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.

Kansas City Royals ‏ @Royals

#Royals starter Danny Duffy pushed back from his scheduled start tomorrow due to minor left elbow tightness. Expected to pitch in Detroit.

So it begins...

It's who we are. We are nothing, if not a Franchise of complete misfortune.

BTW, Franchise in this sentence = Royals or Chiefs..........

He already has the second-highest average fastball speed in the majors (beind Strasbourg). Even with the 1 mph juicing at the K, that's still damn impressive.

I'm going to hope against hope that he is really fine (and ignore the flashing mental images of Duffy "shaking out" his left arm after basically every pitch this year)

In other disturbing news today, doctors had to amputate Danny Duffies arm today. Doctors had no choice after a freak accident this morning. Doctors were attempting a Routine Tommy John surgery when former baseball and Royal great Ken Harvey burst through the Operating room and knocked over the bed Duffy was laying in. Sources outside the hospital said Harvey was chasing a Chicken Mcnugget that a person threw at him, it bounced of his Mctits and he chased it through the air through the O.R. Duffy's arm was the severed in half as an Oddly placed chainsaw fell on Duffys arm cutting it in half. Like the asshole he is Harvey had no comment.
