Man, I thought Drew Henson was going to be a superstar back in the day. Baseball America drooled over his athletic ability, ranking him as one of the 24 best prospects of the game in 2000, 2001, and 2002. And yet, the guy has one career big league hit to his credit in a whopping nine plate appearances. That was long before I realized that striking out in a third of your at-bats in Single-A was a bad sign. As an added bonus, Henson also busted in football, but his career earnings total something like $20M. That’s like, nine hundred and fifty grand per MLB hit and NFL pass attempt. Henson turns 31 today and was pretty much my first prospect crush, but that first bust always cuts the deepest.
Anywho, here is the open thread for the night. None of the hockey or basketball locals are playing, but there’s usually something good on TV on Sunday. You’ll survive. Talk about whatever you want here.
