mike moustakas 600

Kansas City Royals All-Star third basemen Mike Moustakas told Mike North and Andy Furman on FOX Sports Daybreak all the money in the free agent market pales in comparison to his current situation with the World Champion Kansas City Royals

Mike North: If I told you the grass is greener on the other side, you know what I mean? I think you’re a Kansas City guy, even though you’re from California. You are Kansas City Royals baseball, and I’d like to see you play your whole career there. Even if the money is a little less, I think you’ve got your niche. What do you think?

Mike Moustakas: "We’re still a couple years from that but I love Kansas City. They’ve been nothing but great to me."

Mike North: "You think about the money everyday, don’t you?"


Mike Moustakas: "No sir. Never. You’ve got the wrong guy. I love playing baseball. I’m fortunate that I get to come out here and play baseball as a job. Money, obviously it’s important, but not as important as being with a great organization and having a bunch of great teammates and coaching staff like we do in Kansas City."
