Unlucky 13
Jacob Luft at CNNSI (does that TV channel still exist?) has ranked the AL rotations 1-14... Our Royals show up at number 13, which everything being equal injury and luck wise seems about right.

However, I'm starting to think that theres some real upside to this staff, with Greinke and Runelvys being solidly above-average and Lima-Anderson-Gobble morphing into a replacement-level innings sponge. This formula is also known as "The Minnesota Twins starting 5, 2002-3", with or without Kenny Rogers.

By the way, Luft is well-worth reading. You'll eventually see that he's down with advanced metrics, (his recent columns have used DiPS and VORP, which would get you fired from espn.com) park factors etc.

Watch out Devil Rays... the Royals are coming for ya...
