he had an unlimited budget so long as he fielded a world series contender in 2019?"Last week I made an off-hand remark about how poorly the Royals are likely to play next year.Then some in the comments wondered if even those three would be sufficient to pull the Royals into contention. It’s a fair question and I decided to give it a bit more thought. If you go even further back in the Hok Talk archives I made up a stat guessing at the most optimistic outlook for next season I could imagine and guessed if absolutely everything ever went the Royals’ way they could win 86 games. So let’s start by adding the three proposed free agents to that outlook and see what that gives us.Steamer has some projections out already for next year so let’s use those. Harper and Machado combine to be projected for 10 fWAR. Kershaw ended up going back to the Dodgers but he’s projected to be worth about 3.7 fWAR. Adding those three players to the insanely optimistic projections from before takes the team from 86 wins to 96.5 wins once you subtract out the WARs of the guys who will lose playing time to the new signees. That’s a really good team. But if you’ve spent that much money on those three free agents ($We’re talking at least $80M yearly average for those three guys Chris Tillman Jersey , after all) you probably want to do better. And, again, that’s an insanely optimistic outlook.So what about a more standard projection? Taking the best predictions at each position, including the bench, Steamer thinks the Royals have almost 19 fWAR between their roster. Add that to the 48 wins a replacement roster gets and the Royals would be predicted to win 67 games. Let’s add 5 fWAR because I don’t think Brad Keller, Adalberto Mondesi http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authen ... rdy-jersey , Whit Merrifield, and Ryan O’Hearn will regress that much. So that team could win 72 games. Add our three free agents and the team can win 85 games. So they’d have to add some more wins in order to even field a playoff team. So where can we add it? Well, we can drop Steamer’s fourth-best SP from the rotation, Eric Skoglund, and add J.A. Happ’s 3.3 fWAR. A net gain of about 3 WAR to take the team to 88 wins. Add Craig Kimbrel and David Robertson to the bullpen and then you’ve got 90 wins. If you wanted to add some cushion to the playoff race you would probably replace Alex Gordon with A.J. Pollock for another pair of wins.So if the Royals wanted to be competitive next year all they’d have to do is sign three of the best free agent position players, two of the best starting pitchers http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authen ... rdy-jersey , and the two best relievers. But, of course, the Royals definitely are not rebuilding. The future looks bright for Denver sports. Well, most Denver sports anyway, and the Rockies are on the good side of the equation!"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Scaling the RocksPebble ReportRockpileRockies Game ThreadsRockies Fan ExperienceRockpileThe Rockies are part of an exciting time for Denver sportsNew,51commentsRockies news and links for October 16 Jonathan Schoop Jersey , 2018| BSN DenverIn the latest episode of the BSN Rockies podcast, Drew Creasman prepares for the upcoming class of free agents and what the Rockies might have in store for their own players, namely Nolan Arenado. As for the free agent market, Creasman expects it might get off to a slow start as it did last winter, unless a team is willing to go all-in on Bryce Harper and/or Manny Machado with no hesitations. For the Rockies, Creasman suggests it would “behoove” the Rockies to give their regular starting position players more days off in the coming season. With Arenado http://www.oriolesfanproshop.com/authen ... rdy-jersey , Creasman believes the Rox should give their All-Star third baseman the opportunity to accept their best possible offer this offseason, and if he rejects it, consider the possibility of trading him.鈽?鈽?鈽匒lso of interest: You can join Patrick Saunders and Kyle Newman of The Denver Post for a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) today, October 16th, at 12:30 PM MDT.
