Yes, the Royals have been thrown out on the basepaths a lot this year

Kansas City Royals left fielder Andrew Benintendi (16) reacts after being thrown out at home against the Oakland Athletics during the eighth inning at RingCentral Coliseum. | Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports Outs at second, third, and home, oh my! Something that I always like to point out about the 2014-2015 Royals World Series teams was that they were the best teams in the league in three facets of the game.

The Penultimate Game: Royals vs. Guardians

Kansas City Royals shortstop Bobby Witt Jr. (7) throws to first base in the sixth inning against the Cleveland Guardians at Progressive Field. | David Richard-USA TODAY Sports Game 161 Here we are: October baseball! Ok, fine, it’s because of the offseason’s tumult and not because the Royals have played great and are in the postseason. But play October baseball they will. October cares not for our human notions.
