Chiefs GM Scott Pioli Likes Royals C Jason Kendall

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli appeared on the Royals and Twins telecast on Monday evening talking about his relationship with Royals GM Dayton Moore and Jason Kendall.

As it turns out, Kendall is one of Pioli's favorite players, which, frankly, isn't a big surprise considering Kendall already appears to be one of the "right 53" despite not even playing the sport.

Jason Kendall, for what he is and what he is and what he went through all those years ago and the fact that he's been able to come back and play as much and have that longevity...He's a guy I like to watch because of who he is and how he plays the game. For him to be able to continue to do what he's done and play as many games as he has, is remarkable. He's a baseball player.

He's a gamer. I don't know how many games he's caught but it seems like he's been around forever. But the injury he overcame, tha'ts  gruesome injury. Some people can't walk after going through that.

The Chiefs do like those leadership-types in the locker room. I'm not surprised Kendall is a Pioli favorite.
