The Craziness Of The Royals With Bruce Chen, Yuniesky Betancourt As Team Leaders

This is the craziness of the Royals.

↵

Journeyman Bruce Chen is a pitcher who, at the moment, is tied for the team lead in wins. This is a guy that may not even make the team next year and he's leading the club in wins.

↵

He's tied with Zack Greinke. Quite the difference in players there for similar production.

↵

I know, I know. Wins aren't an indicator of how well a pitcher is doing but it's interesting nonetheless.

↵

In addition to that nugget, the Royals power is coming from....

↵

...Yuniesky Betancourt!

↵

With the Jose Guillen trade, Betancourt was up there with Billy Butler for the team lead in home runs.

↵

Butler currently has 11 and Betancourt has 12.
