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.

Oh, agreed.

If they actually pulled off Garza and Marcum, they'd have a good shot at competing within the division.

Garza
Marcum
Hochevar
Chen
Odorizzi

with a bunch of guys as depth and potentially knocking on the door. That staff would certainly be good enough to compete in the central if the offense steps up a bit.

You could see Duffy in late-August/September. I also wouldn't be surprised to see John Lamb rise quickly once he's healthy. But in this case, you don't NEED it to happen.

Would put the Royals into a situation where if Mike Montgomery or Chris Dwyer really gets his crap together, it's just a bonus, rather than NEEDING one of those two to get his crap together.

I think this offense is going to take off once there aren't two obvious holes in the order, as there have been with Dyson and Frenchy. Clearly, Cain needs to stay healthy, and this is a concern.

No such worries for Myers.

Since it's the ASB I thought I'd share some photos with you guys that I have from days gone by of our team. These first two are of the program from the very first Royals game.

That program is pristine. Still looks like it did the day I bought it.

Here are some images from what I think is Fan Appreciation day in 1977. Maybe 1978. This was the ONLY time they let the fans on the field to walk around the warning track and actually interact with the players.

This one I believe is Larry Gura. With my Mom and sister

Here's a really good image of Whitey with my Mom's eyeball in the corner. I was drunk probably.

One of my favorite players of all time. Amos Otis. AO and I had a talked about this hot chick in the picture. AO was not well liked by the Royals brass. He was not fond of Whitey Herzog, coining the famous nickname "The White Rat" for Whitey. But damn he was fun to watch play CF.
