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.

Shit. As a royals fan this means his arm is dead or he is injured.

Hope not though. Something great needs to happen to us for once.

Remember when Kansas City was so excited about Wil Myers that they sold out the 2012 Futures Game just to see a few at-bats from him? *sighs*

Yes, and he failed to produce. Kudos to DM for pawning him off on the Rays.

I still love Wil Myers. He helped us get a high-quality, durable, if not great, ace.

Shields said to be open to an extension. He knows GMDM is an idiot, and Shields is just a dumb ball player. Want to thank my Father again for raising me a Royals fan. Dad, you were right on every other thing, though.

35,000-38,000 came out to see Myers and Odirizzi for ten minutes in July. Thanks GMDM.

And lose out to who exactly?

Again, the Royals don't make this trade unless they think highly of Davis and his five years of control as a potential starter.

What say you, Royals fans? I posted this in the Cardinals thread and it honestly seems like a decent idea:

Quote:
This will get lost in the Royals thread, but isn't Skip a perfect trade candidate for KC?

They need a reasonably priced platoon OFer to play RF with Frenchy. Skips OBP against lefties is right around .360, which is damn good. He's a quality hitter with a nice eye that would be a boost for any lineup that doesn't have a true leadoff hitter (the Royals don't).

Better still, if by some chance Frenchy recaptures his 2011 form, Skip's definitely a better option at 2b for them than Chris Getz. Hell, he could probably start every day over getz if need b.

Skip's a great fit for that team. He's reasonably priced, gets on base and fills both of the holes the Royals have. They have 3 nice little SS prospects in the low minors (Calixte, Mondesi and Arteaga) and a young starter with a ton of team control already in place at SS.

Surely they'd be willing to give up one of those guys for a guy that would give them 500 quality ABs in a couple of positions they could really use some help.
With Myers gone, you'll need someone that you can fall back on in RF if Frenchy is a disaster. For everything Skip Schumaker is not, he is a consistent LH hitter that will give you nice ABs against RH hitters and play his ass off night in, night out. He's a good RFer and a below average 2b that will do in a pinch (though his arm and ability to range into the OF and medium range fly balls is often very useful).

He's inexpensive and fits your roster well. With the Royals now needing to deal with RF, he seems a great trade target for you.

I'd rather see 40,000 come out to see the Royals in the playoffs. I was born in '85, man. This is the most hope I've ever had for that becoming a reality.
