Lyle Mouton. Big man who played in the SEC. I thought he was going to be the second coming of Big Frank.

I thought Chris Getz would be a good lead off hitter for years to come. I also liked Lillibridge more than I should have.

For me it was Tim Hullet and Joel Skinner. I thought they were future All-Stars.

Johnny Callison; after Veeck traded him after the 1959 season he went on to have a nice career. Before the 59 season the hype on Callison was huge, IIRC the Sox produced a special on him before the season and ran it on WGN. He was going to be the greatest 5 tool Sox player ever.

I also had an unhealthy hope for Kip Wells. That was probably partly due to the perfect storm of the Sox' farm system being overhyped, the availability of internet baseball news and scouting info exploding around that time, and me being in high school and gobbling it all up all the time.
Yeah, Kip Wells definitely. And here's the thing. When Kip came up for the first time in the 2nd half of, I want to say, 1999 . . . he was ****ing awesome. He was fanning people left and right and simply dominating.

Then, next season came around people thought he'd be our ace and he struggled right out of the gate and never again looked like he did in his first couple months of the majors. It ended up being Garland in the rotation for the 2nd half of 2000, not Kip.

It was just weird. Maybe he injured something and we just never heard about it.

My player in the field was Ivan Calderon.

When I was a kid my Dad had a complete man-crush on Royle Stillman. He played briefly with the Orioles for a couple years and looked good, then the Sox signed him as a free agent and he only played one season ('77) and hit about .200.

Bobby Bonilla. We stole him in the Rule 5 draft, and then Hawk traded him for Jose DeLeon.

Didn't Kip get hit by a line drive or something in spring training 2000 and after that he seemed really timid on the mound?

And my player would probably be Joe Borchard. All the hype from when he was drafted through his minor league service up until he homered in his first game, and it just never happened. Although he's the reason the Sox got Matt Thornton so there's that one positive.

You are amazing. I remember that special. It was narrated by Jack Brickhouse.

Guilty as well, with both of them. I just thought Getz was going to turn into an awesome player for some reason. I was upset when he got traded.

I always like Lillibridge too.

Guess that's why I'm not a GM.
