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.

No one can outsuck the Asstros. They really are that bad. They have like 5 road wins all year, heh.

i saw that the first base coach was dismissed.

was there an actual reasoning to this. one that i missed on here. what's the justification of firing a first base coach? obviously i'm late to the party, but is our gm completely incompetant? (i already know the answer to this, just want to know the "official press release of the firing").

thanks in advance.

Didn't the astros beat KC this year?

*EDIT* ok we took 2/3 from them, I just checked. For some reason I thought we lost that series....maybe I'm thinking of the Pirates.

The Pirates kicked our face in. But they would also be in the playoffs if they started today.

It really is odd seeing the Buccos play this well. McCutchen is ridiculous and AJ Burnett was a damn good signing for them. They have a pretty solid pen as well.

It's yet another example over the last few years of a team with a similar payroll to the Royals having success.

Moore should be ashamed.

There are numerous examples of this the last several years. Sure I wish Glass would spend some more money too, I wish he'd spend $200 million a year and give us a super team but that's not feasible. Before they gutted the team to bring up the young guys they were spending 75-85 million a year on payroll. And that was while also spending record amounts in the draft and Latin America. But now the payroll has been chipped down to bring up Hosmer and Moose and everyone else playing on a rookie contract, we've devolved back into that cheap argument. It's partially BS... we just spend money on guys like Jose Guillen. Meanwhile other teams like Colorado, Oakland, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Milwaukee are at least making a run here and there spending the same amount of money the Royals do.

Royals can no longer spend "big" on the draft, and thus there's no excuse for our payroll to be anything less than middle of the pack since we're not setting records in L.A.

"Big" because our total costs, while more than anyone else, were not exponentially greater. Several million dollars. Chump change in MLB terms.

Seriously, I would be willing to bet that if Glass pushed up payroll and made the team competitive, the increased revenue would offset the cost if not generate a higher margin (Let alone potential post-season revenue.) There is no reason not to go get the two best free agent starting pitchers on the market this offseason.
