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. Yael T. Abouhalkah
