Who did you think was a SURE thing who has turned out to be anything but? Anyone drop an embarrassing amount of money on a nobody? I bet there's some pretty funny 500ct RC boxes of Kaz Matsui and others hidden deep in some basements out there.
As for me, some would say that one of my PC guys -Cameron Maybin- is a bust and fits in this conversation. I still hold out hope for him putting it all together though. I'll give it a couple more years to see if he ever reaches his ceiling.

maybe it was the on field helmet
EDIT: omg... he suffered a brain aneursym in college and that is why he wore the helmet... wow thats so scary. I always thought it was just for extra protection at first due to wild balls or he was hit before... ya know?
