David Glass gives Dayton Moore vote of confidence

Ed Zurga

Kiss of death? Or does David Glass trust the process?

David Glass continues to actually exist, according to the Star's Andy McCullough. While many Royals fans had figured that the former Wal-Mart executive and owner of the Royals ballclub was simply a bogeyman, a figment of our imagination designed to scare kids and taxpayers into building stadium renovations, it turns out David Glass is very much real, and is very much watching Royals baseball. Glass had a few interesting comments to make to McCullough before they jammed out to some Jason Isbell.


"I thought we’d be more consistent. At times, we’ve played extremely well. At times, we’ve played not so well. It’s the inconsistency that has surprised me. But we’re in a good position, I think, to make a run for the playoffs. If we have a good second half, there’s no reason why we can’t be in the playoffs."

Well we're a second half team of course!

He offered a vote of confidence for general manager Dayton Moore and manager Ned Yost. Glass declined to frame this season as a "make or break" campaign for his front office and the on-field leadership. He said he expects the 2015 version of the Royals to be better than the team this season.

Baby steps. Dayton never said The Process would take less than nine seasons.

How would you assess the work done by Moore and Yost?

"I think they’ve both done a good job. Dayton is one of the best baseball people I know, and I’ve been around a lot of them for the last 60 years. And I think Ned is a very good manager. I think that he continues to grow as a manager. He’s got the balance that you need, as far as being a players’ manager, and also holding them accountable. I think that he does that."

"The one thing I’ve learned about Ned and Dayton both is they are as obsessed with winning as I am. All three of us have a real problem when we lose."

Hahahahahahaha.

"Everybody always talks about making a deal to improve. I’m not sure what you can do. A lot of what you could do depends on what’s available. I like what we have. I think we can win with what we have. If there’s a way to improve by doing something, we certainly would consider that. Usually, what’s available is not what we need."

So, we're getting Jonny Gomes.

"I’m not so much interested in what the perception is about me. And anyone who knows me knows that I’m not just committed to winning. I’m obsessed with winning. There are times I’m sure when Dan and Dayton and Ned would just as soon I’d go find something else to do. "But what I want is for the fans to be really proud of this team."

Are you proud?

There's a lot more in the interview, so check it out.
