I agree with you on this. They have a good chance of finishing above .500 this year but I could not bet on it.

I vote stay away--I cant picture KC over 500--so the tendency is take the under--but pitching is improved a bit...dont count on Guthrie to repeat good results.

Don't you think their lineup is underrated? Most of these guys-Hosmer, Moustakis, et al, should get better. They've had bad luck with pitching prospects, but still have a couple real studs coming up.

The law of averages favors the over for KC.

78.5 is way to tough to call for this team. I wouldn't touch this bet. I will say this that the Royals will be better than the Twins but I can't predict by how much.

No way I'd touch this bet. I can pretty easily see KC being anywhere from 10 games over that line to 10 games under it, without surprising me in either instance.

Yep. I have no idea what to expect from that team. They could challenge Detroit for the division or they could challenge the Twins for the cellar.

Same as everyone else - I have them winning 80 games this year but I would not put any of my money on that happening. If everything clicks for them they could contend but since when has anything clicked for KC.

Is it strange that I think the Royals will improve because of better offensive output? I think the youngsters will click having now played a couple MLB seasons together. They put a lot of effort and dollars into the rotation but Santana is a time bomb and Shields pitches much better indoors than out. I don't think that rotation is as good as they think it is.

Over, and I'd actually make this bet.....but man, Vegas is good at this.

I'd bet the over too. Rotation is better, bullpen is very strong. Gordon and Butler are for real. Hosmer, Mous, and Escobar should all improve. They are young and healthy enough to do very well IMHO.
