Every Royal batter is batting at a significantly lower average through July than ANY other month except Grudz, Gload and Gathright, and they aren't exactly sparkling. What gives?

May - .308
June - .345
July - .154

Butler
Apr - .295
May - .233
June - N/A
July - .205

Gordon

PS, mlb.com was having trouble with Buck's stats for me, so if someone could post that info, it would be appreciated. Additionally, I excluded Olivo, however he fits the trend, as well.

I think the answer is that we have played a very good schedule in July. June is the best month for many of the players because we were beating up on the joke that is the National League. We played one series against a team with a good pitching staff(White Sox). This month we get 6 games against not so good teams(Sea, Bal) and the rest of the month we get the best of the AL including 2 series against Tampa, 2 against the White Sox, and one against the Tigers who are playing much better than earlier in the season. It's not surprising the average is down.

Most of it looks like water seeking it's own level. April was kind to the Royals hitters but these things tend to even out.

Buck
Apr - .206
May - .300
June - .235
July - .254


Olivo
Apr - .232
May - .333
June - .200
July - .174

Go there. Now. It's all of the sortable analysis you could want on the Royals.

The site has been free all week, but that ends after today.

An interesting trend ive noticed is that the Royals havent made the playoffs in 23 years.

Great insight, Captain Obvious.

No game thread today?

Billy Butler just hit a 3 run HR in the bottom of the 7th to give the Royals a 6-1 lead.

It actually dented the foul pole.

Pretty impressive at bat too. He was down 0-2, then worked a full count. He then proceeded to dent the left field foul pole.

Butler has been hitting well since he came back up. Very well last week or so.

His power numbers are up anyway. His average has actually been pretty weak.

Not only was it a very timely hr, but the at bat itself was outstanding. He battled back with 2 strikes to load the count, fouled a couple off, and then hit a 3 run homer with 2 strikes. Not something we are accustom to seeing from Royal hitters.
