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.

According to Buster Olney, the Major League Baseball owners are going to ask Bud Selig to stay for at least two more years.

There will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth from a lot of people if he accepts it, but I'm fine with this.

He's pretty old and it seems like at least part of him wants to retire. Every time he's getting to the end of the contract he sorta kinda maybe promises that this is it, he's looking forward to retirement, etc. The last time 3 years ago he was rather emphatic, more than usual in saying he was done but the owners somehow convinced him to stay. Now, he's again saying he thinks he's done, but behind closed doors he cant seem to say no.

edit: Looks like the owners are going to offer him $25MM/year to try to get him to stay. In comparison, Goodell only makes $10MM/year.

On the Scout BB it says the Royals season opener will be televised on ESPN2 (but it will probably be televised by FSKC blacking out the ESPN2 telecast in KC). Also in looking at the schedule 6 Sat. afternoon games have already been selected by FOX for their package.

Remember 22 games will not be televised by FSKC, those 6 will be among the 22. Also, remember FSKC does not televise games on Sat. after CFB starts (9/1) and Sun. games after the NFL season starts (9/9), so that will be 8 games not televised by FSKC (one of the FOX telecasts will be in Sept.). All of this means of the remaining games all but 8 will be televised by FSKC.

Hopefully they ALL will be weekday DAY games.

(Sorry, night shift workers, and yes, it is all about me.)

The asking prices have come down significantly for veteran FA starters: Oswalt (said to be at $8m), Kuroda (10-11m), Edwin Jackson.

Supposedly the Yankees are going to deal Jesus Montero to the Mariners for Michael Pineda. I don't even know what to say about that.

Oh I think so. I can't believe Seattle gave him up. The guy is probably going to be a 200+ K guy.

At $8 million for one year, the Royals should sign Oswalt. It's a no-brainer, IMO.

And yeah, Pineda is a stud.

I know that's a popular opinion and I'm not saying its wrong..... but we've signed Sanchez coming off arm problems, Broxton coming off arm problems... do we want to add a 3rd question mark? What if we sign Oswalt and all 3 don't make it back right. Do we want to be on the hook for $ to 3 broke pitchers? I don't. We've made good strides this off season but too many question marks makes me nervous.

I'm not saying we shouldn't go after Oswalt, I'm saying look at the length our necks are stuck out already.

What's the risk? Yeah, $8 million but you aren't on the hook for future years and you aren't compromising the farm system at all. We're in a different position than in years past, where we had no chance to compete. Now it seems like a reasonable risk, IMO.

Obviously he's not the Oswalt of old, but I think he can be an impact arm in the rotation.

The risk is $8 million for a low budget team with 2 other guys already on staff hoping to come back from arm problems. If all 3 fail because they aren't healthy I can see Glass saying we spent to much on broke dicks... gotta cut back again. That's what I don't want.

I understand we have to take some chances and hope for the best. If we sign Oswalt I'll cheer for him and hope he can be what we need. It just concerns me. That's all I'm saying. Back problems aren't easy to deal with. We can't afford to be 3 time losers on the pitching staff in a single year.
