OTC: Minneapolis Stripper Accuses Royals Pitchers Of Being Cheap / Hosmer’s Slide Continues

“I’m about shaming trashdick pro athletes @ work; the #KCRoyals players that came in last night, spent $20 were #BruceChen & @YordanoVentura.”
Isabel Kennedy, @feministstripper, a Minneapolis-area stripper, after she allegedly met the two Royals pitchers at her strip club Sunday night and was not impressed with their generosity, Twitter
GH: Isabel might need to change professions if she thinks publicly humiliating her clientele makes good business sense. MLB players stiffing strippers is about as routine as Billy Butler hitting into a 6-4-3 double play.

“Lol lol lol I didn’t believe this dude was pro MLB player bc he was so cheap just googled the KC roster ohai Bruce Chen DUDE IS WACK.”
Isabel Kennedy, @feministstripper, Twitter
GH: Isabel might be able to upgrade her profession by signing on with the Royals as a scout.

“I vote for ‘trashdick’ as Bruce Chen’s new official nickname. Bruce ‘Trashdick’ Chen just has a nice ring to it.”
Tom Ley, deadspin.com
GH: Knowing that Trashdick Chen also doubles as Yordano’s interpreter, he may have simply been at the strip club as an innocent sidekick to help Yordano communicate with Isabel and her coworkers. Judging from Isabel’s tweets, let’s hope Chen was telling the rookie starter, “Dude, $20 is too much.”

“@YordanoVentura didn’t hesitate to pull the ultimate classic #stripperproblems ‘no I don’t want dances but come back to my hotel room’ SMDH.”
Isabel Kennedy, @feministstripper, Twitter
GH: It appears Yordano speaks better English in Minnesota than he does in Kansas City. Is Isabel sure that was Yordano and not Jason Whitlock she googled?

Isabel Kennedy, @feministstripper, Twitter
GH: Strippers and professional athletes seem to be a match made in fluorescent lighting.

“I don’t know what Yordano Ventura and Bruce Chen did that was wrong. You’ve got a couple of financially responsible professional athletes here and they are being insulted by this broad! Ridiculous!”
Nolan Woodford, producer for the Day Shift, 610 AM
GH: MLB might want to have Trashdick and Ventura address the players union next spring and share their wisdom on how to be fiscally responsible on the road.

“I don’t care what guys do in their free time so I’ve got no problem with it. I could care less because a lot of us act cheap when we go to these places.”
Jay Binkley, 610 AM
GH: I would say that the motto of most men who venture into a strip club is to get out of there without taking anything home with them.

“I’ll tell you what (Christian Colon) does for the Royals, he does it for the league minimum.”
Soren Petro, on the Royals calling up their 2010 fourth overall pick in the draft, 810 AM GH: I know we are Kansas City and as Royals fans we are constantly reminded that money is the overriding issue to all the franchise’s decisions. But wouldn’t it be nice to be St. Louis Cardinals fans when it comes to doing what’s best?

“I’m happy to have Raul Ibanez back in town. I don’t care if it’s just to hang out and go to the movies! Because Raul Ibanez is a helluva good guy.”
Soren Petro, 810 AM
GH: So now we are reduced to adding 42-year-old dead weight to the Royals roster because Raul is a helluva guy? I might expect this kind of a comment from Michael Wayne or Kenny Kenny but a Syracuse-educated sports talk host like Petro?

“In six games in the two-hole, (Eric) Hosmer is 4-for-24 (.167) with four singles, two runs scored and zero RBI…”
Kurtis Seaboldt, @KSeaboldt, Twitter

“Eric Hosmer is 7 for his last 50 (since June 17th). 0 extra base hits. 1 RBI (on June 17th). 140 avg, 173 obp, 140 slg.”
Brandon H., @BHIndepMO, Twitter
GH: Hosmer hit two absolute lasers Sunday afternoon for outs. I think he looks atrocious at times at the plate but he is the Royals only option at first. He’s either going to get better or he isn’t. But Ned batting him second is simply ridiculous. I’d drop him to seventh in the order and hope the light comes on.

“Would you trade a Royals loss tomorrow for a World Cup win? I’m 50-50. That one Royals win you’re willing to throw away for a World Cup win might cost you a playoff spot. At this moment in time, the Royals don’t have any margin for error.”
Kevin Kietzman, 810 AM
GH: If Kietzman’s goal here was to rip the dunce cap from Bob Fescoe’s head as KC sports radio’s voice of idiocy, he has succeed. I understand some Royals fans care nothing about the World Cup but how cloistered do you have to be to even come up with this premise? Kietzman Cloistered, I guess. and Twitter @greghall24

    Seriously, who listens to sports radio anymore in KC? You are between the constant crap radio of 610, and the 810 folks that have just given up. I will listen to podcasts or internet radio.

  2. mike t. says:

    maybe they weren’t impressed with Isabel and her associates?

  3. Fred Flintstone says:

    KU fan, Royals Fan, Chiefs Fan, TCU fan, in that order.
    I wouldn’t give up so much as an exhibition game loss for the US winning ANY soccer (not football) match. Period. Girls flopping and faking injuries for an hour and a half just isn’t worth it.

  4. Droolcup says:

    The only shocking part of this tale of the stripper is she actually calls herself a writer. It takes someone with a very particular skill set to make Diablo Cody look like Hemingway.

    • Joe Blow says:

      Based on the initial review of her sites, she’s, yeah, a really shitty writer to boot. Her sentences. Are so short. And choppy. It would take her. Six sentences. To fill a Twitter. Post.

  5. Joe Blow says:

    I think a stripper believes professional athletes should give them a lot of money for, you know, being naked. Because that’s pretty much the extent of their skills..

  6. Kyle says:

    One thing about the 42 year old Ibanez….he has more homers than Butler.

  7. nick says:

    WAR isn’t the end-all-be-all” stat, but it’s interesting to see which KC players rank at the bottom. Out of 562 players in the A.L.:

    #483 Danny Velencia
    #508 Billy Butler
    #512 Jimmy Paredes
    #530 Eric Hosmer
    #536 Nori Aoki
    #549 Brett Hayes
    #558 Justin Maxwell

    QUIZ: Which 2 WAR bottom-dwellers are not only starters for the Royals, but bat #2 and #3 in their lineup?

    (On the flip side, Gordon is ranked 3rd, Perez 12th, Cain 17th, Dyson 30th, Escobar 39th, and Infante 104th.)

  8. KV says:

    I would like to think if I were a 23 year old starting pitcher in the bigs with hundreds of millions of dollars potentially destined to land in my bank account that I would not resort to asking warhorse strippers for a night of passion. A poor move for Trashdick as well since I don’t think sleeping on a couch for the foreseeable future is going to do his bulging disc any favors. Perhaps Steven St. John can take a picture of Soren with his arm around good ol’ Raul on the next homestand.

  9. Gassedup says:

    I have this picture of Dayton and Danny Glass with a flashlight looking in the major league trash dumpster. Danny look over there. What is it Dayton? I don’t know get a stick and flip that sack over and see what’s under it. It’s a Julio Franco no I think it’s a Raul Ibanez. Can you reach it? Hold on to my belt I think I can reach it Danny. I got it. The Royals Dumpster Diving. Gotta Believe.

  10. BlackJack says:

    Trade a Royals win for a World Cup win? Dumbest question in the world; I’d easily trade 10 Royals wins and Chief wins for a WC win. Reason being? Until the R’s and C’s make fundamental changes to the way they operate, they will NEVER win a championship in their respective leagues anyway. In addition, winning a WC would have widespread international implications, since soccer is worlds most popular sport; the Royals winning a playoff series? Nobody would care outside of the KS/MO area,

    • Joe Blow says:

      I think he’s supposed to be saying a World Cup game win, not winning the whole thing. Who knows, though — who still listens to sports talk radio?

      Are you one of the people that will forever complain about how the Royals & Chiefs are run until they actually win a championship? Because that’s a pretty easy position to take. Who actually won the last World Cup?

  11. Herb says:

    All the strippers in Minnesota look and talk like that pregnant sheriff woman in the movie Fargo. Now you understand.

  12. john doe says:

    soccer sucks. Cant wait until that fad is over

    • b12 says:

      Don’t worry, John. 30 days from now it’ll just be updates on what SKC did last night (lost, but that’s fine and perfectly understandable because it was a friendly against the Former Czech Republic all stars, so it doesn’t count in the standings, plus their best player opted to go play for Man United and the other two top players are on loan to the moon).

  13. Say What? says:

    Only because you don’t understand it.

    • Richard Cranium says:

      I don’t understand why people watch child porn, but I don’t subject myself to watching it either.

  14. Tigerpiper says:

    I want to punch Soren, St John and any other radio dude in the face when they says Ibanez is “a bat off the bench.” They forget Ned NEVER pinch hits. He thinks it is akin to castration and would never do it do one of his boys. Strike that, I want to punch Ned in the face.

    • Mike O says:

      I was kind of with you through the 1st three sentences then jumped on the bandwason with that last line. Sterling silver.

  15. Guy Who Says What Others Think says:

    Football season can’t come fast enough to this area. Once all the college football games and NFL games are over, sports talk goes right into the crapper.

  16. Greg Jones says:

    Oh my we are a small market club relax… Yankees will come soon..
