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 somewhat concur, and that is not white sox hatred speaking. Well mostly not, anyway, I think.

I hesitate to advance an opinion since my sample size is currently 2 ballparks (I'll see almost all before I leave), but there were many features I didn't care for. In the distance it looks like the steel girder skeleton of a building whose construction was abandoned years ago, now all rusted out, and the way the stadium faces there is very little shade anywhere.

I know this will be a stretch. But anyone have opening day tickets they don't intend on using?

Just need two.


Thanks.

Hosmer was in right field. He had been drinking with a girl named "Mimi" while he was out here. My friend JP goes. "We've been partying with Mimi!" Hosmer tipped the cap and laughed. He made a night play in right field as well. Good moment for sure.

Just got back from the game. It was pretty close for most of the night, Sanchez mostly looked decent, shakey at times but pulled through. The diamondbacks refused to allow a DH, so our pitchers had to hit and Butler didn't play, but we overpowered them with offense anyway.

Salt River Fields at Talking Stick (located on an indian reservation near their casino) is a very, very impressive spring training ballpark. It is the newest park, looks great, and since its Arizona's spring home its always crowded. (From researching my trip, I knew this would be the case here and probably also in San Francisco's home park, so I bought those tickets way in advance) Tonight was a sellout. As you can see in the picture, even the outfield grass was jam-packed with people sitting on blankets.

I guy recently moved to my neighborhood and it turns out he's an avid autograph collector. After finding out that I'm a huge baseball and Royals fan, he gave me this.

I was really hoping johnny g would play well enough this spring to lock up the job, but he hasn't. He's probably still getting over the hip surgery. And his defense is enough of a negative that he doesn't play if he's not a plus bat (.300/15 hr).

I could stomach a Getz/Yuni platoon. Not sure if that's what will happen, though.

Yep, I know its spring and small sample size and all that, but his bat needed to carry him. If he cant beat Yuni, he needs to go back and prove that he's outgrown Omaha.
