With one month of the Major League Baseball season underway, if a team is not performing up to expected standards, it can be tempting to call for an overhaul of the system.
There are a couple of teams that can fall under this issue at this point in the season. The Kansas City Royals, with a losing record of 14-17, could be considered a team in need of a coaching and staff change. Kansas City was expected to be legitimate contenders this year, coming off of a winning season of 86-76, but with the offense not coming through and injuries to the bullpen, the Royals sit second to last in the American League Central. Despite all of this, Royals’ General Manager Dayton Moore tells FOX Sports’ Jon Morosi his staff is staying put.
Just spoke with Royals GM Dayton Moore. He said he is “not even contemplating” changes to coaching staff or job of manager Ned Yost.

The Royals are in the middle of a three-game series with equally struggling San Diego. They lost last night in twelve innings, giving up three leads.
