Royals GM Didn't Know He Was Allowed To Make Moves During Offseason

KANSAS CITY, MO—During a Monday conference call with the media, Royals GM Dayton Moore confessed he had "no idea" he was permitted to make player transactions between baseball seasons.

Moore said the revelation that he would be working through the winter gave him all the more reason to look forward to his annual October vacation.
