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.

Man, he's gotten off to a really mediocre start this season. 5 starts and only 1 win so far? Thats pretty awful. Maybe they'll dump him off on the Royals.

Now there's the winning type of pitcher the Royals need. ACE! He's on pace to go 18-6!

Watching a Royals game with my father for the first time in over 5+ years. Means Duffy will give up 6+ runs or so?

If he keeps backsliding and pitching like a wuss (refusing to go inside), like he did in his last start... then yes, the Hochevar experiment should end.

If we know one thing, it's that we're going to get to watch that play out over the course of the season, barring injury.

Irving Falu???

Royals put Betancourt on DL, promote Falu from Omaha
By BOB DUTTON
The Kansas City Star

The Royals placed infielder Yuniesky Betancourt on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to Wednesday because of a sprained right ankle. They filled his spot on the roster by promoting infielder Irving Falu from Class AAA Omaha. To create space for Falu on the 40-man roster, the Royals transferred reliever Joakim Soria from the 15-day to the 60-day disabled list.

Falu is a 28-year-old switch hitter who was selected in the 21st round of the 2003 draft. He has never been in the majors before and was batting .306 this year at Omaha.

Why not Giavotella? WTH?

They essentially have the same stats except Giavotella has a larger sample size. So to answer the question, I have no stinking idea.

They probably don't want to bounce him back and forth?

Gio is not an elite prospect, and I'm not one for treating him with kid gloves. The notion that he's going to improve his defense at the minors is a farce; he can do the same type of work at the ML level because it will either happen or it won't.

I could somewhat understand the thought behind having a Gordon "learn" LF in the minors because he was also struggling at the plate at the same time, so you don't want his offensive failings compounding the difficulty of making defensive adjustments.

I was actually hoping this bump was because Myers was promoted, which obviously isn't the case but should be soon.

Generally shitty but improving as of late:

.290/.339/.420

OBP way too low and poor-fair OPS. Looking like a completely wasted pick at this point.
