On May 23rd the Royals had just completed an 8-2 stretch, mostly on the road, that had them back within 10 games of .500. Their run differential stood at -39.
In the following five games, they went 0-5 with a run differential of -34. I'm not sure if it is the worst five game performance in team history, but it has to be close.
Tony believes the team might be cursed. I'm open to all possibilities at this point.
