    Re: Dean Taylor hired by Royals

    KANSAS CITY -- Royals Senior Vice President-Baseball Operations/General Manager Dayton Moore announced Tuesday the hiring of Dean Taylor as Vice President-Baseball Operations/Assistant General Manager.

    Taylor, 54, joins the Royals after serving as the assistant general manager of the Cincinnati Reds since Dec. 22, 2003. Taylor is no stranger to the Royals organization as he began his Major League career in Kansas City and was a key part in the Royals post- season success from 1981-89.

    "I'm very excited in Dean's decision to return to the Kansas City Royals," Moore said. "He is a highly skilled executive with vast knowledge of baseball operations."

    "It's an honor to return to the Royals and have an opportunity to work closely with Dayton Moore," Taylor said. "I believe ownership is committed to building a winning club, and there's no reason we cannot return the Royals to the status they enjoyed in the late '70s and '80s as one of the finest organizations in baseball."

    Moore also named Muzzy Jackson Vice President-Player Personnel/Assistant General Manger. Jackson, who is in his 15th season of professional baseball, has been assistant general manager of the Royals since 1999 and was promoted to Vice President-Baseball Operations on Oct. 31, 2003.

    "Muzzy's in-depth knowledge of our entire system makes him a perfect fit for this position," Moore said. "I feel the combination of Muzzy and Dean's 46 years of professional baseball experience will allow us to strengthen our baseball operations department for the future."

    Taylor brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Royals as he is in his 31st year of professional baseball. He served as Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Milwaukee Brewers from 2000-02 and spent the 2003 season as a consultant with the Los Angeles Dodgers, scouting Major League players and evaluating the minor league operations.

    Prior to his stint in Milwaukee, Taylor spent nine seasons as the Atlanta Braves Assistant General Manager under John Schuerholz and contributed to eight consecutive National League Eastern Division titles and the 1995 World Series Championship. While with the Braves, he was responsible for player contract negotiations and overseeing the day-to-day administrative duties related to Major League personnel while working closely with the scouting and player development departments.

    Taylor began his baseball career as a minor league general manager for four seasons and served as general manager of the Reds Northwest League affiliate in Eugene, Ore., during the 1979 and 1980 seasons.

    He joined the Royals front office in 1981 as an administrative assistant in the minor league department and a year later was named Royals Assistant Director of Scouting and Player Development. Following the Royals world championship season in 1985, he was promoted to Assistant to the General Manager under Schuerholz. He remained in that position until 1990, when he was hired by Major League Baseball as Manager of Baseball Operations in the Commissioner's Office.

    During his tenure as the Brewers general manager, he also served as Chairman of MLB.s Rules and Administration committee.

    Taylor was born in Brawley, Calif., and graduated from Claremont Men's College (Calif.) in 1973 with a bachelor's degree in economics and from Ohio University in 1975 with a master's degree in sports administration. He was named the 2001 Distinguished Alumnus of the Ohio University Sports Administration Program.

    Taylor and his wife Susan, who is a Kansas City native, will relocate to the Kansas City area. He has one son, Colby.

    There is joy in Mudville. I have already heard through the grapevine how estactic Krivsky is to unload Dean. Thank you Dayton Moore!!!!!!!
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    Did he really do that bad? I thought he was in charge of the draft and my most accounts last years draft was the best in years.

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    I think that Terry Reynolds was in charge of the draft prior to this year. I could be wrong though.

    From an ESPN story back in February (same story which talked about signing Hatteberg:

    The Reds hired Bob Miller from the Arizona Diamondbacks as director of baseball administration. They also hired Scott Nethery from the New York Mets as a special assistant for player personnel.

    Miller was with Arizona for the last seven years, as director of baseball operations and as assistant general manager. Nethery was with Atlanta for 13 years, and was a special assistant with the Mets last season.

    "Bob is a real experienced guy in terms of administration and rules, and has significant experience in player development," Krivsky said. "He's worn three or four different hats.

    Much obliged. You just don't get a Joe Mays and not have to give up something. Now, if someone will just take my suggestion to make Ryan Wagner the PTBNL for Brandon Phillips, I'll really be on a roll.
