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.

Do we bring up Myers and let him backup Cain and Frenchy for a year?
David Dejesus thinks Cain has a glass vagina.

Cain was a hot start away from being a complete and utter joke this season. In no way should he have a guaranteed job coming into ST next year.

And Frenchy can choke on it along with Hoch and Cassel.

Cain had a terrible April (5 games), a great July (18 games), an awful August (26 games) and a great September (12 games).

He was Jekyll and Hyde all season. That's frustrating, but if he can be the hitter he was once he returned from injury (.275/.325/.440 - even with the slump in August) while playing great defense in CF, he's a plus player.

As for his injury history... the guy had injury problems all season this year, but in the 8 years he has been a professional baseball player, he's been generally healthy. Too early to say this year indicates his ability to stay healthy or not.

Give him a full offsesaon to get his legs healthy, and I think we see a much more healthy guy next season (which probably translates into better defense and a little better play at the plate).

He just had the worst year of his career, by far... That being said, he would have been our best starting pitcher this year posting the same stats.

Santana is kind of a modern-day Saberhagen, in that he has typically had one good year, followed by one bad year.

Wouldn't be a bad idea to offer him a one-year deal. Gives him a chance to up his value and earn a long-term deal pitching in a pretty friendly park (at least for a guy whose biggest problem is the gopher ball).

As for Haren... I'm a little surprised to hear they will cut ties with him. You'd think they'd be able to trade him for SOMETHING - and then not have to pay the $3 million buyout.

Probably are looking at 4 years, $65-70 million or so. I'd do it, but that's a lot to spend on a 32-year old who DOES have back problems this year.

I'd probably rather go 4 years, $60 million on Anibal Sanchez, if I had to choose.

Either would be fine with me. Sanchez would seem to be less risky, in many ways. Peavy might well be in the conversation. Another guy who is 31-32, injury history, but tons of talent.

Regardless, this speaks to why the Royals really need to get two guys, in addition to Guthrie. One doesn't live up to expectations, hope the other two do.
