Five years ago, the Royals stepped out of their traditionally tight control of their message and turned it over to a rag-tag group of bloggers. For a night.
It was 2011, and the Royals were in the midst of an historically bad decade of losing baseball. Their new manager, Ned Yost was grumbling through his […]
So, I’ve been toying with this idea of trying to figure out the Mount Rushmore (Top 4) of Play-By-Play (or Broadcaster Clips) for Kansas City Sports History.
Kansas City has had some outstanding broadcasters pass through town. Monty Moore called KC A’s and Chiefs games. Denny, of course. Maybe, even, you’re a Rex Hudler fan. […]

Shildt was extremely contrite and apologetic about his actions the night before. “I take full responsibility for my actions,” Shildt […]
Look, I don’t know what it’s like to work for a television station. That much we know. But it really looks like y’all really mailed it in last night during your “Royals Preview” show.
I understand that covering Spring Training is a bit like Groundhog Day. Go get an interview with the manager, the couple […]
The worst kept secret in Kansas City Sports Talk now has a due date – it’s March 19th, 2012.
The details are still being kept under wraps, but something is definitely happening with the 610 Sports lineup on March 19. It’ll be graduation day for at least one B-list 610 staffer and may likely include […]
Let me preface this rant with a couple of facts…
