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'm fine with Seitzer getting the axe. But hitting instructors get all the credit, and all the failure. 95% of everything a hitter does is on the player, not the hitting instructor. You can't make guys who can't hit into great hitters, you can't get guys that swing at everything to become Alex Gordon. It just doesn't happen. Unfortunately for him, the demise of Hosmer sealed his fate.

The Seitzer podcast is up. Some interesting takeaways:

Yost came to him a few months ago and said he wanted guys pulling the ball more. Seitz said it was the first time Yost had ever talked to him about hitting approach.

Dayton's son apparently complained to Seitz that he wasn't getting many opportunities to drive in runs because Billy is a base to base guy and can't score on a double.

Seitzer is probably relieved that he can now go work for a winning team somewhere.

It sounds like the guys who listened to Seitz and bought in improved and the guys who just wanted to do their own thing struggled.

Ironic stat, the last player to draw a 100 walks in a season for KC is Kevin Seitzer.

****ing Yost needs to get the **** out of Kansas City. Pull the ball more? How did that work for ****ing Frenchy, Hosmer, Moose, Gordon, Escobar and Dyson. The dudes that adapted and started going the other way i.e. Gordon, Escobar and at times Hosmer and Dyson did their best hitting when going with pitches. When all the dudes listed above tried to only pull the ball, they didn't do shit. Leadhead Ned needs to ****ing go

Interestingly, Frenchy batted 116 times with a man on first this year (don't know how many times it was Butler). He hit 5 doubles.

He hit 49 times with men on first and second. One double.

Eleven times with 1st and 3rd. Zero doubles. Ten times with the bases loaded. Zero doubles.

ONLY 9 OF HIS 26 DOUBLES CAME WITH MEN ON BASE.

Proof positive that Frenchy is a selfish player, and his good "clubhouse presence" is as legitimate as Scott Pioli's reputation in '08.

Also, expect zero major FA signings. Pretty obvious this is the case when Glass noted the "dearth of FA pitching." Read: FAs cost money, and I don't like to spend this.

yep. You know it's coming. Hoch will be in the rotation again next year too.

These fools won't get another dime of my money until they actually make the playoffs.

Of course he will. Yost was praising Hoch's potential again today during the presser.

Idiots. The lot of them.

So who's accountable for the "Our Time" bullshit. Seitzer must have come up with that one. What a ****ing embarassment. So if Leadhead Ned wins 2 more games again next year does he get a lifetime contract? Shit his stupid ass managing probably cost the team close to 10 wins this year
