Things haven't gone the Royals' way this season, which isn't exactly news as the calendar turns to July. Though expectations weren't through the roof heading into the 2022 season, it's hard to find someone who expected this team to have one of the worst records in baseball and stay on pace for an 100-loss season. The losing has certainly taken a toll on the players and coaches in the clubhouse, and as 610's Royals Insider Josh Vernier told Fescoe In The Morning on Monday, the tension is palpable.
"I understand that you don't want a clubhouse all jovial when you're one of the four worst teams in Major League Baseball, but I've never really been in a professional clubhouse as quiet, as tense, from Day 1 until here, game number 71," Vernier said. "I've never really been in a clubhouse likes this 2022 Kansas City Royals clubhouse ... There's quite a bit of tension inside that clubhouse."
