The Royals are 2-0 for the first time since 2003, when they started 9-0, and eventually 16-3.
That team actually then struggled for another twenty or so games, eventually falling to 27-28, before going on another mini-run that gave them the infamous 7.5 game lead in July, which of course they blew. As I posted today in the comments, in some ways, there are some similarities between what we think this team might be, and what 2003 was.
The 2003 team had a good offense, combining contributions from the late-90s talent mini-boom (Beltran, Ibanez, Sweeney, Randa were still around) with some random good performances by Desi Relaford, Mike Tucker and Berroa. They scored 836 runs, a total that has not been sniffed by the Royals since.
Pitching wise, the team was OK. For long stretches, maybe a little better than that, en route to allowing 867 runs. In just about every way, that team was entirely random, and hardly anyone on the '03 roster is even in baseball anymore, much less still a Royal. The American League Central was also much much weaker, and the Royals went 14-5 against the Tigers, who of course were one of the worst teams ever. The Royals also dominated a rebuilding Indians team, going 13-6 against the Tribe.
