I've got no problem with Moore....actually I like him.

With that said, 3rd place is as high as my expectations go this year. :,-(



3rd place!? If I'm a Royals fan, I'm throwing a parade for 3rd. Which two teams are they better than?

It seems there is ALWAYS speculation about the Royals at the start of every season.

They're going to turn in the same garbage to mediocre performance they do every year.

Could the Royals win the AL Central?

No, no they could not. Thread over.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I said 3rd is as high as I could expect....not saying they will finish third. It will have more to do with the other teams falling on their face than the Royals winning anything more than 75-78 games.....see the Tigers last year.


The thing with the Royals is all about where they came from....nobody realizes what kind of shape our whole organization was in the last decade plus...

Moore came in and pretty much doubled the number of scouts we have and reworked our whole minor league system....this is the key to everything right now. There is no signings we can do that will guarantee us consistant high finishes so the Jacobs/Guillen types are just here as stop gaps and proven bats to help us stay afloat until the Moustakas, Hosmer, Melville, etc of the world show up. This will take longer than 3 years to turn around. I couldn't be more excited about where the Royals organization is headed with Moore at the top. 90% of the focus has been on the minor leauges and getting that to respectability or better than respectablility becaue if we plan to win on any kind of consistant basis it will all start with our minor leagues. I think we showed that importance last year when we spent more than anyone in the draft last year and argueable had the BEST draft out of any organization last year. People just don't truely realize how bad of an organization we were before Moore got here and the major league team was only a small part of the problem. I can't wait to see what Moore does with a couple more years and a couple more drafts under his belt.

I agree, the minors are going to be the mlb soona nd the Royals look good in that area
