While Kevin Slaten is your typical Ferrall-fare, this IS the clangheaded Duncan clan…so, Go King!
Cardinals pitching coach Dave Duncan is angry at KFNS radio, saying he was put on the air without his consent by afternoon drive-time host Kevin Slaten and is contemplating legal recourse.
The incident happened Thursday, when they had a contentious conversation that Duncan said he thought was private, but was being broadcast. In it, he called Slaten a “nasty man’’ and Slaten accused Duncan of slander.
“It certainly was unethical what he did, and probably unlawful,’’ Duncan said Friday via phone. “But that’s the way Kevin Slaten is, and that’s why I wasn’t interested in going on his show. Kevin Slaten over the years has said a lot of things that have made me angry, and this is just typical of how he operates.’‘
...(The start of the conversation on the tape isn’t that clear-cut.) Duncan hangs up. Then a clip of Duncan’s appearance a few weeks ago is played, and Slaten tees off.
“He’s either a liar or he’s the dumbest man on the face of the earth,’’ Slaten says. “He either lied when he said he didn’t come on, or he’s so stupid he doesn’t know he was on. ... Does this give you an insight what’s going on with this organization? Do you need any more?’‘
