Royals Letting Yordano Ventura Exceed Innings Limit

Courtesy of Fox Sports Innings limits have become the norm in baseball and for many it’s at the cost of great baseball. Sure you want to take care of young arms but treating all pitchers the same doesn’t make sense. No two bodies are the same and the Royals are trying to push their young co-ace Yordano Ventura past an innings limit many clubs stick to, in hopes of winning the...

Thank You, Royals

You might think this is a hard thing to write, but I find it pretty easy, actually. As Royals fans, we all should be thanking this franchise. Yes, they are just doing what they’re supposed to do by making it to the World Series, but I think we all know that it’s not that easy. Of course, part of that has been some luck—I don’t think even the most optimistic fan would argue...

(Updated) Mets Can Learn A Lesson From The Royals?

Winning now over winning later. Whether or not that’s the mentality of Kansas City Royals General Manager Dayton Moore or not, it clearly had a lot to do with the trade that sent top prospect Wil Myers, Patrick Leonard, Mike Montgomery and Jake Odorizzi to the Rays for pitchers James Shields and Wade Davis back in 2012. Myers hasn’t had a great start to his major league career...

Vision of Royals GM Dayton Moore comes to fruition

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Kansas City general manager Dayton Moore grew up as a Royals fan and was a teenager when he watched Game 7 of the 1985 World Series from a hillside outside the ballpark. He's now built a team going to the World Series. With the same patience in his young players that Kansas City management has shown in Moore during an eight-year rebuilding process, the...

Royals owner David Glass says Dayton Moore isn’t going anywhere

There is a certain segment of Braves people — some fans, some, it seems, in the front office — who seem to think that Dayton Moore would leave the Royals to take the GM job in Atlanta. Maybe this made more sense when Moore was on the hot seat before this year, but it makes little sense to me given what has happened in Kansas City lately. But if there was any doubt, owner David...

Moore's vision finally validated as Royals advance to World Series

  The Royals are going to the World Series, and it's time to acknowledge the notion isn't so implausible after all. Maybe general manager Dayton Moore knew what he was doing all along --€” when he traded Zack Greinke for Alcides Escobar and Lorenzo Cain, now the ALCS MVP; when he dealt top prospect Wil Myers for James Shields and Wade Davis (and was roundly criticized...

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...
