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.

This teams obsession with Dyson is ****ing comical.

Dyson has been playing well lately. He's a good fourth outfielder and pinch runner, imo.

What's not to like? His career .633 OPS coupled with below average fielding? To heck with that he's in the midst of a career year. his OPS is .683!!

He's also a young prospect and has plenty of time to improve. Heck he only turns 29 later this month.

We have two guys that would be better for this team (I'm not saying they are every day players mind you, just that they'd be better and cheaper) in Falu and Abreu. They are both better fielders with more versatility and better bats. And that doesn't even mention the everyday 2nd baseman at AAA that has been kept in Omaha for some reason all season. I mean the kid only has only batted .329 with an .891 OPS... a .410 OBP... 71 RBI's on top of that.

But we have Getz, and he's here to stay. BTW.. he makes $1 mil this year and will likely have a nice raise this offseason in arbitration.

Go Dayton!!!!

Doesn't always come through in the written word, but I'm sensing some sarcasm here.

Personally I think he should be hitting in the #2 spot.

My ideal lineup...

1-Escobar
2-Gordon
3-Moose
4-Butler
5-Hosmer
6-Myers
7-Perez
8-Cain
9-Getz
My ideal lineup has Getz playing for a Team not named the Royals.

Meanwhile, Donnie Joseph has a 2.57 ERA with 2 saves for Omaha and Broxton has tanked and is now on the shelf with an injury.

Checked the lineup, because surely we're hitting Cain leadoff or something a little different, maybe trying to get him a few more ABs (I don't think he'd be a good leadoff hitter, just throwing a name out there that might fit)...

Sees that Dyson led off....
