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.

Why the negative outlook? We just swept a subpar team with great pitching and clutch hitting in all 3 games.

Whoa. I'm not being negative.

I just wasn't impressed with the Brewers line up the past three games.

I'm sure you weren't either.

Average teams should beat subpar teams. Which we did. And we disprooved the myth that this team can't come thru in the clutch. Albiet against a bad team, but that shit matters.

Three games is a small sample size against a shitty bullpen.

I'M really not being negative. Just trying to temper my expectations and not get too excited.

Go out and compete against a pretty good Cards club then I will get a little excited.

The fact of the matter is this. This team should be producing far more offensively than they are. We will go nowhere until they do because we do not have the pitching staff to continuously play close low scoring games.

We have the bullpen to play close, low-scoring games....

Cain and Perez can't get back soon enough, and WM is clowning the minors.
