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.

I really hate doing this crap, but it's it time to fire both the GM and Manager. This shit is, yet again, unbearable to watch.

No money to do it with besides the draft? Nonsense. Moore consistently throws money away in poor decisions at the ML level, and we don't have to look very hard over the last several years to identity severe misuse of funds.

Anyway, his success at finding amateur talent has been his saving grace in KC, and he looks far less foolish than he did in the summer of '09, when he could have justifiably been run out of town had the owner paid any attention to the team or given the smallest ****.

Yeah between "pitching is the currency of baseball," "little/no payroll flexibility" and "it takes 10 years to rebuild a ML franchise" I'm getting really tired of Moore.

Pitching, as we all have established, sucks. If there's no payroll flexibility, why are you signing ****heads like Yuni & Quintero while keeping worthless guys like Hochevar around? And the Rays, Marlins, Nationals and D-Backs have all shit all over your "10 years" comment at some point in the last 10 years.

Hell of it is, though, is that there's been 1 constant throughout all the sucking, and it doesn't look like Glasshole is going anywhere (at least that I've seen). Really really hope I'm wrong, though, cause an ownership change would definitely make me feel better about the entire state of the franchise right now...

The Pirates' talent level isn't much/any better than ours.


They play smart, we play stupid.


Yost decided to do this merry-go-round with the players just to get Butler on the field. Yost is the one that loves to stick that moron Betancourt out there constantly even though he almost always costs as much as he gains us.

The Houston Astros have acquired outfield prospect D'Andre Toney from the Kansas City Royals to complete a trade from March.

The Astros had sent catcher Humberto Quintero and outfielder Jason Bourgeois to the Royals in exchange for minor league pitcher Kevin Chapman and a player to be named later.

Toney, who had been at Kansas City's extended spring training this season, was selected by the Royals in the 14th round of the 2011 draft. The 20-year-old will report to Houston's minor league club in Greenville.

Anytime you can give up prospects to acquire two absolutely shitty players, you simply have to make that move.
