Bad Year
On this date last season, the Royals lost a terrible 10-9 game to the Blue Jays at SkyDome and fell to 17-5 on the season. The Royals blew an 8-1 lead, surrendering 1 run in the 7th, 2 in the 8th and 6 runs in the 9th to complete the collapse.

In the last year, the Royals have gone 72-85, combining a 66-74 finish to the '03 season with the year's lackluster 6-11 start. I could be optimistic, noting that 6-11 isn't really that bad considering how bad the pitching has been, or that the division is pretty mediocre or that there have been injuries etc etc

But still, it really seems like this Royals team is still slowly but surely paying for the hot start of '03, continuing a long slide towards regressing to the mean.
