Royals Nightly
Tuesday, May 11, 2004
Bradford Doolittle discussed the Royals' offensive woes in today's Star, and notes that the team is right around the league average in batting average, hitting with RISP and % of baserunners reaching home. The problem is that the Royals are the second worst team in the American League in terms of getting people on base.

I didn't think it was that bad.

By the way, did you ever notice how easy the Devil Rays have it from the media? Watch a Rays game sometime, the announcers usually talk about their lineup like its the '82 Cardinals. Or rather, their sepia-toned memories of what the '82 Cardinals weren't really like- which was an speed based offensive machine. The Devil Rays suck, they don't put any "pressure" on the opposing team by having Carl Crawford steal 55 bases a year. You put pressure on the opponent by scoring runs, beating them, and taking their groupies. Not with steals.
