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.

OK. Will start the new thread momentarily. I have a great first post, too. Something that helped me with getting over the risks in this trade...

Also... feel like alnorth deserves a shoutout for this thread and all his great Royals threads this year. This is the best place on the interwebs to discuss the Royals, in my opinion, and he is a big part of that!

It's the only place I go to for Royals news.

I would share the 2013 marketing campaign for the new thread's OP...as we have in this one...but it's still confidential.

Hopefully you have better luck. We were hoping for .500 in 2012 and we lost 90 games.

No need to spill the beans. It can be fun (or hilarious, or horrifying) to abruptly learn the Royals slogan on their web site.

the Royals need to do what Nolan Ryan did and lower beer prices to either $4.50 or $5 and lower concession prices as well...

$5 beers would get me to a game a lot more...I went to a shit ton of Rangers games for $6 beers

yes, I understand this encourages binge drinking but **** you

If we're going to have two outfielders hit .230-.240 next year, I'd prefer the one that can steal bases and stress out the pitcher when he's on base. Dyson needs to draw more walks, though.

Haha...it should go over well with fans this year. Even if I wanted to, I've signed a confidentiality agreement.

I went to a Rangers game with 4 of my buddies and they sell a $26 hot dog...it's hilarious. Massive. We enjoyed it.

and our $6 beers

what's a beer in KC? I feel like I went and they were like $8 or $9...I know that's how much they run in St. Louis.

KC would draw far more fans if they lowered the beer price...I guarantee it. Well I guess the one thing I'm not thinking about is the fact there are no freaking bars around Kaufman, either.
