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 know they have called him that since high school.

People poked fun at it when he was in Cleveland too.

I would imagine it's because the Royals are attempting to cover something up. With Paulino done for the season the Royals should consider themselves out of it and begin selling.

I have to say guy, the Royals lost their best starting pitcher for the year.. we're gonna depend on Mazzaro, Hoch, Chen and these other guys? Especially while the Royals offense scores 2-3 runs a game?

I don't understand how he isn't on the ignore list for every Royals fan who frequents these threads.

I propose universal ignore for Prowl/UCF/Al Bundy. He has nothing of substance to add plus he's an idiot and a troll. Ignore only works if we all do it and don't quote his worthless ass.

Also, I continue to hear everyone talk about just signing pitchers in FA this offseason, but I think we get back to a Torii Hunter situation where even overpaying a bit isn't enough to lure a top talent with options. I think we are going to have to hugely overpay to get a valuable starter, and I don't think we will be willing to do that.
Disagree. Before this team had no potential of hopes of winning. Things are different now. Players might contemplate the Royals more now without having to be greatly over-payed.

Not with this pitching staff, if you told me Paulino was coming back this year and Odorizzi would be called up and be decent.. but no chance now.

If Hos and Gordon would start hitting like they're capable of, things would be very different.

Who's to say Odorizzi won't get called up now?
