Q & A with Omaha Royals' GM Martie Cordaro

Martie Cordaro, vice president and general manager of the Omaha Royals, recently made time for an email interview with me for

One of the questions I asked him was, "As you know, many fans of the Kansas City Royals are frustrated with what they perceive as a misuse of Omaha as a Triple-A affiliate. They view it as a place in which 28-32 year old players who aren't good enough to play in the majors are banished, rather than a proving ground for good young talent. What is your take on that view? Does Dayton Moore just need a couple of more years to stock the minor league affiliates with more talent?"

Here was his response:
We are anticipating the arrival of the past three drafts of KC Royals players beginning with a few of them in 2010. Stock-piling and building an organization takes time and we have all the confidence in the world in the direction that Dayton Moore is taking in Kansas City.
Check out the rest of the Q & A if you get a chance. His answers will give you some insight into the way he handles his everyday duties, his thoughts about the current roster, the transition from Rosenblatt Stadium to the new ballpark and he answers a couple of questions about some of the activities he enjoys.
