How Many Wins for the 2013 Kansas City Royals?

Poll Forthcoming...

In 2012, the Royals finished with the 23rd best record in the majors (30 teams) with 72 wins, 90 losses.

AL Central winners, Detroit finished the regular season with a record of 88-79, and they were the only division winner with less than 90 wins. The World Champion San Francisco Giants won 94 games in the regular season.

The 2013 Royals will field a very similar team offensively with what appears to be a much improved starting rotation. How many wins will this team get in 2013?

I don't think you can underestimate just how bad the starting pitching was last year.
I mean, you can look at overall stats, but they don't really tell the story. There was like 50% of the games in which the team had no chance to win by like the 3rd inning.
I think this team wins 90 this year and really pushes Detroit. This, of course, hinges on the team staying relatively healthy-which we are due to do, and the young players all improving steadily.

LOL at 85+. I cant get my hopes up for this team. Every time I "think this is the year", they let me down. I say 66 wins. Doesn't matter though, baseball sucks.

This is so true. Look at the rotations from 2012-2013 side by side and you're blown away.

Last year, Mendoza was probably the best starter on the team. Now, he's 5th. And a solid 5th.

In fact, our starting rotation gives us a chance to win every night. And with Paulino and Duffy coming back, we're just that much stronger up front.

I voted for the 85-94 option, although I do not think they will get above 90 wins. I see them somewhere between 80 and 90 wins.

The real question is, which players will prove themselves worthy of being traded to a real team?
