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.

The most apt comparison to Butler is Mike Sweeney. Fans bitched about him as the "problem" without having any clue about how damn good he was. His OPS+ from '99-'05:
129
131
133
148
120
118
127

Yeah, Mike ****ing Sweeney and his contract were the primary problems with the Royals. "They paid the wrong guy." Wow. It couldn't be that the team paid only one guy...

I'm not sure if there's clutch but I absolutely think there are people who choke on their tongue in pressure situations. I don't know how anyone could have watched Farnsworth pitch in KC and think otherwise.

Though I was being a smartass--surprise!--I believe that al and I agree on this point; there is such a thing as choking, but there isn't such a thing as "clutch." The latter suggests that a player can "turn it on," thereby holding something back in earlier situations.

Do I believe that pressure shakes some? Absolutely. Look no farther than pussies like Hochevar for proof of this, but this should come as no surprise, given how he entered the league.

We're just used to losing and it seems we blame the best player. Sweeney was a stud...and the face of losing. Beltran wouldve been that guy as well, wouldn't have mattered.

A sweep of the Indians would put us right back in the division chase. I was surprised when I looked at the standing today and saw that the Sox were 9-1 in their last ten and on a five game tear.
