I wake up this morning, and one of the first things I see on Twitter is this:
.@Matt_davidson24 now has seven homers at Kauffman Stadium this season.
That’s the most by a road hitter in a season EVER … It is April 27th. pic.twitter.com/JVBmGRVssC

Quite the accomplishment for Matt Davidson, for sure, especially when you consider that Kauffman Stadium is not the most home run-friendly ballpark in the league.
As a Royals fan, however, this is the kind of statistic one dreads to see making headlines.
Davidson has had three multi-home run games already this season, and all three of those games took place — you guessed it — at Kauffman Stadium. And since the Royals and the White Sox are division rivals, Davidson will have six more games at the K (including today’s doubleheader) to add to his record.
Royals fans already knew this would be a long season. Now we’re just throwing salt on the wound.
