The 2008 offseason explained in relation to Jason Kendall


It's been a while since we've been able to unearth anything groundbreaking from the Royals.  After the Yuni-Gate transcript was released, many of our contacts dried up (or we been busy, and haven't had a chance to make something up).

In any event, we've finally discovered an internal document that was presented to David Glass as a part of the 2008 end of the year review.  This lead to the massive amount of money spent on players like Mike Jacobs, Kyle Farnsworth, Juan Cruz and Willie Bloomquist in the offseason leading up to 2009.

As part of the year-end review, we're told that Dayton Moore holds a meeting with David Glass and all of the other high level executives within the company.  We've learned that the following slide was a huge success at the meeting, which directly lead to the increased budget (and subsequent spectacular failure) in 2009.

We're told the slide was presented again this offseason, but that it didn't go over nearly as well.  Which is why we're now considering offering Scott Podsednik and 2 years to Jason Kendall.
