Always good to see merit being rewarded:
The Royals have reached a tentative agreement with general manager Dayton Moore on a four-year contract extension that runs through 2014. The new deal could be announced as soon as tonight. The move confirms owner David Glass’ belief that Moore has the organization pointed in the right direction despite this season’s disappointing play.
Ask yourself: if you, in your own profession, made a mistake equivalent to trading for Yuniesky Betancourt, would you expect to be fired, or given five years of lucrative job security?
Ask yourself something else: how is the guy who runs the most successful corporation on the planet capable of making a judgment like “Moore has the organization pointed in the right direction”?
