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.

Bottom line, Ned Yost needs to go. We cannot afford his mistakes when we start to compete. Time to make the change now and start some continuity for later.
Which won't happen until DM is fired, since even the lowly Pirates wipe their ass with "The Process."

That would be another 3 years of combined ineptitude at the soonest.

Out of town ownership creates this culture of indifference.

Is there a maximum number of people allowed to be part of the ownership group? We could all just pool together and buy the team. A hundred thousand of us could each chip in 3,500 each and have the 351 million.

Im in!! My first acts as a part of the new ownership team are trading Frenchy for a bag of balls, calling up Wil, and firing Yost. Id also like a lifetime supply of stadium sheboigans. Damn I miss those things.

DM is under contract till the end of the 2014 season. David Glass isn't going to pay an Ex-GM and a new GM at the same time. It's about profit, remember?

Wal-Mart Baseball.

Hey look Royals Fans, we're giving away lunchboxes and hot dogs for a buck!

Fireworks!

Have a Frenchy T-Shirt!

Do all teams have as many special nights and promotions as the Royals do?

I would guess so. Obviously, I haven't checked every teams web site but I just went to the Yankees promotions schedule and they have plenty of them just like we do. Good items too. Check it out.

Thanks that was interesting. I had looked up the Skanks recently concerning their attendance. Seems like every time you see Yankee Stadium, it looks to be over half empty. Hilarious posts from the fans there.
