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.

That's a lot of coin to pay someone to be DH'ing.. whoever it is.

If the Royals continue to avoid even threatening post-season success, I'm going to define "championship" by having someone break the organization's regular season HR record. Seriously, it's embarrassing.

And a flag should be raised for that accomplishment. We could do it on Wacky Wednesday, which comes after T-Shirt Tuesday, and Mother**** Fans Monday.

It kills me every year when 2 or 3 players are flirting with 30+ HR's at the allstar break. 34 frickin homeruns is ridiculous.

36, which is just as pathetic.

Power is expensive, which was reaffirmed today.

OK, my glass-half-full post of the day.

MLB has STILL not yet announced whether we'll have the 2nd wild card this season, or not till 2013. That tells me they are trying to make it happen.

If our division is as terrible as many think it could be, with the Indians leading the pack, followed by the White Sox and Twins, due to the unbalanced schedule, we could rack up tons of cheap wins while the Yankees/Red Sox fight with the Blue Jays and Rays, and the Rangers/Angels fight with.... oh, never mind.

Well, maybe we can get lucky. If the AL East manages to beat themselves out of a wild card, and Selig gets the 2nd wild card done this season, maybe the West grabs one and we grab the other.

Or, maybe we beat the Tigers, heh

Key phrase bolded. Only an idiot would play Cabrera everyday at 3B.

But, hey, if Detroit wants to trot out Cabrera at 3B everyday, that's fine with me.

1) He's more likely to get injured playing a high-impact position like 3B
2) He's probably at least a -10/-15 player at 3B, which could cost 4 or 5 wins a year.

They also don't really have a good hitter to slot into the DH slot.

Would be a giant waste to play him everyday at 3B, but I'm sure they could swing it for NL-park series (interleague or postseason)

Why on earth do I always think 34. I know it's 36, yet every damn time I'm thinking of the record, 34 is what pops in my head.

I know his numbers, but Fielder could be the most expensive Mike Jacobs ever. I do like that Fielder goes to Detriot. I remember his dad jacking homeruns.

Heyman tweeted that Cabrera is willing to move to 3B to let Fielder play first. We should trade them Yuni... dream defensive infield.

I remember his fat ass dad brushing my brother and I aside when we asked him for an autograph way back in the day.

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night?

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

No doubt. Fielder is not as bad as a lot of people think at 1B, but Cabrera is a butcher at 3B. Who is going to DH for them, that they'd move Cabrera to 3rd for?

I hope the Tigers are willing to move him there too. It would be nice if their defense gives away a few of the runs they gained by signing Fielder.
