Good JoPo article

Can the League office really step in if an organization is run ineptly?

Unfortunately, all the great stuff JoPo says about this guy makes me really doubt he'd come here.

Not exactly, she was prevented from particpating in baseball operations, they could not take away her ownership. I believe she did sell them though, not really sure.

I exchanged e-mails with six baseball executives on Saturday, and while all asked not to be identified, all were wildly impressed with Moore. As one of them wrote: "There are certain people who have IT. I knew Dayton had IT two minutes after meeting him."
We will see if he has IT or not. If he takes then job with to Royals the he does not have IT.

You have to know your limitations to have IT and no one can overcome the limitations the Royals provide as a Baseball operation in the current MLB structure.

.

I don't know. If they let him run it then they can succeed.


Having a bunch of jackass millionaires who know nothing about the sport and trying to have control is moronic at best.


As far as having it here's the question.


How do you cement a legacy:

By taking a job nobody wants and turning it into a job everybody wants.

Glass is a fool. A very rich fool but still a fool. He thinks he can run an MLB franchise like a Wal-Mart. He'd be paying players the minimum wage if he could. He's more like Jack Steadman than Steadman was.

I would think that they would have to do something... If they want the MLB to seem like a more competitive league then they'd have to do something, because the glasses just dont have the baseball know-how to get anything done with this team. Id say we keep baird and have him run baseball operations for the team fully. I think its just the glasses getting into his business telling him what to do too often.

What, are you related to Baird? That's the most idiotic comment I've read regarding the Royals. Baird has done NOTHING but fail with personnel choices. The Royals consistently pick in the top 5 yet there have been no superstars drafted with the 1st round pick. His choice of free agents have been dreadful and the trades are an utter disgrace.

But I guess that's all Glass family's fault?

Actually yes. The glasses meddle in what baird does in so many ways. Did you not read the article? it only backs up my theory about what they do to baird. Im just saying, give him a chance, see what he can do with all power to himself. He knows baseball very well, and hes very passionate about the royals.

Oh by the way you can forget about even a Marge Schott like occurrence, she was suspended from participation in the management of the team because of her racist statement and a few other incident embarrasing to MLB not because of the way the club was performing on the field.

Dayton Moore is a must, the more I read the more I like about the guy and yes he must have all the control, if Glass cares about this team he will do it, if not, well the Royals will be where they are now for the next several years.

Actually, I think we've done pretty good in the draft. Our first round picks the last 5 or so years are Alex Gordon, Billy Butler, JP Howell, Chris Lubanski, Greinke. That's pretty solid, better than a lot of teams... the baseball draft is a total crapshoot. All 5 of those guys will be major league players I think. Gordon and Butler have a chance to be superstars.

And the other part was Posnanski's point... there has been speculation for years that Baird has been hamstrung with those "bad trades" you talk about. He has had trades vetoed, altered, etc. The only publicly known about one was that he had Joe Randa traded for prospects and Glass vetoed it because Randa's such a fan favorite. Rumor has it he had a good deal for Sweeney lined up and Glass axed it too, among others. There have been rumors for years that there are several moves Baird has been overruled on. Posnanski is the first big columnist to really come out and say that publicly though.
