72 wins 90 losses.


Been self-condition for the Royals losing for decades and won't change me until they start winning. I remember the Mike Sweeney, Carlos Beltran and Johnny Damon days.

82-80.

If only because I have a $100 bet with my buddy that the Royals finish above .500

If all of those individual things happen, the Royals will be several games better than .500.

If all of those things happen, they Royals will probably make the playoffs, barring other key individuals having terrible years.

My prediction, however:

85-77

For some reason I'm feeling real good about Moose this season, even with his miserable performance the 2nd half of last year.

If all of those individual things happen, the Royals will be several games better than .500.

86-76, would be happy with .500

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 04/01/13 09:58 AM

With a replacement-level manager, I would say this is an 85-win team. However, must apply the "Yost penalty" which leads me to 78 wins.

I'm far from sold on the starting rotation and there's still that gaping, Grand Canyon-sized hole in RF. That said, team is in much better shape now where the focus is "what needs to be improved" vs. 5-6 years ago of: "what doesn't need to be improved?"

Biggest improvement over '12: Moose.
Biggest disappointment (Frenchy doesn't count): Santana.

Very glad to have the distraction of baseball starting.

Ditto.

One of the reasons I posted. Complete opposite of what was posted. Haha.

But Frenchy was dumped at the All-Star break. So good call by jamma.

I wasn't going too far out on a limb and made no individual predictions. But so far, my prediction doesn't look completely unrealistic.

My 87-75 may be a bit of a stretch. Haha

Well Hosmer is actually hitting close to .290. Gordon will get another Gold Glove with his perfect fielding percentage and his 8 assists.

Moose will not go for 30 HR. (-)
Hosmer will finish better than .275. (+)
Gordon should get another GG. (+)
Butler will not reach either benchmark. I am a bit surprised he isn't close though. (-)
Colon will not replace Getz (though he couldn't be much worse). (-)
Wade Davis may be a steal if he is moved into the bullpen, but so far, no. (-)
Frenchy was gone by the ASB. (+)

3/7 isn't terrible.

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 07/31/13 04:02 PM

It's interesting to think how good the Royals might be, however, if Moose was on pace for a 30+ HR season, Butler was hitting for great average and power, and Wade Davis was sticking in the rotation with a sub-3.75 ERA. Most of us thought that the Royals would be in the playoffs if jamma was correct on all of those things, I presume.

I think they would be close to a lock.

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 07/31/13 04:10 PM

He said Hosmer would hit .275...he never said anything about finishing higher than it smile

I wasn't in on this. But if I was, I would have predicted that David Lough would be a playing like a solid everyday outfielder.

Wow..

Yeah, I'm pretty proud of that one. I was wondering when someone might dredge that up. Oh well, can't win 'em all (well, unless you are ahead of the Royals while they are in an 8-game winning streak).

Here, maybe this one will flop as well: Royals won't make the playoffs this season.

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 09/26/13 11:32 AM

Royals currently at 83-74 with four games remaining @ Shite Sox.

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 09/27/13 03:26 PM

Actually they were 83-75 before last night. If they win the remaining 3 games, my prediction of 87-75 will be spot on.

I am thinking my 86-76 is looking good right now.

Re: '13 Season Predictions - 09/29/13 04:10 PM

Yes congrats...you won. I find it amazing they finished this well after that terrible May and those 2 mini losing streaks. Now go brag about winning on the .net also...oh wait..nevermind...lol
