comes to the draft.

i have a bet that we lose more than 88. That looks like easy money right now.

The Royals have no pitching whatsoever. A few good arms in the pen in sisco and burgos but there are no starters. Butler and Gordon will help but we wont develop any pitching and we cant afford to sign any1.

It's hopeless but I still root for my team.

When Scott Elarton is your ace then your looking at 100 loses easy. I lived in KC for 8 years and was a loyal fan for the last 20 years until they traded Beltran and I finally cut the cord lol. That organization doesn't even try to win so I won't root for them until the Management changes.
