That is the one that immediately jumped to mind.
This one immediately jumped in my mind as well.
In terms of biggest disappointment fantasy-wise? I'd go with Mark Prior. For non-keeper leagues, he was likely drafted very early and was a big bust for pretty much the whole year (Garciaparra and Bret Boone are up there in disappointments as well).
I agree. Prior went mid first round in some of my leagues.
I realize too that it's like beating a dead horse talking about Griffey, but, he was in the majors at 19, so being whatever he is now 33-34? is like most guys when they're 37-38ish. I know you still play in the minors, but it's a lot different than playing 162 games and the post season in the bigs. BTW I'm not trying to defend Griffey or anything, just trying to give it a little perspective.
