Using 2.25 ERA as a cutoff point, no team with what you might call a dominant starter and closer has come close to losing the 93 games (so far) that the Royals have lost.
In other words, a baseball team this bad doesn't just happen. It takes work. This year's Royals--except for Grienke and Soria--can therefore stake a good claim to being the Worst Major League Baseball Team Ever.
Well done, guys, well done.
