Royals sign yet another asshole

The Royals have invited journeyman right-hander Sidney Ponson to camp, adding another colossal jerk to the list of players Dayton Moore has worked to acquire.

Moore cultivates a squeaky-clean image. Last year, he and manager Trey Hillman talked about their faith at a special chapel at the Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. When he arrived in town, Moore promised Joe Posnanski that he would stock the clubhouse with guys who helped little old ladies with their groceries. “I would not draft or sign anyone unless I believed in his character,” Moore said.

Today, Moore’s quote stands as one of the most hollow things a Kansas City sports figure has ever said.
