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.

Hosmer reminds me of Ken Griffey Jr in the way he is still enjoy it, I am enjoying it as well, there was a distinct point when Griffey just got tired of the business and media aspect and it showed when he was in public.

Its official, 2nd wild card this season. However, to make it happen they had to do some really weird things to fit it into this year's playoff schedule.

First, there's still only one open day between the last game and the play-in game. If we get a three-way tie for a division and/or some rain, then things could get crazy. (Ties for a wild card will be broken by formula if you have one team involved in both a tie for a division and a wild card, but division ties can only be broken on the field)

Second, for this year only, they are going to the old hated 2-3 format for the best of 5 division series. (The lower-seeded team gets to host the first 2 games) They will go back to the modern 2-2-1 format next year but they had to do it this way in 2012 because, again, travel. The #1 and #2 seeds in both leagues are going to be pissed this year.

Finally, for this year only, instead of the usual practice of having AL start one day then NL start the next day, they will have the 2/3 series in both leagues start first, because of travel.

Agreed. I miss watching Junior play, my favorite athlete of all time...

First spring training game starts in a half hour against the Rangers, on 610 AM, XM 178, and MLB.com. I don't think spring training games really merit a GDT, but I'll put up brief updates here during the game.

Gordon LF
Giavotella 2B
Hosmer 1B
Butler DH
Moustakas 3B
Francoeur RF
Perez C
Cain CF
Escobar SS

Mendoza P

O'Sullivan, Mazzaro, Adcock, Hottovy, Herrera and Verdugo are scheduled to pitch, but they might not all appear.

Rangers will start Colby Lewis.

I believe the MLB.com feed is free for ST games.

Out of curiosity, anyone remember how many games 610AM broadcast last year during ST? I want to say 1 or 2. Seems like I heard they are set to do 7 or 8 this year

Not sure, I locked up one of those lifetime XM memberships on my portable XM radio years ago while it was still available.

The baseball Gods have just informed me that the fate of our season will be determined by Gordon's first spring training AB today.

If Gordon gets an extra-base hit, the Royals will have at least the 2nd-best record in the entire AL.

If he gets a base hit, we'll win the AL Central.

If he walks, we'll be assured of at least a wild card but we'll have a close division race which we may or may not win.

If he is out but at least puts the ball in play, we will finish 2nd in the division but be in a close wild card race which we may or may not win.

If he strikes out, we're screwed and will be lucky to finish .500.
