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 don't have a link and didn't hear the interview, but a few minutes ago Danny Parkins on 610 reported that Dayton Moore stated Sal Perez could be out 14 weeks.

Basically, Soria had a shitty month early, dumped the cutter he had picked up over the offseason because it was not effective, and pitched the rest of the season at his career averages.

The cutter experiment failed horrendously, but at least he dumped it early.
Actually if you look at his month by month splits, June and the 5 IP in September were the only months he pitched to his career averages. He racked up some saves in July but still had a 3.86 ERA (after a crap last year his career ERA is only 2.4)

That is an extremely high sandbagged number. DM said yesterday that in a best-case scenario he could be ready in 4 weeks, but he'll more than likely be out 6-8 weeks.

14 months is a long, long time for a meniscus tear. If it ends up being that long there is something else wrong in that knee.

Yeah, that's a very long time. You could heal two ACL's in that time.

had a double meniscii tear(s) repaired in october.

while the pain of the injury is well gone, pain from the surgery is still very noticeable to me.

granted i'm no athlete, and there's cartilage damage for me. but most of the advice that i was given said it should not be a big deal. i'm guessin' 6-7 weeks before his minor league/injury stint (which i believe is a given nowadays).

Doctors confirmed Sal needs 12-14 weeks. If thats just from the meniscus, he must have torn the hell out of it.
