Remember that ten-day stretch where the Kansas City Royals were great? That was fun!

Since the All-Star break, the Royals have gone 25-31. That’s still pretty trash but not quite 90-loss trash and definitely not 100-loss trash. But, really, they’ve been pretty awful. The Royals are going to try to avoid getting swept by the Pittsburgh Pirates tonight in a game that roughly eight people are going to pay attention to, and I am one of those persons.

I cannot come up with a single emotion about this game. But it shall be played anyway.
