Dan Quisenberry is Rolling in His Grave

Seventeen losses in a row for the Royals? Ouch. And only four away from the AL record of 21 set by the 1988 Orioles. This could possibly be a once-proud franchise reaching rock bottom. It can't get much lower than this, can it?

I wonder if the Royals will make the cover of Sports Illustrated for their futility, a la that crummy Orioles team. Probably not. They have no Cal Ripken. Only a waterfall in their outfield and Mike Sweeney, and he's probably gone soon, too.

Didn't the Royals have Johnny Damon, Carlos Beltran and Jermaine the same time? That outfield would be just silly today were the Royals not among MLB's so-called poor sisters.

Incidentally, when was the last time the Royals were on the cover of SI?
