    Went to The K last night…good win. Royals cleared the dugout like they just clinched the pennant.
    I think Glass is really missing the boat on revenue.
    Imagine if he could put floating banners in the fountains.or..how bout projecting hologram logos of Metamucil and Flomax on the waterfalls.

    KC team

    “the guys a fucking nutcase. That’s why we cut
    him at the end of the season. The guys about to go postal and I’m glad he’ll be doing it in
    kansas city”
    Bud Selig (former Brewers owner) on
    Ned Yost

    “Shit…we’d be 15 games back if we played
    glazer/hearne and tony. These guys we’ve got
    ain’t worth a shit. Heck…even pork chop could do better behind the plate than kendall. All
    he needs to do is sit there and catch balls in his big gut”
    Ned Yost on the current royals roster

    “ah…ah…ughgh…ah….uh…uh….ha ha
    ha ha had…..girgle….guzzle”

    “I’m a cool looking jewish guy. I act cool
    around the players and pretend I eat kosher
    hot dogs all day.”
    Joel Goldberg

    “i’m the coolest fucking dude in this entire
    universe. I hang out with billy bear and tony.
    I produced 100’s of movies…starred in 30 of
    them…recognized by everyone…and I’m still
    the ticket taker at a club in kansas city kansas.
    I’m the coolest dude…ask any black barbie in
    this town you see on a street corner….
    I’m big time…people ask for my autograph all the time cause I’m coooool and my daddy ran
    for mayor. What more ocould a woman want?”
    Craig Glazer, on his life

    “I’ve got a big head…and people say I resemble
    fred munster. I take that as a compliment because fred made all the hot girls swoon.
    MY daddy died and left me lots of money so I can
    hang out in bars and pretend like I’m a big
    shot.
    The first wife left me for some bartender….
    but that’s okay…cause I’ve got more puss than
    a toilet seat.”

    What the Yankees want, the Yankees get. And the Yankees want (Joaquin) Soria.

    I know a life-long Brewers fan, living in Milwaukee, who HATED Ned Yost and did cart-wheels when he got fired.

    He agrees that Yost is good with young players, but he thinks too much so. He also complained to me about the lineup (like Kendall batting 2nd) and said he was a disaster with the Milwaukee bullpen. In Milwaukee he supposedly got short and condescending to the media. And whenvever the Brewers got into playoff contention, that’s when Ned would crumble. He even had a nickname up in Milwaukee, “Nervous Ned”.

    He’s fine this year. And maybe next. But I”M the one nervous about having Ned hired long-term.

    “I think this organization has always tended to overvalue their players.”

    Clinkscale with one of the silliest of his typically silly assessments. The Royals’ problem has been just the opposite; they tend to panic in the face a free agency and fire-sale future stars. Beltran comes to mind immediately; run the string on the Beltran deal and all you really end up with is Chris Getz. Will KC get more than a bag of donuts for Guillen, who could actually help some clubs.

    Greg, I think our manager is “priced right.” I can’t get on the bandwaggon anymore. The Royals just don’t how to win. Its hard to explain. To be honest Butler is a good player, but there really is nobody on this team to watch, nobody is exciting.

    Butler isn’t a good player. He’s a good hitter.

    Why should we be all excited about signing Yost long-term? He hasn’t done anything yet. Relax.

    The Royals could trade Guillen for Pujols and KK and Clink would criticize it because WHB doesn’t have the broadcast rights.

    Ned Yost hasn’t really demonstrated he’s the best man for the job. But has showed us Trey Hillman was the worst.

    they’re still 10+ games out in mid-summer again. when college football starts, we can go back to ignoring this pathetic franchise, and really, all MLB.

    As a famous comedian (daniel tosh!) said “why do we need 180 games to see that the Yankees will buy the world series?”

    Jo Jo– I have a very high threshold for insults and irreverence. And you crack me up. But there are are a few sore spots for me. One is ripping someone for a physical deficiency or illness.. (The Splittorf comment is out of line.) I also despise the word “retard,” which gets used a lot on KC Confidential.
    One of the hardest things in the world to deal with is when your special needs child comes to the realization that they have limits, that they are different, and always will be. Try explaining it to them.
    Other than that, keep firing away.

    Since we are bringing up Funkhouser in sports posts. Recently, I was at a pseudo high profile reception, and I saw Funk standing alone. I went ahead and approached him and started talking to him. I rarely do that kind of thing, but I kind of felt sorry for him standing there alone. That is weird… The mayor standing alone in a crowded room…. I thought he was a very cool guy and he really cares about Kansas City. He is not in it for the notoriety. I am not so sure he is unelectable. The Gloria thing blew over, and he had the gonads to fire Wayne Cauthen. That took some nads. I would be careful about counting him out.

    Sorry Rainbowman, but if you talk for a living and you have a speech impediment, you’re fair game for criticism.

    Re: Retard
    I think you’re being overly sensitive to a commonly used term. But, I respect your point.

    SORRY…splittorf talks that way before his
    injury…and it was not an insult…he
    was boring before his injury/illness…
    it was not intended as an insult.
    Lefever and white are a great pair…no other
    team in baseball breaks up their announcers like
    this…but again this is the royals and everything they do turns to shit.
    As the other poster said..when you write and
    get paid to write in public..you are a target
    or if you can’t take it…move on to something
    else.
    90% of what i and my assistant say is tongue
    in cheek so don’t get too upset.
    We want to create controversy…we want to be
    like whitlock and hearne…but we don’t get
    paid to put it out there.
    But as always…i am the most noted columnist
    /poster on this site which is a compliment.
    I aim to get these dull boring conversations
    kicked up and exciting for you people.
    And i do a good job. I rile you people up with
    our comments.
    so have at it….lets rumble verbally…and
    as far as the royals…i’ve lost interest…its
    just too much b.s. to continue.
    NO one cares so why should i spend 3 hours
    of precious time wasting away on this team.
    My plan is very simple and is the only one that
    makes sense for this team and market.
    1. FIRE MOORE/YOST/ENTIRE COACHING STAFF/
    PITCHING COACH ETC.
    2. BRING IN A WINNING MANAGER..PAY HIM BIG
    BUCKS…HE CALLS THE SHOTS…NEW PERSONEL
    DIRECTOR.
    3. SHUT DOWN AAA TEAM…SHUT DOWN AA TEAM…
    FIELD HIGH SCHOOLERS IF NEED BE…BUT TAKE
    THAT MONEY AND PUT INTO FREE AGENTS IN MAJORS.
    4. STOP ALL LATIN RECRUITING..STOP ALL
    SCOUTING…STOP ALL B.S. !
    5. TAKE THAT MONEY AND PUT INTO BANK FOR
    FREE AGENTS.
    6. END ALL DRAFT PICKS…TRADE OR SELL YOUR
    PICKS FOR CASH. THE ROYALS WILL NEVER FIND
    A GREAT PLAYER IN THE DRAFT…AND IF THEY HAVE
    THE #3/#4 PICKS THATS WORTH MILLIONS TO OTHER
    TEAMS WITH SOLID MINOR LEAGUE PROGRAMS.
    7. ACCUMULATE CASH…SELL RIGHTS TO EVERY INCH
    OF KAUFMAN…SELL THE BACK OF JERSEYS…LOGOS
    ON BATS…HOME PLATE ADS…SELL DUGOUT
    TOPS…SELL BACKS OF 39,000 SEATS….SELL
    LOGO ON PITCHERS MOUND…SELL ENTIRE OUTFIELD
    WALL…SELL ADS IN MENS URINALS…SELL ADS
    ON BACK OF DOORS IN WOMENS RESTROOM STALLS
    …..SELL PROMOTIONAL NIGHTS EVERY NIGHT….
    SELL PARKING LOT ENDORSEMENT (cERNER pARKING
    LOT)…sell every inchof the stadium to sponsors
    and raise extra millions….hell sell sponsorship
    riights to hall of fame (HALLMARK HALL OF FAME
    SUITES)…..all unsold seat afer 1st inning sell
    for $3.00…raise price of concessions….
    sell logos on beer cups to DUI attorneys…
    sell flags in outvfield….sell every inch
    of concourse space….sell the entire freaking
    stadium out for cash…could raise an extra
    6 million dollars a year….sell sponsorship
    rights to stadium name “VIAGRA KAUFMAN STADIUM”
    ////
    take all the money…probablyt 50 million a year…add to payroll…payroll goes to 120
    million a year….
    take extra 50-60 million a year and pay
    free agent pitchers (2) starters…and
    2 slugging outfielders to add 150-180
    rbi’s per year to current team.
    then you might have a winner quickly…otherwise
    its 2020 and we’re saying “just wait til 2023..
    we’ll finally have a winner then!”

    My mom was an accountant for the KC Royals at their old stadium for years. We use to go hang out and get autographs from the players when ever they would let us. Paul Splittorff talked to all the kids and signed anything we asked him to sign. If he had a speach problem, it never showed. Sometimes, respect is the best way to handle yourself. The old Royals were a good team. Cookie Rojas was one of the best base stealers that ever lived. Maybe if we could give the new Royals the attention that we want to receive, they would feel the energy and play better.
