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.

**** Yuni. How do you continue to get WORSE? You were awful last year and you continue to get worse this year? Edit: Wrong thread, but the point stands. Yuni's defense has cost this team two critical outs.

Well, it stands to reason that as he ages, what skills he DOES have will be eroded by time.

Happening already? Who knows?

I think it primarily comes down to focus. He isn't in the ready position when the ball is delivered. That created the issue earlier. He had to break his knees to initiate the jump rather than just starting from the bottom. He is getting fatter, which is reducing his range and he cuts corners when making routine plays. He epitomizes the lazy guy every little league coach tells you not to be and it annoys the shit out of me.

Peter Principle.

Nothing else needs to be said about DM. As soon as he's fired--please let that be soon--he'll be hired by a successful organization to be the director of scouting or to fill some other FO job that has a large say in amateur talent.

This will be similar to what happened with Allard Baird, who didn't have time to take a shit before Boston called offering him a larger salary than he earned in KC to join their front office. Both are good baseball minds; both were/are in positions to fail in KC.

Let's quit making excuses for the shit that is DM as a GM.

David Glass didn't throw $7M per at Frenchy. David Glass didn't reacquire, FFS, Yuni. Dayton is a ****ing slobbering moron as a GM.

Sadly I think we're stuck with Ned and DM through at least next season...it's a joke really but it'd be typical Royals.

Sure it would.

Seattle would have seven less wins this year!

BTW: If you want to see something hilarious, go to the Royals website and check the fan chat board. Over the years its been notorious for rose-colored glass uber-homers that continue to direct the band on the Titanic Deck as the ship goes glub....glub....glub.

Even THEY are freaking out now!

Glass doesn't want to pay a current GM and manager and ex-GM and manager. They'll blame this year on Tommy John and say "just wait till 2014 when we start to compete." Why not? KC fans have been swallowing that fertilizer for 20 years. Why stop now?

Damn. Could be firing a KC football head coach and a KC baseball manager DURING THE SEASON all in one year. Too bad The Sprint Center never got an NBA franchise or Kansas City could have went for the trifecta. Owners are jokes
