Kansas City Royals: The complicated legacy of David Glass

Well, it is all but official. After nearly two decades as the owner of the Kansas City Royals, David Glass has sold the team to local businessman John Sherman for $1 billion.

He did save the team from folding or moving away and we did get a World Series out of the deal, I ain’t mad at him. I gave up on baseball a long time ago so I’m not kissing his ass because I really don’t care one way or another.

when Wade Davis was traded I knew the Royals were no longer serious and would be content to rest on their World Series laurels.

Thanks Mr. Glass. Spread the wealth. You deserve it. Nobody else could have done it.

When Glass chose to keep Gordon over Hosmer, Moose, Cain, Zobrist and Davis, I knew our days of being a competitive team were well over. In the end Glass chose the wrong guy.
