Royals 2012 Win Total Poll

At the 2012 All-Star break, the Royals are 37-47 and 9.5 games back in the division. With very little chance of gaining a wild card slot, the Royals need to win the division for post-season play.

Despite the early season 12-game losing streak, the Royals have battled to two consecutive winning months - April 6-15, May 15-13, June 14-13.

There are 78 games remaining in the schedule: 18 in July, 29 in August, 28 in September, 3 in October.

Interesting observations:

  • Due to interleague play, 11 of 14 American League teams have a .500+ record
  • 17 games against the two teams with worse records
  • 43 games within division
  • 44 homes games, 34 road games (balances road trip before All-Star Game)
  • Two toughest teams play in Kansas City 10 of 13 games
  • The two American League teams not on the schedule are the Blue Jays (.500) and Yankees (.612).

All things considered, the schedule favors the Royals in many areas. It would be easy to speculate how the additions of a few players like Cain, Myers and Jake, and better play from key players like Hosmer and Luke, could result in meaningful September games.
