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.
