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.

yeah, but that was before he discovered the gyroball...errr....hard knuckleball.

Brandon Wood is the perfect Royal.

That kid taught me once and for all that K/AB and K/BB rates are among the single most important indicators of future success for a young minor leaguer. Absolutely nothing in that kid's profile suggested he would be anything less than a good MLer and he had as good a chance as anyone to be a legitimate star.

And instead he is just hot garbage because he never learned the strike zone. Now he can't even hit for power anymore because he's just buried in between his own ears.

There are worse guys to have in your minor league system as organizational depth; afterall he does have some ability. But he's a great lesson for the prospect followers - very very few people can have Vladdy's approach at the plate. Trust them at your own peril.

I remember watching Brandon Wood when he was in Double A in Arkansas against Springfield. The only minor leaguer who was close to him was Alex Gordon. No doubt in mind he was going to be a stud.

Richard Brandon Wood could have gone through life as Dick Wood.

2003 – 18 year old 1st round draft pick. 2005 – 20 years old – playing SS in A+ - hit 43 HRs, .321 Avg in 130 games.
He looked like a future All Star.

Speaking of possible future All Stars, Rany has a good story on Royal’s prospects. - http://www.ranyontheroyals.com/

See the #7 prospect, Adalberto Mondesi
Rany has lots of positives to write about him…

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports hears that Royals GM Dayton Moore is "feeling the heat," in the sense that many want the team to use their prospect base to acquire veterans who can help them win now like the Blue Jays did with their recent blockbuster. Here's more from Rosenthal on Kansas City...

Even after acquiring Ervin Santana, the Royals can still fit a free agent like Jeremy Guthrie into their payroll on a back-loaded, multiyear contract.
The Mariners covet Billy Butler and would conceivably part with young, high-end pitching to acquire him. Butler is under contract through 2014 with a club option for 2015, though the Royals are unsure if they have enough offense to move him right now.
The Rays like top prospect Wil Myers, though the Royals are conflicted about moving him even for a pitcher like Jeremy Hellickson or Matt Moore.
The Astros could be another trade partner for Kansas City since the price to acquire Bud Norris or Lucas Harrell would be lower than it would be for Hellickson or Moore. The impact would be less too, however.
Moore is under contract through 2014 and does not appear to be in danger of losing his job, says Rosenthal.

I wouldn't.

Hellickson is very, very overrated, IMO. I'm not sure he outperforms his peripherals forever... he's very Jair Jurrjens-esque in that aspect.

Matt Moore, on the other hand... a thousand times, yes.

Easy there, tiger.

I know you need pitching, but Hellickson is not the kind of pitcher you trade Wil Myers for.

Moore - yes. And in fact, both teams would really have to consider that offer. Hellickson, hell no.

The Cards seem full in their OF, but if you're the Royals, would you be intrigued by Shelby Miller for Myers?
