About the author

David Lesky

I never had a chance. I was born into a family who loved baseball and the Royals, so I accordingly love baseball and the Royals. I just so happen to love to write also, which makes writing about the Royals for this site something that makes me happy each and every day. When I first started blogging, a fairly well known baseball writer told me to only do it until I'm unhappy doing it, but I don't see that coming any time soon.

    Excellent discussion in the podcast on one of Dayton Moore’s shortcomings that he forces the market instead of waiting and letting it come to him.

    While I agree with Clint that Santana will not be as bad as Sanchez, I fear he will be as bad as 2012 Hochevar and will be gone by midseason, meaning we wasted at least $6M that (along with Hochevar’s $4.5M) could have been used toward a Bourne, Swisher or other solid offensive pickup. And could still have taken a flyer on signing Marcum or Jurrjens without hurting the team’s starting pitching.

    Bottom line, I agree that Moore has thrown down the gauntlet and this will be his make or break season. If the Royals are below 500 at the all star break, look for Glass to dump salary to make his profit for the year and Moore to not be invited back for 2014.

    The sad part is Moore is still putting way too much faith in Yost as part of his strategy to win. I do think based on the analysis I did a month ago that the pitching changes will get the Royals up to 13 more victories (based on the number of 1 run losses last year). But you are right, unless they get to 90 and at least playoff contention, this will be considered a disappointing season
