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.

And yes, that would mean Dylan Bundy or Manny Machado of #orioles, if not both. #Marlins aiming high, to put it mildly.


Jerry Crasnick ‏@jcrasnick

So unless the #Marlins lower their sights considerably before Tuesday, that doesn't bode well for Johnson being dealt.



Marlins gone crazy no team is gonna pay that.

Prospects? We traded Melky for Sanchez. Which at the time looked like a fair trade. Chen was a free agent off the street and Guthrie we swaped for Sanchez. Rany needs to pull his head out of his ass on that one.

What's crazy is how similar acquiring Bedard/Burnett was to acquiring Chen/Sanchez.

Bedard vs. Chen: To me, this is a wash. Bedard's 4.32 ERA and 1.45 WHIP in the NL are not impressive (and project to numbers no better than Chen's in the AL this year).

Burnett vs. Sanchez: Before the season started, a very similar thing. Both guys with great past success who have struggled recently. Sanchez was younger and cheaper, and had been really good more recently. The Royals had Burnett's old pitching coach on the staff, and apparently still weren't interested in him.

Of course, since this is the Royals, the breaks ended up working out exactly against the Royals.

Re: Dayton Moore saving his job:

If the Royals are NOT at .500 or better and showing real signs of life next year, I don't see any way Dayton Moore survives without the fan base revolting.

He needs to follow through on acquiring REAL starting pitching before the start of next year. If that doesn't happen, and they don't start winning, fan support is going to fall apart. And he'll be gone.

TRADE FOR MATT GARZA. The Royals can pay the price. Easily.

SIGN A QUALITY FA.

SIGN A LOTTO TICKET FA, or TRADE FOR ONE.

No, no. That's on me. Wrong word choice. Should have said trade compensation. And Rany admitted he didn't hate the trade at the time. Simply said that DM ****ed up, and he's paid to be right, which is all true.

Maybe that will bring down his asking price in the off season for us.
