Ad calls for David Glass to sell Royals

Given the serialized failures that Royals fans have endured since David Glass purchased the team, it's easy to understand why they'd prefer a new caretaker for the once-proud franchise. Now, a subset of those fans are calling on Glass to sell the team to someone more willing to reinvest in the product.
Using fan donations to no-more-glass.com, organizer Joe Accurso purchased ad space in the sports section of the Kansas City Star and published an open letter to Glass -- a letter that urges him to sell the team to a local owner who actually cares about, you know, winning baseball games.
While I have no doubt that this letter will fall on deaf ears, it does seem to signify growing unrest within the fan base.
At this point, I suppose the best thing you can say about David Glass is that he isn't Jeffrey Loria.
