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 really don't get royals fans on the other board flipping out over Gio. He's a good guy with a great family, but he was utterly horrid in 2012. Yeah it wasn't many at-bats, but he's also just not good enough to be patient and hope he figures it out, his defense is worse than Getz his bat was always supposed to carry him, and he hit quite a bit worse than Getz which is incredible considering that he was previously known as Chrisiesky Getzancourt. Maybe Gio will beat him out in spring training.

We have no good option at 2B. Gio doesn't have much of an upside, and Getz is probably capable of repeating his unimpressive sub-par 2012 where he's at least better than replacement value.

Still hoping Colon can develop into a league average 2B.

Yeah, Gio has been a pretty big disappointment. Not sure he's anything more than a AAAA player at this point, which stinks. I was a big fan.

What they really need is a rangy second baseman to help make the great up-the-middle-D pay off (and help the lacking-range Hosmer). Or, if you're going to play a guy who has merely average range (like Getz), get someone with a big stick.

Pretty far down the totem pole of priorities, though.

I just read a Mets forum thread about Wil Myers. Their fans think Myers straight up for RA Dickey OR Jon Niese (that's OR, not AND) is completely fair. ANd some think its an overpay. Good for a chuckle.

Billy's good and all...but he's no superstar and he's a DH. Can't imagine the market would be that huge for him.

From the numbers he picked he doesn't appear to be a current Royals fan.

Sadly, they just confirmed it was a quick-pick. So just a weird coincidence.
