This Glass Family thing has to end – and soon.
It’s painfully clear that with David Glass and his family at the helm, the Royals will continue to be little more than a FARM TEAM, TRIPLE A, or a FEEDER for other big league ball clubs.
Go ahead and reread that last sentence, why don’t you?
Meanwhile,Texas millionaire Mark Cuban tried to buy the Chicago Cubs and failed. He has the money and the smarts. He owns the Dallas Mavericks and has turned them into a strong NBA team. The fans there love him. So what if he’s loud and a bit odd, that just makes him more fun to watch.
How much fun is the Glass Family? Do they even exist?
With the complete, utter GIVEAWAY of star pitcher Zack Greinke to MILWAUKEE, that should end all doubt about where the Glasses are coming from.
If there was any.
With the current ownership we will always be last.
Kinda like the old Kansas City A’s. A farm team for the Yankees.
God, Greinke hated it here so much he went to "exciting Milwaukee." Wow. From one boring place to another, huh? The Brewers haven’t exactly been the place of WORLD CHAMPS, have they? You gotta really hate the Royals to go to Milwaukee.
What it means is that Zack thinks we stink and will continue to stink.
Last Place. So we build a player or two every decade, like Johnny Damon, Carlos Beltran and Zack. Only to give them away to teams that will get them press, dough and at least a glimmer of hope to win a title.
The Royals provide none of that.
In fact a recent Royal, semi slugger, Matt Stairs, told my real estate pal, that he was treated like crap as a member of the Royals. "Nice folks, just bargain basement style, no class, no frills, seemed like the minor league."
Great fans, said Matt, but he couldn’t wait to leave Kansas City. By far it’s the worst organization he said he’d ever played for.
End of quote. Are you surprised?
We have great fans in KC for a last place team. A club that has sucked for 25 years. I keep hearing about our great minor league players, don’t you. COME ON MAN. Enough of that B.S. we are a Wal-Mart ball club. BRING ON MARK CUBAN.
How bad is that Zack didn’t insist on Big Cities like New York, Chicago, Boston. How bad is it that he didn’t insist on at least a nice climate, L.A., Florida, Texas. Nope he went to for the love of Christ, MILWAUKEE. Man if that a slap in the face? What the hell is there to do in Milwaukee? Look
