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.

I was really just throwing out crap, randomly dreaming about it. If it's really happening... wow!

Now this whole thing may fall apart, or may have already fallen apart for all I know. But I do know that conversations, including numbers, have been made between the group of buyers and the Glass family.

I'm hoping that Glass is just blowing smoke to cover up any deals being worked "underground"

Outside of a few sources that I have never really seen... I haven't even seen that there really is a trade going down.

Could this just be a normal roster move?

Do you know who is in this buyer group? Not asking for names, but I'd like to know if they have local ties.

Yup, if it is a local group I'm all for it! Too many of our darned owners don't live here.

Sanchez to the DL? Something tells me he isn't hurt and they are going to risk keeping one shit pitcher and that's Hoch. I wouldn't be surprised if Sanchez has a phantom injury.
