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 have us at 40-44, 4 games back.
Not that I've been keeping close tabs, is it not conceivable to see a 2-2 split with Minnesota, 0-3 to Detroit, 2-1 to the Cards, 1-2 to the Rays and a 3-1 with the Jays? 8-9 record to go 39-45?

I’ve got us at:
2-2 vs Twins
2-1 vs Tigers
1-2 vs Cardinals (we always seem to win the first series and lose the 2nd)
2-1 vs Rays
2-2 vs Blue Jays

9-8, the .500 record we’ve pretty much played to all season. I don’t think it will get much better until we have consistent starting pitching.

I have a feeling the Rays may well sweep us. Wouldn't be suprised if they shit their shorts against the Cards, too.

3-1 vs. Twins
1-2 vs. Tigers
1-2 vs. Cards
1-2 vs. Rays
2-2 vs. Blue Jays

8-9 in the last games before the break. Hopefully this is a worst-case scenario. I think we've been super lucky the last couple of weeks.

Tigers and Twins are road series so that should be at least 3-1, 1-2 but I think 5 wins is more likely. Cards have no bullpen we will win 2. Rays and Blue Jays I see 2 wins for sure but hopefully 3.

So I say 8-9 on the bad side and 10-7 on the good side. A sweep of the Tigers would be awesome.

The Mariners in recent weeks touched base with the Cubs on shortstop Starlin Castro, asked the Royals about designated hitter Billy Butler, talked to other clubs about other hitters.
None of the talks progressed, according to major league sources. Virtually every team contacted the Cubs about Castro after a published report said he was available (he wasn't). Butler, too, remains relatively untouchable (he's under club-friendly salaries through 2015, and the Royals consider him a core piece.)

That's fine with me. If we lose Billy we will have no offense at all (as opposed to having the very little we have now).

No news here. So they asked and we slammed the door in their face, pulled out our shotgun, and told them to get off our lawn

Duh. You don't trade a hitter like Butler away in the AL when you can just play him at DH. Especially with such a club-friendly contract.
