Not even the most diehard Numenor Kings fan thought the team had much chance at the playoffs this year. But now even the faintest hopes have been put to rest, as the Kings were mathematically eliminated from the postseason hunt today.
Numenor last appeared in the postseason in 2030. This is their 7th consecutive year missing the playoffs, and in total they have not advanced past the regular season 26 times in their 34-year history. In the last 10 seasons, the Kings have missed the playoffs 9 times. Numenor has won the Return of the King Series 2 times in their history.
