Thank you for the article on Rafael Palmeiro, my favorite player. I entered Mississippi State in the fall of 1982 with Palmeiro and Will Clark and have watched them through their collegiate and pro careers. I thought it was unfair that Palmeiro received little recognition while Clark received the 1985 Golden Spikes Award for being college baseball's best player. Palmeiro owns or is tied for nine Bulldogs hitting records; Clark has only two.

First it was Kevin Mitchell, and now it's David Wells—two slightly above average players with few redeeming social qualities. What's next, a where-is-he-now story about Dave Kingman?
