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.

Well, Ventura pretty much kicked ass today. Great velocity, movement and location on his pitches. He picked off one runner with a wicked pickoff move and throw. One thing I will say is that he needs to learn to mix his pitches better. At this point he's a terrific thrower who needs to learn to pitch. He got taken deep for one homerun and the other hit bounced off the top of the 12 foot centerfield wall. Final line: 7 IP 2H 1R 2BB 7K The official line doesn't include a batsman he hit in the walk total for whatever reason.

The more I think about it the more I like the Josh Johnson idea. We trade for him and re-sign him to a five year extension which also increases his 2013 salary. Totally win/win.

I mean, just for kicks, let's assume Johnson is worth ~20 mil per year. He is controlled for 2013 at 13.75. If you wrote up a contract worth ~90 million evenly divided over 2013-2017, I think he would take that. Which would be a great deal for both sides.

Glass isn't going to green light that type of deal. He's previously said that the organization would never have a $100M player.

If Glass is unwilling to spend on pitching, we may as well sell all of our talent now, because we don't have enough pitching to be competitive in the near future.

If thats the case, it's gonna be tough to compete.


A move I think would have been an idea for the Royals, would have been to buy on Hanley when the price was low. Put him at SS and move Escobar to 2nd. Make any sense?

Exactly the reason this thread has turned into apathy or venom. Royals fans are quickly realizing this franchise will be in the ****ter until the glass family gives up ownership.

Eh. HRam has a huge contract and he constitutes a large amount of risk in that respect. Also, I would leave Esky at short and move HRam to 2nd in that scenario.

Escobar would be the player switching positions if the Royals had acquired Ramirez.

Escy is a great defensive SS. Ramirez has been below average for a long time now.
