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've been a Royals fan since 1975, but it finally may be time to shelve my fanhood, at least until there's an ownership change.

I can't tell you how angry and frustrated that story makes me. It is utterly hopeless. I feel like I'm in an abusive relationship. David Glass doesn't deserve my money or my loyalty.

He's an utter disgrace, and the baseball equivalent of a war criminal.

When Duncan resorts to profanity, you know you've reached critical mass.

I feel for you guys. I've joked this season about how watching Mizzou **** footballs on offense every Saturday is like watching the Chiefs play twice each weekend. Ultimately, though, at least I don't have to deal with 2 owners in the same city that clearly aren't committed to winning.

Thank you, Bill DeWitt and the Cardinals. At least when we do something stupid it's along the lines of giving Randy Choate too much money for too long and not trading away our best prospect to save money.

That's amazingly short-sighted.

Just realized this: #Royals are only AL team to not have winning record at least once in last 6 seasons.

Nah, I don't think so. Even if people are pissed about the trade, Shields is a really good pitcher. People in KC, regardless the value we've discussed, would love adding a top of the rotation SP.
