    Didn't Hal Morris come back a few years after being traded? I think he was around for one year or something.
    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    He was only gone 1 year.

    So did Atanasio Perez and Peter Edward Rose.

    Kevin Mitchell played incredibly well for the Reds. He did his drain-circling in Boston, Cleveland, Oakland, and Japan.

    I think he meant his brief return in 96, when he wasn't really all that anymore; he played well with the Reds but the end was near.

    More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.
