Dayton Moore says David Glass would allow him to increase payroll as Royals chase playoff berth

As the Royals push for their first playoff berth since 1985, general manager Dayton Moore is confident the team’s ownership would allow him to expand the club’s record-setting payroll at next month’s trading deadline — if, of course, Moore deems such a move necessary. “We’re not in the business of losing money,” Moore said. “And it’s not my job to do anything to hurt this franchise long-term. But Mr. Glass has always been very supportive. It’s not about the money. It’s about who the players are.”
