Kansas City’s ownership has shown incredible patience with general manager Dayton Moore and now Moore wants to return the favor with manager Ned Yost.
Moore told Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star that Yost “has done a terrific job” this season and “I definitely want him back” as manager, but the two sides agreed not to discuss his contract status until after the season is over. Dutton notes that Moore only being under contract through 2014 could be a potential stumbling block if Yost wants more than a one-year deal.
Yost is one week from becoming a free agent, but Moore seems fairly confident that they’ll come to an agreement to keep him in Kansas City for a fifth season. His overall record with the Royals is just 281-328 (.461) and Yost also had a losing mark in six seasons with the Brewers, but he has a 83-75 record this year.
