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 am not a huge baseball fan so I don't know if the trade was good or not. But it seems to me this is what happens when you have a cheap owner who is unwilling to spend money.

Simply replacing Frenchy with Myers would have provided the same upside as adding Shields to the lineup.

He's spent enough money this off-season. The potential problem (*trying to provide a positive spin*) is how our GM allocated those funds. But this is new; we've never seen this before.

Shields should do very well in KC, I don't know why anybody would even try to argue differently. You can say this is a bad trade without having to denigrate Shields or his impressive abilities.

It's truly a debate about the lesser of two evils. It could well be that Dyson's defensive value and speed could make him a better option. Neither can hit; we know that.

Not digging into the numbers because I just washed my hands and don't want to smell like shit this early in the morning.

This is 100 Percent agree. Any guy that strikes out more than 200 batters in the American League is the kind of guy you want starting in a playoff game. "Big Game James" is the man. If we have a couple of winning seasons, we may even be able to resign the guy. This is a move we HAD to make.

His away splits the last 2 years were like 3.5 and 3.3 ERA. So recently it hasn't mattered.

I would rather have Dyson playing everyday than Frenchy. No doubt about it.
