Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star reports that the Kansas City Royals have reached a tentative agreement with General Manager and Mason alum Dayton Moore on an extension through 2014. Moore has made a number of questionable moves, signing right fielder Jose Guillen in 2007 and locking shortstop/right fielder Willie Bloomquist and relief pitcher Kyle Farnsworth to multi-year contracts last year, but he was widely criticized after trading for shortstop Yuniesky Betancourt, who holds a major league-worst -17.3 ultimate zone rating. Although Betancourt has kept himself from swinging at pitches out of the strike zone, he has not helped Moore prove his case in acquiring his “huge upgrade.”
