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.

The Royals need to hit right now in a big way. The Chiefs are going through a PR nightmare and are down. The Cardinals, even though they won the World Series, just lost the best and most popular player in Pujols. The time is ripe for the Royals to win over the hearts of alot of Missouri sports fans.

Yeah, I'm really kind of shocked that he even said anything. If we can lock up Hosmer & Moose long-term, I'll be really really really happy. I don't think Gio, Escobar, Cain, etc. will cost a lot whenever it comes to that and I expect them to be signed unless they don't pan out or want the moon. Signing Hos & Moose, on the other hand, would at least show me that the team is interested in winning on some level, which would be a gigantic step up from what I've seen my whole life.

Thing is, I used to see Royals stuff all over campus at K-State early in the spring when I was there (and friends at KU, MU, WSU, etc. said the same), but by the time the fall came around, no one was wearing it because the team was 25 games out of first. I feel like there's a bunch of Royals fans who are just waiting for the team to win to show their support.

But yeah, big season for more reasons than one.

It would be especially nice for them to be competitive this season since they have the All-Star Game.

It would be sweet to see Hos in the HR derby.

Despite being a hated Yankees fan, I have always rooted for the Royals do to the KC connection. On top of that I always really liked the look of the K, especially when I was next to it at Arrowhead.

That season a few years ago when you guys had the great start, I felt like a lot of the country was rooting for you. The Royals being good, just for the league in general, would be fun. I always feel like a young team, especially one without recent success, breathes life into the league.

Its such a shame. If baseball had a fair stystem for all teams, it would be such a blast to watch. As much love as the NFL gets, it seems on average baseball has a much more unpredictable playoffs year after year than the NFL(although this year the NFL has had such). On that subject, its also a shame that with the weather and long season that such a small amount of teams make it in.

With your division combined by the effort your team seems to be making and your talent, you guys seem to be well timed to make a run. Hell, even the East has teams like BOS and NY that have their own issues. TOR seems like they will be tougher, but its not like playing the East is going to be the murder it has been in other years. If you get into the playoffs, who knows what happens.

I think you're underestimating what it could take to keep Escobar. He is the best defensive SS in the game. If he can establish himself as a .260 hitter, he is going to have a ton of money thrown his way.

Word around St. Joseph is Butler could still stand to lose about 20 pounds. I guess when you are Healthy and productive it doesn't really matter. Rather him by fat and all the field instead of ripped but on the bench. *Gives a dirty look to Tebow Mike Sweeney*

Nice to have some Royals conversations back on the airwaves.

Mike MacFarlane on with Petro today talking Royals. Claims Crow has changed his body, gotten bigger, stronger. He expects him to remain at the back end of the bullpen.

Big "if," isn't it? But yeah, you're right.

I'm just excited that we're even thinking about extensions for Moose & Hos this early.

They get don't hang onto Escobar I am done with this team. Arguably the best defensive SS in the league. You don't let that kind of player go.

A lot can change in the next four years.

Escobar could blossom into a .270 (And basically be Elvis Andrus, and a prime extension candidate - btw, this is what I think is probably going to happen).

Or he could continue to be a .250 hitter and they could have a good option behind him in the system by the time his team control expires.

High-quality SS prospect out of ASU in this coming draft. If he's there, he would be worth the selection in case Escobar regresses.

Victor Martinez is out for the entire 2012 season. This might make catching the Tigers just a little easier.
