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.

Based on several things said in that interview, we're in real trouble.

Dayton is reaching Todd Haley levels. He's got to be acting out right?

It takes a lot of work, planning and patience to be the worst team in the AL. And especially to hold that distinction year after year.

As George Brett said "We no longer tolerate mediocrity within this organization."

When we suck it, we suck it harder than anybody else in the American League.
Take that to the bank (along with a bunch of the stadium maintenance funds).

I like how the Rangers called up Olt as they're playoffs bound.

Meanwhile, the Royals are the worst team in the AL and decide to leave their stud in the minors.

Brilliant.

"We're going to be loyal [to Frenchy]." No bullshit. Just one of the troubling moments from the interview.

I'm listening to the podcast based on your statement above. Unfortunately, I agree. Now he's saying 2014 is the year we'll be competitive. In addition, the comments on Frenchy are just maddening. Talks about him being streaky. Says Frenchy could have gotten more than 2 years but stayed with us. Buuuuulllshit. No team out there was giving him 2 years besides us, much less 2+. And he's not streaky. One good year doesn't make him streaky. That's an anomaly.

I was worried by comments about needing "a feel" before bringing up a player. WTF does that mean? It's this "feel" that leads to faulty evaluations.

Additionally, I laughed my ass off when he said that "you can't fool" people in baseball. Talk about irony coming from Dayton's mouth.
