Win-Loss Ceiling and Floor for the 2012 Royals

We've all discussed how good the Royals will be next year. We've discussed at length the pitching, and it seems Dayton Moore is almost purposefully defying our expectations, especially with the Broxton signing. But none of us really know how good they will be.

However, I am curious to see all of your ideas on the best and worst case scenarios. What if everything goes right? What if Duffy takes a huge step forward and pitches with a 3.50 ERA while Butler and Hosmer form this year's version of the Braun/Fielder combo? Of course there is the other side as well--what if Soria continues to regress, Montgomery gets demoted to AA, and Moose reverts to 2010 slump form while Aaron Crow becomes the new Kyle Davies?

These are the records of the Royals for the last 3 years;

2009: 65-97, .401

2010: 67-95, .414

2011: 71-91, .438

The Royals have improved upon their previous year's record every year since 2009. Will they continue and pass the 21st century record of 83-79 if everything goes right? And if everything goes wrong, how close to 62-100 will they get?
