Kansas City Royals News 10/9

Here's your Kansas City Royals news of the day.

The Mets have received permission to interview Allard Baird for the Mets GM job. Baird was the Royals GM until 2006. He's the man current GM Dayton Moore replaced. He's been the Red Sox director of professional scouting since then.

The Royals are forgotten for a few months. The AP wrote a story this week talking about how the Chiefs, Rams and Mizzou are all good this year (they're all Missouri teams). Funny, little mention of...the Royals. "It's getting crazy again," Harrah's casino dealer Al Hill said. "That's about all anybody wants to talk about, the Chiefs. I listen to talk radio a lot and if you get 10 seconds an hour on the Royals, it's unusual. Everybody is talking Chiefs, Chiefs, Chiefs." That's about accurate from my experiences around town as well. The Royals died off with the Chiefs big start.

Team USA dominates early at Pan American qualifying tournament in Mexico thanks to Royals players. Impressive numbers for the Royals young guys. Per a Royals press release: "Three Royals left-handers each posted a victory in their starts, and each went five innings. Everett Teaford allowed no runs, Danny Duffy just one run and Mike Montgomery two runs. Lefty reliever Tim Collins, in two games, pitched three scoreless innings. First baseman Eric Hosmer hit .438 (7-for-16) with six runs scored, seven walks and three RBIs. Third baseman Mike Moustakas was at .261 (6-for-23) with one home run and was tied for the team lead with six RBIs."
