2013 Kansas City Royals Repository Thread

Proposed 2013 Slogan: Tigers: They're what's for dinner
Actual 2013 Slogan: Come to Play
A better, more accurate, or alternative slogan: All in, no panic, we promise.

Dayton Moore has pushed all his chips in and is riding on King/Jack suited, hoping it comes together, he gets some good luck, and he hits the nuts by the river card. There's potential, oh yes, there's potential. There's also risk.

At the midway point, Dayton is left counting on the river card. The flop and turn didn't help him, and he's looking at the Tigers holding a pair of Queens and the Indians holding a pair of 9s. His 2013 plan hasn't failed - yet - but the odds are not in his favor.

Burning questions updates below.

Burning Questions for 2013:

1) Will the improve rotation be improved enough? Does James Shields pitch like a fringe No. 1 away from Tampa Bay? Does Ervin Santana pitch to his highest upside in his walk year? Can Jeremy Guthrie build on his strong performance as a Royal in 2012? Can Wade Davis bring his new mentality- and velocity - back to the rotation?

Midseason check-in: Yes, the rotation is certainly improved enough. Shields has pitched like a fringe No. 1 and Santana is having his best season. Guthrie has horrible peripherals but has continued to perform well at his home park and eat innings on the road. Davis brought neither his kick-ass mentality or improved velocity back to the rotation and is in Luke Hochevar/Hiram Davies territory.

2) When will Luke Hochevar be shown the door?
Midseason check-in: It appears, never, at this point. Hochevar has been solid in non-leverage situations, though pretty much every time he has been used with men on base in an inning, it has been a disaster.

3) Does Hosmer bounce back?
Midseason check-in: It took some time, but Hosmer's performance from June 1 on is probably the most encouraging thing about the 2013 season so far.
4) Can Moustakas hit for a whole season like he did in the first half of 2012?
Midseason check-in: Nope. Moustakas was god-awful, then great for about 3 weeks, then god-awful again. He has been better since he started working with Brett and Grafol but still has a long way to go.
5) Who regresses?
Midseason check-in: Welp, Alicides Escobar is not a surprising name here (though Yost's stubborn insistence on hitting him second is ridiculous). Billy Butler is a surprise. He isn't having a terrible year - still contributing a lot to the offense - but he's not hitting for the average or power he has displayed over the past several years.
6) Who plays 2B?
Midseason check-in: A whole bunch of people, and not that great. Gio is at least getting a shot, though he once again is not doing much with it.
7) Can Jeff Francoeur be at least replacement level, rather than epic horrible level?
Midseason check-in: Hahahahahahahahahahaha
8) Will Dayton Moore survive to see 2014?
Midseason check-in: Outlook uncertain. Probably still around, unless the team completely tanks in the second half and he does something foolish. My guess - he sacrifices Ned Yost this offseason and gets one more shot with a new manager in 2014.
9) Will Danny Duffy come back healthy? And if he does, is he the same, better or worse?
Midseason check-in: Yes. Velocity looks the same, and it looks likely he is the same guy as before.
10) And the big one: Has KC added enough to run down the big-money Detroit Tigers?
Midseason check-in: Doesn't look like it, does it?

Just saw this on Royals Corner. Hosmer and Moose are leading the Royals in OPS for July at .847 and .831 respectively. I'm assuming some still wish to send them to AAA?

Fangraphs has some great data on what the Royals are doing.

Offense: #26 in weighted runs created. 13% below MLB average.
Pitching: #10 in fielding independent pitching (ERA).
Defense: #1 in defensive runs saved. #3 in outfield arm efficiency. #5 in double play runs saved. #1 in range. #1 in ultimate zone rating. #1 in ultimate zone rating per 150 games. (Highest MLB rating in past 5 years)



I think it's pretty clear why we have a winning record this year.

To be fair, Moose was going on almost a full year straight of awful hitting going back to last season. I'm not sure he's out of the woods, but I'm excited by his resurgence. Always seemed like a guy who's easy to root for.

Do you think there's something to the fact that of the six oldest roster members, four are starting pitchers? Perhaps some quiet (save for Shields) leadership taking place on the bump?

PS: I simply can't believe T Collins is only 23.

Being an optimist, maybe the Royals planned this all along. Limit Tejada's playing time in the first have so he'll be fresh in the 2nd. Could have the same opinion about Chen. The dude is pitching great. But if Tejada does start to wear down, Colon is have a good run at Omaha.

"Second baseman Christian Colon and first baseman Ben Broussard both extended hitting streaks as the Storm Chasers won 4-2 at Tacoma.
Colon was two for five and is batting .385 (15 for 39) with three home runs in a 10-game hitting streak."

The only problem is Colon is not on the 40 man roster.

The Royals are 4.5 back of the wildcard with 57 games to go.

The Royals have played 65% of their schedule. In football terms, the first quarter of the 10th game has just ended. In football terms, the Royals are basically only a half game back of the last wildcard spot. There is still plenty of baseball left to play.
