No, not me.
And not that one either…
That’s the one! Kevin’s a former Chiefs catcher who played 141 games for Syracuse from 1998 to 2000. Some other fun facts…
- He played parts of seven seasons in the major leagues, from 1996 to 2002, with Texas, Toronto, Milwaukee and Boston.
- He ranked fifth on the 1999 SkyChiefs with 13 home runs. (Kevin Witt’s 24 led the team.)
- He’s the highest draft pick ever from the University of Southern Indiana, as a second-rounder from 1994. (Darin Mastroianni, currently on the Twins, was a 2007 16th-rounder.)
- He never actually faced pitcher Kevin Brown. That’s really sad.
Chiefs and Clippers at 7:15 tonight. See you there.
After a day off, the Chiefs continue their Ohio tour in Columbus. Here’s what to look for in the lineup for game one of this four-game series.
1. Eury Perez returns to the team after spending 12 games with Washington. He’s batting .346 in 23 games with the Chiefs this season.
2. Brian Jeroloman in the 8-hole has been good for Syracuse in his short time here. The team is 3-0 when he is in that position.
3. Chris Rahl can extend his hitting streak to 15 games tonight. The franchise record is 22 games.
It’s another early one for the Chiefs. 10:30 A.M. against Toledo. Why don’t you grab a cup of coffee and check this out.
*In the spirit of a morning game, WAKE UP!
*The Chiefs have gone to extra innings ten times this season, but never have played this long.
*Educate yourself on what happened on this day in history.

*A rough getaway day in California for the Nationals.
Chief of the Day: Sergio Santos. For parts of three seasons, Santos manned shortstop in Syracuse. He hit just.214 in 128 games in 2006. Three years later, the White Sox picked him up and made him into a pitcher. In 2011, Santos saved 30 games for the Sox. He has since moved on to Toronto and yesterday, unfortunately, was placed on the 60-day DL after right elbow surgery.
10:15 is our airtime today as the Chiefs take on the Hens. Join us for waffles. You bring the syrup.
The Chiefs look for their second straight win to open up this road trip and this series with the Mud Hens.

*Micah Owings is coming off one of his best hitting nights of the season. He went 2-5 with 2 doubles.
*Jeff Kobernus is back up to third in the league in average with a 3-5 performance Saturday. He’s hitting .348 on the season.
The Chiefs weathered an eight-hour bus ride overnight and got into the Park Inn Toledo around 7:30 A.M. Tonight, they face a Mud Hens team which nearly swept Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Here’s Tony Beasley’s starting nine:
Chris Rahl RF

Corey Brown CF
Micah Owings DH
Zach Walters SS
Carlos Rivero 3B
Brian Jeroloman C
*Will Rhymes was a member of the Mud Hens, in part, from 2008 until 2011. He played in 165 home games in Toledo over that time and hit .297 at Fifth Third Field.
*Catcher Brian Jeroloman makes his first start of the season with Syracuse tonight. If the name’s familiar, it’s because he played in 25 games with the Chiefs in July, August and September with the 2008 Chiefs. He hit .200 in 75 at-bats that year, the final season with the Blue Jays.
*Zach Walters moves down to the seven position for just the sixth time this season. He’s been found most often in the six spot (34 starts).
*Jeroloman is the 14th nine-hole hitter the Chiefs have used in 2013.
