I am just shocked that a Japanese League manager could not win with the amazing talent of the Kansas City Royals. Do these front offices actually think they can get *anyone* to win with the roster? I never understand these firings.

From talking to a couple of friends that are Royals fans they felt he was a horrendous manager that made some really dumb mistakes that cost the team. That said, Dayton Moore is the worst GM in Baseball and The Owner is a joke too. Poor Grienke.

It's just that his style was more suited to Japan. Hell they have a bar named after him over there.

The biggest problem is the culture. Winning is a culture ans so is losing. After not being relevant for 25 years, it will take one hell of a commitment on the owners part. Until the 1990s, my beloved Tribe had one season worth talking about, 1968 when they were third. It took an owner with a real commitment and patience. And at that they were relevant with two Series appearances and no wins.
