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?

Wow! That's pretty awesome. Actually, they ain't seen nothing yet. Wait and see if this team is still in the race when we play Cleveland the week of 9-16. Those ratings (if we are in it) could be amazing.

If we lose it's on you. I hope you're ready to carry that with you forever.

Per MLB.com, last night's win also gave the Royals the lead in the all time series match up. It stands at 121-120.

It's 221-220.


Also Detroit picked up 25 games on us the past 8 years to pull within TWO games all time of us 295-293. (We are 5-3 vs them this year so far so we're up FOUR now but they look pretty decent lately so I'm sure we might have a tough matchup on our hands)


Hope to exit the year with a winning mark vs Detroit.

112.5 = 15 - 1
116 = 16 - 0


Seems pretty close in the fact that if the Royals win 90 games they will probably be right on the playoff boarder line... just as the Chiefs might be if we get to 10 - 6. Both records should get us in, but you never know for sure.
Well, it makes sense to me. But I've got a buzz going, so math isn't my strong suit at the moment.

This just goes to show how good the Royals of the seventies and eighties really were. As bad as the teams of the past twenty years have been, it is still taking other franchises all of that time to try and catch up.

Yordano went 6 innings, 4 hits, 1 BB and 9 Ks. Nice.

Somebody claimed Lohse, and a trade couldn't be made so Brewers pulled him back. No word on what team claimed him. I'm guessing he was too rich for Royal's blood, but who knows.
