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.

It is simply confounding how idiotic all of these rumblings make the organization out to be.

What's funny: It doesn't even MATTER if Myers is a bust. It does...not...matter. First, you replace Frenchy and his (-2.7) WAR. You win immediately. Second, Dayton can simply say "Every scouting expert was wrong on Wil. It happens" and the fans will certainly accept the logic. But if he makes a dumb trade, he will hear about Myers for 6-7 years. Endlessly. And worse: even if Shields/Lester was good the 2 years they were actually in KC, that leaves 4-5 years on the backend where Myers is being tracked like a hawk by our fanbase.


It's a trade that has absolutely no upside for DM, and complete downside. Short of Shields going 17-6 and us winning the division by 1 game.

Hey dumbass, I guess that makes Wieters, Jones, and many of your other players shit too before last year, huh? You make us look like we're ****ing homers, but if you read even 1/10th of this thread, we blast shitty players, and we praise good ones.

I'm glad your -50 IQ level doesn't read all of this thread, because it just means we can make you look like the complete retard that you are. GBT Orioles thread that was so kindly made for you by a fellow Royals fan, troll.

BTW, Weiters>Perez? Reading that nearly sent me to the hospital.

Unbiased view here...Wieters is the better player until Perez has a longer track record in the majors (and actually shows that his offensive production is sustainable with a walk rate that low). I'd take Wieters over every catcher in the majors that isn't named Posey or Y. Molina.

That's fair enough.

The only knock on Perez at this point is the sample size. He's got a little less than a full season of experience and didn't display a long track record of this level of hitting in the minors.

I understand some skepticism on him. I still have some myself (though it is less than it was before this past season). I think the power is real. Only question is whether he can continue to hit .280-.300 long term.

Perez is just about the only Royal on this team that I have full confidence in. He has yet to show me that he is capable of sucking like the others have.
