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.

Looks like Cole Hamels has agreed to a 6 year deal with the Phillies.

Probably a repost.....but oh well....



and just like that, its over as quickly as it began.....

Twinge in shoulder convinces Kendall to end comeback bid

ANAHEIM, CALIF. -- It didn’t take long for former Royals catcher Jason Kendall to abort his attempted comeback at Class AA Northwest Arkansas. A slight twinge in his surgically-repaired right shoulder made for an easy decision.

“I didn’t blow it out,” he said, “but I knew the next time, my shoulder would be done. I wouldn’t be able to pick up my kids or have a normal life.”

Kendall, 38, announced his retirement Tuesday prior to the Naturals’ game against Tulsa. He played just two games, getting one hit in three at-bats, after agreeing last Thursday to a minor-league contract.

“I owed it to myself to try it,” he said. “I didn’t want to get 10 years down the road and wonder what would have happened. I did things the way I wanted my whole career, and I had to try this.”

The comeback came nearly two years after a major shoulder injury forced Kendall to the disabled list. Multiple surgeries followed, which delayed his efforts to resume his career.
“I worked my butt off to get to this point,” he said, “and I appreciate the Royals for letting me do this.”

Kendall was a three-time All-Star in a 15-year career with the Pirates, A’s, Cubs, Brewers and Royals. He batted .288 with a .366 on-base percentage in 2,085 career games. His 2,025 career games as a catcher rank fifth in history.
“Someone asked me what the highlight of my career was,” Kendall said. “Every day. I had the greatest gig I know. I had fun, and I don’t have a single regret.”
The Royals signed Kendall, a free agent, after the 2009 season to a two-year deal for $6 million in hopes that his experience and leadership could bolster a young club and, in particular, a young pitching staff.

“Jason Kendall was old school,” Royals designated hitter Billy Butler tweeted, “and played the game right (and) all while being a great dad. It was an honor to be your teammate. Great career.”

Kendall batted .256 with a .318 on-base percentage in 118 games in 2010 for the Royals before the injury forced him to the disabled list. A setback after the initial surgery forced him to spend all of last season on the disabled list.

The Royals employed Kendall earlier this year as a part-time coach and instructor while he continued his rehab efforts. Kendall said he expected to discuss a continuing relationship later Tuesday with general manager Dayton Moore.

“I want to stay in the game,” Kendall said, “and I’d like to stay with this club. Dayton is coming down here tonight (to Northwest Arkansas) to watch (left-hander Mike) Montgomery. I’m sure we’ll talk.”

In all liklihood, they will do something that will make everyone go "meh." That assumes, of course, they don't move Francouer. Which is addition by subtraction.

When you're moving a rental closer (Broxton) and a LOOGY (Mijares) as your primary pieces, you're not going to get much back in return.

If they're lucky, they'll get back a piece or two like Will Smith, who MIGHT turn out to be OK in a few years. The other option is probably a lottery ticket like James McDonald/Kyle Davies.

Of course, if they can manage to pull off a deal with the Giants, all bets are off. You never know when Sabean when do something astronomically dumb.

Petro pissed about the Royals missing out on Wandy since the prospects traded were lack-luster and it was more about salary than anything.

Would have been a fine acquisition by DM. Not stellar, but solid and would have given up an advantage in FA.

Yet another small market team with a similar payroll to the Royals who are only 2.5 back in their division. F.M.L.

Yeah, it's Our Time.......to slit our wrists.

Pitt GM hired over a year after DM, too.

There is just no arguing the situation: Moore is a solid amateur scout but a terrible GM, and the Glass family is a joke.

Francouer is 3 for 35 in his last 9 games. There is no way Myers could top this production.

And getting worse. You can tell he's pressing more and more. For a guy who's already a prolific free swinger, it's a disaster. Richards must have thrown him 80% slider/curves to the outside last night, and Frenchy repeatedly swung at them.
