2012 Kansas City Royals Repository Thread

2012 Slogan: Our Time

A better, more accurate 2012 Slogan: It is Finally Next Year
(from Great Expectations)

An alternative slogan if you don't like that one: Someone has to win this crappy division
(from alnorth)

With the beginning of a new year, it is time for the 2012 version of the Royals Repository Thread. We've got Hosmer, we've got a 2011-dominating Gordon, we've got Moose, we've got hopefully a killer bullpen, we've got a stereotypical slow slugging DH, we've got easily one of the best defensive shortstops in the AL, we've got a promising catcher in Salvador Perez. Hell, we've got offense and promising prospects galore.

We do not have starting pitching.

Oh yeah, we've also got this:



Get ready for, (as of January 2012 anyway), one of the most confusing puzzles of a baseball season in recent Royals history. Will they suck? Maybe, I don't know. Will we be given a year of 0.500 baseball? Possibly, I don't know. Will they win the division and go to the playoffs for the first time in 27 years? For the first time in a long time, it could happen, I don't know. 92 losses, 92 wins, or anything in between would not surprise a lot of us.

Everything goes here except Gameday threads and really big news. If a giant story breaks, the Royals achieve some awesome milestone, or we sign/lose a highly significant player/coach/mascot/whatever, then it might also deserve its own thread. This being Chiefs Planet, please do not clutter the board with new threads about trivial Royals news or you will only annoy those who come here for just Chiefs football. If you aren't sure and its not a Gameday thread, it goes here.

What sort of stuff often goes here? SPchief explained it well, so I'll just copy that:

Quote:
If you locate something of interest.. ANYTHING.. deals on apparel, best ways in/out of the stadium, giveaways, great stories from this season or from seasons gone by, rumors, trades, anything.... feel free to post it here.

I am shocked at this deal. Shocked. Seattle had the makings of a starting staff in that park to really compete for something over the next several years. Supplement the offense w/o dealing your young aces and away you go. Instead you trade for an unproven bat with no position, and it's a Yankee prospect. They're notoriously overvalued.

Amazing thing is not two years ago Jack Z was so highly thought of in baseball circles. Looked like Seattle was really on the rise. Certainly more than enough Royals fans would've shipped Dayton out for the guy, he was worshiped over on Royals Corner. Now I don't know what the heck he's doing. He just broke up what could've been a championship rotation and worst of all, he bailed out the Yankees. Not to mention trading a young pitcher who's actually proven something for a hitter who hasn't, that's absurd in today's market. Maybe he knows something we don't.

Royals sign 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff to a minor league deal. Sounds like he'll have a legit shot to be the backup 1B/3B.

This.

Montero is probably going to be a plus hitter, but pitchers with multiple Cy Young, ace potential like Pineda are worth more than what they got for him.

No doubt about that.

Jack Z's star has fallen tremendously. What a disaster he has been over the past few years.

Last year, he looked like the 3B version of Betancourt, it was the worst year of his career. Before that, he hit just a little better, but had much better defensive years, no idea what happened to his glove last year.

If last year was a fluke and 2008-2010 is closer to what we could expect, then he's a decent backup for Moose, and its encouraging to see that DM wanted a different answer for the nightmare scenario of Moose getting hurt.

Barring injury, hopefully this guy and Yuni do not start more often than once every 10 games. If that is their roles, great.

edit: for some reason he's got an opt out provision if he's not in the majors by May 1. I seriously doubt he'll opt out, but I guess he wanted some faint hope to sign with someone else if he didn't make the team, blew up in AAA, and we had no spot for him.

In other news, (Yankees got Kuroda too) this quote from another board pretty much says it all.

Quote:
Congratulations to the New York Yankees for managing to solve their rotation issues in less time than it takes House to diagnose a patient
The Mariners are F'ing stupid.

I just saw that. These things are always a bit cheesy, but I like that one. Hopefully the team delivers.

Not sure what I think, but its definitely better than the hilariously low-expectation "major league moments".

Alternatively, if the Royals are losing so bad that you need a drink:
