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?

I don't expect him to be a star, and drafting him No. 4 overall just looks bad at this point. But I think he can give you more at 2B than Getz defensively (Better arm, more range) and if he can OPS .750, he can be a solid 7/8/9 hitter and positive contributor.
I would be happy if he turned into a poor man's Placido Polanco.

This would be ideal. Getz is such an ironic player. The perception is that his bat is shit, which it pretty much is, and that his defense is solid, which it's not, but the numbers show the opposite.

He's a little over replacement level at the plate (stress on "a little") and slightly below replacement level in the field.

Per Kansas City Royals on facebook

The Royals agree to terms with RHPs Aaron Crow, Louis Coleman, Luis Mendoza & Guillermo Moscoso & LHP Francisley Bueno on 1-year deals for 2013. With today's agreements, everyone on 40-man roster is signed for 2013.

I love Sal. I love Moose. I love Alex. I love Billy. Escobar. The vet presence of Tejada. Holland as closer. Good middle relief. There's a lot to love about this club.

Will it mean playoffs? I don't know. There are several clubs to jump. But finally we're putting together a real major league team. The efforts have been and are being made.

I'm so excited for baseball. Go Royals.
Hosmer's new what approach? Sorry if it's been covered, I've been in mourning over Alex Smith all week.

I'm excited, too. Planning on buying a Sal Perez jersey this year. Any suggestions as to where I can get an authentic for the cheapest (not including the foreign knockoffs)? Checked the Royals site, they've got Hos, Moose, Butler & Gordo but no Salvy. I'm assuming if it's not on the site, they won't have it in the team store at The K....

See, instead of tilting his head slightly and closing his eyes before slowly leaning in (like he used to do), he now closes the distance as quickly as possible with his eyes WIDE OPEN. To see the ball better.

I'm trying to not get my hopes up this year as I know beating out the Tigers will be a major feat in itself but I'm going to really just try to enjoy this team. I think the pieces are there for a very solid ball club.
