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.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

I'd be happy with .500. Honestly, nothing that happens this year will really surprise me. They're young, so there's a chance they'll struggle (but **** that, we've struggled enough lately). They're talented, so competing for the division wouldn't surprise me. And anything in between wouldn't surprise me.

I just want some damn Royals baseball.

Apparently Roman Colon couldn't find a job. We re-signed him to a minor league deal with an invitation to spring training, but he's not making our bullpen unless some crazy disaster happens.

Oh well, we can look forward to seeing him rack up a 4.5-5 ERA in Omaha.

First place. No excuses.

In all seriousness, it's absolutely inexcusable for this team NOT to be competitive this season. Anything less than contention, even bullshit mathematical contention, come September should be viewed as a total failure.

It's time for this organization to take the diaper off.

I think .500 is the goal. This franchise has had to climb a mountain just to get to that point. But I didn't think some of these guys would perform as well as they did. Still, some guys will regress this year... possibly even guys who will be good like Hosmer. Beltran hit .247 with 7 HRs his second year. What you're looking for is a 3-4 year window here in a couple years once these guys really reach their potential. That's what I'm excited about... getting Hosmer and Moose and Gordon all going full blast... then you bring in guys like Myers and Starling to take it to the next level.

But... if you can get a couple of these pitchers to truly wake up, like Hochevar or Paulino... then it's game on.

I understand that .500 would be tremendous improvement overall. But damn I'm tired of treating the Royals with kid gloves.

Win some ****ing games already. We need to stop looking for more excuses. Oh, they're young! Oh, the Tigers spend money! Oh, the park is big! Oh, we had one less T-shirt Tuesday!

Win. Just ****ing win, douches.
