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.

Wtf is up with Cain?

Is he still rehabbing or is he just not hitting minor league pitching?

Cincinnati Reds prospect Billy Hamilton, who is playing in the futures game in KC this weekend, stole his 100th base the other night. In 78 games. He's on pace for 170+ steals, which would annihilate any minor league record. He's actually been caught 21 times too. He's hitting .323 with a .400+ OBP.

His rehabs are not going well. Lingering injury is preventing him from playing over 5 innings plus he has pulled from the lineup a couple times.

BUT this is actually a good thing because it is sounding more and more like we are bringing up Myers to play CF after the break. If Cain was healthy he would be up and Myers would still be blocked by Frenchy.

Its unfortunate for Cain, but I'd much rather see Myers.

I'm sure that goes for all of us.

Thanks for the info, btw.

No problem. It does suck for Cain and we will need him but for now it's clear Frenchy will have to be traded to make room for both. And with that deadline almost a month away that will give Cain more time to get better and hopefully come up with a Frenchy trade. Like you said we are much better off with Myers over Cain.

Yeah, I'd much rather see Cain in CF and Myers in RF. Goodbye Frenchy.

There are at least, at ****ing least, two players whom I'd cut long before Maier: Dyson and Sanchez.
When's the last time Maier even played?

Yes, but Maier is not a LFBG (lightning-fast black guy).

We must have an LFBG to play CF. We must!

∙ In the late 1980s, the club consistently drew at least 2 million fans a season. It was considered a disappointment if the Royals didn't have at least 30,000 people in the stands every night.

∙ In the span of a few short years in the early 1990s, everything fell apart.


The fall can be tied to a handful of events, but the biggest ones came in 1990, when general manager John Schuerholz left Kansas City to run the Atlanta Braves, and in 1993, when owner Ewing Kauffman died. Kauffman was beloved and engaged, and he wasn't afraid to lose millions of his own money in the pursuit of championships. Before his death, Kauffman fretted that the team would be moved elsewhere when he was gone. So he arranged a succession plan that left the team to a charitable trust. Kauffman meant well, but, for the rest of the decade, the Royals were in limbo until Wal-Mart CEO David Glass bought the team in 2000.



By 1994, it was clear Kauffman's benevolent ways were gone.

Baseball America just came out with their mid-season top 50 prospect list. Royals have 3 guys:

#3 - Meyers
#29 - Odorizzi
#46 - Bubba

Top 50
