While I can understand that line of thinking to an extent, this is THE big decision the Royals will make this year.
At the very least you'd think Moore would want to make sure the franchise was going about making the decision in the right fashion. Even if Moore's not supplying the name, he could be asking questions like "Is this the guy we want or the guy we think we can sign?"
