Or we can talk about the big picture. When are the Royals supposed to win? Moore was hired in 2006. He hasn’t, despite trying, sniffed .500. Think about baseball in 2006. The Rays were terrible, the Nats were terrible, Roger Clemens was still an Astro, and on and on. Think about how different your life and the world was in 2006. Youtube barely existed, Facebook was still for college kids, Spain was considered fairly bad at soccer. Kevin Durant was like negative five years old (though he was already 6’2).
So, I can listen to the case for Moore. But I’m amazed, that here in this year of supposed contention we were promised since… what? 2009, here in this year when KC baseball is getting ready to host the All-Star game, the Royals are still terrible, still making dumb mistakes, and still don’t have a legit All-Star other than a bullpen guy for their own All-Star game. Are our standards this low? Do people simply not care? Has Mizzou leaving for the SEC and all things Chiefs just ate up everyone’s time?
So congrats on drafting Eric Hosmer and Moose and spending a bunch of money in the draft. Apparently that gets you a decade of job security.
I’m amazed there simply is no discussion about the future of this front office. Does anyone care? I hate the Best Fans in Baseball meme (though I actually also love it) but what does this passivity make us? Ok, ok, I’m just crazy bitter internet anger guy. Fine. That doesn’t explain everyone else.
