AL infected by Royals' sick record at Kauffman?

Walk this one back:

The KC Royals by far have the worst home record in all of baseball, at 14-23.

The Royals are one game out of last place in the American League's
Central Division (yeah, raining on the good news parade again during
All-Star week).

And the American League just fell behind 5-0 in the first inning in
tonight's game when one of baseball's best pitchers - Justin Verlander
- gets bombed. (Although Jose Bautista might have helped him out with
a little better defense.)

So the Royals, who are just sick in a bad way at Kauffman, aren't
giving the American League any home team advantage. At least yet.
