Royals the Least streakiest team in the majors!

With the Royals so far this season there has been an absence of streaks good or bad. They are team that has been on the teater totter in all areas of play. They dont loss a lot but they dont win a lot. They hit here and there dont get hot but most havent been cold. There is a lot of gray area when it comes to this team and the stats prove it-

Most wins in a row is obvious and actaully one of the better steaks we have going for us-

Grienke with 5 straight wins bring his recorded to 5-0 with a 0.50 ERA

Longest Hitting Steak- Alberto Callaspo at 10 games

No players on the Royals have had a Homerun in consecutive games.

Sydney Ponson has the most consecutive starts with a lose at three and that is the only active streak on this page.

The Royals as a team have had a winning streak of 3 and a losing streak of 2.

There has been a lot of streaky teams so far this year and I am sure those fans at on point were either pulling out thier hair or jumping for joy. I dont know how I feel about this I am sure the minute I complain that we just dont put anything together the Royals will listen to my pleas and roll off a nice little losing streak. The other thing that I noticed is this team is designed that way. What I mean by this is our starters who pitch 1,2,3  Gil Meche, Zack Grienke, and Kyle Davies all have the ability to take over the game stop a losing streak. Our 4 and 5 pitchers Sydney Poson and currently Brian Bannister have the ability to take our team out of the game and stop a winning steak. Bannister has yet to show this ability but I believe that he has it in him. This pitching rotation makes it hard for us to either get on a roll or to fall off into the pit of abscurity. As a long time Royals fan there is a comfort knowing that we wont go on all these long losing strides that bury us in the standings. On the other hand it is frustrating because it seems like we will never pull away from a very medicore pack right now. What does everyone else think are you in the same boat? Do you feel more secure with this team but frustrated in a new way this year? Do you feel that I am wrong and that the Royals have a streaky ability and if so what is it?? I dont know how I feel I guess you could say I am 50/50 on my team so far this year and thats suiting with a 50/50 ball club
