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.

Escobar's a stud, but he's not on the same level as Perez. Then again, VERY few players are.

Escobar is good enough

in fact, we are good enough just about everywhere but starting pitching.

I would like to upgrade frenchy and Gio but frenchy really does seem to be a clubhouse type guy and Gio has improved.

2 stud starting pitchers and some confidence and we are a playoff type team.

Will Glass spend the money for a quality starter?

Frenchy's replacement is in AAA. An adequate glove in 2B is cheap, and we've got enough in-house to figure out center field.

Almost 100% of our FA money this off-season needs to be spent on starting pitchers, and we ought to easily be able to afford at least an $80MM payroll next season. I presume (not sure) that raises will eat up a few million, so we ought to have at least a spare 15MM to play with. If we can spend some of that money on extensions for Moose or Hosmer great, but if that doesn't happen, 15 million on 2 players should be able to buy a lot.

15 million buys 1 stud starting pitcher

Cain is fine in center
Gio/Getz are fine at 2nd

When does Myers come up and start taking time from Frenchy?

Do we bring up Myers and let him backup Cain and Frenchy for a year?

Escobar and Perez have the potential to redefine what is elite at their positions. Very good hitting by both is indeed a wonderful bonus

Frenchy has been, literally, the worst everyday player in baseball. Calling him shit is an insult to well-crafted feces everywhere, and a player who is a severe detriment to winning can never be an asset in the clubhouse; the other players know he's abysmal, too.

What pisses me off is I don't think he changed his swing one iota during this season long slump. Still up there swinging as hard as he can at almost every ****ing pitch, no matter where the location

A vast majority probably could. To suck to the level that Frenchy does damn near requires effort on his part.

1. Ludicrous approach.
2. Zero discipline, to the point that his mental approach at the plate is selfish.
3. Below-average range.

He can throw. That's it, but his range mitigates this positive.
