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. Didn't see that coming.

I expected Melky to fall back a bit (.280/15/70/70/15) while Sanchez was about halfway between 2010 and 2011 forms (back to his career average).

Looked like a fair trade at the time... obviously the wind has blown a different direction.

We have a very easy 6 game home-stand (OAK-MIN). There is no gawddamn reason we should do anything worse than 4-2.........................OTHER THAN THE FACT THAT WE ****ING SUCK AT HOME.

Time to change that shit up.

Had that 0-12 streak been a 6-6 run, They'd be 27-21.

Liked the trade at the time. Seemed very sensible, since I thought both Melky and Frenchy had their "career years" last season.

Be hypocritical if I bitched too much at this point.

ditto, liked the trade at the time, but it flopped. Hard for me to monday-morning quarterback it now.

I did too. I'd sell high on a bat on a chance for a decent pitcher just about every time.
