|2011-07-07 13:00:00||RE the Wieters feud - to be fair I believe you used the term "bust" and referred to him as one of the biggest busts of all time. Right? That's a bit different than saying he's not the hitter we hoped him to be. I think if you'd called him a disappointment, we'd be in a different place. |

|Well, I regret that. In the initial article, I used the term "bust" where I meant "disappointment," and as I did the other three articles in the series so far, I've been careful to draw a line between the two terms. Any player who makes the majors and has a decent career can't be called a bust. A bust is a player like Ty Griffin, taken 9th overall by the Cubs in 1988 amidst much hype but his bat peaked in Peoria and he never made the majors. I would call, oh... Rick Manning a disappointment. Taken second overall in 1972, had a good first couple of years, got hurt, played another decade but wasn't anything more than a ballhawk in that time. (Steven Goldman)|
