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.

Difference is WGN is nationally syndicated. Hawk is such a cheerleading homer who makes no attempt to be objective. I will be the first one to throw a party when he is dead.

He might be a d-bag, but I guarantee the organization loves him. Why? 1. He's pro-Sox. 2. He generates debate and thus publicity, no matter how.

Of course he's a cheerleading homer. If the Royals want to back up a Brinks truck for me, I'll willingly and gladly sing the praises of David ****ing Glass himself. "Model owner!!!" I'll claim. "And he has a wonderful son, Dan!!" I'll scream with glee.

No matter that both are worthless pieces of shit.

I remember Splitt going off during the 2002 when those 2 White Sox fans ran onto the field and starting attacking Tom Gamboa. When Splitt saw the reply and saw the first base umpire standing like a statue and not doing anything to help Gamboa, Splitt blew a gasket. I tried looking it up on youtube but could not find it.

If I recall Neifi Perez was the first guy on the field on those guys. I still say those 2 guys should have left the field on stretchers with broken limbs and some other serious injuries.

If Neifi landed any punches those were the only hits he got as a Royal.

Did those two ever explain why they did it? Or was it just a random act of drunken stupidity?

Lowe, Feldman Likely To Be Available In Trades
By Ben Nicholson-Smith [June 1, 2012 at 9:08am CST]

The Rangers are expected to make right-handers Scott Feldman and Mark Lowe available at the trade deadline, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com reports. GM Jon Daniels will look for a right-handed hitting outfielder in return.

The Rangers have an abundance of right-handed pitching after signing Roy Oswalt. Relief prospect Tanner Scheppers continues to pitch effectively at Triple-A, and Neftali Feliz will re-join the pitching staff at some point.

Lowe, 28, has a 2.66 ERA with 8.9 K/9 and 2.7 BB/9 in 20 1/3 innings two months into the season. He'll earn $1.7MM this year before hitting free agency. Feldman, 29, has a 4.50 ERA with 4.1 K/9 and 4.5 BB/9 in 24 innings as a fill-in starter and reliever this year. The Rangers figure to decline their $9.25MM club option ($600K buyout) for Feldman if he's still on their roster after the season.

Do ... not... want Feldman. He's like an AL version of Jair Jurrjens.

Almost draft time, and thus the need to get excited about players that I've largely never seen play.
