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.

couldn't agree more.

+1.

my biggest complaint with davis on the radio, is that every hit ball, his voice acts like it's gonna be a hit: hit by billy butler AAaaaaaand ugh, gloved by the shortstop. welp, that's the ballgame......

i'm all for excitement. really. but every placed ball sounds the same in his voice.

Apparently the Royals and Alex Gordon are close to a ONE year extension on his contract. I don't love the sound of that but I guess their thinking must be they want to see him carry over his success last year before they ink him for big long term bucks. I didn't find a story but you can watch the report on the mlb hotstove video here.

http://kansascity.royals.mlb.com/index.jsp?c_id=kc

Also Jeff Francis signed a one year deal with the Reds. He's officially out of our hair.

They are just doing this to avoid arbitration. It won't stop them from getting a multi-year deal done.

Ah good point.

It might be too much to ask these days but I'd like to see Alex be one of those rare guys that spends his entire career with one team.

I'll throw Perez and Duffy in there because they both become dominators. Hell why not Crow and any guys who come up through our system for that matter.

I don't know about Mouse though. Moose is welcome however.

I don't. We'll really suck when our team is made up of a bunch of senior citizens.
