So far, so good. I must be a certified masochist to keep watching these guys, but I was out at Arrowhead most games in the 70's and 80's as well. :shrug:

This franchise is a complete joke. And I feel vindicated that I can say that on the official web site of the Kansas City Royals.

That said, I will continue. David Glass has quickly become the most incompetent owner in sports. I am embarassed to be a fan of this pathetic franchise. If Dayton Moore had any brains, he'd run like ****. Considering KC has 17 victories on June 16, the Royals should feel fortunate that two radio stations still care enough to show up. Even if Rhonda and Bob were asking questions in a rude manner, a projected 500 losses in 5 seasons certainly warrants it. The fans of Kansas City -- the ones you haven't mercifully killed with mismanagement that'd make Enron blush -- want answers as to why their heart is broken every single night.

Ewing Kauffman is looking down on Kansas City right now and bawling like a baby at what has become of his team. Does that make you feel good, David Glass?

I wish for nothing more than for David Glass to just go away. If it means that 10 years from now, the Las Vegas Royals win the World Series, I will still cheer like ****. I just want to cheer.

Just imagine the tone and nature of the questions if this press conference was in say NEW YORK, or PHILLY, and not in KC.
glass, and this organization, with the exception of Mr. Moore, have a lot of s'plainin to do, and the half a-- job that has been happing is not acceptable to any self respecting Royals fan! The fact of the matter is that the David Glass was offering Dayton Moore a job that was still occupied by Allard Baird! That is news worthy! glass denied that he was shopping the GM job when it is obvious that he had been and decried the reports as rumors, when they were based in FACTS, as evident that MOORE is now our GM. The "unwritten rules of etiquette and professionalism" call for a news conference to answer such questions as those asked by the reporters in question, before the introduction of the new GM.
"Given several comments by” those on this blog and the general feeling of Royals Fans "and others who" watched /listened to "the press conference, the Royals" fans "believe the overall situation" was called for and the reaction by the ROYALS was over blown.
The way that the situation was handled by the Royals "offended many", and I salute the local media asking the questions that I, as a ROYALS fan, thought need to be asked, in the manner that reflect the attitude, and concern of the general public.

What most managers do in the situation we just had is send the pitching coach out to tell the pitcher not to worry about what just happened but just concentrate on winning the game. Did Bell do that? Not until 2 runners scored.

I guess we called Robinson up and sent Costa down. I guess Dayton Moore must have a personal vendetta against Aaron Guiel too. :)

And I guess the Red Sox claimed Kyle Snyder off waivers. So now when he jumps in and becomes an integral part of their pitching staff on the way to the playoffs we can all scream.

Nice communication skills, David and Emil.

If this was the ChiSox Guillen face would have turned beat-red from screaming when Bell and DeJesus returned the dugout. Bell appeared not to even raise his voice.

It was Brown's fault, as usual.
