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 only player I’ve been as comfortable coming to the plate in a pressure situation as Country Breakfast, was Mike Sweeney (who was a shockingly “clutch” player despite, ironically, also being the object of hate from Royals fans)

Hahaha, just in time to play them. Can we hand over more of our rejects with the agreement they will start against us?

Even with the "if he continues his current trajectory" to say he can be one of the best hitters of all time is a bit of a stretch at this time.

Agreed. But I am not willing to say that if he peaks he can be one of the greatest hitters of all time.

Isnt it arguments like this that prompted the unfortunate creation of the "Baltimore Orioles Repository" thread? In case you havent figured it out, fans of a team that havent won in more than 25 years and get outspent by their competition 3 and 4 times to 1 don't give the slightest shit about your perceived schedule injustices.

Not all-time, just Billy's era.

That's what he meant by 'his generation'.

True, I was mistaken on that I couldn't remember if he had said of all time or just his generation and I was being too lazy to recheck. I was wrong and I appreciate being corrected (seriously, not sarcastically) although I still stand by my comment. I hope I am wrong though about my comment.

Salvy Perez pulled from the lineup at Class AAA; lots of speculation that the catcher is on his way to the Royals.
