Moore admits to only "frustration" about all of this but did have strong words about criticism of the team not ordering an MRI when Duffy missed a start a few weeks ago because of elbow tightness. "That’s idiotic," he says. "That’s really, really looking at things with a critical spirit."

When Good GMs Go Bad

This is an old article by Jonah Keri on GM's. I was trying to figure out why front loading a contract is such a no no in the MLB. The responses i got (no real heavy digging) were this article and a quip of "you win and its no problem, you lose and get fired and it's someone elses problem. This article could serve as a warning for GMDM on the dangers of an Edwin Jackson.

Royals Last 10 years, a graphgasm

Earlier this week, Bill Petti at Beyond the Boxscore posted an interactive chart that contained all kinds of goodies from MLB over the last 10 years.  The post focused on the Rays and Athletics but...

On Meeting Dayton Moore

Another shameless self-share, in case you missed it on Twitter and whatnot. In short - I met GMDM. It didn't go well. I used words in a blog post to kick myself.

Gameday Preview says Gordon's "likely" to start at 3rd today

I agree that Alex is likely to play, but does anyone feel that Hillman will coddle him in the upcoming weeks? I just have this suspicion that we'll see him missing some starts or something, like a Bloomquist at 2b and Callaspo at 3rd with Gordon on the bench versus lefties. I'll pull my hair out. On the bright side, out of the group of players performing over their heads right now, Callaspo's not one of them, and his play doesn't seem likely to threaten Gordon for a spot at 3rd. I'd hope that's a moot point with Getz on the DL, but as long as Bloomy roams the mlb clubhouse, we'll have room for uncertainty. That being said, what does everything think Alex is going to do in his next 5 games?

"I think it's important that we build around Zack Greinke and Joakim and Billy Butler, Gordon, [pitcher Luke] Hochevar, Callaspo. That's not to say that if we get some type of offer on any of our players, we wouldn't have to look at it and be open-minded," Moore said.

GMDM in the Kaegel article on the KCRoyals.com site this morning. Unless he recycled the quote and didn't really talk to GMDM...if we are building around Callaspo, where does Getz fit?

GMDM to Chat With Fans

What will he say? What will he not say? Will he talk down to the fans as if they are 3rd graders? Will he continue to "not understand" stats? Will any Royals Review bloggers get their questions answered? Tune in on Sept 8th to find out.

Lack of Offense in the Minors

The Royals' strength, obviously, is pitching. It is evident in the major leagues, and is evident in the Top 10 Prospect lists that are strewn around the internets. GMDM's strong point, without...
