"I think Tony Peña's going to be a fine interview. And we'll have him on. [Kevin Kietzman] never said that we're not going to have him on. He never said that. He's been on, and he'll be on again. He may not be someone like a regular scheduled guest. We don't get in bed with the manager anyway." -- Todd Leabo, responding to a caller asking why Kietzman said he would not interview Peña, WHB 810
"We found that in the entire history of organized professional baseball, the Royals are only the second big-league team to hire at least seven consecutive managers without major-league managing experience. The first was the Louisville Colonels from 1882 to 1889. What does all this mean? Clearly, the Royals' managerial selections over the past fifteen years suggest that the front office does not put much credence in experience or in the notion that previous success can be an indicator of future success." -- Judd Choate, columnist, Topeka Capital Journal
"You sorry-ass fans. Be a real fan! I am so sick of Royals fans who said they wanted a new manager before they would come out to the games. You got 11,000 people out there to watch a hot baseball team. It's ridiculous. Royals fans, call up and defend yourself, because you're pathetic. I just can't understand why people won't go. Baseball is dying because the patience of the normal baseball fan is gone. You Generation-X, ADD Royals fans can't sit still long enough to have a hot dog and enjoy the pure beauty of the game of baseball. You're looking for the big Jumbotron to flash on some tits." -- Tim Grunhard, 810
"That's not very different from us." -- Bill Maas, responding to Grunhard's rant, 810
"Can you say [tits] on the radio?" -- Frank Boal, 810
GH: On 810's midday show, Crunch Time, Grunhard, Maas and Boal present the city's best radio talk show. It makes little sense that they continue to dwell in a poor time slot while 810's morning and afternoon drive-time shows slip in the ratings.
