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.

Yep.

Dayton is tired of taking the rap for this freakshow. Hard to field a team when your REAL payroll is under $40M.

Please tell me there is an actual quote from either DM or glass saying that they plan to spend the money they saved when payroll was lowered the last few years.

Was I dreaming that? I know that no one believed it for a second, but glass would be an even bigger moron/@ssh0le than I thought if he pretty much admits he was lying 1 or 2 years later.

If you hear 'shoulder', run away screaming. Shoulder injuries are the debil. If you're lucky, you don't need to have surgery and the rest/rehab model buys you a couple more years (before whatever mechanics you had that caused the problem eventually blow it out entirely). Most guys can't get by with the rest/rehab, they have to have 'cleanup' surgery and they come back throwing 3/4 mph less than they were when they left.

The very rare occurrence comes back completely healthy (Chris Carpenter is the most notable recent example I can come up with) but for the most part, a shoulder diagnosis is about a worst case scenario.

At least the Royals don't appear to have anything that bad floating around.
it was a jab at ****ection

It was in a interview earlier this year at the end of the season that he said they would get pitching however they needed to. I am not sure if that is what you are referring to though.

Go kill yourself, Glass. If you don't want to own a major league team, sell it someone who does, you unspeakable asshole.
I agree, the Glassholes can go **** themselves.

Through my work, and I won't say how, I've had the opportunity to meet the Glass' over the past several months and on several different occasions. You have no idea how hard it is to be in the same room with these gentlemen and not speak your true feelings. Or jump across the conference table.
