KANSAS CITY, Mo. The Royals are in the ultimate transition, in ways huge and tiny, and the path of one specific transition will say so much about the rest.
This is the first defining moment of the new Royals of John Shermans Royals. The team needs a new manager, and while the process will happen away from public view the result will be the first significant clue of what the Royals will be next.
General manager Dayton Moore, with the help of his assistants and friends around Major League Baseball, has several candidates to interview and the blessing of both outgoing owner David Glass and incoming owner Sherman to make a decision.
