Max Rieper, Shaun Newkirk, and David Lesky project fun will be had by all as they look at ZIPS and PECOTA projections for the Royals this year. Plus we talk to Dan Szymborski, the creator of ZIPS on the direction of the Royals. Among the topics we discuss:

Can the Royals be successful without tearing it all down?

What does ZIPS see long-term for players like Adalberto Mondesi and Brad Keller?

Why is MLB’s playoff expansion proposal so bad?

What will we remember about Kendrys Morales in a Royals uniform?

How does the Chiefs championship compare to the Royals championship?

Links to some of the things we discussed:

Baseball Prospectus PECOTA projections and standings.

Royals ZIPS projections.

The original Royals Review thread on the Kendrys Morales signing.

MLB’s playoff expansion proposal.
