    I think it seems a bit optimistic. I have them pegged at 77 wins. Vegas had them (last time I looked) at 79.5 wins. So I’d bet the under honestly.

  • Tom, I am with you. I like the addition of Jonathan Sanchez and Jonathan Broxton to the pitching staff, but the loss of Joakim Soria negates that move and the Royals needed a little more improvement to the rotation than a guy who missed most of the 2011 season due to injury.

    Unfortunately, I don’t believe this rotation will be able to be competitive enough even if the offense is able to live up to all of their potential.
