Neither of these teams is expected to do much but Oakland is off to a solid start, 4-4 heading into Wednesday action. The offense has literally Khris Davis with four dingers and 6RBIs through eight games.
Yonder Alonso is doing his usual tease job by getting enough hits to make you wonder if you can count on him.
Jesse Hahn was terrible last year but in limited innings. This season they are hoping for more of what they say in 2014-15 when he looked like a real prospect.
He is not young any more but not old either so it is now or never. His first start of the season was solid on the road at Texas.
Kansas City Royals
The decline of the Royals is well documented but getting swept at Minnesota was a pretty rude awakening to the season. They have the league’s worst offense and that is with Salvador Perez hitting four homers.
I love his all around game but he is not supposed to be leading that lineup. Others need to step up.
Injuries took Vargas away from the Royals the last couple of seasons.
He is essentially a six inning pitcher but they are OK with that if they can continue to get good outings like he had in his first start of the season.
So far the new bullpen has performed but it is not as intimidating as it has been.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
The jury is still out on how bad this KC team really is. They are not hitting and until they do I think you can fade them. This is a spot to do so with them likely to be the favourite.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Oakland ML
The question for this year is how long will it take to the market to fairly value a bad Royals time. I think it will take a quarter of the season or no assuming the prevailing thoughts are correct.
