We all ought to agree that over the course of 162 games these things tend to even out, and that the Indians and Royals are both below-average baseball teams.
Right now, we really have no idea. One team could easily end up 10-15 ahead of the other. Both have strengths, both have flaws. The Tribe has fewer black holes, but the Royals have better pitching. I could see either team contend or flop at season's end.
