Former World Series Winning Exec Linked To Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers are continuing to be willing to spend money to put the best product on the field. Over half a billion last offseason in free agent signings, rumors of big expenditures this winter on pitching, a big-name new manager, and now a rumor that they're about to bring in a big-name front office executive. 

MLB Insider Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers have been linked to former longtime Kansas City Royals GM Dayton Moore—the man who assembled the team that won the 2015 World Series. Current Rangers GM Chris Young was a pitcher with the Royals, under Moore, from 2015 to 2017 to finish his career. 

The Rangers have already brought in plenty of championship pedigree with the recent hiring of 3-time World Series-winning manager Bruce Bochy

The Royals fired the 55-year-old Moore with about two weeks left in the season, after missing the playoffs for each of the seven years since their championship.
