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.

No.

His average fastball velocity was down about 1 mph from a season ago. He dealt with back trouble early in the year, which affected his velocity a bit. He also is entering his early 30s, when most guys lose a tick or two (without steriods).

His fastball has fallen off about 3 MPH over the past 6 years, which is not unusual. And he has had tremendous success with decreased velo, because he's never been a guy who relied on blowing people away with velocity. Movement and control are his keys, and he still has plenty of both.

It's unlikely that Myers' HR production will not translate reasonably well at the next level. Even if he hits .250, we need a guy who can hit 30+ HRs.

Trading him would be a mistake at this point, given the equally appealing talent that we have that is farther from the league.

If we did trade him, I'd want a pitcher in the league right now, a hot pitching prospect in AAA, and another really good prospect position player in no lower than AA.

There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

If a player has 12 teams that are on his no trade list you can bet the Royals are one of the twelve.

You're talking about Haren?

He only has 8 teams on his no-trade clause at this point.

Would a high caliber player ever even think that a team like the Royals would be worth blocking?
