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.

Yeah, that's valid. Maybe I just felt like supporting him because I really wanted to go cheer for another team as well at that time? Heh.

Would you take him back if he wanted to come back?

We aren't in a position where we could turn him down.

If you could go into 2013 with a rotation of:
Greinke (5y/100m)
Guthrie (1yr/8m)
Mendoza
Smith
Odorizzi

Then
A) the team can contend
B) the team can deal Guthrie at the ASB when Duffy/Paulino is ready to go.

Zack Grienke can kiss my ass. I'm sorry a major league team drafted you and all your issues and supported you through all of your crap. I got tired of losing too but I'm still here. The difference is it wasn't my job to help change that. You gave up and quit. I didn't. **** off.

Doing the Chiefs thing tomorrow. If any of you gluttons want my tickets for tomorrows Royals game, shoot me a pm.

2 tickets + parking pass, lower level. They are yours if you can pick them up, Brookside/Plaza area.

Carry on, Yost sucks.

We're not winning with that rotation. We need to get at least one more big pitcher to add with Greinke, along with keeping Guthrie.

I would love to see the Royals add Marcum as well, I'm just trying to keep it realistic here. But I do believe we can win with that rotation, especially if we replace Yost with a manager that can actually manage a bullpen. Just upgrading Hoch to Greinke is worth several wins.

We're almost certainly not going to be in the Greinke race, but I'm cool with acquiring two pitchers who are a tier (or two) below, such as Marcum and Jackson.

We have to get Hoch and Chen out of the rotation, and Guthrie needs to be signed. The final two spots can be filled from within.

Do all of this, and if Hosmer bounces back, the Royals might be able to make a run at things.

Of the Royals final 18 games, 7 are not broadcast.

I realize that everyone is used to not giving a **** about the Royals in September, but this broadcast schedule would be outrageous if the team didn't continue to suck shit.

Is that why there's a blackout in my mlb.tv subscription? I was wondering what that was all about, but I'm very certain I'm not in the viewing area.
