Royals owner still mum on possible changes
Tuesday, May 9, 2006
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City Royals owner David Glass reiterated Monday that he is not ready to announce what front-office changes he has in mind.
Glass said last week that he was planning "significant changes" in his woebegone club, which entered Monday night's game against Cleveland with a major league-worst 7-22 record.
"What I said last week was none of us are happy with our record and that I think the team's better than the way that it's played, and that we weren't willing just to sit and wait and see if we got better," Glass said when confronted by about two dozens reporters and cameramen near the Royals' batting cage.
"What we were going to do is we were going to change everything that we could possibly change to improve the team's record. That's exactly what I said and that's what we're working on, and as soon as we know what we're going to change I'll be glad to share it with all of you."
Asked if he was going to fire general manager Allard Baird, Glass refused comment.
"We're examining all of our alternatives. Anything that we can change," he said. "As a fan, I'm very frustrated. I bear the frustration of all the fans of Kansas City and I just want everyone to know that we're not happy with the way things are going now, with our record. But we're not just going to sit and see if it gets better when our players get back. We're going to change everything that we can change. Right now I don't know what we can change."
