Royals rearrange deck chair on SS Minnow

From the Newsroom

KANSAS CITY, MO — The Royals reacted to this year’s offensive struggles by demoting hitting coach Andre David, the team said Monday night. David was reassigned to the team’s minor-league organization rather than being fired, likely because of the career-ending implications of being fired by the Royals.

David’s replacement is former minor league roving hitting instructor Mike Barnett, who represents the latest in a long line of coaches charged with making the Royals perform as if owner David Glass wasn’t squandering revenue-sharing funds on hookers and blow.
