I'd drive the 20 miles there to interview but when they asked for my first prediction it would be 100 losses and they'd fire me for my honesty.

Gorgeous stadium though.

I'd at least ask to see your calculations before I fired you.

I have the Royals a bit over .500 in my rough early projections

Well, it was a joke given how bad they were. They've improved in recent years though and are now just "crappy".

They haven't been close to .500 since the fluke year 2003.

Recent years they've been hovering around 72ish wins.

I'd say 100 losses is more likely than a .500 season by around 5-2 odds.

Is there a random variable that indicates that we are after all dealing with the Royals?

That whole is lesser than the sum of it's parts.
