The bullpen is solid again, Perez is healthy all year. Gordon has an MVP type season with Butler not far behind. Worst: 69-93 (4th place)Shields shows wear and tear on his arm, barely making 20 starts. Santana has a Luke Hochevar type 5.50 ERA. Guthrie shows his age making KC regret the contract. Hosmer continues to flail away at pitches and barely has an OPS over .700, Gordon battles injuries and barely plays 100 games. Cain can't stay healthy. Francouer/Getz/Hayes have a .640 OPS over 800 PAs combined. A couple of guys in the pen(Collins, Herrera) have down years.Realistic: 79-83 (3rd place)Shields is solid but more a #2 than #1. Guthrie provides 180 innings of 4.50 ERA. Santana has a good game here or there but is inconsistent. Pen is solid. 2B & RF are liabilities. Gordon/Butler are solid as usual. Perez proves for the entire season to be the best all around catcher in the AL.

You really think next year's team is only 5 wins better than last year?Best: 90-72Worst: 76-86Realistic: 85-77I know this seems optimistic, but com'n. We improved FOUR rotations spots, at least 2 of them will prove to be significant, and all four could. We get a full year from Perez and hopefully Cain, and there is no way Hosmer and Frenchy can be worse than they were last year. The only player I see as possibly regressing is Escobar. Could they bomb again next year? Anything is possible. But there is no reason they should.EDIT: I should say that these predictions do not account for injury, which is impossible to predict. Hopefully the tide will turn in our favor this year after being terrible to us last year.
