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.

It amazes me sometimes how CERTAIN the more casual fans are that their opinion is correct.

Also, I think Dayton Moore should be forced to read more message boards. At least when it comes to Major League roster construction and acquisitions.
It's obvious that you're well informed. I generally consider myself well informed but then I read some of the stuff here and feel like an idiot again haha.

Casual fans are called casual for a reason. There's nothing wrong with that, in fact it's probably healthier than the obsessions many of us have, but they're still annoying and often need pistol whipping.

Yeah. It's cool to not be very well-informed and be more casual about stuff. Just don't talk with the absolute certainty of someone who IS less casual.

I'm blessed to have a job that allows me to have open internet access throughout the day, with no corporate IT supervision, and a job that rewards my ability to get 8 hours of my work (relative to my peers) done in 3-4 hours.

My job is very similar in that regard.

I spend about 10 hours a week on calls, which gives me a lot of play time.

Interesting tidbit from Dayton Moore’s interview on the radio today. He said that Duffy and Paulino’s elbows were “compromised” a while ago, the Royals were ready for their elbows to blow up at any point. (He might have said the same for Blake Wood, but no one cares about him so they didn’t dwell on it). He said that Duffy’s was “compromised” in spring training of 2010, and was happy that Duffy went this far before it blowing out, since it allowed him to get up to the majors and get used to pitching in the show.

He was optimistic that all would return 100% except for Soria. He said there is little history of people returning from a 2nd tommy johns, so they don’t know what to expect.

I'm not a doctor... I only play one on the internet... but if you know a guy has "compromised" his elbow isn't there some preventative maintenance/treatment that can maybe be done to keep it from blowing out? Maybe not.

You can't rehab or rest out of a slightly torn UCL. If that's what he meant by "compromised".

Especially with his next start on Sat. when Yost may not be able to go to the pen because the Royals play 2 that day.

True. Then I'm wondering if a smaller procedure to repair a tear would be better than waiting until it's full blow TJ time.

Probably not, I'm just thinking out loud because I'm a frustrated Royals fan.
