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.

In other news, a community college beat the Orioles.

Baltimore Orioles lose to community college team

I can understand if you send your b squad off to play the Longhorns and lose on any given day, but this is silly.

It should be clarified that Baltimore supplied the pitchers for both teams, but its not like they gave them a ringer who pitched the whole game. This was the real Baltimore lineup vs a community college lineup, and the community college scored more runs.

I'd like to say "consider the sample size, its baseball after all", but that shit is embarrassing.

1) Can't wait for tomorrow. Most excited I've been for a season in my life.

2) I'm sure this has been discussed, but I don't feel like going back to find it. Is Getz/Yunicorn expected to be the 2B for the entire season or is Gio in AAA a temporary thing? Cause I can't ****ing stand Getzancourt.

Thanks for any info.

I was excited, but then I found out that Yuni is starting at 2nd and batting sixth in front of Moose. Nothing like throwing a wet blanket on my excitement. I thought we'd gotten smarter as an org, but I guess not.

They had a MetroSports special on the Royals the other day, and the way Brian McRea talked, Johnny G. was sent down mainly due to his fielding abilities. I didn't think he played that bad last year for a rook, but guess they want him to clean it up. Not sure what he was batting this Spring

So instead we're going to play Yuni, who needs to work on, well, his baseball abilities.

Wasn't there someone else in the minors that several people on here talked about last year that was supposed to be the future second baseman?

So we're gunna start Yuni because Gio (coming off his rookie season) needs to work on a few things?....

There is no way Betancourt is better than him defensively.
