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.

3) Royals re-sign Guthrie
4) Royals sign Stephen Drew to a one-year, incentive-laden deal and play him at 2B. He adds some lefthanded pop to the lineup, upgrades the defense at 2B (despite the position switch), and gives the Royals a legitimate backup shortstop (allowing more rest of Escobar).
5) Jeff Fracouer is exiled.
6) Luke Hochevar is non-tendered

Rotation:

Sanchez (very good No. 2 with No. 1 stuff)
Haren (Not quite a No. 1 anymore, but has that potential and should be an excellent No. 2 if he can bounce back)
Guthrie
Chen (not great, but you can live with him here... )
Odorizzi

Lineup:
LF - Gordon
RF - Myers
1B - Hosmer (assuming he bounces back - if he doesn't, hit Gordon 3rd and Drew/Cain first)
DH - Butler
3B - Moustakas
C - Perez
2B - Drew
CF - Cain
SS - Escobar

That would be a deep and dangerous lineup. And you'd see plenty of RBI opportunities for Gordon because of the depth.
I think something along these lines could actually happen, and I'd be excited if it did.

I didn't see Moose's reaction after the play... I was too dumbfounded (like just about everyone in the stadium).

It wouldn't surprise me at all. For as much is made of Francoeur's leadership, I think Moustakas and Sal Perez are the true leaders of that team.

Last game of the year, time for Glass to make the trek up to collect his yearly earnings. He'll be on FSKC in the 3rd inning to tell us about it, and the radio in the 4th inning. Early enough to beat the traffic out of the parking lot.

Not sure what his initial reaction was. Just saw him sulking on the steps the next half inning plus. Frenchy after the play never came back to the dugout, just stared at it while he waited(forever) for someone to bring him his stuff. Even told my brother, I wonder if they quit on the game, because it took like more than a minute for anyone to come out of the dugout.

Too bad Glass has such low expectations or Leadheaded Ned would be gone after this year. I don't think he's the one to lead this young team. Damn disappointing season for the talent on hand compared to other years

Making excuses for not signing any starters. Free agency looks pretty thin
