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.

He will probably take Sanchez spot in the rotation ... How bad does your starting five have to be if it includes Mazzaro?

And the Royals now have Yuni, Getz, and Gio for 2B up ...

I hope he's hurt. That would at least explain why his stuff is so mediocre. Even as he's struggled in past years, you could at least see he had upside. Just needed better command.

It matters to me because someone with local ties is less likely to move the team. It would also be nice to have someone here who sees and hears what is going on day-to-day.

Tonight's lineup is out:

Dyson Gordon 7 Butler 3 Frenchy 9 Giavotella DH Pena 2 Falu 5 Getz 4 Escobar 6 Chen 1

I'm not a big manager blamer, but this lineup when we are trying to take the series against the Red Sox? Might be the worst offensive lineup in the last couple of years here.

Yeah, that's pretty lame. Maybe a game off will set Hosmer straight, though?

That may just be the worst lineup Yost could run out there in a series deciding game against Boston.

Oh yeah, and we have an off day tomorrow. Maybe we're going to run a 5 man infield with all of the middle infielders we have in the lineup.

Awful.

I know, hes always been vocal about his liking to playing the infield, and in a way hes being rewarded for last nights home run. I guess.
