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.

With the money tied in Perez it won't be likely Hosmer and Moose will be able to be signed long term. I would look very hard into flipping Hosmer and Moose for some prospects when we are ready to compete.

There's only two teams in all of sports that I'm a casual fan of (Orlando Magic and Tottenham Hotspur), and I can't progress beyond casual-fan status with them because I have no connection to Orlando or London.

Just become a fan of natural disasters.

You know, floods, earthquakes, tsunamis, tornadoes, locust plagues, that sort of thing.

It's not as crushing as being a Chiefs or Royals fan, but it's close.

We can now stand down from panic, the Royals confirmed what we were thinking. Meniscus tear, he needs surgery. However, if thats all it is, he'll have some rehab ahead of him, but we are probably looking at him missing a few weeks or a month, no biggie. If we really want to be ultra-paranoid and careful, maybe not until May. If he's out till closer to June or into July, then there was something else going on.

First round of cuts announced, we'll be down to 46 players tomorrow.

8 players have been sent to minor league camp: Odorizzi, Dwyer, Montgomery, Sisk, Smith, Julio Rodriguez, Myers, and Orlando.

In addition to that, Adcock and Verdugo have been optioned to AAA, and Arguelles has been optioned to AA. We carried Adcock last year as a rule V, I'm guessing we'll now let him see if he can be a starter in Omaha.

My initial though was that he knew he had a serious injury and signed the contract because of it.

The Royals have just locked up Alcides Escobar.

4 years, plus 2 team option years, both of those options would be for free agent years. That would take him through 2017.

edit: The 4 guaranteed years are worth $10.5MM. If both options are exercised, they would add another $11.25MM.

So, potentially 6/21.75MM, for an AAV of $3.625MM

edit2: If for some reason Escobar gets hurt or goes to hell and we don't want the options, we'd have to buy them out at $500K each. So, if he breaks his neck tomorrow, we'd be paying a minimum of $11.5MM over the next 4 years.
