He was showing good power and a little potential before he got some arachnaphobia case. I think his phobia got so bad he had to leave baseball for a few years and then attempted a comeback with the Cubs. This ring a bell or does anyone know his name?


Was it Terrell Lowery?

Also I got to agree with David Nied and Nigel Wilson.

And as a Cub fan I definately have to say Pedro Valdes and Robin Jennings.
Go Cubs!

Kid was really good for a season then they figured he could not hit the curve ball........He is minor I know but for a kid of the 70s/80s it was a huge dissapointment.


Not hitting the curve could apply to Charlie Spikes of the Mid-70's Indians. He hits .270-23 the next year .230-21 and then he saw nothing but curveballs and his career ended a few years later. Never had the early succes again. :~(

pete reiser played for Brooklyn in the 1950's had some of the best skills anyone had ever seen, but kept running into walls


you don't say? :)

JR Richards would have been as good as Nolan, if he hasn't been mentioned yet.

i'll tell you about JR-every year when Houston goes on one of their playoff runs and blows it, i can't help but think they are only getting what they deserve for their shameful treatment of Richards.

Griffey has had a walk in the park compared to Richards. he just needs some of San Francisco OF's steroids. ;-D
