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.

For all the Fielder talk.. I really don't think he is THAT good.. plus that was a solid team in Milwaukee defensively so they could kinda cover him up. I think detroit is full of bats who can't field and make him look worse.

Here's to hoping!

Cecel was bankrupt and had some sad stuff going on in his life. I always liked it when he hit balls at the Old Detroit Staduim that went off the roof and embarrassingly (for the pitcher) came rolling off back into the field.

I dunno man.

His stats are pretty ****ing good.

The other thing about B-Rush is that he never lied. Coach Self would be like, “Did everyone make curfew last night? If you didn’t make curfew, raise your hand.” All of us that broke curfew kept our hands down — except B-Rush. He’d raise his hand and tell on himself. 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.

yep. You've got to go through some pretty odd contortions to spin this as a net plus for the Royals. Will his fat ass decline after the next 4 or 5 years? Maybe, but I'd rather not look past 4 or 5 years.

They actually upgraded from V-Mart. We would have probably been better off had he not been injured.

I have heard a lot of people talk about Fielder being overrated and could likely be a bust for his next team.

I don't know if I buy that but I sure do hear it a lot.

They are usually talking about his body, thinking he's gonna eat his way out of a career. However, he's still young and going strong, he's got to be good for at least another 4 years or so. The Tigers may regret this contract in 2018 since big guys apparently age a bit quicker, but until then, we've now got to beat them with Fielder.

He's been a fat slob since he entered the league, but he's an unusually athletic and agile fatty who has missed little if any time due to injuries.

I wouldn't bet on him going anywhere anytime soon, other than right up the Royals' ass, of course.

I was completely shocked to see the Tigers sign him....did not see it coming!

I then got depressed thinking how long we have to compete against him in the division.
F word
