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 shoulder at that thought of the Royals keeping Hochen over Paulino.

Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals recently made a two-year, $26 million offer to free agent right-hander Ryan Dempster, but dropped out when the bidding got too high.
The Royals are talking to multiple teams about a trade for a top starting pitcher, but they also continue to monitor possibilities in free agency. Dempster doesn't figure to come cheap after posting an excellent 3.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 153/52 K/BB ratio in 173 innings this past season between the Cubs and Rangers. FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported Thursday that the Brewers, Red Sox and Angels are in the mix.

I've got to say, by all accounts the Royals have really been making a push this offseason to improve their pitching. I'm looking forward to seeing what else they do in the coming months. If they really can nab a top-flight starter (and ditch Hoch/Chen), next year could be fun.

BOB DUTTON IS FULL OF LIES. THE ROYALS ARE BROKE. WE ARE NEVER GOING TO SIGN ANOTHER PLAYER EVER AGAIN. IN FACT, A YARD SALE WILL BE HELD IN THE K'S PARKING LOT THIS WEEKEND TO SELL OFF OUR REMAINING PLAYERS. WE SIMPLY CANNOT AFFORD A BASEBALL TEAM AND INSTEAD WILL FIELD A TEAM OF WACKY WAVING INFLATABLE ARM FLAILING TUBEMEN NEXT SEASON. THANK YOU. [/Dayton Moore]

It might be an improvement over Frenchy in right field, a wash at the plate, and 6.5MM cheaper.

Meh..it's still the Royals. You just know that Hosmer and Moose Tacos will bust, and these FA pitchers will blow their arms out in June.
