Hear, hear.  Ken Phelps had the first off-season in his career this year
with the Yanketics, but he's still gotta be the most underrated player of the
decade.  His career on-base average is either over .400 or within spitting
distance, and his home run percentage has consistently (until last year,
again) been among the league leaders.  The one season Seattle left him in
against left-handed pitching consistently, he pasted the ball just as eff-
ectively.  Is he on ***?  Does he conduct satanic rites in his locker?
If not, why oh why can't he find a DH job somewhere?  Maybe if Jim Eisen-
reich gets hurt or something...

Kal will either be the biggest mistake the Reds ever made (even though
Mariano Duncan is a potential MVP) or a historically big disappointment.
His 1987 season was absolute gold: .618 slugging average, .420 OBA, speed
and bat control.  Please, Mr. Swaggart, heal his knees.

In what league, pray tell?  Certainly not the American or National Leagues.

Shame on you.  And you too, Sherri.  The statement in question, in highly
technical net terms, is known as a JOKE; anyone within 100 miles of
Palatine, IL (my civilian abode) the day the Reds made this pathetic deal
would have known just by my screaming -- in case you didn't guess, I'm a
Reds fan -- and destruction of furniture.
