What's the problem? Why are people bitching so much? That's my question. That's my frustration. The problem is people having patience with the process.

Brian Cashman. Hey Ca$hmoney, Dayton knows all about impatient fanbases and high-pressure media firestorms. Give him a call and I'm sure he'll help you out, maybe even send you a stud reliever locked up for years. All it will cost you is some kid that I heard doesn't even have a real position.

On Meeting Dayton Moore

Another shameless self-share, in case you missed it on Twitter and whatnot. In short - I met GMDM. It didn't go well. I used words in a blog post to kick myself.

Video: GM's Corner: Week 2

Jim "Boy Wonder" Bowden (!) leads a "Small Market GM Roundtable" with contributions from Theo Epstein (representing big markets), Josh Byrnes, Dave Dombrowski, Mark Shapiro, and... wait for it... a really, really, beaten-down looking Dayton Moore. I'll let you watch for the highlights.I made a bunch of jokes on Twitter, but I'll let you guys take it. Dayton does say "impactful" and busts out the "we have to overpay... not that we're making excuses!" line.

Looming in the background, of course, is Willie Bloomquist, who played seven different positions and made just 10 errors despite all the switching around. "He's unbelievable. Willie can do all," Hillman said. "Willie's our ace in the hole. He's one of those guys who'll never get the credit he's due."

This whole article is full of brilliant nuggets of wisdom from Trey and Dayton on defensive stats and what makes a good player. Who better to learn from? Best Royals.com article in a long time.

"There’s so much to be gained from process," Irvin told me and two Miami radio hosts. "Professional athletics doesn’t have time for process. Athletes are given wealth instantly. We live in a society that used to prepare meals in a process and put them in the oven to bake and now we put things in a microwave and eat right away. We’re into instant gratification. We’ve lost the process. We’ve lost patience."
