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.

Not a rumor anymore, just to be clear....

Ken Rosenthal confirmed it a few minutes ago. Still not details on what we gave up. But it means we got Ervin for 1 year at $9 mil

I would feel better about Santana if we had already inked Guthrie.

Would have much preferred Haren, but maybe we're on his no-trade list, so not going to get upset just yet. Santana is a worthy reclamation project, as his peripherals were still decent. His stuff puts him at the top (or near) our rotation.

"You have $20 million. You can have a very good player, or you can have Jeff Francouer and Ervin Santana..."

The Angels weren't going to pick up Santana's option (nor should they have, he sucks). The Royals shouldn't be giving up anything here as they have already saved the Angels the cost of their $1 million buyout.

Have fun with this guy.

Ervin Santana -

I would have preferred Dan Haren (which I think most of you know), but I can get behind acquiring Santana.

He's going to give you 200 innings and 30 starts. And he's likely going to have an ERA somewhere between 3.50-4.00, if he's healthy (And his HR rate from last year comes back to his career rates, rather than staying at 2x that).

This is equivalent to signing one second-tier starter on the FA market (or re-signing Guthrie), IMO.

It's a good start. They need to acquire at LEAST one more guy at that level.

Actually have seen conflicting reports regarding Santana's option. It's 1 year for either $12 or 13 mil

If he takes over Hochever's spot in the rotation, I'm his new biggest fan
