8th: Kansas City Royals
The Kansas City Royals are in a tight race for the worst team in the league. They did win the World Series in 2014 and are now paying the price for it. They aren’t good and couldn’t keep being an elite team going for very long. They fell off quickly after winning and here they are competing for the title of worst team in the league. Things might also get tougher for them before they get better.
Once again, in a short season, one hot week could make things look a lot better for you in the final standings and the White Sox have to understand that. Historically, the Royals always play the White Sox very well no matter where one another are in the standings. This year might not be any different so the White Sox needs to be ready.
The White Sox are going to play the Royals ten times this year so having a winning record against them is very important. Seven of the ten games against them are going to be in Kansas City which is less than ideal but it shouldn’t matter where the games are in this case. The White Sox need to have a good year against the Royals as the second-worst team they will play.
