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.

And regarding money...

They will certainly have the salary space to sign one, if not two, good pitchers in the offseason. Maybe not aces, but good pitchers. They will certainly have the prospects to acquire a James Shields/Matt Garza/etc through trade (without giving up Myers).

We have documented that pretty well in this thread.

Now... will they do it?

They absolutely will have room for a Shawn Marcum type pitcher. That is BARE minimum. If they don't sign two free agent pitchers in that realm, I will know they aren't serious about competing. Frenchy needs to not be on the opening day roster next year. Myers is back to tearing up AAA. Colon is also making a push over the last couple weeks. I am still convinced Odorizzi is not ready, but probably will be by the end of spring training.

If they don't think 50 AB in September adds value, fine. But don't mock this fanbase by leaving Myers down until May/June next year.

The good note is that this gives me a decent chance to nab Myers in my fantasy keeper/auction league next year. He would look nice anchoring my team for the next 8 years with Trout and Harper.
Better get ready then. The fact that Myers isn't here now shows that winning is not priority one.

And the Royals are not signing two high-quality FA pitchers this off-season. I've asked before, but: Who would sign with this team when the GM has said that they won't compete until '14?

Its pertinent if Seattle decides to deal King Felix this winter. He's got two more years of team control, and Seattle is unlikely to do anything in that time.

If they were gonna deal Felix, they shoulda done it before the deadline and the Royals should have been involved.

I'm with Rany on this one. You don't want to pay for three playoff runs when you can't possibly make the first one. My guess is that another team would have and should have offered more than Kansas City under the deadline scenario.

If Felix is available in the offseason, though, the Royals should definitely be involved when the cost is two playoff runs...

I'll be damned if Guthrie doesn't look like a real, live major league pitcher. Compared to Sanchez, he's freakin' Roger Clemens.

Guthrie has certainly looked better since coming to KC.. I'd be surprised if we didn't resign him for next year, since we "aren't competing until 2014"

Don't like this at all. Just looking like an excuse for inactivity this off-season.

I think Guthrie has a final arbitration year or a team option if they offer him arbitration.
