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.

I would be so pissed if we signed Grienke, dude is a head case. Would not mix that up here again, regardless. Appreciative for what he did when he was here. Just wouldn't take the chance of it occuring twice.

Greinke is not even a faint possibility. The Dodgers are about to make it rain for him, there's no point in thinking about it.

Im all for trading prospects, but the decision is much harder when you go into it admitting that you wont ("cant") even entertain the idea of re-signing whomever you get.

Some dude on the radio said that even after all the transactions to date the Royals have made, the payroll is less then it was last year. I don't know enough about their payroll to know if this is true or not. But if it is, both DM and Glass were blowing smoke up our asses when they talked about the money they were going to spend when they were on TV for one of the last Royals games

Royals dangling Myers for Shields or Lester

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals have had discussions about trading top prospect Wil Myers for either James Shields or Jon Lester.
The Royals have already added Ervin Santana via trade this offseason from the Angels and recently signed Jeremy Guthrie to a three-year contract, but they want a true front-line starter and are apparently willing to deal one of the most promising young hitters in the game in order to acquire one. Myers, 21, batted .314/.387/.600 with 37 home runs and 109 RBI in 134 games this past season between the Double-A and Triple-A levels.

Is that what you guys get from the article? cuz **** no

Only on the Royals could a player like Frenchy cement his starting status by having a horrible year

The link that I posted, if the information it contains comes to fruition, confirms that Glass is a lying, miserable sack of shit and that DM is dumb as ****.

Essentially, it will be pointless to invest emotionally in the Royals because they will always be doomed by terrible management stemming from the top. Our only hope would be for Glass to sell the team, which I cannot imagine he would do.

That is incorrect, the payroll, as it stands now, given raises and what will likely happen in arbitration, is higher.

But not much higher. Also, the new national TV deal kicks in at 2014, I'm not sure how much our share is of that roughly 100% increase, but surely we can float 2013.

I'm personally hoping Dutton is a dumbass with flakey sources.

I have a little more faith in Moore than that. Glass is the one we should all be butchering. Seriously a 70 million payroll after a huge increase in shared revenue and "saving" over the last three years? When you have a young team that could make a legitimate push over the next five years? You're going to squander a golden opportunity like this? **** you Glass.
