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.

Sanchez is a sunk cost, and, while Mendoza can have a viable role on the staff, he is not a starter. His gas can is always within view when he starts a game.

Statspass gives me this:

Projects to:

.829 OPS/8 HR/36 RBI/108 R/56 2Bs/104 BB.

I'd expect him to end up with more like 45 2Bs and 15-20 HR over the long haul, and see the RBI counting stat go up some. But damn...

I'll take an .829 OPS from my leadoff man any day of the week.

Sweet! That is much closer to what we saw all of last season from him. If only Yost would have left him in the leadoff spot. A .283 average from leadoff means he is batting, what, somewhere around .220 everywhere else in the lineup?

And more importantly .388 obp in the leadoff spot.

#Dodgers had checked in with #Royals during past week or so about bats. If Ethier is out, Francoeur is an option.

Please let this happen, please let this happen, please let this happen, please let this happen.

I don't even care what they get back.

Moose and Perez are the leaders of this team moving forward. Thanks for the help, Frenchy - we've got it from here.
