Playoff talk has subsided in these parts, thanks to the Royals’ recent seven-game losing streak. And the adjusted goal for the Royals appears to be finishing over .500 for the first time in 10 years.
But Royals general manager Dayton Moore still believes a corner has been turned, though he knows disappointed fans aren’t in the mood for consolation prizes.
“I really feel that based on how we decided to build this team, we’re ahead of schedule,” Moore told FOXSportsKansasCity.com. “You know, every baseball team that is constructed gets exposed. We know we have probably seen that, and certainly realize that we have things we need to improve upon.
“But I am very encouraged with the group of players we have. There’s not one player on this current roster that is on the downside of his career. They all have upside….
Will Moore have the financial resources to keep improving the roster?
“I don’t think it’s going to be about the money,” he said. “It’s going to be about the players. We’re just going to build a championship team with the resources we have.
See, trading the best minor league hitter in the game to finish below .500 was part of the plan all along. And now they’re ahead of schedule!
