.500 should be viewed as a what it is, mediocre.
I think you are 1 year early. Given that the Royals organization was a smoking ruin needing a long rebuild when DM took over, he needed a long grace period. Significant progress after several years earned him an extension on that grace period vs having to get someone else who knew how to draft and develop players if it wasn't working.

They are almost up, and by next season we ought to have had enough of our minor league pitching come up and get experience to the point where the training wheels come off.

In 2013, especially in this division, .500 should be viewed the same as an 8-8 year in football. We can re-evaluate after 2018 depending on who stayed, who left, and if we need a new rebuilding period, but from 2013-18 we should be expecting wins and be upset at 90 losses.
