Gut Response - Are the Royals Better Than the A's?

We step outside the division for the first time in the Gut Responses series...

So are the Royals better than the A's? This looks like a close call.

'07 Pythag '08 Pythag
Royals 74-88 72-90
Athletics 79-83 76-85

Oakland losses: Huston Street, Carlos Gonzalez, Mike Sweeney, Frank Thomas, Matt Murton

Oakland additions: Matt Holliday, Greg Smith, Jason Giambi, Michael Wuertz, Russ Springer, Orlando Cabrera

So you tell me, are the Royals better than the A's?
