Setting Benchmarks - How Many can the Royals Lose

The Royals have lost 10 in a row - a pretty impressive achievement of futility for a team that started the season with a sweep of the Tigers.

But let's not get too excited . . .

A few short years ago, the 2005 Royals managed to piece together a 19-game losing streak, and (seriously) toasted themselves with champagne when they completed the streak.

Lots of teams set their goal at winning 100 games. The Royals do, too, but they are content to take a couple years reaching that goal.

I think Dan meant that over the course of a couple years, the Royals will win a hundred games. Last year, they won 69, and they've won 21 so far this yeaqr, so they're only 10 games away . . .
