Most Disappointing Pirates Since Y2K


This subject came up in the "...Inability to Develop a Shorstop" thread, created by rj.reynolds..... and I decided to give it a try and see where it goes.

The idea is to create a community list of the top 10 most disappointing Pirates since the turn of the century, using a process similar to the one we used to create our Top 30 Pirate Prospects list.

From the names of those suggested so far, it appears that we shouldn't limit the list just to players. And rather than speculate on the future, we should probably use "as of right now" as the time frame, thus making Pedro a legitimate candidate. Here is a list, in alphabetical order, of those who have been suggested so far:

Alvarez, Pedro
Benson, Kris
Bullington, Bryan
Burnett, Sean
Bradley, Bobby
Duke, Zach
Hermansen, Chad
Hill, Bobby
House, J. R.
Iwamura, Akinori
LaRoche, Adam
LaRoche, Andy
Littlefield, Dave
Morris, Matt
Perez, Oliver
Snell, Ian
Tracy, Jim
Van Benschoten, John

Using that list to get calibrated, I have two requests of those who are interested:

1. Please name anyone else who should be included as a candidate.

2. Please name your tentative top 3 disappointments. I will compile the suggestions to create a "short list," so the initial poll won't be too cumbersome.

Any additional comments or suggestions are welcome.
