One big thing to worry about, in this day and age, is that really bad teams trade their closers mid-year.

Thus - everyone knew the Royals would suck last year.  Their over/under was 67.5 wins coming into the season.  But Kelvin Herrera was still close to a 30 save pace ... until he got shipped to Washington.

San Diego was tabbed for 73.5 wins.  They actually underperformed that.  But Brad Hand looked like he'd save about 35 games ... until he got shipped to Cleveland.
