Your bench is awful, plain and simple. Aoki was a nice pickup, but an average one. Hosmer has a LOT to prove, especially that he can be productive over a full season. Your 3 and 4 hitters are 20-25 homer guys who can sometimes rake, but are NOT prototypical power hitters and are FAR from a guarantee to deliver the power and production needed from a 3 and 4 hitter. Perez is a nice, young catcher, but is he really a number 5 hitter? Moose was AWFUL last year and could be in the minors again real fast if he starts off next year like he did 2013. Cain, Escobar and Bonifacio are near "replacement" level players in terms of analytics. I think your lineup is full of holes. Sure it's got potential, but it's got potential to be very good OR very bad. Your rotation is worse losing Santana and Chen and only adding Vargas so far. Your best pitcher would still be Detroit's 4th starter. Holland has had ONE, count 'em, ONE lights-out year and has to prove he can do it again and Detroit just signed Nathan, one of, if not the, most consistent closer in baseball over the last ten plus years. I think Kansas City has just as much of a chance to regress as they do to progress. And I think Detroit is significantly better, plain and simple.
