The Royals take care of business

Baseball fans get excited when the best teams come to town, but a series against a cellar-dweller may be more important.

Go 10-10 during a 20-game stretch against teams with winning records—and that’s what the Royals did recently—and you’re satisfied. But when you play teams like Chicago and Minnesota, you need to beat up on them. That’s where you build your record.
