The World Series Champs are off to a good start but they are going to have to pick things up if they are going to keep pace with surging Chicago. This series against Seattle should be well pitched and Seattle seems to have stabilized itself as at least a .500 team with some upside.
They have not been good at home though, a weird trend that is materializing throughout the league.
Kansas City Royals
A lot are predicting a fade from KC this season but they have looked pretty good so far – if you ignore their recent visit to the Angels.
Last year this team did not overwhelm offensively and it appears they are on that track again.
They probably should not have a winning record given their offensive production but in the early going it is encouraging that Eric Hosmer and Mike Moustakas are playing well. This group is still good at maximizing its opportunities.
Through the first few turns through the rotation Yordano Ventura is the ERA leader among starters.
He has been very difficult to hit but his walks are concerning. You want to say that he is getting a little bit lucky but the Royals are built to play defense behind him and he has good stuff.
The Royals bullpen is once again among the best in the Majors. Neither Wade Davis nor Kelvim Herrera has yielded a run this season and as long as that stands they are not going to be losing too many games late. Even Dillon Gee has caught the fever.
The Mariners have been playing good ball lately, winning 7 of 10 get over .500 heading into Friday night. Robinson Cano continues to swing a big bat with eight homers in April and shortstop Ketel Marte has given confidence to the team by leading the team in hitting so far.
3B Kyle Seager has been terrible at the dish in April. He has been a reliable power producer the last few seasons but is hitting just .146 heading into the weekend. This offense is not loaded and they need him to click.
I am not a Wade Miley fan and it is because he is what we have seen so far this season, too easy to hit. He has been getting hit hard at home and on the road and is looking at a fifth straight season with an escalating ERA. I usually stay away when he is on the mound.
The Seattle bullpen has been superb so far. They lead the Majors in batting average against and Steve Cishek has been great as the new closer.
This group plus a strong starting staff should keep them in contention all year long.

Free Kansas City Royals vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
The Royals are going to win their fair share of games this season so the key is picking the right spots to maximize the value with a team that may be more public now than it has ever been. I think this is one of those spots. Fading Miley is a near must for me an on the road off recent struggles I think you will be able to get the Royals at something near -120 or -125

As long as this stays in the range predicted hit the line hard. The Royals are not going to go into too much of a funk and this weekend will be all about looking more like the defending champs that they are.
