They rattled off some stat saying the Sox have lost eight of their last nine home games. Obviously that is not correct....did they mean 8 of last 9 to KC? Not motivated to look it up right now. It was cool that they called them the "Sox" and not the "White Sox", and I was stunned at how much Stewart knew about Scott Carroll's story this season. My overall impression though was that they were not impressed with the Sox and thought the rest of the AL was a bunch of middling/average teams. Also of note, Bill Kurtis does voiceovers on KC radio.
Yes, the Sox are 1-8 in their last nine home games against the Royals, dating back to the first week of April 2013.

That's crazy they think the Sox have faded in June. The Sox are 5-6 this month, which is pretty consistent with their season-long body of work.
