Damn shame what happened to him. Such unrealized potential. Drugs are bad.

well, he made 5 all-star games and made 140 mil so as long as he isn't relapsing i don't feel too bad for him. he wasn't some big failure. h

i do still wonder what numbers Griffey could've put up if he had stayed healthy.
I confess that I have never seen Markelle Fultz play a basketball game and I was not at his 76ers workout Saturday in Camden

Scary to think about what might have been with a guy who hit 630 homers in his career.
