Oof - this reads like a bucket of cold water coming off a World Series appearance.

I'm guessing the years-on now under appreciation of the Royals by PECOTA indicates a systemic under appreciation of defense and baserunning.

I'll take the over on wins and the under on starting pitcher ERAs.

I agree. I expect some regression, but 72 wins seems low given the defense and bullpen.

Think there's upside on (relief) pitching here vs PECOTA, Davis & Holland pitched sub 2.00 SIERA last year - I have season RA coming out at ~30 runs less so 75-87 season.
