DAYTON MOORE TALKS
Royals GM Dayton Moore talked Monday about the state of the team. We learned more about his view of where the team stands and what we can expect in the future.
Moore is high on the maturity level of Bobby Witt Jr. and Nick Pratto and he expects to be transitioning one or both of them to the major league team next season. Now that’s not to say they won’t appear with the big league club this season. They will be promoted when the organization feels they are ready. But it appears that Moore expects one or both to be in the majors next year, if not sooner.
Dayton Moore is disappointed with the team’s record. That’s good. He understands how they got to where they are but said that there are no excuses. When fans hear what they think are excuses from Dayton Moore, I think he thinks he’s explaining the situation and what has happened. He doesn’t excuse the problems the club is having.

College student-athletes can now earn money for their name, image, and likeness (NIL). However, high school students cannot in most (all?) cases. And therein lies today’s lesson of unintended consequences and the beauty of capitalism.
Quinn Ewers is a high school quarterback in Texas. Well, he was a high school quarterback in Texas. He announced Monday that he is skipping his senior season of high school to begin his college career at Ohio State. Did you get that? He is skipping his senior season of HIGH SCHOOL so he can take advantage of NIL money at Ohio State.
Oh, but that’s not what we intended are the cries of the people who thought NIL was a terrific idea. Of course. Isn’t that always the case? I’m not saying NIL in college is bad, but there are unintended consequences that always happen.
NOTES… Indianapolis QB Carson Wentz has foot surgery Monday. He will be out 5-12 weeks. That’s why the Eagles should not stick with Wentz. The guy can’t stay on the field. And when he is on the field, he’s nothing special.
