DAYTON MOORE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Once a rising star, Medlen gets another chance at stardom with Royals

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore looked like a happy man Thursday. Moore had just introduced his latest signing, right-hander Kris Medlen, and this was anything but your typical splashy, big-monied, Hot Stove free-agent signing. This was a signing that pumped the scout's blood in Moore -- a risky-but-potentially-high-reward acquisition that energizes true baseball...

Royals haven't made a flurry of moves because, says Moore, they don't have to

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- As the rest of the American League Central teams pummeled the transaction wire with trades and free-agent signings the past few weeks, Royals general manager Dayton Moore seemed unmoved by the whirlwind. Why? Because Moore had no reason to panic. His roster didn't need to be revamped. "I wasn't really surprised by it all," Moore said. "But the truth is, we have...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Royals and general manager Dayton Moore have been coveting Kendrys Morales for some time. They talked internally about him two years ago. They talked again about acquiring him last offseason. So there was little hesitation this offseason in pursuing Morales as a free-agent. And last week, the Royals and Morales agreed on a two-year deal that guarantees Morales...

Royals' Winter Meetings moves likely limit their roster flexibility

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Before he left last weekend for the Winter Meetings in San Diego, Royals general manager Dayton Moore forewarned that he wasn't likely going to make a big free-agent splash. And Moore pretty much held true to his word, coming away with one mid-level free-agent -- designated hitter Kendrys Morales on an affordable two-year, $17 million deal. The Royals haven't...

Kansas City Royals named Organization of the Year for 2014

Baseball America runs a publication that began in 1982 that recognized an MLB franchise as the Organization of the Year annually. For 2014, the Kansas City Royals have earned that honor but it is not for catapulting themselves into the 2014 Fall Classic. Ever since the Royals hired general manager Dayton Moore, his intent was to rebuild the farm system from within to help thrust...

FG on Fox: The Royals Coming Windfall

It was following a half-decent season in 2013 that Royals general manager Dayton Moore said he felt a little like he’d won the World Series. The remark didn’t go over very well locally or nationally, and Moore conceded later he could’ve chosen better words, but at the core of a poorly-worded sentence was a legitimate […]

Larry Lucchino Looks Back At Dayton Moore’s Boston Red Sox GM Candidacy

Dayton Moore is making out just fine as general manager of the Kansas City Royals. The Boston Red Sox certainly aren’t complaining about their GM, Ben Cherington, either. Moore forever will be linked to the Red Sox, though, as the organization interviewed him for its general manager job following the 2005 season, when former Boston GM Theo Epstein briefly stepped away. “He was...

Dayton Blows Up Team

  I don’t get it. Dayton Moore, try as he may, just cant seem to please everyone. On Monday, he traded Danny Valencia for an old backup catcher and a project AAA pitcher. I like the trade. Don’t love it…but its so minor, honestly who cares? Many feel that losing Danny Valencia means losing a good right handed hitter, which is true. There are always two sides to a coin however...

And the early season award for Most Valuable Performer for the Kansas City Royals goes to …

  Dayton Moore. Say what now? The scapegoat has become the stallion? After breaking down every player that has performed well in the first month of the season, I realized one communal factor: Dayton Moore. I think it is time to give some credit where it is due.
