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.

The only thing I can think of us is keeping as a #4 or #5 until one of the Tommy John guys get back or one of the kids on the farm forces their way into the lineup. And that he would be an easy out as a DFA. That is the only thing I can think of other than they are scared to death he turns out to be a stud in some organization.

I think what it comes down to (Keeping Hochevar) is that Moore is again being too reliant on what "The scout's eye" tells him on Hochevar.

I understand looking at him from that perspective. I did until this season (of course, his close to the 2011 season fooled me and a lot of other people - there was strong evidence that suggested he had turned the corner). He has continually underperformed his peripherals.

But just like guys who outperform their peripherals, once you reach a certain point you just have to realize that's who he is.

Hochevar should be a stud. He has the frame, the arm and the raw ability to be an extremely good MLB pitcher. But it's not going to happen, especially not in KC.

My stance remains: Whatever Dayton does this offseason, it had better work. THere's really no reason the Royals can't compete within the AL Central, which is an incredibly weak division.

Yeah, but you and I both know it'll be another 90-loss season. They are what they are.

This makes the most sense. Obviously, I disagree, but I could see this as a scouts vs quants argument in which the scouts won.

The Orioles have definite interest in the Royals' Billy Butler and Eric Hosmer. Let's see if those two players are really available, and if there's a potential match.
