Your math is correct, sir. Our Royals would need to win approximately 60.34% of their remaining games to finish at .500

A team that plays .600 ball in an entire year usually wins the division and gets seeded about #2 in the playoffs.

A team that plays .400 ball in an entire year is considered to be absolutely horrible and receives about the #3 pick in the draft.

We are currently playing even worse than the .250 pace set by the 1962 Mets, the storied "worst team in baseball history".

We arent just bad, we could re-write history on how badly a team could potentially suck.

At least Gay rod is on my fantasy BB team.

That's some consolation I guess.

05-27-2006, 04:41 PM
So we're being whooped by a Yankee Wang?

Really, what's the point. I can't take it anymore.

Also, I like how they're keeping in Affeldt. The game is out of reach, even if we won its not like we're making it to the playoffs... let him reap what he sews. Hell, if it wouldn't make him even worse next rotation, I'd say to make him play the whole 9 innings.

It was interesting to see somebody on our team actually reacting to playing really shitty. affeldt was really pissed off, hopefully something will change a little with that. They need to ****ing have a huge ass fight in the locker room and pull their ****ing idiot heads out of their asses!!! Thats the only way this year can be spared and keep it around 110 losses.

they just really need to kick the shit out of eachother and people need to let them do it and not break them up.

Affeldt was part of the problem. He was pitching batting practice today. One thing is for sure, a few players need to pack their shite and head back to the minors.

Oh yah, he was nearly the full problem. Im just glad to see him pissed off at himself and showing it big time, rather than just going to sit down on the bench. Some emotion is what that team needs
