    Wow... Really surprised at that difference in starters ERA. Not much difference between the bullpens.

    For Atlanta to win, they need dominant pitching. KC needs to rough up their starters.

    Also Atlanta has Defensive Efficiency of 4th in NL.. Kansas City has Defensive Efficiency 8th

    A lot of KCs wins were against mediocre AL teams. The NL is much tougher.

    Prediction- Atlanta in 5

    Royals in 7! I think this will be a close series. The team who gets to 3 wins first, will win it all, IMO.
