All-Time Studs and Busts

Recommended Posts

These are not my opinions, just examples of what I mean:

Someone may be surprised that a guy like Brandon Wood never panned out and is a bust.

A guy like Julio Franco who kept playing in his mid 40's (a player who stuck around for a while when you thought they were done). Or maybe even Big Papi who is still producing in his late 30's.

Discuss.

Love the thread title. Short and to the point.

You're looking at it all wrong. Just use the acronym P.Y.T.W.B.S.P.Y.A.S.H.A.L.C.A.P

Mark Fydrich, Joe Charbenau, Ron Kittle, Andrew Bailey

All four were ROY

the 2 pitchers though were derailed by injuries.

looking Kittle he had a nice overall career(better then I expected) but all I remembered were the injury years

Anyone ever look at Fidrych's rookie numbers? His k-rate was stupidly low, lol.

I think its a little too soon to call some of these players busts.

Like Elijah Dukes... He can still come around and have great value for a fantasy team.

Trying to stay away from guys that got hurt...

Ben Grieve. I'll never quite understand why he flamed out the way he did.

Elijah Dukes. Such a headcase but so talented.

Pitchers get hurt so frequently it's not even worth mentioning any of them.
