When was the last time people outside of the city actually thought the boys in blue could compete? With Bobby Witt Jr. here to stay on top of several exciting additions to both the pitching staff and lineup, people are taking notice.

Here's a look at the latest win total odds:

In what figures to be the worst division in baseball once again, the Royals have the good fortune of a relatively easy schedule. If the acquisitions prove fruitful while Cole Ragans maintains his dominant effort from last year, the pitching staff could be the best in the AL Central.

The lineup figures to improve as well, given the return of slugger Vinnie Pasquantino and the development of guys like Maikel Garcia.

You're not dreaming, Royals fans. Spring Training is about to start and there's legitimate optimism around our squad.
