I don’t highlight a reader comment every day, but “Comment of the past 10-12 days or so” doesn’t fit in the title bar. Anyway, here’s The Common Man’s response to that knucklehead in the Daily News who wrote “But I say Kent cannot be looked at as a second baseman”:
He also can’t be looked at as a baseball player, motorcycle enthusiast, mustache-aficionado, carbon-based life-form, human being, or any of the other things that Kent undeniably is. Instead, let’s look at him as what he is not: a leftfielder, a left-handed hitter, an Arabian prince, a dishwasher, an idea. And clearly based on how he stacks up to what he is not, he’s not qualified to be in the Hall of Fame. For Jeff Kent is a piss-poor dishwasher and a mediocre idea at best.
TCM’s comparisons make just as much sense as the knucklehead’s.
