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.

I guess catchers are the lowest paid position on the field almost so I guess it could be worse for him.

Five years can be a long time

I just think he's going to be worth alot more than this contract in just 2 years. It's a steal for the Royals. At least I hope he turns out that good.
That's the point of these deals. He is getting more upfront money and gets financial security and if he works out, the Royals get good value later on.

If you read the article on the press conference that was posted, Sal wants to play for the Royals long term and the Royals want him around long term, so they got something done.

And most financial planners would tell you an extra $1/2 million now is better than an additional $1 million 3-4 years down the road...

BTW, ABSOLUTELY EVERYONE should listen to the Danny Duffy segment from Nick Wright's show today. Unbelievable confidence.

I don't know if this has already been discussed, but why are the Royals obsessed with one-year contracts? This seems very unusual in professional sports.

This is pretty common for young players who are under team control. It happens every year. You just don't hear much about it.

The players are already under team control. These contracts amount to little more than good will gestures.

Its common in baseball for players before free agency, especially if they are not arbitration-eligible. The only reason why a player would sign a multi-year contract that only covers arbitration years would be for injury security. If they are open to it, a team who is talking multi-year often would be interested only if they are buying out or getting options on free agent years.

If the player is willing to risk injury and wants to maximize his value in arbitration, or if the player is not interested in selling off his free agent years before free agency, or if he's not good enough for the team to want to give him a long-term deal, then they usually do a bunch of one-year contracts.

Thanks for the info on the contracts, guys. I'm not too familiar with all the arbitration and contract stuff, obviously.
