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.

Nice that Starling has had some early success to build confidence. His trade value is probably pretty strong right now. Just saying...

Also, it's imperative to win tonight's game because Sanchez is starting the series opener in Detroit tomorrow.

I have gotten too depressed this past week looking at and being concerned with wins/losses. We were 4 games under .500 less than a week ago and now we are 8 games under .500 and just barely above the twinkies in the division

Hopefully it's his last start in a Royals uniform.

We will likely drop to a game below the Twins, then win 75% of our games until we get to 3 under .500, then have an 8-game losing streak.

Third worst team in the AL. "Well, our record doesn't really indicate..."

No, it does really indicate accurately.

The talent is there offensively....but the overall inconsistency is just overwhelming.

We all knew that the starting pitching was going to be terrible....and it will continue to be terrible until Dayton Moore pulls some magic rabbit out of a hat and actually sign a couple SP's that are actually worth a damn.

Sucks that our pitching staff has caught the injury bug, but injuries are the part of the game and our starting pitching was going to suck regardless.

I think this team would get a huge boost if Greinke somehow came back to KC.

Agreed. But the pitching staff is in absolute shambles.

Its not just the pitiching as i mentioned earlier. They got decent pitching last night. Too many times the bats go dormant. These guys have no idea how to generate runs sometimes. Little things win ball games sometimes.

The young bats will develop, which is what we're trying to say. Moose and Hosmer will get better. Myers, FFS Dayton, will only get better (once he finally arrives).

There's legit talent here. There is no such (healthy) talent, save Odo on the horizon for the starting rotation.
