Parque was not as highly touted coming up the system as Bere was, but both of these guys had pretty good early success at the big league level, had arm problems, and lost velocity. Bere is just now throwing as hard as he did when he was with the Sox. It could be a long road ahead for Jim.

I don't think these two ever had much in common & they never will. Bere may be throwing harder, but he still won't be as good as he was. Especially since he's on the Cubs. I don't think Parque was ever that good & he never will be.

Bere was very dominant at times when he was young, parque never had what Bere did. I wonder how good Bere would be today without the surgury?
