Results oriented business


Baseball is without question a results oriented business. The results that General Managers produce are transparent and obvious. There is no secret, undercover results here. We can see everything clearly.

Dayton Moore recently held a Q and A and of course it was a respectful conversation. The queries (Lee Warren, Omaha Royals Examiner) were toned and friendly and even answered the "easy" questions for Moore. 

It really doesn't seem like anyone can challenge GMDM, and point to his failures. The Royals are once again, expectedly, the worst team in the AL Central. My opinion is that you field a team and let them play and when the results are poor, you make immediate changes to improve the team. Moore has done very little this season to spark the team, and Hillman has put the Royals in poor position to win, far too often. 

The jury is still out on top prospects Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas and Aaron Crow, but Luke Hochevar, taken first overall, looks to be a slightly above average starter, and I am being generous with the slightly.  Luke will be 27 by seasons end, and we can all hope he matures quickly and becomes an above average pitcher. 

The Royals need change now - whether it's a manager shakeup, a lineup shakeup, a pitching shakeup or just a complete management redux. Any way you slice it, the Royals should be a more competitive club right now. They give more games away than any other team and seem to have no fight in them.
