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.

Okay, whatever. Still has no business in a Royals thread.

I do like reading tidbits of interesting info on other teams, but minor league prospects from a likely 5th-place AL East team is a little below the "no one here cares" line, unless we are trying to dream up a trade with the Royals.

So Lidge just signed with the Nationals for $1 million.

That's a flyer contract, and a pretty damn nice one at that. Would you rather have Lidge at $1 million than Broxton at $4 million?

Seems like the Royals jumped the market a little bit.

These pricks better play 90+ win ball this summer, seeing as how the Chiefs look like they may be headed for a nosedive of an epic magnitude.

Maybe, but that's the world they live in. Until they start winning games, it will be difficult to draw free agents.

There's a very large age difference. Lidge should be just about done with baseball, so he's not worth the money Broxton could expect to get.

Its possible that we may have overpaid Broxton a little bit though, but DM prefers to fill needs early, taking the risk that maybe the market was softer than you'd expect than see all the free agents get signed and left with no good option.
