Everything You Could Have Learned This Week, 4/17/15

On umpire bias, unimportant batting order strategies and unconventional deliveries.

This week, huh? I haven't been able to watch as much baseball as I'd like because of schoolwork, Kris Bryant still hasn't batted in the majors, and the new Passion Pit album is really disappointing so far. Isn't that the worst feeling, to be anticipating something for so long and then to be totally let down? Thankfully, baseball never does that to us. Anyway, I've gone on long enough.

The Power of Seven?

Does the Royals' seven-game winning streak tell us more because it came at the start of the season?

A couple of days ago, our friend Rob Neyer asked an interesting question over at Just A Bit Outside. The Kansas City Royals had started out the 2015 season with seven consecutive wins. I guess maybe that whole “Defending American League Champion” thing actually means something. Despite having come oh so close in the 2014 World Series, not many really fancied the Royals as contenders this year. Should the Royals’ seven-game perfect start change our expectations of them?
