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.

No kidding. I'll be really happy with a .500+ record with improvement from all the young guys. I'd be ecstatic with a 2nd place finish this early into the thing...

I guess I am in the minority, but I am not phased by this move. Fielder is good, but something in my gut says he won't play up to the level of his contract or put up the numbers that he did in Milwaukee. He does improve the Tigers, but I don't feel like he will cost us a shot at the division.

So tell me gang.

Is this the year where I won't want to claw my eyes out and stop watching baseball by June.

In short, I'm a pretty casual fan. How excited should I be?

EXCITED. If not totally this year we are only a year or so from being a legit ws contender year in and year out.

We will probably contend for our division this year if august/september werent just an abberation. We played teams that needed to win and beat them quite often.

Just need pitcher to be the guy

Sal Perez is the undervalued piece at this point. If he's what we saw in '11, he'll be a complete game-changer and the key cog to a tremendous amount of success in KC.

Most important (and hardest to fill) position players might already be with the team in Escobar and Perez. Now, if Cain and/or Starling are/is tits, oh ****...

Did I mention that fat Billy is going to start hitting home runs this year? And that the first T-Shirt Tuesday giveaway is a wolf shirt?

I'll still maintain that Montgomery is the best pitcher coming through the system, despite his difficulties at AAA. Only lefthanded pitcher I'd really rather have is Matt Moore.

I think Myers is going to be a stud and might force his way into the lineup next season.

Really looking forward to the defensive improvement we should see. Gordon is only going to get better at the fundamentals of left field. Cain will be a big upgrade in center and cover much more ground. And Francouer is a weapon in RF with his arm, even if his range is a little shaky.

Not sure Perez is really a .300 hitter, but I'd be happy with .280 from him, which I think is sustainable.

Get some pop from Moose like we saw in September, and some improvement from Hosmer and Gordon (yes, from Gordon, who thinks he will be better in his second year with this approach, and so does Seitzer), and that offense will score some runs.

REALLY would like to add another solid pitcher, but we'll see if it happens...

I keep saying it. This offense should be in the top 5 in most major categories. If we get even average pitching, we'll be right there with the Tigers the whole way.

I totally agree... I haven't given up on Montgomery yet. I still have high hopes for him... I think he's going to be in the rotation when this team is good.
