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.

Seitzer had to go... turned 2 of the power hitters into what he was.. a slappy doubles type that didn't hit home runs.

Glass is worse. He is the owner. He won't fire himself.

The Royals are never going to win anything of consequence under Glass ownership. Thinking otherwise is nonsense. Now, this doesn't mean that fans should pay no attention to the team, but following the Royals should be a passive hobby, not an earnest passion.

The scapegoating of hitting and pitching coaches is beyond laughable, though. As if Seitzer or anyone else is the problem. If a manager in baseball is the least influential coach in professional sports, imagine how even less important ancillary coaches are.

Truly an embarrassment from the franchise. Seitz is genious one year, so "stupid" he had to be fired the next.

Our Time.

I think if we say it enough times, he might go away.

Am I the only one that heard Glass saying that he would do whatever it took to get starting pitching and support Moore no matter what he wanted. He also said we would improve starting pitching at all costs. One of two ways or both. Meaning trade or free agency. I got pretty pumped up hearing it. First time I have heard him specifically say we had a certain issue and that we were addressing it this offseason.

Yes, because he truly didn't say this.

Oh, yeah, he gave the typical bullshit lines, "DM is going to have to make the decisions."; "We need to acquire starting pitching..."

But such statements happened after a bunch of qualifiers about being "small market" and the "dearth of available pitching," which mean that he's not truly going to commit the money to acquire a front-line guy in FA.

This is probably the last offseason they have before even the most optimistic Royals fans arrive at this conclusion.

Last chance to fix it, Glass.

Sign/trade for two significant guys in addition to bringing back Guthrie, and people might believe there's some commitment there.

This certainly will be it for me if they bring back Puke and don't really address the starting pitching.
