Make it rain Jackson County

102

I'm highly skeptical anytime Kietzman rails against anything. Even more so when he dares sully the good name of sacred commerce. He was kicking up a lot of dust this afternoon regarding how the Royals organization is spending funds given to them by the voters of Jackson County in the big vote a few years back. On the surface, seems like more hatred fuel for the swelling ranks of the anti-Glass mob. And frankly, if the info is legit, rightfully so. Legit swelling. Using these tax-payer funds to cover payroll taxes for employees is especially cynical. Corporate welfare at its finest.

The Good Judge

18

Judge reveals the more human side of his Jekyl & Hide act (or is it Heckel & Chide), with a somewhat interesting description of some common (and some not so common) baseball terms. Of course, the bulk of it is larded with some pro-Getzian rhetoric, but overall, I think this fairly close to the kind of Lee we can live with around these parts.

Expansion domino drops?

51

Until Trey gets fired and DeJesus gets traded, what say the college football fans in Royals Nation regarding the (possible) expansion? As a NU fan, I'm excited about some new rivalries, continuing to stoke the fires v Columbia (damn the Gabberts), and kicking Iowan ass (hopefully). Hoops will be interesting too....supposedly, if ND declines, Syracuse will be offered. I think Big 12 folks tend to look down their nose at Big 10 football and basketball. If you look at bowl games, I think Big 10 did better than Big 12 last year (whether or not that is a good measure is another issue), and Michigan St and Wisconsin always seem to be better than folks think....a notch below KU, but prob just as competitive as MU, Okie St, Texas, etc....bring it on. Should be fun.
