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.

I'll be honest, I really don't have any interest in going to the All-Star game. But if we somehow get a starter in there (God forbid Hosmer, Gordon, etc. kick enough ass to get votes over Yankees & Red Sox....), I'll do what I have to to be in the stadium.

But **** everybody, we're gunna start winning again.

It is beginning to look like Rex Hudler will replace Frank White as the TV analyst, and it also appears that Ryan wont be moving to radio.

I've never heard the guy, but from what I read, this will be a pretty massive change.

Hudler has no ties to KC (except, oddly enough, an arrest in KCI airport for possession of MJ), but he is a former player with a ton of broadcasting experience. He was the analyst for the Angels for 8 or 9 years till they decided to not renew his contract a few years ago.

From what people describe, Hudler is basically Frank White's evil twin from bizarro world, a polar opposite. His broadcasting style has been described as very, very enthusiastic and energetic to almost an extreme, to the point where he might be an acquired taste. That might be an odd pairing with Ryan.

We'll see....

Sounds like they kept the music from 1985 too.

Coach Self would ask him why he didn’t make curfew and he’d say, “Because the club was crackin’!” Everyone would laugh and he’d make B-Rush run a little bit.

If it gets around that time, and you really want in, let me know. I know how to sneak into either stadium, used to do it all the time in high school and college.

Hell yeah. That was back when Arrowhead was legit sold out every game (as opposed to the TV sellouts they have now). I'd go to about 4 or 5 games a year. It was great.

If I recall correctly, he might have been one of the broadcasters in MLB the Show for the PS3.

Gordon's arbitration hearing is scheduled for February 16th. If we're going to have a long-term deal before spring training, we will probably hear about it within the next 12 days.
