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 will say, though, that when they thought they fixed him last year, he actually pitched really well for the remainder of the season. I wouldn't mind a repeat of his second half numbers again...

Which is why we should fire him before he destroys the potential on this team. We should replace him with someone like Francona. I think he is probably the best manager available.

Did you guys see this?
Douchebag reliever Chris Perez of Cleveland celebrated his 20th save vs. St. Louis by puking all over the mound.

What a dillhole...

The Royals have signed their 1st 10 picks with about $111,500 left in their bonus pool.

Later picks after the 10th round can get up to $100k without any bonus impact, but that 111.5K is now available to goose one of those bonuses up to 200k if they need to. They can also spend another ~$300k or so on a bonus without losing a draft pick, but they'd have to pay a 75% tax on that money.

In some ways, no, but I believe the two suffer from opposite problems. Cassel has heart but very little talent (relatively speaking, of course), and Hochevar has talent but very little heart.

Thus, Hochevar's sports sins are far more grievous in my eyes.

In combination, these have my vote for post of the year. So much truth and humor.

From what I understand Francona was let go because of the exact same reasons we dislike Yost which is poor in game management. Why else would they let the guy go that finally got them a world series title then added one more.

This is true.

They are equally full of suck for different reasons.

Not sure, but you might be right. But could new management have anything to do with him being gone? Didn't he leave not to long after Epstein?
