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.

Frank White blasts the Royals in national press
Jul 9, 8:55 AM
The bad-news story circulating nationally during the All-Star Game
feel-good week involves Frank White and the Royals.

A primer: The Royals' best-ever second baseman quit his job as a
community relations person after a pay cut a few years ago, Then he
was basically fired as a broadcast analyst.

The national media are paying attention, because White infamously has
said he won't step foot inside Kauffman Stadium during the All-Star
festivities.

In a column in today's USA Today, White really brings his criticism of
the Royals.

"I'm done with the Royals. I just can't do it." And this: "I called my
wife (Teresa) into the bathroom and told her, 'I can't take their crap
anymore. I have to get away. If we have to sell everything we got,
we've got to leave here, because I can't put up with these people.'


Royals general manager Dayton Moore said he basically didn't
understand why White felt the way he did, but also said everyone needs
to move in the same direction in the organization.

White didn't, it appears, and now he's on the outside looking in
during All-Star week.
Our Time... for embarrasment

It's shameful and embarrassing what the way they've treated him.

Really the only thing in questinon is how far the ball will go and most of the time it is not that much farther than a regular game HR>

I know Frank quite well. He's a very nice guy, but he's a malcontent. The Royals have bent over backwards for over two decades since his retirement in order to give him opportunities within the organization. If they made a mistake, it was not setting boundaries sooner.

Funny that the Futures game was basically sold out and the HR Derby isn't? I do promise that if Butler was in it, it would be sold out. Either way, there really aren't many big time HR hitters in it.

Stanton's out, Hamilton's out, Papi's out.

Too bad Bryce Harper wasn't included in it instead of McCutcheon.

Yeah it's a really boring line-up... and you're right, Butler being in would sell it out plus SRO.

They said during the Futures game that it was sold out and SRO. Doesn't always look sold out because so many people walk around the outfield experience or stand behind the fence.

The host city gets more or less snubbed in this whole ASG fiasco and the city is reluctant to support it? Who'd a thunk it?

I don't understand this either. When given the chance, Falu has played better than Betancourt and Getz ever have.

This was clearly posted several times in this very thread earlier today. What exactly are you trying to accomplish by trolling these threads? Or any threads having to do with Royals baseball?

You're reaching Billay-like level with this crap
