In a dark way, breaking the record would befit this club. The Royals have occupied the American League Central cellar since April 30, have one of the worst pitching staffs in the big leagues, and will finish the season with only one winning month (this one). And only because Oakland has lost six more games than the Royals will Kansas City avoid having the sorriest record in the majors
Red Sox win 6-1 over baltimore this afternoon ending with the same last place amount of wins, and loss's as last year.
On another sad note, hall of fame red sox pitcher tim wakefield a 200 game winner, passed away from brain cancer....he was 57
