I'm convinced something happened on the night of May 7th, some sort of cosmic intervention. The universe clearly didn't like the Royals and the next day they sat out on a west coast road trip and their season has gone south ever since. They are just 19-38 since that fateful night. It's easy enough to come up with reasons like injuries but the bottom line is outside of the starting rotation this team has just fell apart. So I was curious to see how the players performed before and after - most I figured would be worse and a few would be better.
