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.

This thread isn't about the Orioles I thought...Orioles suck! Too bad they will have their best season in a long time and do nothing with it.

Does having the toughest schedule in the MLB get you a medal or something?

Good try though, scrub.

That's exactly right. Now crawl back to the thread we so graciously allowed you and stay out of our thread with your ignorance.

I honestly think the biggest problem with our system is our pitching development program in the minors. It would be one thing if just a few of our pitching prospects were struggling. But ALL of our pitching prospects struggle, despite having very projectable stuff.

They usually do pretty well through the AA transition, especially at High-A Wilmington.

It's been the transition to AAA and above that has stalled most of them.

Rick Knapp will make serious changes... but he was hired 3 years too late.

He can work his magic on his newcomers, but what's to be done with Monty, Lamb and Dwyer? They will not have a place in our rotation because we will have some serviceable pitchers signed for 4-5 years and in 2014 we get Duffy and Paulino back. I suppose if Hoch has a hot half we could trade him to open up a spot for Lamb in 2013 (assuming he's ready.)
