Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore’s decision to non-tender 2B Chris Getz on December 1st is a hopeful sign for the upcoming season. Last year, patience with RF Jeff Francouer, SP Wade Davis, and the aforementioned Getz cost the Royals an unknown number of games.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Late last summer, as the Royals continued to fight to stay alive in the wildcard chase, a Royals official pulled me aside an hour or so before a home game was about to start.
