Had to be that H.S. shortstop we drafted Jaronsek (SP?).

We had a 21 year old starting SS in the majors that a lot of folks thought was the future. His name was Rey something or other :lol:

Made no sense at the time. I think the kid quit baseball a year or two later.

You draft on BPA. I am sure your scouting department thought he had a bright future when they recommended that he be drafted.

The Padres I think are already regretting taking Matt Bush as the 1st overall pick.

Yeah we had Reyo, Alfonso and Kent at the time so Jaroncyk made little sense. Turned out he was a big phony that liked playing baseball but didn't want to do it as a career. He was very religious yet found keeping the signing bonus not immoral at all.

If you want to include injuries then Paul Wilson and Kirk Presley top my list but then again I always felt a true bust was a guy who couldn't make it- not a guy who had an unfortunate injury. The Catcher the Mets took over Reggie in the late 60's was probably the worst in Met history.


As far as the worst ever I'd vote for Brian Taylor of the Yankees hands down.

Actually Jaroncyk had a father that pushed him to play baseball eventhough he hated to play it.

Go down half way through the article to read about it.

He'll never get out of A ball.

That was a signability pick(they didn't want to pay Verlander or Weaver)

I'd take a guy who may take me a near year to sign rather than a guy who gets in a fight with a bouncer the first week after he gets picked.
