    I think Keitzman and Clinkscale played a role in ensuring the K rennovation got approved. With them railing against it so vehemently, people with common sense concluded it must be the right thing to do.(But it was a big mistake, IMO.)

    Keitzman is laughably paranoid about being slighted. Most Kansas Citians could give a flying fuck about what MLB players think about coming to KC. It’s going to be a good time.

    KK was right though. The ball park should of been built downtown. Few MLB teams build parks in the burbs, let alone rebuild a old park.

    The new K is just OK. But what is sad is that in other parks there are stuff to do around it. At our park all there is to do is a Denny’s and Taco Bell.

    Well at least we know where all the players and reports will go after the game.

    OH BS. Damn man, why are you always highlighting the negative? Honestly, I wonder. I negative waves all you got?

    This story is BS. Everyone loves KC. Players love KC, Bands love KC, people love KC.

    When have you EVER heard someone who has visited or played here bitch about it later? HUH ???

    Total BS story, you are full it.

    Why would any self respecting person publish a BS story when the source in un-named? This is tabloid type, made up, BS story. Only someone starved for negative topics would publish it. Are you really that hard up?

    Would you like some readers to just make up some negative BS stories so you can publish BS? Did you hear about how Angelina and Jennifer had a wild sex party with Brad after their weekly dog fighting party?

    It is one thing if the players who feel this way would step up and say it, but until then, why would you publish it, that is silly.

    As for any idiot thinking/claiming/saying that players will not play due to mystery injuries ???
    Uh, let me inform you …
    THE ALLSTAR GAME COUNTS.
    It means home field advantage.
    Player know that, but I guess the tabloid girls do not.

    They also erroneously said, “We didn’t build a downtown ballpark when EVERYONE else did.”

    Last time I checked, Arlington is no where near ANY downtown. Philadelphia’s new ballpark is not downtown, either. The difference is that Philadelphia has a train that can quickly take you from downtown to the ballpark. Never going to happen here.

    Think about it. You’re an MLB All Star, have lots of money and can do whatever you want. Do you wanna spend a week in Kansas City. HELL NO.

    When the decision was made to proceed with Truman Sports complex renovations, KK was livid with local politicians for not demanding that David and Dan Glass build Downtown. He blasted them up one side and down the other. Well…you can’t build a stadium on spec. The owner of the team has to agree on being a tenant. At least now he is pinning the blame where it should be…on the Glass family.

    Always keep in mind that KK is motivated by ratings. It KILLED him to have to say some of the things he did about Kansas city, his home town. But, with other stations breathing down his neck, he needs CONSTANT publicity, and in the media game, there’s no such thing as bad publicity.

    KK and his cronies spent a lot of money buying up downtown properties before the city decided to renovate The K. Don’t know if it hurt him financially or not, but I do know it didn’t become the bonanza they thought it would be if the new stadium was built downtown. He will bang that drum for more years to come, even at the expense of calling his beloved city, hurtful names.

    My God, did you hear him saying nice things about St. Louis the other day? When that happens, you know it’s a PR trick. Sad actually.

    KK’s rant is pathetic and self serving. It’s like the kid who didn’t get his way and keeps crying. Grow up Kevin, we’re not getting a downtown ballpark anytime soon, and we ARE getting an All-Star Game. Furthermore, if this player doesn’t want to come to KC, then he may go have sex with himself as far as I’m concerned.

    Sadly, the KK mentality is alive in this town, and believe me he is not the only one. If you have to get self esteem from other people in life and otherwise, then you lead a pathetic existence. This same player probably would whine about going to Detroit, Pittsburgh or Milwaukee for the ASG as well.

    Cliffy is right on, KK and Clinkscale opposing the renovations helped get the renovations passed.

    Actually Cousin Eddie, there are a few nice things about St. Louis. This whole woe is me crap about what ballplayers think about KC is just promoting your whole inferiority complex. I never heard ONE person in St. Louis cry about the fact that someone didn’t want to play the All Star game here. We heard the grumblings about some All Stars not wanting to be playing in St. Louis in the middle of summer. Hey, it gets really hot here, too but our attitude was basically..if you don’t want to be here, well, eff you, we’ll have a good time without you and we did. And as much as Bud Selig is a weasel, he’s not going to let the big names sit out. You know, it’s really too bad that the guys who get the ratings are the guys who shout the loudest about things that signify nothing. I think by him perpetrating this whole story and blowing it up more than it needs to be does more harm to KC than what a ball player thinks. Grow some balls, KC, come on, you are sooo much better than that.

    Randy, don’t get me wrong, STL is OK in my book too, but not for KK. It’s been his schtik for years to bag on St. Louis and Notre Dame, and to hear him be nicey nice to STL is out of character and phony.

    Kietzman was also very supportive of Kansas City and then mayor Kay Barnes for building a downtown arena and saying that if we built one we would be guaranteed to attract an NBA and an NHL team. You can see how far that idea went. In my mind Kietz has pretty lost any credibility with me based on his past record. He never admits his mistakes or ideas that were completely wrong.

    I thought for a minute I was the only one that caught this. You know what I say? I quote Bill the Cat; “PFTPH!”

    We’ll just have a good time without the spoil sports.

    KC blew it big time when we didn’t built a new baseball stadium downtown. We’ll get it rectified in 10 years or so when we need a new stadium. Renovating the K was throwing money away kinda like when the city decided to do a little renovation to Kemper.

    BTW, I hope your friend buys the Royals. It can’t happen soon enough.

    Fuck Kevin Kietzman. If people had any fucking brains in KC, he would have been run out of town long ago. Good thing for me, I have satellite radio so I don’t have to listen to local shit.
