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.

There is absolutely no way I trade Hosmer at this point. You simply couldn't get enough value for him. Johnny, I am loving your blog man. Keep it coming.

That being said, I'd still love to have him back. He might be completely nuts, but he made things fun and is great when he wants to be.

Yeah really... wonder what would've happened if Greinke hadn't vetoed going to the Nationals. There probably wouldn't be as many people predicting them to slip up.

Hosmer is the left handed Francour long swing...people think his defense is awesome, but it really sucks.

The swing is really long. I've heard Picollo justify it because Hosmer is tall, but I'm calling bullshit.

Loopy might be a better adjective than long in describing Hosmer's current approach of fail.

Jordan Zimmerman and Ian Desmond and probably Derek Norris would all be Royals.

Having Zimmerman and Desmond wouldn't suck. Desmond is a better bat but not as good defenisvely as Escobar. Zimmerman would be the Royals best pitcher - and I think he's about to devleop into a legitimate ace.

Not hard to project them keeping Cabrera without Cain lurking over his shoulder and with less need for pitching...

The Mariners are completely unbeatable anyway, so we aren't missing anything.

So, according to the radio broadcast, Three Royals batters in the first were called out LOOKING in the first inning by a minor league umpire. Chen is not getting the calls and the minor league umpire has now warned the dugout that he will not hear anymore complaining in the BOTTOM OF THE FIRSt.
