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'd consider it but I can't make the draft. Good luck.

I was at the game today, very encouraging to see a great outing from Mendoza, we need him, Sanchez, Hoch, and someone else (maybe Paulino) to step up. I'm not counting on Chen.

Didn't really care for Scottsdale's stadium. Its certainly better than the White Sox's spring home, but Scottsdale is one of those city parks with a touch of the bricked-in feel, and the horrible lack of parking where surrounding businesses happily gouge you to park. I know some people want a downtown stadium, but I always preferred the open-air feel of a ballpark where I can see for miles.

As for the fans, my sample size is only 2, but I've concluded that SF Giants fans are cool.

Do yourself a favor and go to a day game in SF before you die.

George Foster's sideburns equipped with bluetooth technology

Watcha got in that glove there, Mikey? Baseball? Tennis Ball? Human fetus?

Two years after this photo was taken, Warren Brusstar ceased to exist and instead became a man-shaped grove of chest hair.

Mario Mendoza's strengths: fielding, glasses-wearing.
Mario Mendoza's weaknesses: hitting, skin pigment.

Zane Smith looks just about how you'd imagine a guy named "Zane" would look. By that I mean he looks like a mutant rodent sent above ground by his sewer brethren to purchase Blue Collar Comedy tour DVDs.

Either Rich Folkers just threw a bad pitch or he soiled himself—maybe both.

And my favorite:

Enjoyable game today, and I had some pretty insane front-row seats.

Bad Chen stayed out of the park today, good Chen was rocking around the edge of the strike zone all day long for a solid outing. (vs the outing I saw from him last week where he got bombed for 10 runs)
