MLB Betting Notes: Stats sugggest Royals have played better than 3-13 record

04.24.2012     11:10 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
FanGraphs attempts to explain Kansas City's horrific 3-13 start to the season. Offensively, their overall numbers are slightly below American League average yet they are producing only 3.56 runs per game with the AL average at 4.47. The issue apparently comes from the lack of situational hitting. On the flip side, the pitching hasn't been that bad either but with runners on is where they tend to struggle (.841 OPS). The article later gets into the pythagorean expectation and makes the argument that the Royals have statistically speaking played more like an 8-8 team rather than 3-13. Jeff Francoeur seems to think there are better days on the horizon.


"Talk to us at the end of May and see what our record is," Royals outfielder Jeff Francoeur said. "I still believe we've got plenty of talent in this room to turn it around, and that's what we plan on doing. I wanted to get this one bad tonight just to get one at home."
