    I’ve given up listening to KK. He’s been a drama queen as long as i can remember but i’ve put up with it. I can’t relate to the guy. I was glad when Nick Wright got the afternoon spot on 610. He’s worked outside the broadcasting industry (the door-to-door steak selling stories today were great) and his personal life stories don’t revolve around golfing with Jack Harry.

    AlGor’s problems are mental. He needs some time with a major league shrink. No doubt he’s got the physical tools but he’s not the first guy to bust because of head problems.

    With the CWS moving downtown the atmosphere will not be the same. I doubt that Omaha’s finest will tolerate the types of behavior that have been the norm in and around Rosenblatt.

    Nick Wright’s stock is falling faster than BP’s. WHB’s 15th place finish is nothing to brag about. In a market this small if you can’t get into the top ten you might as well hang it up. Still waiting for KK to change the name of his program to Between the Lies.

    Home plate umpire Jerry Lane had a wide strike zone, but it was the same for both teams — at least for right-handed hitters; Bruce Chen was helped considerably, also. With two strikes on them, those called third strikes were too close for Royals hitters to take — but they did anyway. Just as bad was how the Royals jumped on first pitches. Kevin Seitzer needs to have a long talk with his boys on patience; they’re guaranteed three pitchers, so at least use the first two looking for the hitter’s pitch instead of swinging at the pitcher’s one. Strasburg has the potential of making the Royals look silly (sillier?) Wednesday. On the other hand, the Royals could potentially be the team which brings him down to human form — at times they can be a difficult team for teams to handle because they generally have good contact hitters (second fewest K’s in MLB).

    GH: Bob Davis made the comment on Royals Radio after Betancourt took a called third strike saying, “That’s been a strike all night long.” I like a generous strike zone. It makes the game so much more enjoyable for both the players and fans. The fact that the Royals took three called-third strikes with the tying run on base in the ninth is almost unforgivable. But since it’s the Royals we just shrug and ask who’s pitching the next game.

    1. I’ve said it for years. The royals can’t
    pick talent. they have noone who can evaluyate
    talent…nd the coaches they have now aren’t
    doing shit.
    Seitzer needs to hit aviles in the head.
    His stance is killing him…and his average.
    The pitching coach is a joke
    Yost needs to go.
    How can a team like this that hits for a
    big average be this bad?
    NO clutch hitters. No home runs. Big payrolls
    for worthless players…and still they can’t
    figure out talent.
    Hochevar…gordon…pena…wastes of space.
    It’s time to bring in a new regime who can
    evaluate the talent on a team. Not moore..
    yost is toast…or these other guys.
    Fresh new manager with winning experience.
    Whyt do they continue to pick losers.
    OUtside of pod I can’t see anyone who can
    hustle…the guys always hustling.
    Gordon…keep beating this dead horse…
    and all the other worthless players brought
    here (jacobs/ankial/crisp/on and on) who
    turn out to be pure crap.
    The royals jinx a players career. Come tgo kc
    and watch your major league career vgo to shit.
    But I still go out and cheer them on.
    I’m a glutton for punishment.
    Last weekend…bases loaded no outs…and they
    socre zero/nada/zilch…wtf? If i was the
    coach i take the team inside the locker
    between inning and read them the riot act…
    no runs..no more in major leagues….back
    to omaha.
    First pitches…they jump on them like glazer
    jumps on 25 year old hotties…why?
    Looking forward to training camp in st. joe…
    go chiefs.

    the ratings you give are deceiving. They make
    sports talk look very weak in the market.
    Use men 25-54 rating then come back because
    thats what really counts to advertisers.
    And I don’t think you have to worry about these
    2 sports talk stations…they are selling lots
    of ads…especially kietzman and his segments
    on “hand made sausage” experts.

    GH: I don’t have access to the Arbitron numbers, I just linked to Landberg’s article. These numbers have always been very spinnable. I’m not sure that 610 being only 1.0 behing WHB in overall is all that bad. Sports talk isn’t looking to compete with mass-appeal stations. They simply want to dominate the male demo that buys lots of cars, beer and food.

    These are 6+ numbers people…I don’t think a lot of 6 year olds are listening to 810 or 610..Just a thought!

    The fact that Nick hasn’t announced victory I think is telling enough.

    Rate wars between 610 and 810 have driven ad prices down. A media buyer I know says that even with the strong male demo you’re pissing money away on those stations. Better ways to spend ad money and get a tangible ROI.

    25-54 was the shining demo when all the boomers were 25-54, but they’re not anymore. the real money demo is 46-64, the former 25-54. the smart media people know this. older boomers have more money to spend. the house is getting paid off, the kids are out of college and we were the people investing in the stock market when it was at 800. while 25-54 was THE demo back then, it’s not back then now. the largest segment of the population in the history of the world as getting (gasp) older with the majority of them between 46-64.

    I’m smack dab in the middle of that 46-64 demo and I’m spending lots of money these days. I want Keitzman to admit he is a liar and I want Fescoe fired. That’s all I ask.

    Who listens to radio commercials anymore anyway? Maybe it’s my ADD, but I flip the station when commercials come on. Same with television. Who doesn’t just DVR everything nowadays?

    Gordon has about as much chance suceeding with the Royals as Mrs.Funky has opening a sucessful charm school. Ol’ Clint. Just didn’t have the same stance after he left pine tar on George’s bat. Brett should have lent him his donut instead of sharing his long john.

    Royals = LOSERS
    Anyone who pays attention to the Royals = HUGE LOSERS
    Anyone who pays to attend a Royals game = LOSER OF BIBLICAL PROPORTIONS.

    Gordon sucks. He can bang fatties all night long but when you put him in bed with a supermodel he goes limp.

    Neither do the Royals, or the powers that be that run that shitbag franchise. They continue to teabag the local douchenozzle rubes as the diehards continue to go out to the ballpark. What’s funny is listening to dipshits to Rob & Rany on the radio who shed bitter tears over this hapless franchise ran by a retarded version of Keystone Cops.
