Buddy Bell to step aside

    He and Dayton Moore don't seem to see eye to eye. Bell wanted to use Zack Greinke as closer, and Moore said Joakim Soria would move to closer. Bell said Leo Nunez earned another start after posting a 0.90 ERA in two starts, and Moore said Nunez needs more time in the minors.

    I just hope Bell doesn't have cancer again.

    So, it seems like Moore doesn't want Bell to manage his team. Is Moore going to do it?

    All this on the heels of the shitty Octavio Dotel for Ron Mahay trade.

    Maybe that was the last straw.

    Dayton Moore is definitely giving off a vibe saying, "My way or the highway ... buddy."

    Of course, it's way too early to speculate about a replacement.

    Dammit. The Royals seem to be getting the corner turned, and then this crap happens.

    One step forward, two steps back.

    Joe Girardi has turned down a few jobs lately and strangely once said one team on his list he'd like to manage was Kansas City.

    Interesting quote from Bell in the KC Star

    "The thing is,” he said, “I can’t know what I know and keep talking to guys about next year. I can’t do that. I’d feel dirty. You know, I think the players would understand. But I can’t do that. That’s too important to me.”

    I hope the only cancer he's dealing with now is the Kansas City Royals organization post-Ewing Kauffman.

    Wasn't it Davies for Dotel? Not that that's any better.

    He wouldn't be too bad. Although a sub-.500 year in one season as a manager doesn't exactly stand out on the ol'resume.

    Indeed, Moddy, it was Davies. I stand corrected.

    I find it impossible to believe that Buddy Bell can go two consecutive sentences without saying f-er, f-ing or some suck variation of that word. The quote had to be cleaned up. :)

    A good day to be a Royal ... as long as you can look the other way about Moore and his ongoing lap-doggish ways with his former master. Is there any doubt the next manager is going to come from the Braves organization? Girardi doesn't have a ghost of a chance.

    Terry Pendleton, perhaps?
