Re: Baird gets one more year - is it his last?

the fundamental difference between yours and shina's points and mine, are that if the team management is acknowledging they are the ones telling him to swing away all the time, who are we to say he cannot draw a walk? it is pretty hard to draw a walk if everyone tells you not to. This is the most p...

Re: Chiefs Win Ugly

I want to see the Chiefs shock the world against the Broncos next week in the National spotlight The Broncos suck this year and almost everyone realizes it.  After they had one of the most bizarre offseasons ever, Jake Plummer has hit new levels of overall uselessness in the first two games.&n...

Re: April 4 election for stadium renovations?

People in Kansas City always seem to think about the stadiums as an obligation that we have to take care of.  What people don't realize is that building new stadiums will be wise financial decision.  When was the last time the SuperBowl was in KC?  NEVER.  With a retractable roo...

Re: Mad at Gov't Response to Kat.?

I think that someone still in New Orleans just writing what he sees is probably more reliable than any mainstream news source, and it's certainly more reliable than assumptions that are based on little more than trust in the government, made by people who are hundreds of miles away from everything. ...

Re: Truman Sports Complex or bust?

Detroit is always upheld as the prime example of a downtown ballpark failing to deliver as promised.  However, there are a couple of important things to remember about the Detroit situation.  The park was built in a bombed out part of town with little to no development initiatives going o...

Re: Truman Sports Complex or bust?

Actually, the Royals need a downtown stadium a lot more than Downtown does.  But the current owner isn't interested in a new stadium for a team that he will either sell or liquidate within a few years. What the Royals need is to win some games.  You can put a beautiful stadium in the hear...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

But my point is that it was still better than having them lose all the money during the season under the old system and folding at the end of the year.  Its better to get a scar then to die.  At least they can recover from this, even if short term it might not have been the best thing. It...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

Loosing an entire season was good for the NHL.  The owners even said that they were making more money than if the players had been playing, thats how messed up the salarys were in the league.  Almost 85% of the money made went to the players, did you know Hockey players are the highest pa...

Preist is old news. The chiefs said larry johnson proved himself last year so they are giving the starting spot to larry not priest! It may just be for the first few games though. You might want to start getting your news from somewhere that doesn't just make it up.  Priest is the starter, Pri...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

Downtown baseball makes the product attractive even when the team sucks and lets face it the Royals will need that help more years than not. You might think so, but the numbers don't support it.  Look at the attendance figures of any bad team with a new downtown stadium.  Attendance has n...

Re: TY LAW

Yes - actually, he is.  He runs one of only 3 franchises not to win a playoff game in the last 11 years. Now that he's got an offense that rewrites NFL record books every season, he's made every right move to try to fix the defense.  He's certainly made some questionable moves over those ...

You are forgettting one very important point about Wily Mo - he has a tremendous upside and is also still only 23 years old. And like you pointed out with Grienke, you can't look at the stats to determine long term trade value.  I agree that two young arms is a high price to pay, but we do hav...

Re: Trade Bait for the Royals

I don't expect Sweeney or Stairs to be traded.  The Royals don't need to dump salary and Sweeney's contract doesn't expire until 2007, so it's not at all similar to the Beltran situation last year.  The only way Sweeney moves is if the Royals are presented with an incredibly sweet deal for...

Why? ... Why not? Should we allow people to sin any longer freely? Take a look at where society has gone in the past century...
