Lack of AA at bats didn't hurt Frank Thomas either. He walked a lot in Birmingham.

That was Tom Drees, but if Bruce Tanner got any I have no idea.

Rowand needs to show me more than one year, but hes still wont be considered a bust if he reverts to his early major league career

Biggest busts have to include
the great borchardi
jeff abbott
rauch
ruffcorn
Crede is starting to look like a bust too
Rowand?

Default The 1997 draft

The entire first round draft class of 1997.
1. Jason Dellaero, No. 15 overall
1. Kyle Kane, No. 33 (for losing Alex Fernandez via free agency)
1. Brett Caradonna, no. 34 (for losing Kevin Tapani via FA)
1. Aaron Myette, no. 43 (for losing Alex Fernandez)
1. Jim Parque, no. 46 (for losing Fernandez)
1. Rocky Biddle, no. 51 (for failure to sign 1996 first rounder Bobby Seay)

I really don't care about 2000 boys. Parque and Biddle helped for a very, very brief time and were NOT stellar. We're talking BUSTS, so as first round picks they were just that. Just cuz Stacey King won a few rings doesn't mean he wasn't a bust (if you need some perspective).

The Cubs drafted Garland No. 1 in 1997 as well...but as the No. 10 overall pick in the draft that year...and for all the hype we heard when Karchner went North...he belongs on this list too.

Also in 1997....
round 2. Jeff Weaver, no. 62 (for losing Tapani)
((Say what you want, but I wish he had come aboard instead of Parque))
2. No. 67 gone to Cleveland for Albert Belle.

Just for fun...
round 3. J.R. Mounts
round 4. Curtis Whitley
round 5. Pat Danaker.

Thanks for recaping...I now realize that is the worst draft class of all time.

And unfortunately he was our starting CF on opening day the next year.

Default Bust

How about Michael Jordan? Saw him play a few times in Brimingham a few times, it was not pretty.

Ding ding ding! We have a winner!

Six first/sandwich round choices and they all flame out. One legitimate talent (Weaver) who doesn't sign. No steals in the lower rounds at all.

We've had even worse drafts (see: 1995) but never have we squandered so many high picks.

We drafted Dellaero at 15. #16? Lance Berkman.

You know who just came across my mind? Chris Snopek.

I thought he was going to be solid...
