Third straight World Series trip for Royals? Not likely

As the 2016 MLB season approaches, SN’s Je se Spector will examine each team’s outlook. Today: the Royals. 2015: 95-67, first place in Dave Concepcion Jersey American League Central, won World SeriesMORE: These MLB players could be 2016 breakout stars Key arrivals: RHP Dillon Gee, RHP Ian Kennedy, RHP Joakim SoriaKey departures: RHP Johnny Cueto, RHP Greg Holland, OF Alex Rios, 2B Ben ZobristBest-case scenario: A repeat of last year, although, to be fair, trade deadline moves for two of the best available players on the market probably isn’t realistic this time around. What the Royals want to do, though, is keep on keeping on, playing the game where their starting pitchers keep them close and an ultra-aggre sive style combined with a nasty bullpen adds up to enough wins to roll to a third straight trip to the playoffs. Once there, we already know that the ultra-aggre sive style and nasty bullpen can add up to enough wins to bring home the championship.Worst-case scenario: Edinson Volquez starts to slip, Ian Kennedy is a disaster, Yordano Ventura does not take the next step toward being a bona-fide ace and the Royals, without anyone able to reliably provide a seven-inning start from time to time, wear down their bullpen to the point of inefficacy in the stretch run. With improved competition acro s the division and a low-power lineup that runs into opposition that has put more of an emphasis on defense to curtail their BABIP succe s, Kansas City falters to finish out of the playoffs.MLB 2016: More team previews Big question: Will the Royals hit enough? Good as he was in the playoffs, Alcides Escobar is part of a trio with Omar Infante and Jarrod Dyson (or Paulo Orlando until Dyson is healthy) that hardly inspires fear in American League pitchers. That leaves very little margin Devin Mesoraco Jersey for regre sion through the rest of the lineup in which the most reliable on-base guys are the big bats in the middle of the order. When your strategy is to keep games on a knife edge, it’s not hard to tumble off.Don’t forget: No team has been to the World Series three straight times since the 1998-2001 Yankees went to four in a row, and with no offense meant to the Royals, those New York teams were working with more in the way of resources to reload for an annual pennant chase.Five crazy-sounding words you can cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk, cheap kamagra pills uk. https://www.redsedges.com/cincinnati-reds/barry-larkin-jersey talk yourself into not sounding so crazy: Eric Hosmer hits 30 homers.Over-the-top proclamation to regret later: The Royals will make it back to the playoffs, but with so many teams having played the copycat game and built bullpens full of big arms, a taste of Kansas City’s own medicine will be the undoing of the defending champions’ championship defense.
