The Royals and Expected Strikeout Rate

          The Royals experienced their first sweep of the season at the hand of the Yankees over the last weekend.  It is crazy that the Royals went this long into the season (midway through May!) without being swept.  After last year’s 12 game losing streak at the beginning of the season, this is welcome.  However, the Royals have lost 6 of their last 7 games.  I don’t think the Royals will sustain this kind of losing for long, though.
