8-17-12: You Might Hear

The Chiefs take on Toledo at 7:00 tonight at Alliance Bank Stadium.   If you tune in tonight to our broadcasts on Time Warner Cable Sports (Me and Steve Grilli) or on The Score 1260 (Kevin Brown), you might hear:


*The Syracuse Baseball Wall of Fame Induction Ceremony is tomorrow night.  Former Baltimore Oriole Scott McGregor will be inducted along with four others (Carlos Delgado was inducted at the Hot Stove event in February).

*Toledo starter Drew Smyly went to high school at Little Rock Central.  That’s the same school which, 55 years ago, was the test case for the U.S. Supreme Court’s Brown v. Board of Education decision.  Read more here.

*Pittsburgh Pirates right-hander Jason Grilli is allowing opponents to hit only .186 this year.

*The Nationals, at 73-45, have the best record in baseball by a full two games.

*Former Chief Horacio Ramirez has been signed by the Cubs.  Ramirez, a former Atlanta Brave starter, threw with the Chiefs in the first year of affiliation with Washington, 2009.


All this and more at 6:45 on The Score 1260 and at 7 on Time Warner Cable Sports.

To be sure, Scott Mc Gregor and Carlos Delgado are distinguished inductees, and I congratulate them. That said, any red-blooded Chiefs fan should take exception to Stuuuuuu being relegated to the “four others” category. More than any Chief I can remember, Stu captivated the fan base, and his election to the Wall of Fame is worthy of more than a reference to “four others.” It is such a momentous occasion that I would hope Steve Grilli assumes his position in the coaching box, “banjo” in hand, to welcome Stuuuuuuu back to town.
