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.

Reading a bit more, it looks like he was drafted (and didn't sign) 3 times in the MLB draft before going to the Chiefs, which brings up the old baseball/football dilemma. If you aren't sure that you'll make it, you are better off playing football, but if you are going to make it in either league, you should probably play baseball.
I always thought his gap would make him aerodynamic

Reason #17 why I'm more optimistic about the Royals than the Chiefs:

I have more faith and confidence in Dayton Moore than I do in Scott Pioli

No one is going to argue this; there are serious concerns about his other qualities, but perhaps he's so good at developing a farm system that the rest doesn't really matter...

This is our hope.

He is definitely not a perfect frankenstein's monster, Robocop, type of GM where the perfect qualities of every GM trait are in one man, but I can confidently say that he's better than average, maybe even in the top 1/3 of MLB GM's. Hell, I'll take that. I disagree with some things he thinks and does, and not every move works out, but he's been great so far.

Starters are pretty much done through 5 innings against SF, Royals currently down 2-1, hitting is thin today because the Royals were batting against Lincecum for 4 innings.

Hochevar 3IP 2R 2ER 0BB 2K 1HR
Odorizzi 2IP 0R 0ER 2BB 2K

Dyson 1/2
Escobar 0/2
Hosmer 0/1, 1BB, 1K
Gordon 0/2, 1K
Moustakas 0/1, 1K
Francoeur, 0/2
Perez 0/2, 1K
Pena 0/1, 1BB
Getz 0/1

I know it's hard to really take anything away from spring training, but have we learned anything about this year's Royals? How is the pitching looking? Progression of Cain, Gio, et. al.? Anything going particularly well or anything disappointing? Thanks in advance.
