A couple of guys at work and I were just chatting, and the subject of Brad Bergesen came up.  So I had to look him up, to see where he is now.

 

The Chinuchi Dragons.

 

Want to know who else is on the Chinuchi Dragon's roster?  Take a look for another blast from the past:

One of the great all-time busts of the last 20 years of Orioles baseball. Talent to be a RH Randy Johnson with a head that couldn't figure it out.
The kids are alright.

when I think of busts, I don't really include DC on the list, because he was an undrafted, amateur signing. if I remember correctly, he was a catcher when they signed him. but his arm was so strong, they converted him to pitching. when you think about it like that, he actually got a lot out of his very raw talent, especially since he had zero history of pitching before signing with the O's. and he arrived with no fanfare. it wasn't until he had his first (and very rare) amazing game that people started squealing at the possibilities.

 

but you're right. the guy was just plain stupid. he had no interest in learning anything. I liked him to a caveman. his instincts told him to club a female over the head, then drag her back to his cave. after that, he was lost.

Though I don't doubt your comments, I cannot recall any instance where he tried to take a bat to Amber Theoharis...or Roch Kubatko.  Please elaborate

Please be gentle with weird-O and bmore ken. They're a very fragile couple who will put you on "ignore" if you hurt their feelings.

You have no understanding of the term bust.
