    What was up with Splittorf’s voice? I barely recognized him on the broadcast.

    I guess in Japan you must learn how to manage the wrong way because I haven’t seen much logic in how he does anything. Teahan batting 3rd? C’mon Gordon needs to step up and be 3rd in the lineup. Teahan should be batting 6th or 7th.

    The postgame attention is focused squarely on Farnsworth and Hillman, as it should be. However, let’s not forget this – the Royals were built this year to score runs. Period. That is how we are going to win. Scoring two and leaving 11 stranded may work with Meche and Greinke throwing but not with Ponson or Ramirez. The lack of situational hitting will kill this team in ’09, not the bullpen.

    Why the shock? They’re the Royals, that’s what they do. I understand that as an “homage” to our baseball team, and David Glass, that Walmart is going to change the name of their private label dog food from “Ol’ Roy” to “Ol’ Royals”

    Did Split have a stroke in the off season? He sounded terrible!

    He had a viral infection that attacks the nervous system, mainly your speech. Not sure of the name of it,bells palsy I believe, and it is bad. He just recently got his speech back a week ago. Should be back to normal in a few months.

    In the meantime I think it’s a disservice to the fans. Honesty, it was unbearable and that may be mean to say, but it’s the truth. We deserve more as fans especially when you’ve got two ex-players in White and McRae who have done it before.

    810 just announced that the Royals TV network will make a change and replace Splittorf with Frank White until he’s ready to continue.

    I agree with John. I like Splitt’s work but if you can’t perform your job, you can’t go on the air. How could the fact their TV analyst couldn’t speak slip by the TV production team until after the opener?
