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.

#Royals LHP Danny Duffy gives up four runs in three innings in a Triple-A game. That doesn't help his cause to make rotation.

WTF Duffy? Get your shit together. God I hope Montgomery and Odorizzi are ready soon.

Yes, small sample size, and spring, but these guys did not have a spot locked up, so I wouldn't think they were screwing around with new pitches, all 3 of them are trying to make 2 spots (since Crow is out)

Mendoza 16.2IP, 1ER, 3BB, 16K
Paulino 11.2IP, 10ER, 5BB, 9K
Duffy 8.1IP, 7ER, 3BB, 9K (not counting his bad AAA game today)

Who is out, Paulino or Duffy? I don't think Paulino has any options, and our bullpen is kinda stacked, so doesn't it have to be Duffy in Omaha until someone inevitably fails?

I'd agree it's Duffy. Man I hoped he'd be ready to rock. This staff is going to give us problems again... I'm willing to bet. Hope I'm wrong.

Thought Rany was suggesting Paulino(a?) to long relief.

Oh, just remembered a funny anecdote. I'm watching the game, top of the 6th inning, Royals up only 4-1, so its still a game at that point. Brewers pitcher strikes out Frenchy, who led off the inning. Then, shortly after the strikeout...

Me: ooh... oh no, thats not right. Thats not good.
Detroit fan next to me: Huh? What happened?
Me: After that strikeout, the Brewers tried to throw the ball around the horn, but they screwed it up. 3rd baseman dropped the ball from catcher and just tossed it into the dugout. Thats bad luck.
Detroit fan: *chuckling*
Me: no, I'm serious (not really, I was joking), the Baseball Gods are not going to be happy about that, I bet they get punished.
Detroit fan: well, all right, lets see what happens.

Moustakas comes up and BOOM, monster home run. Needless to say, I gloated about my witty observation.

Monty was on with Petro the other day saying his rotation would include Duffy with Paulino to the bullpen. Said Paulino does have the ability to throw a lot of pitches for you...in 5 innings.

You can't tell your team that there is 'competition' for any roster spots then turn around and not give Mendoza the starting rotation spot.

He flat took it. He came into camp in 3rd in a 2-horse race and he simply stole the spot by outpitching his competition. Will he probably fall on his face later? Yup, most likely, but you still have to give him that chance in order to at least give the impression that camp had any merit at all.

Come on...this is the Royals. Would not surprise me at all to see Mendoza waived. In fact, I almost expect it to happen.

Paulino is going to the DL with a sore elbow. That means Duffy has probably backed into the rotation as our #5 starter.

In the first week, we'll be going with Chen-Hoch-Sanchez, then probably Mendoza-Duffy. Hoch will probably start on KC's home opener.
