2012 Kansas City Royals Repository Thread

2012 Slogan: Our Time

A better, more accurate 2012 Slogan: It is Finally Next Year
(from Great Expectations)

An alternative slogan if you don't like that one: Someone has to win this crappy division
(from alnorth)

With the beginning of a new year, it is time for the 2012 version of the Royals Repository Thread. We've got Hosmer, we've got a 2011-dominating Gordon, we've got Moose, we've got hopefully a killer bullpen, we've got a stereotypical slow slugging DH, we've got easily one of the best defensive shortstops in the AL, we've got a promising catcher in Salvador Perez. Hell, we've got offense and promising prospects galore.

We do not have starting pitching.

Oh yeah, we've also got this:



Get ready for, (as of January 2012 anyway), one of the most confusing puzzles of a baseball season in recent Royals history. Will they suck? Maybe, I don't know. Will we be given a year of 0.500 baseball? Possibly, I don't know. Will they win the division and go to the playoffs for the first time in 27 years? For the first time in a long time, it could happen, I don't know. 92 losses, 92 wins, or anything in between would not surprise a lot of us.

Everything goes here except Gameday threads and really big news. If a giant story breaks, the Royals achieve some awesome milestone, or we sign/lose a highly significant player/coach/mascot/whatever, then it might also deserve its own thread. This being Chiefs Planet, please do not clutter the board with new threads about trivial Royals news or you will only annoy those who come here for just Chiefs football. If you aren't sure and its not a Gameday thread, it goes here.

What sort of stuff often goes here? SPchief explained it well, so I'll just copy that:

Quote:
If you locate something of interest.. ANYTHING.. deals on apparel, best ways in/out of the stadium, giveaways, great stories from this season or from seasons gone by, rumors, trades, anything.... feel free to post it here.

Anyone got a record prediction based on the current roster? I'm thinking .500 is the bare minimum or where they should be, and without any major injuries I could see an 85 win season.

.500 is the bare minimum of where I hope they are, but I could easily see the injury bug and the regression gremlin causing us to lose 90.

I have no idea where PECOTA will place us when they run the numbers, but if I had to take a stab at an average expected value for number of wins, I'll say... between our weak division vs. our starting pitching, maybe 79? I'll also say that our expected variance should be much higher than most teams, thus the 92 wins/92 losses remark.

Almost scared to make a prediction for fear of ruining the mojo. Maybe .500?

Slogan-"This is the year I won't feel like shit to wear a Royals shirt in public."

I see them +-5 games of .500 this year....roughly 80 wins.

Since I don't live in KC I might have to get the MLB package to watch games this year. Anyone here do that?

I've always wanted to but haven't. Could never justify the expense but it's tempting. GameCast and highlights aren't going to be enough if we're actually any good.

wish I could. I live in baseball's bermuda triangle, where games that are beamed in disappear, never to be seen. (I'm in Iowa, the most blacked-out state in the country, and yes I'm pissed about it.)

I think the internet deal is like $100 bucks and since I have a PS3 I can watch that on my nice TV. Plus you get like every game, every day.
