Overall Outlook: Your Pre-FA Royals.  Hopefully we can make a couple improvements in FA with the cap space we have remaining.  With some luck, this could be our first 100 win team in Kansas City.  It'll certainly be tough in the AL Central, but I think it's a 95 win team right now.

I think the Royals may be okay again next year.  I was worried for awhile this season....fWAR numbers coming later, but kind of excited to see some guys I drafted start to take the next step!

Updated through most recent projections.  Hamilton solidifies CF for this year.  I'd still welcome a LF upgrade or a 1B/DH upgrade at this time.  Other than that, things are looking nearly complete in KC.

Looks good... real good.

Nola and Severino are beasts, and your lineup boasts + defenders across the board !

There's a lot left to chance with sims, but I feel like it's a 97-99 win team on paper right now with a few projections to go.  Winning 95 games is the goal this year, as I think that gets us in the playoffs again, though I'd love to win the division for the first time as a GM here!

Currently, we should be VG or EX in defensive range everywhere except catcher and 1B.

Currently ranked 1A and 1B in the two least relevant defensive positions for Diamond Mind... so you should be good...

I like the depth too... obviously an injury to either Severino or Nola will hurt... and Rendon would be a killer... but otherwise, depth wise, you look solid.

Nice Work my friend !
