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.

Sounded like the other night he was ready to go - just a matter of him coming off the DL. I imagine he was on the 15-day DL.

It is completely mind bottling to think we're only 4.5 games back with a 12 game loosing streak under our belt already this year.

The AL Central sucks so bad.

It doesn't suck that bad. There just isn't a great team yet.

By my calculations, we have 17 games left before the ASG. We are currently 31-36.

7 are intradivisional (4 @ Twins, 3 @ Tigers)
3 are interleague (vs. Cardinals)
7 are against AL East (3 vs. Rays, 4 @ Blue Jays)

What do you think is a reasonable expectation in terms of our record/GB at the break?

I have us at 40-44, 4 games back.

Alright so here is where we stand. We are 4.5 back of Cleveland and 4 back of Chicago. Both of those teams are starting to or are already trending downwards. Cleveland 5-5 in the last 10 and Chicago 3-7. Whereas we are 7-3 in the last 10. The team I feel we really need to catch and stay ahead of is Detroit whom we are 1.5 games back of. I just don't see either Cleveland or Chicago staying atop the division.

Also of note is we are do to get a big shot in the arm with Sal coming back for either this series with the Cards or the next with Tampa Bay, plus Paulino coming back into the rotation soon, and if we are really lucky a huge shot in the arm if we can see Myers come up. We can actually make a run at this division which is really exciting.
