Another big hire....

In a parallel, though less publicized announcement, the Royals hired Fred McGriff's mentor!

I think it is a great hire. It is pretty clear from watching Emil Brown especially that the team is direly in need of some fundamentals training.

A ray of hope

Dayton Moore has signed a 4+ year deal with the Royals to be GM.

Part of his contract calls for complete personnel decisions, which means Dan Glass will no longer be able to actively corrupt the Royals personnel.

Maybe he'll do the whole Royals organization a favor and pick up a new manager.

On the down side, Royals fans will no longer be able to actively use Allan Baird as a crutch.
