Royals banking on Morales, Rios to fuel power-starved lineup

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) Dayton Moore knows perfectly well how rare it was for a team as starved for power as the Kansas City Royals were last season to make the playoffs, let alone the World Series.

He also knows that it would be nearly impossible to replicate the feat.

So after the Royals were finally ousted by the San Francisco Giants in a dramatic Game 7, and the book was finally closed on their first postseason appearance in nearly three decades, the general manager started the grueling task of retooling. And not surprisingly, he began by identifying a couple of players who could provide some pop to the middle of the Kansas City lineup.
