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.

I would be very, very surprised if Wade Davis' ERA nearly tripled, or if Herrera surpassed him in value. 70 QS from the entire rotation also seems very pessimistic. This projection is expecting every single KC pitcher's WHIP to regress, as well as no pitcher to even post a winning record.
