KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Kansas Citians 30 and under must be getting tired of listening to parents and grandparents talk about the good old days when the Royals were competitive.
With 96 losses in 2010, the Royals finished last for the sixth time in 10 years. Their postseason drought, dating to the 1985 World Series, reached a quarter-century.
This was a season when manager Trey Hillman got fired and general manager Dayton Moore wept at the announcement.
It was also a season when reigning Cy Young winner Zack Greinke was 10-14 with a 4.17 ERA and complained about the organization.
