the awful kansas city royals, tired of being the laughingstock of professional sports, fired their embattled GM in lieu of rising star GM drayton moore.
but they didn't stop there. they also hired hitting guru/videotape instructor/drill sergeant tom emanski, creator of the popular "teaching the mechanics of..." baseball video series.
the hiring was endorsed by fred mcgriff.
maybe, if they play baseball "the emanski way", they can one day be back-to-back-to-back AAU national champions.
okay, those last two jokes are really funny if you've seen those commercials.
