Just off the top of your head, how many losing streaks of at least five games has the 2019 Royals suffered? I honestly have no idea. No conception of the range. Hell, with how bad the Royals have been, could be between 30-50, or between 17 and 38.
The actual answer: four. Four! Four separate streaks of five or more losses. That’s a lot. Tonight, the Royals hope to avoid their second streak of eight consecutive losses this year. That’s inexcusable but, well, nothing to do about it.
