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.
Lest we forget the '03 Tigers?
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 don't think they ened to work very hard to match the 03 Tigers when your top three starting pitchers are Elarton, Mays and Affeldt. These guys would be #4 or #5 starter on most teams at their peak.
I would also argue that DeJesus, Grudzielanek, Stairs, Teahen, Buck and Brown would be platoon players at best on most teams. This team is really, really bad.
