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.

That's because the combo of DM and Glass is like a strong concoction of Full Retard.

I read that if the Royals lose tonight it will be their worst July in the history of the franchise.

Good. I'm pulling for absolute train wreckage the remainder of the season. Changes need to occur, and I'm hoping the first one starts with Glass selling the Team. It's the only LT solution to get out of this quagmire of suck.

One more game left in July for the Royals. That's all, just one Tuesday night against the Indians at home after an off day Monday.

No team will be happier to flip the calendar to August then the Royals.

Kansas City will need to beat Cleveland on Tuesday to prevent from having their worst July in franchise history.

The Royals are 6-19 in July. Their worst July record was 7-20 in 2004. In July 2009, they were 7-19.

The Royals have not batted that badly in July. Their .279 average ranked third in the majors for the month through Sunday, while their 113 runs were tied for eighth. They ranked 24th with 19 home runs and 16th with a .416 slugging percentage.

However, the pitiful pitching can accept the lion's share for the pathetic July record. The team ERA is 5.69, the worst in the majors. The Royals have allowed the most home runs, 37; given up the most hits, 260; and rank next to last in walks plus hits per inning pitches, 1.54.

Meanwhile, some decent starting pitching is being traded for less than top of the line prospects and the Royals appear to be on the sidelines.

Wandy Rodriguez is the best of the bunch that we could have traded for. The others have all been free agents to be.

Hey it's not like we throw around big claims all willy nilly and get fans hopes up or the league to pay some attention to us. Our Time was clearly tongue in cheek.

The Royals don't care about the trade deadline. Haven't you heard their radio commercials? Frenchy has the right stuff to be a Royal. We're battling to win the AL Central. Here's all that matters down the stretch:

Student Night-Local Music Showcase
Frenchy Quarter Thursdays (Now thru end of 2012)
All You Can Eat Seats (Royals Salute to Obesity)
Mr. Royal Retro Lunchbox Night
Fireworks Fridays
Retro Night
Family and Faith Night
Kids Sports Necklace Night
Fun Run Sunday
T-Shirt Tuesday
Buck Night
Eric Hosmer Bobblehead Doll
KU Day at the K
Moose Antlers Day
Health Awareness Night
Camo Cap Armed Forces Day
Royal Fleece Blanket Night

Interesting that the "Royal Fleece" is the last promo of the season. We've been "fleeced" all right...

But don't worry, by 2014 or 2015 this team will be a contender. Just give them another two or three years....
