Under Moore's direction, the Royals qualified for the playoffs this season for the first time since 1985. Their victory over the Orioles Wednesday sent them to their first World Series since that year. 

Atlanta's interim GM, John Hart, reportedly declined an offer to take the job on a full-time basis.
