2010-07-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who's the biggest sabermatric flameout of all time? Bobby Estalella? Jackie Rexrode? Roberto Petagine? Someone else?
(Bob from Seattle)
Wow, that's a great list, though there's a difference between not producing and never getting the chance to produce. I can't add to it other than to add my own personal nemesis: Chad Orvella, who I drafted based on PECOTA's unabashed, notes in the lunchroom crush on him. That didn't turn out well. (Ken Funck)
