The Majors' Hardest Team to Strikeout - BtB

"Yup, the Royals are currently flashing the second-best batting average in the majors at .280, just a single point behind the scorching hot Texas Rangers. I'm guessing that Dayton Moore considers his offense a relative success, but they're firmly middle-of-the-pack due to the fact that making contact seems to be their primary discernible skill. They've had some handy luck with BABIP, as they sit at .311 as a team.... "As a team, the Royals have the second-lowest walk rate in baseball ahead of only the Astros, and they are in the bottom ten in the game in isolated power as well. They have the highest contact rate in the majors at 85.6%, as well as the lowest whiff rate in the game as well. Put it all together, and you have the most difficult team to strike out in the game. The Royals have built an offense that is quite adept at making contact and avoiding strikeouts. The problem is that it's not particularly good at scoring runs. Somebody should call Alex Gordon and Kila Ka'aihue."
