The trouble is that JR and company have for the most part down through the years run the team more like the Royals than the Yankees, Dodgers or Red Sox.
This is wrong from both ends. They've definitely outspent and outperformed the Royals, and they'll NEVER have the kind of money that the Yankees, Red Sox or Dodgers have. Never. So, to expect them to run a team the way they do is just silly.
