Keep in mind I'm from Kansas City. Small market baseball here. The first thing that pops to my mind is bought championships. The second thing is probably over-the-top personality, creative, Mark Cuban, Jerry Jones and the owners we love to hate now.

Whitlock explained why Kansas City -- specifically because of the Royals and owner David Glass -- didn't like the late Steinbrenner.

Our owner in David Glass, Wal-Mart, everything on the cheap. So we look at George Steinbrenner with envy and hate. Sorry that he passed away for sure and I thought he was good for baseball. A dynasty is good for sports and he certainly created one. I don't think he and his staff of people are the smartest in baseball, I think they have the most money to spend.
