    FYI-It should say President not Athletic Director after Wefald’s name. You could say “de facto Athletic Director.”

    Whenever I hear or read what Chris and Cowboy are doing attacking everyone in sight, I think of “The American President” and a portion of the President’s speech at the end…

    “Bob Rumson is not the least bit interested in solving it. He is interested in two things and two things only: making you afraid of it and telling you who’s to blame for it. That, ladies and gentlemen, is how you win elections.”

    Radio talk show hosts who need ratings in a hurry usually attack everything in sight as a sensationalist desperation act so you will listen: that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you get ratings.

    Stop following the Morton Downey Jr/TrainWreck Handbook of “how do keep your job by attacking anyone” and talk intelligently about the sports in our area. THAT is what will keep people coming back to you.

    Oh, and BTW, on crushing the newspaper: pretty odd of C & C attacking the Star when I thought 610Sports has an exclusive arrangement with the Star on having staff members on 610 only?

    KU was here before C&C – and it will be here long after they are just another afterthought in KC radio. Yeh, makes sense to me – rip KU and turn away their listeners when your arbitron ratings are in the basement…

    BTW, anyone who critisises what Mangino has done with that program is either (A) a Tigger lover or (B) just plain ignorant…

    Cowboy didn’t criticize what Mangino has done with the program. He criticized him for being an ass.

    What I thought was interesting about KK’s comments on Wefald was that this was a guy that KK called a friend and yet he was willing to throw him under the bus. I am not sure I would want to be on KK’s friend list.

    I think this story will have legs and we will find out more as the investigation and probably future lawsuits play themselves out.

    You’re right, Olivo is hitting where most catchers hit nowadays. I don’t understand why that is but it seems baseball has become very tolerant of anyone who can catch a 97-mph fastball and hit .240. I just expect more from that position. What turned my head was Clink’s comment that the Royals are set at catcher. Olivo is okay, but since when did okay mean “set?”

    But he’s far from the Royals most pressing problems. If we had some pop in our corner players and a ss w/ some glove and a bat, no one would care what Olivo hit.

    Do you listen to any other shows than C and C and Kietz? Can we have something original please?

    Greg is a huge fan of Nick Wright. When Nick Wright opens his commercials with the fabulous line “It’s your boy Nick Wright”, he’s talking about his homie Greg.

    I agree with you that Clinkscale was a bit optimistic with his declaration that the position of catcher is “set.” One might charitably view his remarks as a statement that this team has so many other glaring weaknesses that focusing on catcher is like rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic, but that’s not what Clinkscale said, not at all.

    However, your point about Olivo hitting where most catchers hit nowadays isn’t exactly accurate either. As I said in my original comment, if you go back in history, no hall of fame catcher has a lifetime batting average even approaching .300. And those are guys that are in the hall of fame, which seems to be an unlikely destination for Olivo unless he buys a ticket like the rest of us. If Johnny Bench is going to get into the hall with a lifetime .267 average and the Royals can play in one World Series with a .248 hitting catcher and win another playing with a .247 hitting catcher, I’m not sure your expectations are entirely reasonable.

    And I’m not sure you can say that baseball “has BECOME very tolerant” of catchers who hit .240. It seems to me that those catchers have not only been tolerated but welcomed. And for a very long time, if history is any judge. Successful catchers hitting .240 isn’t exactly a new phenomenon.

    I may have problems. Not listening/viewing enough shows is not one of them. Email me your show and I’ll give it a listen.

    C&C are losers. They have a horrible show and sound like a bunch of punks who just started on radio. It’s time for Entercom to pull the plug on 610. They have tried since 2003 to bring KK and 810 down and have failed every time.

    If Whitlock and Maas couldent do it when how in the world could C&C?

    KK is the King of all KC Sports Media…Deal with it.

    Where baseball has become tolerant is in giving million dollar salaries to catchers as bereft of skills as John Buck. When Buck makes $2.9 million to play as a back-up catcher on a team that has not sniffed the post-season since 1985, that is what I consider extremely tolerant.

    Hipity loves KK we got it. I’m glad his son has a place to share his love.

    Framing pitches is a lost art. I umpired HS and college baseball for 16 years. As the home plate ump, you love a catcher who makes recieving the pitch look easy. Jerky movements or guys who dive around back there make every pitch look like a ball. And trust me, umpires want to call strikes not balls.

    We used to have a pat comment for catchers who would catch a pitch off the plate and then jerk their glove back into the strike zone — “Every time you move your glove, that just makes two of us who think the pitch was a ball.”
