Here's to a 2012 that features:
1) Beast mode Eric Hosmer
2) Continued dominance from Alex Gordon
3) Great up-the-middle defense from the combo of Perez-Escobar-Cain
4) A full season of second-half 2011 Luke Hochevar
5) Danny Duffy harnessing his stuff
6) Jonathan Sanchez being more 2010 than 2011
7) Joakim Soria returning to form
8) Yuni Betancourt getting no more than 250 at-bats
9) Mike Moustakas keeping up what he started in September 2011
10) A great All-Star game
11) A Royals pennant chase
12) Mike Montgomery making an appearance on the scene
Excellent goals. Take #8 and make that 150-175, and you're gold.
