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.

Alex Gordon's minor league lines have me consistently gun-shy, effectively tempering what would otherwise be tremendous excitement.

Have you seen video of any of Myers' ABs? His swing looks nothing like Alex's, at least in my opinion. Quick, compact swing.

Making no comparison to Gordon's swing. At this point, the Royalsification has taken some hold; I half expect disappointment.

Ah. I was trying to find video of his Slam off Oswalt last week. A line drive bullet that he absolutely destroyed.

Odorizzi started today. 5.1IP, 7K's, 1BB, 2ER. Sporting a 2.41 ERA through 6 starts in Omaha thus far. 34 K's to 10 BB's. I think he'll get a few more starts (2/3) and be up here after the AS break. Les Norman was on the radio the other day and said he won't be an injury replacement or anything like that. He said when Odorizzi gets the call-up, it's for the long-term.
If he is going to get pitched around like that then the Royals aren't doing him any good keeping him down.

How can a hamstring/groin take ALL SEASON to heal?

That's what I was wondering. Didn't this happen right at the beginning of the 6-month-long season? And didn't they say he would be out for a couple weeks when it initially happened? What is going on here?

Wish I could get upset, but Gio has provided no reason for this.

Yes they are. We need to keep him down in order to control him longer. There's no point in bringing him up now.

Saving money. Probably the right choice since we're so close to avoiding Super 2, but money talks; we could control him as long as we wanted if we were OK with spending.

But that's not the Walmart way.

Just talked to Lorenzo Cain in the Royals clubhouse. Told me that he is running again, and hopes to be out playing games in a week or so.

Bob Dutton ‏@Royals_Report
#Royals manager Ned Yost says rehabbing C Salvy Perez could be activated as soon as next week if he has no setbacks on rehab assignment.

Interesting, because just yesterday on 810, both Bukaty and Joel Goldberg reported Cain was likely finished for 2012
