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.

The Royals will at least be pretty fun to watch in 2013. We actually have a pretty good looking rotation now.

Losing Myers sucks, and we overpaid.. That's the price of pitching I guess..

OK, so you trade for Shields and a young, controllable pitcher from Tampa. And the guy you ask for back is Wade flipping Davis? Not Alex Cobb. Not Chris Archer.

And you give up flipping Odorizzi, Patrick Leonard and Mike Montgomery in return. Just ****ing great.
That's the strangest part of the whole damn thing.

The Rays were actually a great fit for the Royals. They had a bunch of young pitchers with plenty of upside and years of control. Guys like Cobb and Archer could contribute immediately and be around for a long time. Or if you prefer upside, how do you not get Guerreri?

This just makes no sense on any level, regardless of what you're looking for.

Holy ****ing balls. How in the **** does someone who has been around baseball as long as Moore has make this trade? Goddammit. I feel like a hopeless ant under the magnifying glass (which is DM) and is held by the tyrant child (Glass).

And so what's the plan when Frenchy blows chunks into May and June ... just trot him out there for 140-150 games hoping he'll regain the "magic"? Have a negative-WAR RF suck most of the value out of Shields in your "go for it" year?

To all the Silver lining guys: What you are missing is that while this is a win now mode, you essentially didn't get any better.

Myers would have been so much of an upgrade in RF, that he would have offset some of that pitching and this is such a short sided trade.


Like DJ said, this is a trade a team makes that won the WC and got knocked out in the first round last year.

Not the Royals.

Of course he does. He believes that all prospects are created equal, which is DM-level stupid.
