The general manager describes how he built one of baseball s best farm systems and international scouting departments of out nothing. He shares insight on how he persevered through six consecutive losing seasons and the critical response to controversial trades of Zack Greinke and Wil Myers transactions that ultimately yielded the foundation of a champion. Full of never-before-told stories from inside the Royals organization" More Than a Season" features a foreword by star outfielder Alex Gordon and an introduction by William F. High, CEO of the National Christian Foundation Heartland."
