Seriously? Caruso is NOT an attractive man.

That's what I thought when I read it too. He gave Officer Karkovice a run for his money in "Moon Crater Look-Alike Contest"

But he was a ML basbeall player making great money for a 20 year old, and liked to party. It's just stories that have been going around. He liked to drink a lot. Hunt Club was his spot when he was in Chicago.

It was more than just booze, but less than full-blown narcotics... do the math

1B: Eddie Pearson, a first round pick who didn't even hit in the minors. There was also a (Matt?) Berger who had, according to Schueler, the most power he'd ever seen. He never got out of A ball.

2B: I'm going with Willie Harris, but I'm sure I'm forgetting someone.

SS: Jason Dellaero easily over Mike Caruso.

3B: Lorenzo Gray over Chris Snopek.

LF: Jeff Abbott.

CF: Daryl Boston, but don't forget Julio Ramirez.

RF: Joe Borchard.

SP: Too easy. Almost every starting pitcher drafted in the last 25 years.

RP: Also easy. Many of the failed starters went on to fail in the bullpen.
A couple of people you can add

C:Josh Paul [i dunno if he sucked in the minors or not]

2B:Liu Rodriguez [called up on sept 2 2000,played 3 games]

RP: Chad Bradford [he's aight in my book,was expecting more out of him;the reason why i pitch sidearm]

Barcelo blew out everything, I think. He had a myriad of injuries and never could really get healthy after surgery. He went back to the Giants for a brief time could not make it there either. I am pretty sure he is out of baseball now.

Yeah. He was real solid out of the pen in 2000, I believe.

He was, I really thought he had a chance to be very good but like Rex said he just blew his whole arm up.

I think I have to call Jason Dellaero the biggest bust. For a guy who was damned near perfect defensively, he had the dumbest approach to hitting I have ever seen. He was completely unteachable and just wrong, wrong, wrong in his approach. But to watch him everyday at SS was a thing of beauty.
