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.

Sanchez DFA? That's an afternoon-maker!

I hope he refuses the assignment.

Bourgeois and Dyson have about a thimble-full of baseball instincts between the two of them. I see very little difference between them, except that Dyson is a little better baserunner and thrower, which makes him a better 4th OF.

And if they win, it will start off an unprecedented 20+ game win streak solely based on my thread-starting abilities. Or, more likely because they got rid of a POS pitcher who clearly didn't fit in with this group.

Let's not go completely crazy. I'm hoping this is a start of widespread changes for the remainder of this season.

Next step is ridding ourselves of Frenchy. Then Betancourt.

Now, if we can get something for Broxton (and I don't mean some low-A, mid-range pitching prospect), then trade him. But I want someone decent in return for him.

I think a lot of you guys overvalue low level pitching prospects. The fact is that established MLB players are worth more than low-level projectable arms.

I'd rather Betancourt first, then frenchy. He's too good a glove and arm in right field to sacrifice him before Yuni.

I don't care if their low-level (assuming you mean Low/High A ball). I just would like a high quality prospect, not some throw-in guy with possible "reliever" material if everything works out perfectly.

That's fine. But IMO, we have a better possibility of trading Frenchy. I really can't see anyone wanting Betancourt. We'll have to cut his worthless ass if we're to rid of him

Dyson provides a left-handed bat to pinch hit for Cain against righties. Bourgeois' only value now is as a pinch-runner, so naturally, on a day when we need arms in the bullpen, we are going to option him. I anticipate Verdugo will go back to AAA after tomorrow. Also - evidently Wil Smith is killing it down there over his last eight starts and could be a viable starter here.
