DAYTON MOORE RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Royals Real Problem with Re-Signing Alex Gordon

  Dayton Moore has been sitting pretty close to the top of the mountain for the last several months. With a World Series appearance and the ending of a brutal 29 year playoff drought, he has the Kansas City Royals sitting in a pretty enviable position. Manageable payroll coupled with a young nucleus of players who are complimented with serviceable veterans has the Royals...

The Royals Way: Speed, defense and a top-notch bullpen

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The first thing Dayton Moore makes clear is that he never set out to change how baseball clubs are built. He simply wanted to win games, something the Kansas City Royals had repeatedly failed to do for nearly three decades. Never once did Moore think he'd become the next Billy Beane, the Oakland Athletics' general manager whose use of advanced statistics revolutionized...

GMDM stays perfect, but at what cost?

  When it comes to arbitration hearings Dayton Moore must shutter like a KU fan come football season.  To date, as General Manager of the Kansas City Royals, Moore has signed every arbitration eligible player to a deal before reaching arbitration. What is arbitration?  This is an excellent question and one many baseball fans do not understand.  Arbitration is a right...

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...

Despite recent swoon, Moore says Royals won't become 'sellers' at trade deadline

CHICAGO -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore is flying to Chicago today, but don't necessarily read much into that: Moore said it was a pre-planned trip not associated with the team's recent swoon. Asked if manager Ned Yost's job was safe, Moore said by phone: "We're all accountable. But he can't play. I can't play. It comes down to performance on the field. "I really thought that...

Moore's reaction to Royals' surge: 'We haven't accomplished anything yet'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Yes, the Royals have won nine straight. Yes, they have gone into Detroit and pounded the mighty Tigers two straight. And yes, the Royals, when almost everyone in Kansas City counted them out a few weeks ago, now find themselves perched on top of the American League Central division by half a game. But Royals general manager Dayton Moore isn't about to get carried...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals general manager Dayton Moore hinted to George Brett a couple of weeks ago about the Hall of Famer potentially reprising his role as interim hitting coach for the struggling franchise.

Royals' superior defense was all part of Moore's plan

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- When Royals general manager Dayton Moore arrived in Kansas City in late May 2006, one of the first things that struck him about the Royals was their lack of athleticism. That lack of athleticism didn't align well with playing in spacious Kauffman Stadium. "We knew we couldn't survive defensively with the team that was on the field," Moore said. "It just wasn't...

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. What does the title “General Manager” mean exactly? From various places amongst this great wide internet, I was able...
