Behold, the Royals Review: Most Beloved Royal Bracket! To avoid too much recency bias, I grouped players by era - we have: The Herzog Bracket (1969-1980) The Howser Bracket (1981-1994) The Muser Bracket (1995-2010) The Yost Bracket (2011-2019) Some players transcend eras, so I tried to put them where they played their prime years. I seeded players roughly by WAR, with some adjustments for players that had brief, but spectacular seasons, or players dragged down by one bad negative WAR year. I also adjusted for road record, strength of schedule, and Ken Pom rankings. If you don’t like the rankings, take it up with the committee! Here is what the bracket looks like!
