What Royals GM Dayton Moore really meant by his ‘World Series’ comment

Yes, Dayton Moore said he felt like the Royals won the World Series when they finished 86-76 this season. Those words beg to be mocked. But there was more to what he meant. “I expect us to compete to win a World Series ” Moore told The Star’s Sam Mellinger, “but it means a lot to me that our fans are engaged with the team and love baseball.” Still, as Mellinger writes, there’s a problem with Moore’s message that goes beyond his word choice.
