I'm guessing the Rotation will look like so:
theinsidepitch wrote:#1 Jose Lima
#2 Zack Greinke
#3 Mike Wood
#4 Brian Anderson
#5 Jimmy Gobble
I could see them getting 60 wins with that rotation.
All indications on KC radio and in the Star indicate it will be Hernandez instead of Wood. (Like it will make a big difference!)
Keep in mind the Royals were in first place in the AL Central as late as August of '03, when the wheels completely fell off. Injuries devastated them last season and poor performance from some of their FA acquisitions (Juan Gone & Santiago)
I'm not naive enough to think they will contend for the division crown, but they could play a spoiler's role and knock someone out of it.
