Royals owner David Glass says Dayton Moore isn’t going anywhere

There is a certain segment of Braves people — some fans, some, it seems, in the front office — who seem to think that Dayton Moore would leave the Royals to take the GM job in Atlanta. Maybe this made more sense when Moore was on the hot seat before this year, but it makes little sense to me given what has happened in Kansas City lately.

But if there was any doubt, owner David Glass is going to clear that up for you. Via Heyman:

After the Royals won their first American League pennant since 1985, Royals owner David Glass said they are “absolutely” keeping GM Dayton Moore, a rising star who is reportedly a potential target of the Atlanta Braves, where Moore grew up in the game.

“Absolutely, he’s staying,” Glass said to CBSSports.com in the afterglow of the Royals’ 2-1 victory against the Orioles that punched their ticket to their first World Series in 29 years. “We’re all part of this together.”

That leaves either John Hart — who may or may not have already turned the Braves down — assistant GM John Coppolella or, possibly, former Rockies GM Dan O’Dowd.
