"I'm a big fan of the people on [WHB] 810. If they were to be proud of Stealing First, it would make my day. I would love to have Guido go on Jason Whitlock's show and be interviewed. He would give him a worthy sparring partner." -- Ron Simonian, creator of Stealing First, when asked if it bothers him that 810, the parent station of KCTE 1510, has yet to promote his show.
GH: I listened to the first episode of Stealing First with very low expectations. Within twenty minutes, I was laughing to tears.

"I guess they said we can't say 'bullshit' on the radio without bleeping it. One 'bullshit' got on the last show. So we have to find out if that pertains to just bull's shit or every kind of shit." -- Simonian
"I'm not antigay. I'm worried about the gate. Can't you stay straight until July? We'll be out of the race by then." -- Guido Scarpetti, to Lance Schuler, the ace of the Peasants' staff, who informs Scarpetti he's coming out of closet on opening day.
"Come watch some of the biggest names in baseball kick the Kansas City Peasants all over the diamond." -- marketing slogan proposed for the KC Peasants
"I don't want people thinking we're bashing the Royals. I love the Royals and baseball in general. I'm in three different Fantasy Baseball leagues. I take my son to fifteen or twenty games a season. I hate the fact that he is turning into a Twins fan. I'm going to make him a Royals fan if it's the last thing I do. I just wish the Royals would help me out a little." -- Simonian
"My six-year-old son loves to imitate the characters on the show. I make a disc of all the clean stuff in the show and give it to him. He thinks the show is about three minutes long." -- Simonian
