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?

2k usually has better graphics and presentation, but the show has better gameplay.

My buddy swears by the show but he isn't a gamer by any means and hasn't bought it for a few years.

Nice link.

The show is hands down the best VG representation of any sports gamer ever. 2013 is so polished, the ball physics and hit variety so good, I am fapping to it as I write this with my lefty.

By opening day a roster set will be out called OSFM in the roster vault. It will have all of the minor league players and the details the creators put into it is just on ridiculous levels.

yeah, I was just debating which one to get this morning. According to the internet, the show is better in nearly every conceivable way, enough to make some baseball fans switch to the PS3 if they don't already have one.

It's crazy how good those roster sets are. Sucks that they won't be out until opening day. Once you start a franchise with one roster you have to start all over with the newly released version. There are a couple decent rosters online now which have some of the top prospects for each team.

I always have played the 2k's but after playing the show a bit, I would give the nod to the show. I don't think you will be let down by either but the show is definitely better.

I don't mean to go full nerd on you guys, but this link has all the information you could ever want on the show:

http://www.operationsports.com/forums/mlb-show/

Yes the show has "live" rosters that get updated constantly with up to the minute moves, but even better is the roster set the operation sports community puts out that has every minor leaguers name, attributes, etc..

As a Royals fan there was a time when Moose & Hos & others were in the minors, you almost had to wait for the full minor rosters to have any enjoyment in franchise mode.

I hate the 2k games and have since first inception. Swing stick is awful, simulations are silly, and the player progressions make absolutely no sense at all.

Wish they made The Show for Xbox... would kill to get my holds on it.

You know on second thought I really shouldn't have posted that wormhole from CP to Operation Sports, it could be very bad for them. I can just see it now..

Operation sports regular: Who are some of the key free agents on the game....did they by chance leave Chipper Jones in the game?

Cp'er: **** Chipper Jones & **** you. Set yourself on fire and die in a Pioli laden aids tree.

There was only one year when I didn't care for The Show (11). Otherwise, it has no competitor.
