2013 Kansas City Royals Repository Thread

Proposed 2013 Slogan: Tigers: They're what's for dinner
Actual 2013 Slogan: Come to Play
A better, more accurate, or alternative slogan: All in, no panic, we promise.

Dayton Moore has pushed all his chips in and is riding on King/Jack suited, hoping it comes together, he gets some good luck, and he hits the nuts by the river card. There's potential, oh yes, there's potential. There's also risk.

At the midway point, Dayton is left counting on the river card. The flop and turn didn't help him, and he's looking at the Tigers holding a pair of Queens and the Indians holding a pair of 9s. His 2013 plan hasn't failed - yet - but the odds are not in his favor.

Burning questions updates below.

Burning Questions for 2013:

1) Will the improve rotation be improved enough? Does James Shields pitch like a fringe No. 1 away from Tampa Bay? Does Ervin Santana pitch to his highest upside in his walk year? Can Jeremy Guthrie build on his strong performance as a Royal in 2012? Can Wade Davis bring his new mentality- and velocity - back to the rotation?

Midseason check-in: Yes, the rotation is certainly improved enough. Shields has pitched like a fringe No. 1 and Santana is having his best season. Guthrie has horrible peripherals but has continued to perform well at his home park and eat innings on the road. Davis brought neither his kick-ass mentality or improved velocity back to the rotation and is in Luke Hochevar/Hiram Davies territory.

2) When will Luke Hochevar be shown the door?
Midseason check-in: It appears, never, at this point. Hochevar has been solid in non-leverage situations, though pretty much every time he has been used with men on base in an inning, it has been a disaster.

3) Does Hosmer bounce back?
Midseason check-in: It took some time, but Hosmer's performance from June 1 on is probably the most encouraging thing about the 2013 season so far.
4) Can Moustakas hit for a whole season like he did in the first half of 2012?
Midseason check-in: Nope. Moustakas was god-awful, then great for about 3 weeks, then god-awful again. He has been better since he started working with Brett and Grafol but still has a long way to go.
5) Who regresses?
Midseason check-in: Welp, Alicides Escobar is not a surprising name here (though Yost's stubborn insistence on hitting him second is ridiculous). Billy Butler is a surprise. He isn't having a terrible year - still contributing a lot to the offense - but he's not hitting for the average or power he has displayed over the past several years.
6) Who plays 2B?
Midseason check-in: A whole bunch of people, and not that great. Gio is at least getting a shot, though he once again is not doing much with it.
7) Can Jeff Francoeur be at least replacement level, rather than epic horrible level?
Midseason check-in: Hahahahahahahahahahaha
8) Will Dayton Moore survive to see 2014?
Midseason check-in: Outlook uncertain. Probably still around, unless the team completely tanks in the second half and he does something foolish. My guess - he sacrifices Ned Yost this offseason and gets one more shot with a new manager in 2014.
9) Will Danny Duffy come back healthy? And if he does, is he the same, better or worse?
Midseason check-in: Yes. Velocity looks the same, and it looks likely he is the same guy as before.
10) And the big one: Has KC added enough to run down the big-money Detroit Tigers?
Midseason check-in: Doesn't look like it, does it?

I vote no as well and I think the majority are in agreement. He posts baseball news we don't care about and then trolls us telling us how shitty the Royals are, when in fact most of us know that.

It really would allow those of us who watch this team to have civilized conversations with people who have factual baseball knowledge.

I really appreciate you guys looking at this and banning him from Royals threads.

I think banning him from any thread created with a Royals prefix would be good but don't know if that type of limiting can be done?

Can't be done automatically without a motivated code-monkey or resources to hire one. I don't think dumping from this one was too much to ask but you might have difficulty getting a mod to ban him from every game thread.

He is a piece of shit who does nothing but bash te Royals. He is a loser who should've been banned from Royals threads long ago. Do any of you go to an Orioles forum to flame?

Maybe Yost should stop using him like he's a goddamned lefty specialist when he has better splits against righties. Not that that is an excuse for walking two dudes in a row.

He has been pretty good against lefties this year, but I think that's a fluke more than anything else.

Collins' command has been spotty of late, and it's killing them. Same with Crow. Those two need to turn it around, and quickly.

When we lost last night I felt the season might be wrapping up soon. They have to go 3-3 these next two weeks in the Cleveland games. If they lose ground they aren't coming back. We're just not a very good team, it's time we deal with reality. We are 6.5 back of Cleveland but only 5 ahead of Chicago in last. So we're closer to last than to first.

We're going nowhere and it's time to listen to Santana offers.
