    I still remember, after one of Felton's better outings, Calvin Griffith calling him "untouchable." I have to admit, every time i hear the word untouchable, I think not of Elliot Ness, or Miguel Sano, but only Terry Felton, the poor man's Ron Guidry.

    I believe that Felton was on the Letterman show.

    "Highabove": I think you might be thinking of Terry Forster. He was with the Twins briefly late in his career, and Letterman noticed him on TV and called him "A Fat Tub of Goo." Forster took it in good part and went on the show. I believe he cooked ribs on the show. I remember this because my girlfriend at the time was from the same town as Forster, in SoDak.

    Oh, Man, Poor Terry Felton was awful. I remember feeling really bad for the guy, but he was a bad pitcher among bad pitchers. I believe he's now a cop in Baton Rouge, LA. At least he was a couple of years ago. He was in the papers then because, if I recall correctly, his baby daughter was mauled by their family dog. I believe she made a full recovery, but Mr. Felton had to shoot the dog and was terribly shaken by it, if I remember the story. Poor guy. At least he got a taste of the show, and he seems to have made a good career and has a family.

    I'm giving away my age but I remember that episode vividly, Letterman in his prime!

    Forster was a Fat Tub of Goo though.


    Felton was bad but I might have to vote Butera Jr. ......just because.

    The worst record this side of having a 20-loss season. Some of us were afraid that Liam Hendriks would follow this same path.

    Looks like he's still there. His bio says he was a sniper on the SWAT team for several years and is now the night supervisor.
