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.

Yeah, although his defense (particularly his throwing) has been getting better.

I am not talking best of the best. If you check out the list below there are plenty of proven solid major league pitchers that we can get this offseason without trading anything. Seriously guys, we do not need to trade anything and yet we can still greatly improve the rotation by getting one or two of these guys to come here next season. Perhaps get one of the better ones, eg, Cain, Greinke, A. Sanchez for a long term deal (3-5 years) and get another older and cheaper filler guy for a year or two eg, Lowe, Marcum to fill next seasons rotation until another younger guy is ready. This is would mimic a lot of what Washington did this past offseason and that has worked well for them. (except that had to do some trading).

Cain is already locked up to a long term deal with SF.

I think A. Sanchez, Marcum or an older guy like Lohse or Lowe are our best bets.

That list still includes Cain, who signed a huge extension with the Giants.

There's no excuse for not signing two guys. I'd love it to be Sanchez/Marcum. That makes a ton of sense to me. Overpay to get Sanchez (who has true ace stuff) and convince Marcum to come home.

Gunna get a quick workout in, then take off for The K. First game I'll be at this season. Hope Hosmer's in the lineup (don't really give a shit how he's playing, dude's awesome).

Can't wait to get my life-size replica of Tim Collins, too.

5 for 9 so far in two games with a double and a triple. It's only 2 games but I don't see if he does anything resembling his AA numbers I don't see how they can keep him down and trot out Frenchy every day for much longer.
