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.

Perhaps this is the wrong perspective, but I don't care about an extra year of control. I care only about doing everything possible to try to make a run at things in '13/'14, and it would be nice for Myers to come into ST next year knowing exactly what it's like to play and have some success at the ML level.

I agree. I'd call him up now, sort of like they did with Hosmer.

In six years, we'll all be really glad to have an extra full year of Myers in his prime....much more so than getting one month of his year 22 growing pains in a 100 loss? season.

Spreading out the free agency timeline of our young stars, if they are that, will theoretically help us keep them. A pipe dream, I know. But in managing a team, that's the way you'd have to think.

Hosmer's OBP is below .300. Pathetic.

Barely (sitting at .299).

Considering he's hitting .228, his OBP is actually quite good. I'll take a guy who is OBPing at 70 points higher than his average any day. He has already walked more this season - in more than 100 fewer at-bats - than he did a year ago.

If the growing pains now would help facilitate a run in '13/'14, I'll take it.
